Well the topic is not specified to ERP. It must focus on the ERP implementation, benefits, strategies, packages used and so on.

Here are some ideas, but they may be a bit off topic for you.

be sure to get a large number of ERP solutions since there is a huge range in prices and features.

[large applications}
PeopleSoft
Oracle
SAP

[Medium apps]
Great Plains
JD Edwards
Lawson
Epicor



also, don't forget to include training costs.  PeopleSoft classes run between 1,000 and 3,000 per person per class (1 week training at a PeopleSoft site like Chicago IL, Miami FL, Pleasantan CA, New Jersey, Ohio, etc).  It folks had to take an average of 4 classes and functional leads needed at least 3 classes.  I believe our company spent about 50K on PeopleSoft training (including travel expenses).
