One of the main promises of an ERP implementation is the ‘full integration of a business’. Reports of shadow systems in post ERP implementations suggest that this is not always the case.
Critical data and systems are dependent on a good understanding of all data assets within the enterprise.

Put another way, knowledge about the location and content of data in your enterprise applications is a valuable asset.
Therefore, companies need a new system. The value of such a system lies in its ability to more efficiently classify and organize information, as well as to yield deeper insight into the actions taking place across your business, providing more intelligence and higher quality information to fuel big data initiatives, automation, compliance, data sharing, collaboration and more
