5 5 ERP/EAM Market Trends Recognition of the value of moving to a fully integrated solution has produced a strong acceptance of packaged applications Best Practices & External Managed Services to reduce Total Cost of Ownership, improve overall customer satisfaction, and increase profitability The acknowledgement of a business model that supports integration of strategic partners into a position of accountability within the corporations The cost and complexities associated with acquiring, retaining and maintaining skilled resources is a consistently underestimated challenge

6 6 What is Enterprise Application Management? Defining the Solution: EAM can be delivered as a managed service or as supplemental support to existing capabilities An Enterprise Application Management (EAM) partnership provides functional and application management of your integrated enterprise software packages by using a remote, leveraged, professional staff.

11 Ver 2.02 2000-MAR-28 Approaching Clients Approaching Clients Initial Conversations

12 12 EAM - Qualification Likely growth candidates for EAM services Currently uses one of the following ERP packages: – SAP – Oracle – PeopleSoft – JD Edwards Supports the application with in-house personnel, 3rd party services supplier, or with EDS dedicated personnel Wants to decrease expenses associated with supporting ERP Has a good relationship with EDS Wants to increase ROI on ERP investments NOTE: Detailed Sales Qualification Checklist is available on What We Sell

13 13 Now that you’ve had your “ERP” system running for awhile, how are things going for you? I know it takes a lot more than most people anticipate to support, and I was just wondering how you’re doing. Besides the hundreds of ERP clients we support today, EDS has internally implemented SAP - so we’re very tuned into the complexity of support and the end-user perspective of using ERP systems. How is your support team working out? What’s the satisfaction level of the users? Do you think you’ll be able to handle growth? Are you reaching your expected ROI? When EDS is not providing support today: Lead-in Conversation

14 14 Lead-in Conversation When EDS is providing on-site support today: Your discretion on starting a cost reduction conversation, but the reason for pitching EAM in this scenario: If EDS is contractually obliged to provide year-over-year reductions in the cost to the client to support the applications, while also maintaining the same or better service levels, EAM may provide a means of delivering to both goals. Be aware that if EDS is currently providing dedicated and/or on-site personnel without the year-over-year cost reduction commitment, the CDE may want to consider the switch to EAM at renewal time, as existing revenue streams can be at risk.

21 Ver 2.02 2000-MAR-28 Approaching Clients Approaching Clients Client Frequently Asked Questions

22 22 Client FAQ How does EAM affect ROI for ERP? By using a remote, leveraged delivery model, EDS can leverage resources across multiple clients, allowing each client to pay only for the amount of service required - not for full FTEs that may or may not be utilized 100% of the time. When EAM provides consistent services such that the ERP system integrity and availability are assured, clients are then able to provide consistent service to their own customers. EAM resources can bring to bear their experience caring for multiple clients to address certain issues of any one client. Additionally, the experience of an entire worldwide team of experts can be tapped into for quick resolution of any issues. EAM services are structured to help clients find areas for business improvements as well as IT improvements.

23 23 Client FAQ (cont.) What are primary cost drivers of EAM? Number of module suites - each suite (ex. Financials, Mfg, etc.) requires a separate functional skill set Types of module suites - Manufacturing and Payroll are complex and drive higher skill set and/or more volume of skill set Named users - drives Help Desk costs (logging, tracking, functional expert time spent, potential data errors) Interfaces - drives potential of ERP system failures Customization - amount and type of customization drives technical programmers and functional experts required NOTE: EAM is largely a labor intensive service using a specialized skill set, where the supply is far short of the demand - hence, the need to leverage what is available.

24 24 Client FAQ (cont.) How can I be comfortable with the support staff being remote? In today’s world, service companies are finding that the most economical way to provide consistent service to a large client base (especially using scarce specialized skill sets) is in a remote, leveraged model. If the service company can provide services in a way that are internally economically viable, the client price will be reflective of the efficiencies. Current technologies, standard methodologies, and collaborative processes allow the support staff “down the hall” of yesterday to be virtually anywhere in the world, yet able to provide support at a moments notice. The EAM Program Manager will be on-site periodically to ensure service levels are being met and collaborate with the client on the most effective and efficient direction for increasing the value of their ERP strategic asset.

25 25 Client FAQ (cont.) What kind of service level commitments can I expect? This is defined by the service level agreement. Service levels consist of standard base services, standard uplifts, and can extend to custom service levels. What kind of pricing can I expect? Pricing is driven by the number of seats being serviced, the number of ERP modules that the client uses, and the service levels that govern the relationship. An apples-to-apples comparison of in-house or dedicated service level costs with those of the EAM offering should conservatively yield a 10% or better reduction in support costs.

26 26 EAM Solution Alternatives 1 EAM with EDS Apps Hosting Assumed starting solution 2 EAM with client in-house managed hosting Slight increase in Help Desk and communication line costs; minimal collateral and delivery procedure updates

27 27 EAM Solution Alternatives 3 EAM with 3rd party managed hosting Slight increase in Help Desk and communication line costs; minimal collateral and delivery procedure updates 4 EAM plus Application Administration* services Additional FTE skill set and Help Desk (technical) ongoing costs; pull together EAM and Apps Hosting collateral and delivery procedures *Application Administration services (installation and tuning, application & db monitoring, performance admin., system admin., application upgrades) are typically sold under EDS Apps Hosting, but can be included with EAM if EDS is not the Hosting provider.
