The Rise of ERP and Digital Transformation in Businesses

Tuesday, February 16, 2021. HashMicro and EQUIP, in collaboration with Satya Wacana Christian University, organized a webinar entitled ‘Unlocking your Competitive Skill: The Rise of ERP and Digital Transformation in Business,’ which was held online. The resource person in the first session was Lusiana Lu as the Business Development Director of HashMicro. Then followed by Jayson Komajaya as EQUIP Functional Analyst and Lusy Pratiwi as EQUIP Business Development in the second session. Aditya Pradana, an account executive at HashMicro, served as the event’s moderator and continued the theme of digital transformation.

Opened with a speech from Evy Yeniarti as Satya Wacana Career & Alumni Center Director, the first part of this webinar discusses the current digital transformation in Indonesia and upcoming trends. The theme was chosen in light of the current situation, where the disease has expanded, and firms without technological know-how are having difficulty. Therefore, businesses must also adapt by carrying out digital transformation.

The second part discusses how an ERP system can develop a business. In carrying out their operational activities, companies often face several common difficulties, such as double-entry problems where staff repeatedly input the same data. This is, of course, inefficient and prone to errors. Besides, it is also related to the challenges in maintaining servers, which are complex and require a lot of money. The organization handles every aspect of technology adoption, from infrastructure to software purchases.

Therefore, an ERP system is here to solve the problems experienced by businesses. Businesses will have a single integrated system with centralized storage for all data thanks to an automated cloud solution. Besides, because it only uses virtual storage, companies can also save costs because they no longer have to buy hardware and pay maintenance costs for conventional servers. This session concluded with a demonstration of how an ERP system can be reasonable based on its features and capabilities. The ERP program used in this case was EQUIP from HashMicro.

Participants in the webinar were Satya Wacana Christian University students and graduates from a variety of areas, including accounting, information engineering, and information systems. Regardless of their origins, they remained to be enthusiastic, especially when answering questions regarding the topics of the previous lectures.

According to Lusiana Lu, the conditions for implementing digital transformation in Indonesia are still uneven. Many and fast occur in labor-intensive industries such as transportation, finance, and online media. Meanwhile, the heavy equipment industry, namely manufacturing, mining, gas, and oil, is still running slowly.

Some of the causes for this problem are limitations in several elements related to IT. For example, budget, manpower, and infrastructure. Coupled with the lack of research and development centers and costs. However, with full digital transformation, Indonesia is predicted to grow to 2,000 T rupiah between 2016 and 2025, per McKinsey’s report titled Unlocking Indonesia’s Digital Opportunity 2016. Thus, opportunities are wide open for graduates of informatics engineering and information systems.

One means of digital transformation is an ERP system. This software can bring about revolutionary changes in various modern business processes. These software applications can simplify essential business functions such as financial management, accounting, and inventory management. The 2018 Asia Pacific ERP market was 124,000 T rupiah and of this amount, Indonesia contributed 3 T rupiah. According to Lusiana, ERP will receive a lot of attention shortly. She advises students to be ready because job prospects in this sector will expand but face intense competition.
