Abstract

This paper sets out to assess the feasibility of implementation strategies in Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) systems. As highlighted by the literature, several cases of failure have emerged all over the world amongst companies implementing ERP systems. In this respect, the main problems concern the organizational implementation, companies tend to underestimate the difficulties related to it and focus instead on problems concerning technical implementation. The methodological approach presented in the paper takes into consideration both technical and organizational aspects involved in the ERP implementation. The methodology aims at supporting Information Systems management to reduce risks and handle the implementation process in a holistic and integrated way, highlighting the critical interaction between aspects concerning technical and organizational issues. The methodology defined in this study provides useful information for the companies, and can be considered as an assessment instrument capable to predict and manage the risk in implementing ERP systems in firms all over the world.
