Abstract

Though the application of SAP R/3 as an enterprise-wide information system (EWIS) platform has become widespread, many organisational experiences have shown that resulting outcomes fall short of expectations. Best-practice experiences, however, have proven that effective application is centred on an integrative approach which seeks to achieve a balance between organisational change key areas like strategy, business processes, structure, culture, IT and managerial systems. This paper draws on these practices and discusses a proposed conceptual framework for effective SAP R/3 application.
