Abstract

The development of global information systems infrastructure of enterprises offers many challenges, like the need to balance local and global systems requirements. The use of ERP systems (Enterprise Resource Planning) arises as a possible alternative for this development. This paper aims to identify aspects involved in the use of ERP systems as transnational information systems, through the analysis of three implementation cases of ERP systems at Brazilian subsidiaries of multinational enterprises.
