Enterprise Information Systems and Advancing Business Solutions

Book Description

Global markets and competition have forced companies to operate in a physically distributed environment to take the advantage of benefits of strategic alliances between partnering firms. With global operations in place, there is a need for suitable Enterprise Information Systems (EIS) such as Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) and E-Commerce (EC) for the integration of extended enterprises along the supply chain with the objective of achieving flexibility and responsiveness.

Enterprise Information Systems and Advancing Business Solutions: Emerging Models is to provide comprehensive coverage and understanding of various enterprise information systems (EIS) such as enterprise resource planning (ERP) and electronic commerce (EC) and their implications on supply chain management and organizational competitiveness. Design, development, and implementation issues of EIS including ERP and EC will be discussed. These include organizational, people, and technological issues of EIS. This title will also expand the knowledge on ERP and EC and in turn help researchers and practitioners to develop suitable strategies, tactics, and operational policies for EIS and for improving communication in organizations.
