One of the most influential IT developments in the past fifty years has been Enterprise Resource Planning, better known as ERP. This Guide to ERP is a book series aimed at managers and project leaders who work with ERP. The book series contains three parts. This first part is a general introduction. An overview is presented regarding the reasons why organisations apply ERP, and what they expect from their ERP systems. The extent to which these expectations are met is also discussed. The most important ERP suppliers are listed, and the technical foundation of ERP systems is explained for a non-technical audience.
