erp future Directions

To solve the problems of “information-glut” arising from the evermore affordable z l
information and communication technologies that provide for evermore high-capacity,
fast, long-distance transmission, organizations would need to introduce methods for
“selective dispersion of information” to their various parts.
Work tasks would be grouped in organizational units created around a common program z l
for information processing.
Improvements in telecommunications will make it easier to control (which will be primarily z l
a matter of information exchange) organizational units dispersed over different parts of the
Advances in telecommunications (such as videophone), coupled with diminishing costs, z l
would result in increased distance-communication.
Indirect communication would be preferred for well-structured information for routinized, z l
“preprogrammed” decision processes.
Transaction processing systems are responsible for capturing, storing, and providing access z l
to the basic data of the organisation.
The goal is to capture the transaction data as soon as possible. z l
Common collection methods include point-of sale services, process control, electronic data z l
interchange, and electronic commerce websites.
Because data is the foundation for all other decisions, TPS must maintain data integrity and z l
minimize the threats to the data.

Enterprise Network: A network that connects multiple subnetworks across an entire firm.
Often, the networks use different protocols and different computer types, which complicates
transmitting messages.
Online Analytical Processing (OLAP): A computer system designed to help managers retrieve
and analyze data. The systems are optimized to rapidly integrate and retrieve data. The
storage system is generally incompatible with transaction processing, so it is stored in a data
UNIX: A popular operating system created by Bell Labs. It is designed to operate the same on
hardware from several different vendors. Unfortunately, there are several varieties of UNIX, and
software that operates on one version often must be modified to function on other machines.
