Course content

The aim of the course is to provide an understanding of and methods for enterprise systems selection, implementation and use. The main vantage point is that of the purchasing and utilising organisation, rather than the provider side.

Enterprise systems are integrated information systems packages, intended to cover all the administrative and managerial information needs in an organisation. The course Enterprise systems takes its starting point in use and benefits of enterprise systems from the perspectives of different functions, such as sales, marketing, production, accounting and top management. Both operative (transactional) and directive use (management) are treated.

Enterprise systems projects are large undertakings. Therefore, the enterprise systems life cycle is also treated, from evaluation and selection, modification and implementation, via use and improvement, to phase-out. Additionally, an overview of actors and business models on the enterprise systems market is included. 

The course consists of lectures, literature study, group work, labs and seminars.

The main content of the course is:

  • Use and usefulness of enterprise systems from the perspectives of different functions, such as sales, marketing, production, accounting, and top management. 
  • Operative (transaction perspective) and management use (directive perspective)
  • Enterprise systems projects: selection and acquisition, implementation, and further adjustment for improved use
  • Enterprise systems from organisational and systems perspectives 
  • The enterprise systems market – actors and business models.

Teaching and working methods
