New Accenture research unequivocally shows that successful implementations of enterprise systems drive corporate financial performance.

Extensive research conducted between 2005 and 2006 by Accenture's Enterprise Solutions group and the Accenture Institute for High Performance Business shows that enterprise systems, once derided as "generic IT," have the potential to provide organizations with a basis for developing distinctive capabilities. Enterprise system processes and services enable companies to differentiate themselves from competitors and outperform industry peers.
