Abstract

The study is an attempt to propose the criteria for determining the appropriate connectivity of ERP systems. The result of this study provides a framework assisting ERP adopters in selecting integration approach which are appropriate to their needs. A survey was conducted to obtain information from ERP users to learn about their opinions on factors and criteria affecting connectivity of ERP systems. Findings from the study revealed that data oriented approach and application integration oriented approach are the most preferred integration methodologies. Opinions on criteria for evaluating ERP connectivity are nature of business process of organization, availability of technologies and service supports, nature of information system of organization, system flexibility, degree of integration, transaction volume, implementation cost, ease of maintenance, implementation time, security, and budget. Finally, the study proposes a framework to determine appropriate connectivity of ERP systems.
