Abstract

Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) systems play an important role in integrating information and processes across departmental boundaries (Reimers, 2003; Klaus et al., 2000; Sankar et al., 2005). Organisations, especially in developing countries, have adopted these information systems extensively to overcome the limitations of fragmented and incompatible stand-alone and legacy systems (Huang and Palvia, 2001; Sharma et al., 2002; Robey et al., 2002). Even though the inherent appeal of ERP systems has not gone unnoticed in developing countries (Xue et al., 2005), ERP is still in its early stages in countries in Asia/Pacific, Latin America and Eastern Europe (Huang and Palvia, 2001; Rajapakse and Seddon, 2005).
