SAP partner Optimal Solutions Integration's new FlexChoice Advantage program allows customers the ultimate flexibility not just in how to deploy SAP Business All-In-One, but also how they pay for it.

It's been more than 10 years since the first ERP boom swept through corporate America, changing the face of IT departments large and small.

"We were telling customers back then that these ERP solutions had a 10- to 15-year lifecycle, and we're rapidly approaching the end of that cycle."
