Mark P. Ressler and Jason S. Takenouchi Co-Author “ERP Implementations in the Public Sector: Special Challenges”
Kasowitz partners Mark P. Ressler and Jason S. Takenouchi have co-authored “ERP Implementations in the Public Sector: Special Challenges,” published in Government Technology. In the article, the authors discuss key risks that public entities must consider and be prepared to address when implementing enterprise resource planning software to run their agencies and departments. The authors note that to minimize those risks, states and municipalities “need to make informed decisions about whether an ERP system is the right choice, exercise due diligence in selecting the software and the firm that will implement it, and direct their procurement teams to pay close attention to contract provisions.”
