Enterprise Resource Planning

What is Enterprise Resource Planning?

ERP stands for Enterprise Resource Planning. It is a type of business management software that allows organizations to integrate and automate various business processes, such as inventory and order management, accounting, human resources, customer relationship management, and other core business functions.

ERP systems are designed to streamline workflows, enhance collaboration, and provide real-time visibility into key business metrics. By consolidating data and automating processes, ERP systems can help organizations improve their efficiency, reduce costs, and make more informed decisions.

Some popular ERP software vendors include SAP, Oracle, Microsoft, and IFS, among others.

Types of ERP ​

After implementing an ERP solution, it’s common to shift focus towards add-ons, improvements, or even migrations to the chosen solution. However, selecting the right ERP provider in today’s ever-changing technical landscape can be challenging. It’s important to understand the different types of ERP solutions available, each tailored to meet the specific needs of businesses based on their nature, size, and organizational requirements.

On-premises ERP

This is a traditional ERP solution that is installed and managed locally on the servers of an organization. It provides complete control over the system and can be customized to the specific needs of the organization.

Cloud-based ERP

Cloud-based ERP solutions are hosted on the servers of the ERP vendor and are accessible via the internet. They are generally easier to implement and scale than on-premises ERP systems, and usually offer lower initial costs.

Hybrid ERP

This is a combination of on-premises and cloud-based ERP solutions. Companies may choose to manage their core business processes locally while running less critical processes via the cloud.

Industry-specific ERP

These are ERP systems designed for specific industries, such as manufacturing, retail, or healthcare. They are usually pre-configured with specific features and workflows that are specific to the industry.

Open source ERP

Open source ERP solutions are ERP systems whose source code is freely available and can be customized and adapted to the needs of an organization. This can offer lower costs and greater flexibility, but generally requires more technical expertise.
