Paper 1 by steven ERP is short for enterprise resource planning which is designed to improve both external customer relationship s and internal collaborations by automating tasks and activities that streamline work process, shorten business process cycles, and increase user productivity. ERP software integrated all facets of an operation, including product planning, development, manufacturing processes, sales and marketing. In this short essay, three ERP application softwares from Oracle, Epicor and Netsuite were compared separately in the form of diagram:Product name Oracle ERP(E-business suite) IntroductionOracle ERP is the core software of Oracle E-Business Suite and Oracle EBS is a set of total solution that is based on ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning), with the system extended to the customer end, supply chain end and high-level decision support system, which can be called ERP II. Besides including the traditional ERP, which is at the core of the enterprise, Oracle ERP integrates CRM (Customer Relationship Management), SCM (Supply Chain Management and BI (Business Intelligence). During the ERP project implementation process, the enterprise can best re-engineer itself. With the introduction of the ERP project, the enterprise can inspect various process flows yet again, adjust them to fit in the requirement of future operations and realize those in the system. With the non-stop evolution of the enterprise, the ERP system will have to stay tuned to offer the necessary enterprise operation competitiveness.
