Enterprise information systems (EIS) reflect the expansion of enterprise resource planning to include supply chain management and customer relationship management functionality. The evolution of EIS development is reviewed. The general state of EIS research is considered. The features expected of the next generation of EIS software are forecast. Emerging issues of EIS risk management and open source opportunities are discussed. Conclusions discuss inferences the authors make concerning the development and expansion of these important systems to better support organizations of all types.
