CUNYfirst Lehman Enterprise Resource Planning systems project
CUNY’s Enterprise Resource Planning systems (ERP) project is a major change initiative designed to create a unified and integrated campus. The project will replace various legacy computer systems and promote an integrated CUNY. The system will be implemented in phases over the next five years. The goal is to save $26 million in productivity by the end of the project.
Initially, the goal was to implement a single, enterprise-scale system that would encompass all business processes on campus. This system would have saved money by eliminating the need to maintain a variety of disparate systems and would have provided information access for all stakeholders. But CUNY’s focus on an all-encompassing, centralized system severely limited its options.
