Overheard: ERP software is a serious relationship

For years we have said no and we’ve done so with good reason. An ERP package is an advanced system. It isn’t Microsoft Office and it isn’t an iPhone. You can’t simply turn it on and expect it to run without training.”

Rebecca Gill, Why Doesn’t This ERP System Work?

    Sorry, but I have to disagree with you.  If you have decent manuals available on line, a good programmer/analyst can easily learn it.  I've been programming since 1963, and if a system has a manual, I can learn it on my own.  Since I left college in '68, I've had no formal training. Just get me a manual and turn me loose.  I've done everything from solo designs of systems for small businesses to working on major applications in healthcare and manufacturing.
