The Future of the ERP Suite explains why the current concept of a single vendor ERP suite that also includes non-ERP apps such as CRM or SCM, is about to undergo a major transformation. Users demand for more finely grained automation of real-world business processes (best-of-breed apps) combined with industry standards based service oriented architectures will require ERP suite vendors to replace their suites with fine grained business process catalogs.
