Big bang adoption

This content was COPIED from BrainMass.com - View the original, and get the already-completed solution here!

Dear expert,
I was studying the ERP implementation strategies recently, and here is a problem related to the big bang approach that I feel a little bit hard to solve.

Could you explain it in terms of data warehousing implications, business culture, implications and disruption to operations? I need some idea about it.
Thanks!

Regards
