Research: Enterprise Resource Planning.
According to Sharda (2015), Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) was
designed to help large companies manage the fragmentation of information
stored in hundreds of individual desktop, department, and business unit
computers across the organization. These modules offered IS department
in many large organizations an option for switching from
underperforming, obsolete mainframe systems to client-server
environments designed to handle the changing business demands of their
operational counterparts. Many firms moved from their troubled systems
in the late 1990s to avoid the year 2000 (Y2K) problem and to
standardize processes across their businesses.
