Leeds City Council swallows the Gartner glossary and orders up 'post-modern' ERP in £44m SAP replacement

I've worked on the ERPs for most of the major councils. This isn't a surprise and Leeds’ systems must be long in the tooth by now.

It won't take 20 years to implement, it's intended to be a 20 year relationship.

But these systems are hard to get right. In particular councils have a large number of pay conditions which means implementing a working HR and payroll system is harder than it sounds.
