Modern ERP systems address many of the challenges associated with legacy solutions which often served their purpose for a period of time but now lag significantly behind upstart and revamped ERP solutions.  These legacy solutions have not kept pace with rapid changes occurring in the business environment including globalization, outsourced manufacturing, remote workforce deployment, leaner in house IT departments, the emergence of social networks, cloud technology, and an ever increasing competitive environment requiring greater efficiency and agility to stay on top of the competition.
