As it can be seen, the government in the UK is disjointed. Some departments have changed into others making it somewhat confusing to an average person in the UK.

The cost implications for all departments are also not organized properly. Implementing an ERP solution to bring all departments together could be an effective solution. By utilizing an ERP system, all governments could all be grouped into their respective departments. After doing so, statistical data could be compiled and calculated; thus creating a viewer a sense of the finances of the UK on a large scale, thereby understanding the needs of each department on a whole.

Facilities management of each department could also be addressed in the same manner, giving each department a better sense of where they need to address such concerns. HRMS platforms could also be implicated as well for each department. Good management is important for the UK Government to succeed. All of these components of the UK government should be addressed and ERP should be a part of the UK governments plans in having a more effective system for them as a whole.

One department of government in the UK could check on the other in an instant, knowing in real time if they needed, how each one was doing. All UK government departments could organize their systems in such a way that, each one could be easily found by the other when any concerns need to be addressed among one another.

It would be concrete and secure as well. Only certain individuals would be able to utilize the system in the ways that they specifically need. Passwords generated and own areas of concern clearly seen. By managing such matters in this way, there would be no room for errors.

If organized in this way, the UK government could potentially see results and changes to their overall economy. The reason for this is they could clearly and accurately see where their growths and losses lie and would have a current view of this all the time. This would benefit everyone in the UK itself.

With technology evolving so quickly, it is of utmost importance for the UK government to adopt such features into their departments. It would greatly assist in many important matters that are currently happening that need to be addressed, and done so urgently. It is for these reasons that ERP must be considered. It would bring all departments together in an organized fashion that anyone could easily understand in the end.

With careful strategic planning and consideration, this can be accomplished. The end result would be an ERP system that the UK government would be able to utilize effectively. Providing a new platform that would be useful for years to come.
