In sports as in business there are many distractions, lots of potential focal points, the noise of the crowd, the position of the players, the court location, the lights, the subtle movements.
“The key is not the will to win… everybody has that. It is the will to prepare to win that is important.”
Being able to see the field of play is what many people call “experience” but, experience can be accelerated. This applies to both sports and in business.
Business too has long had a grasp on its internal systems with ERP that manages their finance, production logistics and service. But now business is more virtual, linkages with partners are as critical as internal departments, and is an abundance of data from which companies can gain better insights into their customers needs.
Staying ahead of the game means harnessing both ERP data and external data, structured and unstructured and using analytics to convert insights into intelligence and actions.And for most businesses, this means replacing their legacy ERP for a more modern and intelligent ERP with analytics integrated across the enterprise.

Timing is everything
Timing truly is everything when it comes to ERP transformation. If a business waits too long, they miss out on any prospect to make the right decisions at the right time – which is, nowadays, always real time.
To be an unrivaled champion in today’s marketplace, businesses have no choice but to break out of their departmental silos and ensure every organization works together in unison. HR, finance, sales, procurement, supply chain, among others must leverage one source of truth to accelerate and dynamically scale their response with speed and automation.
Although the pivot to ERP transformation is a long-haul game, business leaders would serve their organizations well by following this last bit of wisdom from Bobby Knight: “The will to succeed is important, but what’s more important is the will to prepare.”
As modern ERP systems continue to evolve with more intelligent capabilities embedded, the better the opportunity to achieve a level of autonomy that makes businesses more knowledgeable, fast-acting, and strategically precise.
