In this article, the authors describe a new role for management accountants related to the design and implementation of enterprise resource planning (ERP) applications. Their intimate involve-ment, working with leaders to identify the reports and analyses necessary for making business decisions, ensures that, working backward, the data elements that will be required are included in design requirements.
