ERPThe 1990’s was an explosive time for the internet but especially for the ERP software systems that were meant to integrate business processes throughout every functional area. In the early days of commercial computing applications didn’t talk much to each other. As they grew more sophisticated they started to interact, with data from
purchasing feeding straight into the manufacturing system, and sales information flowing directly to the general ledger. Back in the 1980’s it was still common for large organisations to write their own applications
software, hence the CASE boom. The rise of packaged ERP solutions put an end to all that, and today just about every large organisation uses an off-the-shelf ERP system of one kind or another. The growth of ERP vendors in the 1990’s increased significantly, major players were, Oracle, peoplesoft and Baan. The biggest of them all was German company Sap.
