Supply Chain Experts View of ERP vs Best-of-Breed

As ERP providers continue to improve the functionality of their supply chain applications, such as warehouse management and transportation management, the question many companies are asking is whether these systems are now "good enough" for their needs. To help answer that question, we assembled a panel of three of the most respected supply chain experts and asked them to share their thoughts. All have many years of supply chain consulting and analysis experience, and have worked closely with both ERP and Best-of-Breed solutions. The panel includes John Hill, an industry icon and currently a principal with TranSystems, Dan Gilmore, the founder and editor of Supply Chain Digest, and Ken Mullin, a senior consultant for EnVista. In this video they speak freely about the arguments on both sides of this question.
