What exactly is Enterprise Resource Planning...

 
#1 What exactly is Enterprise Resource Planning...
23/01/2008 14:33

Alan_T

Hi,

Like a poster below me in the forum I am considering applying for Deloitte's Enterprise Resource Planning service-line, as along with TI it is the only option left still open for Consulting [Grad Level] (FYI: This is known as Enterprise Applications in Deloitte)...

Therefore, before I make my application I just wanted to find out a few things - can someone give me an insight into:

- What exactly this service-line entails?

- Examples of the type of work/projects I would be involved in?

- The Skills/Qualifications I am likely to gain?

- Demand for this skill within the industry?

- Exit options? (would this option rule out future MC strategy jobs?)

- The main differences in my experience/qualifications/training compared to a strategy analyst (either within Deloitte or a strategy house)

I am aware there are descriptions of ERM/EA on Deloitte’s website and on the internet - but I am keen to hear from people who have first hand experience in this service-line...

Many thanks in advance - very much appreciated!

Why apply for something that you know nothing about? Basically, it means installing SAP!

I want to work for Deloitte Consulting - so wanted to know more about EA as it is the only option left - good enough reason I would say.

Can you give me more info please??

Alan_T to anon (#8)

Right, let’s clear this mess up…

I said I wanted to know **MORE** about EA at Deloitte...as I stated:

QUOTE:

''I am aware there are descriptions of ERM/EA on Deloitte’s website and on the internet - but I am keen to hear from people who have first hand experience in this service-line...''

END QUOTE.

So anon (ii) I have tried Google, Deloitte.com and read through the SAP website - I was hoping to find out more from the people who are IN Deloitte, as I wanted to know **MORE** about:

QUOTE:

- Examples of the type of work/projects I would be involved in?

- The Skills/Qualifications I am likely to gain?

- Demand for this skill within the industry?

- Exit options? (Would this option rule out future MC strategy jobs?)

END QUOTE.

Clearly I am interested in this service-line from the descriptions I have read on-line and I think my questions are all perfectly reasonable from someone with no experience in this industry/service-line...if anybody had bothered to actually read my post - instead of just jumping on the bandwagon for a cheap shot...i.e. greendotlifer and anon (i) and anon (ii).

I am a graduate trying to find out information about EA - I think you are being very harsh here.

Anyone who is willing to help me, it would be great to hear from you.

Thanks in advance, Alan.

Alan_T to hmmm (#10)

O dear hmmm....I am more than capable of having a laugh – I don’t think I am going to get too worried about some forum chat, am a big enough boy to withstand that :)

All I said was that I think people were being a bit harsh on me for what I see as a reasonable question...and all I would like I some help...which would be greatly appreciated.

But I have to say the constant ''F***ing's'' coming my way go some way to illustrate the completely over the top responses...banter is fine but no need to slam me, it was only a question :(

So calm the F*** down 'hmmm' and give some help...pls :p

Alan_T to The Senior Vice President (#13)

I am glad to have made some people on this forum happy with my approach; I feel that I am very much the marmite of this forum…

Btw SVP if you are looking for a graduate with no bull and an excellent ability for creating structured approaches to problem solving - just let me know...my CV is itching to go :)

Don't know if SVP employs grads. I remember him saying once that nearly everyone at his company goes home by 6...

Bob to anon (#15)

SAP, Siebel, Oracle.

Check out the "about us" link on their websites.

Working for the service line, you would be selling, designing, implementing and testing these systems for clients.
