The ‘successful’ organization of the future is going to depend upon virtual organizations quickly providing quality customer driven products and services. At the heart and centre of these, will be strategic information systems such as the enterprise resource planning system (ERP), this system when used across the supply chain, its referred to as the Extended Enterprise Resource Planning System (eERP). This strategic system will enable multiple organizations to effectively coordinate their operations in an effort to manage a supply chain by supporting supplier and customer linkages and providing required information across the supply chain quickly for improved performance of all organizations in this agile supply chain. The question here is whether the eERP narrows the integration gap between organizations.
