Enterprise Resource Planning and Systems Integration 2 Enterprise Resource Planning integrates internal and external management information across an entire organization, embracing finance/accounting, manufacturing, sales and service, customer relationship management, etc. ERP systems automate this activity with an integrated software application (Hossein, 2004). The ERP is “Web enabled”, meaning that they work using Web clients, making them accessible to all of the organization’s employees, clients, partners, and vendors from anytime and anyplace, thereby promoting the BU’s effectiveness (Motiwalla & Thompson, 2012). The fundamental advantage of ERP is that integrating the myriad processes by which businesses operate saves time and expense. Decisions can be made more quickly and with fewer errors. Data becomes visible across the organization (Vikki, 2010). The disadvantages comes from the tight budget organizations allocate to personnel training thus resulting inadequate use of ERP systems and poor testing and implementing of changes. The experience and skill of the personnel has a major influence on the efficiency of the ERP systems. (Mutt, Nick. N.d). There are several organizations that choose ERP as an option. I have found three sources, scenarios the companies should be aware, or have consideration for their Planning and System Integration in their ERP projects. The first research paper, Enterprise Resource Planning Systems: a research agenda; written for Majed Al-Mashari. This paper was retrieved from: http://w3.cyu.edu.tw/ccwei/PAPER/ERP/ERP%20research%20agenda(IMDS).pdf The research is divided in three different sections: ERP adoption, technical aspects of ERP and ERP in Information Systems curricula. The nuclear part of the investigation is to understand how ERP combines both organizational business processes and total organizational IT into one integrated system (Chung & Snyder, 2000); several ERP issues and where the future researches in the area will be focus.
