In addition--and this may surprise you--people find the actual ERP discussions, project management and implementations about as exciting as visiting Gramps in the nursing home--you have to do it every once in a while and it usually leaves you feeling pretty depressed and worn down afterward.
But enterprise applications such as ERP (and CRM, BI and others, for that matter) are absolutely essential for businesses these days.
