Microsoft Flexes ERP Muscle

When CACI International Inc. wanted to create an advanced budgeting and reporting software tool for federal agencies, it didn’t want to reinvent the wheel. Instead, the systems integrator sought to build on applications its customers had to minimize user resistance.

CACI turned to Microsoft Corp., whose popular office applications are used by about 90 percent of government agencies.

“We didn’t want to start from scratch, but wanted to go with something that users were familiar with; so that the rate of adoption became very easy,” said Ravi Dankanikote, a CACI vice president.

The result was CACI Enterprise Budget, built on a Microsoft Dynamics enterprise resource planning product. Microsoft’s Dynamics line also includes solutions for customer-relationship and supply-chain management. to See the Full Article click here.
