This paper attempts to highlightthose specific issues where a different approach needs to be adopted. Paretoanalysis has been applied to identify the issues for Indian SMEs and Largescale enterprises as available from the published literature. Also by doingcomparative analysis between the identified issues for Indian large enterprisesand SMEs four issues are proved to be crucial for SMEs in India but not forlarge enterprises such as proper system implementation strategy, clearlydefined scope of implementation procedure, proper project planning and minimalcustomization of the system selected for implementation, because of somelimitations faced by the Indian SMEs compared to large enterprises.
