ERP Live! An alternative look at building a business case for modernisation with London City Airport, Microsoft and HSO

Conventional wisdom tells us that quantifying the business case for transformation is a top priority. CFOs like to know how their investment will be repaid and many project sponsors place ROI at the top of the list before signing off on technology spend. However, it’s not always possible to put a dollar amount on the benefit – some organisations with a sound underlying business but poor systems simply cannot extract the data from their legacy technology to make this calculation easy.

The need for a modern finance system was evident: the business was not able to report or analyse its financial data and was being held back by aging cumbersome applications. Manual process were stifling agility and the finance function was grinding to a halt. Should time and effort be spent hopelessly trying to create a data lead business case or could LCA push forward with its modernisation plans leveraging the predicated benefits of great visibility, improved reporting and dramatically enhanced user experience?
