In this podcast, Mark Jordan, director of global ERP for Monsanto, discusses the company's SAP implementation, including tips and best practices, how the company measures ROI, and how it develops its ERP roadmap to stay on top of upcoming issues.
Monsanto won the Americas' SAP Users' Group (ASUG)'s Impact Award for large enterprises. Every year, ASUG issues awards to companies that use SAP in particularly innovative ways.
