IMPORTANT FACTORS IN ERP SYSTEMS IMPLEMENTATIONS - Result of the research in Polish enterprises

Piotr Soja

Abstract

In the article the problem of success factors in ERP systems implementations has been discussed. The review of the literature concerning success factors has been discussed and the collection of potential ERP implementation success factors was identified. Next, the result of research has been presented, where respondents have been asked about their opinion about the importance of subsequent factors for the implementation success. There were two groups of respondents: the first consisted of people from Polish enterprises implementing ERP systems and the second comprised experts working in ERP systems suppliers. On the basis of the research, the most important and necessary factors in the respondents’ opinions have been identified, as well as the least important ones.
