The recipe for choosing a successful ERP partner

Steak pie 

When it comes to my favourite meal it has to be my wife's steak, mushroom, port, and stilton pie. She uses the best rib-eye steak with just enough fat to help give extra flavour to the dish. The mushrooms are a mix of large Portobellos with a small amount of porcinis to give that additional earthy taste, then a splash of Port and a generous handful of mature stilton, making the gravy thick and creamy. All this is topped off with the flakiest, crunchiest puff pastry and served with delicious new potatoes.

If you're feeling hungry now, sorry about that. Me too. But this isn't just an excuse to talk about my wife's cooking, it's actually a handy way to represent an ERP project.
