At the same time, steady up is still up. To quote the musical Pajama Game:

I figured it out
I figured it out
With a pencil and a pad I figured it out!
Seven and a half cents doesn't buy a hell of a lot,
Seven and a half cents doesn't mean a thing!
But give it to me every hour,
Forty hours every week,
And that's enough for me to be living like a king!

@Rich: Very true. Research work has identified it as at the younger ages 95% are very creative and independent and they do not worry about what happens NEXT. That maybe one factor which influences this a lot

BPR is a precursor to ERP

In my opinion, implementation of ERP means not just the transformation of the systems we use but also the transformation of the the way we do business. 

So business process reengineering is a step that we must take before we decide to implement an ERP.

This exercise involves shading away the outdated processes to embrace the new while retaining all the old data because that is one of the valuable asset the company has accumulated over the years.
