The problem

A lot of time is wasted in SAP software testing and maintenance processes due to incomplete or incorrect error reports from users and testers. Support people (analysts, developers) usually have to ask for more information about the error. This takes a lot of valuable working time from both the reporters of the error and support people. Solving the problem is often blocked until all information is available.

Did You Get the ROI You Anticipated? - by Sean Elliffe of Reveal

Sean Elliffe, from Reveal, has written a great blog around whether folks are getting the ROI from their SAP implementation or not. An excerpt from Sean's blog...

Transactions all are working, and the system is collecting and building data that is rich in content for analysis and improved decision-making. All the same, a question more often posed than not is “Did you get the ROI you anticipated? ... we hear of many anticipated expectations, most of which were key in influencing the cost-benefit decision. Some of these include: 31% reduced direct and indirect shop labor costs, 22% improved profits from better practices, better inventory, increased turns and streamlined purchasing...

Brazil Suspends Pharma Serialization And Tracing Requirements | RxTrace
