Enterprise Resource Planning
Enterprise resource planning means storing, using and utilizing the information gathered in the business. It is the administrative side of business activities, processing the information flows from concrete activities.
Traditional ERPs are often more data entry systems than real data management systems. A lot of information is being inputed, but in practice it cannot be utilized for business planning and forecasting. The past activities are unfortunately often in the scope and to make matters worse, the view is often blinded: one knows the unit is making a profit, but the system cannot detail which part is profitable and which is badly losing out, as the deviations and reasons cannot be found.
