9 9 Pearson’s business strategy and organization culture has yielded a relatively diverse, decentralized portfolio of ERPs implemented at the region/operating company level. Business process standardization within Pearson occurs largely at the region/operating company level due to market demands. Consequently, Pearson has adopted a decentralized IT strategy, with implementations occurring at the region/operating company level.

14 14 Exercise What should Pearson do? Identify three strategies – Identify business risks with each strategy

15 15 Supply Chain Technology: Strategy Pearson has adopted a decentralized strategy, with implementations occurring at the region/operating company level. While supporting all the operating companies from a single ERP is desirable, the cost to consolidate is high and difficult to justify, and the process standardization required could inhibit business performance. Pearson’s Roadmap sets a course to: Maintain a decentralized approach Allow ‘scope’ to meet regional /operating company requirements Upgrade as versions go end-of-life Govern introduction of new systems Consolidate and standardize when cost justified

16 16 Case Study: Asia September 2004: Consolidate business units into a single ERP instance NPV: $954.9 K | IRR: 37 % | Payback: 1.3 years Goals: Standardize business processes & operating procedures across the region Reduce long-term costs (IT, Customer Service, Finance) Improve utilization of IT systems & resources Provide standard system platform for operation Scope (Locations): Hong Kong, Taiwan, Korea, Japan, Singapore and Malaysia Hong Kong hosting location and support center MPLS connectivity for each country access
