Accuride, a supplier of wheels for the trucking industry is on an implementation journey that includes Plex, Workday and SAP.
The story has important implications for those faced with disparate landscapes and where the prospect of getting to a 'one-size fits all' doesn't fit.

For example, we easily forget that different geographies have different laws concerning the export of data, which, in turn, changes the technology decision dynamic. Similarly, some countries have poor internet connectivity making the choice of moving to the cloud much more complex, if not impossible.

Finally, we talk about IoT and other advanced technologies. You'll be in for a surprise if you think that this industry is going full speed on these topics.
