Special Issue "Enterprise Resource Planning Systems"
A special issue of Systems (ISSN 2079-8954).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (15 December 2015)
Enterprise Resource Planning systems (ERPs) have been around for a long time and varying levels of success have been reported. This Special Issue is looking at how well the ERP is actually working at an operational level within an organization. There is evidence suggesting that ERPs are not being used as effectively as their original design would indicate and employees are finding ways to work around the ERP in order to get their work done more easily and in some cases more quickly. There is also evidence to suggest that this has been facilitated by our increasingly networked world with standalone applications and cloud computing functions allowing employees to bypass critical ERP functions. Many of these functions are important components of the original design with respect to the stated aim of integrating an organization’s ICT in order to provide a “single point of truth” for management. In this issue, we are calling for papers that address this concern as well as looking at future trends in this area that may further enhance or diminish the functionality of an ERP.
