The systems almost always involves a single database to handle all the data of all the software programs that integrate into the ERP system. This database interacts with the business objects created from the ERP modular system and software to create a unified structure with one database server (or multiple mirrors). The monetary impact of this organized structure allowing all departments and employees access to the same data is enormous. The processes and efficiency of the business increases 10 atleast fold and the reliability is unmatched, as long as you have excellent support
. This impact is only achieved by proper deployment, maintenance and support of the enterprise system. Data repair
, backup and maintenance can be seen as possibly one of the most critical components of keeping an ERP system like Sage Accpac ERP smoothly running with maximal uptime.
