ON ENTERPRISE INFORMATION SYSTEMS ADDRESSING THE DEMOGRAPHIC CHANGE

Silvia Schacht, Alexander Mädche

Abstract

The demographic change influences almost all area of life such as health care, education, social systems and productivity of companies. Therefore, appropriate adjustments to an aging society are necessary. To date, many studies have been carried out weighting the advantages and disadvantages of the various alternatives. The impact of an older workforce on productivity when using enterprise information systems was considered only sparsely. The following paper presents our research intention to design and develop EIS referring to the demographic change.
