This presentation outlines the systems replacement programme embarked upon at HP Bulmer in the early 1990s, based on an Open Systems, Oracle-Unix technology strategy. The presentation charts the rationale and major projects involved in a 5-year new systems roll-out, and focuses on key benefits set against costs. The presentation shows how (in slide 43) the overall bottom-line benefits were to outweigh total costs of very significant investment from 1998 onwards, this having been achieved by capitalising all project costs and depreciating them over a 7-year period. The presentation also highlights (in slides 44-46) the need for Oracle to provide a fully integrated ERP product with functionality in all key areas of a process manufacturing company to match the product offering of other major ERP vendors of the day, notably SAP. This, they subsequently achieved, through acquisition and integration of other third party software products.
