ERP implementation is an important process that signifies a step forward for the company. There is no way to create a perfect project every time, but by being aware of some common mistakes, you can work towards eliminating them and reduce frustration by consistently churning out successful tasks. There is a lot of mistakes that people make when trying to implement ERP software into their system, and these lead to problems down the road.

“Enterprise resource planning systems or enterprise systems are software systems for business management, encompassing modules supporting functional areas such as planning, manufacturing, sales, marketing, distribution, accounting, financial, human resource management, project management, inventory management, service and maintenance, transportation and e-business.” (Hossain, Patrick, & Rashid, 2002, p. 16) By adopting ERP system, all legacy software can be replaced with software that includes multiple modules linked together on single database and get rid of all previous problems such as lack of integration, complexity, duplication and compatibility problems. Because this software is from one company that facilitates things like license, upgrading, technical support and training ERP is very costly software needs plenty of resources and time that is why in the beginning only big companies used ERP, later ERP start to be used in medium and small companies. In Spite of the benefits of ERP in improving business process and financial performance, but also the risks associated with the implementation is very high so the failure rate is also high. 1.2.

In this report, I will discuss the various aspects of an ERP system and how my choosen organisation, Talking Rain had gained competitive advantages via the ERP system. Without ERP, organizations will be running on many different kinds of software and this affects the function of their business activities negatively which causes them to face many hardship in many areas while functioning. With ERP, it allows information to be in a single database which enables the interaction of marketing, sales, quality control, process of products, supply and other. Information will be registered in the database which can flow constantly in the organization which allows anyone to process processes at any time.

Abstract—ERP systems are the largest software applications adopted by universities, along with quite significant investments in their implementation, but as per previous literatures it find that the success rate of such system is low, may be lack of consideration of user role in acceptance of such ICT applications in the education industry. The objective of this study is to test the traditional technology acceptance model (TAM) a framework use to study the various aspects of acceptance of application of ICT, addition to this we used the TAM 2 (Extended Technology Acceptance Model) which can helpful for designing the research framework for Educational ERP System. this will also provide a an analysis of which factors influence the acceptance
Undoubtedly, the increasing possibilities of Information and communication technologies have improved and enhanced the focus of the companies. Especially the utilization of ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning) software which have been the powerful force behind the strong emphasis of manufacturing companies to handle and control the flow of goods in an integrated manner.

I also learn a lot from other people asking interesting question. For example, how the oracle get real time currency rate when company perform transaction with other company in different country. There is also a structured way for any company who have an existing erp system (SAP) to migrate into oracle so as to assure client that such a way does not involve high risk. One thing that is undeniable is of how an ERP system can help the business in many ways such as reducing redundant job, save time, save paper and improve their business processes. If one inspired to be an erp consultant, they need to have a deep knowledge of the business processes and must be very familiar with it.
All companies must adapt their processes to ERP blueprint, as systems are not able to work properly without the correct processes. However, if a company does want to adapt ERP software different from the specific blueprint, it is possible, but very costly and causes many problems. Also, an ERP makes organizations keep data in a centralized database. This simplifies tasks of obtaining information from a single source. ERP can bring many benefits towards a company, however it can be very slow to implement, as well as being very costly.
6.0 CONCLUSION Enterprise risk management is an on-going process that is applied in setting strategy across the enterprise. It is designed to identify potential events that, if they occur, will affect the entity and to manage risks within its risk appetite. ERM is not a question of whether or not it is compulsory for firms/ organisations. It is a matter of necessity as all firms/organisations are exposed to one risk or the other in the course of operations. Most firms/organisations start up with the Business continuity in mind.
