  • Research question

  • Conceptual framework

  • Hypotheses

  • Methodology

  • Results

  • Conclusion


T his paper has two aims
This paper has two aims

  • Examine if the implementation (organizational vision, functional coverage, process reengineering, implementation strategy, DBs heterogeneous, application, and specific development) of ERP systems explains the emergence of several IT architectures

  • Evaluate the impact of such implementation concerning (1) applications integration and (2) applications federation


R esearch question
Research question

Does ERP Implementation offer a more integrated/federated IS architecture ?

What about hybrids forms ?


Conceptual framework
Conceptual framework

  • Markus theory (2000 and 2001)

  • Alsène theory (1997)

  • Menadier theory (2002)


Methodology
Methodology

  • Quantitative aspects of the research data

    • Tested Population : 143 French SMEs companies

    • Minimum of 2 ERP modules,

    • Single editor,

    • Minimum of 6 months live implementation,

    • Respondents areERP project managers and functional managers


Results
Results

Three categories of IT architecture underlining IS “urbanisation” choices in SMEs :

  • federated IT architecture

  • partial integrated IT architecture

  • hybrid integrated IT architecture


Result 1 federated it architecture
Result 1:Federated IT architecture


Result 2 partial integrated it architecture
Result 2:Partial Integrated IT architecture


Result 3 hybrid integrated it architecture
Result 3:Hybrid Integrated IT architecture



Future research
Future research

  • Results require greater explanation in a number of respects:

    • Cross-functionality and interoperability of applications merits beingexamined in greater detail from the user viewpoint

    • The purpose of specific developments should be underlined and investigated

    • The life cycle approach taken here is restricted purely to the overall description of ERP issue and should be developed and carried forward as a basis for future research
