An Empirical Analysis on Success and Failure of Various Technology Transfer For Effective Implementation of Erp |

Vivek Kumar, in International Journal of Information Technology and Management | IT & Management


This study plans torecognize Critical Success Factors (Csfs) in implementation of EnterpriseResource Planning (ERP) frameworks that are viable on organization success.While researchers have attempted to apply ideas for example, Change Management(CM), Knowledge Management (KM) and Innovation Management (IM) to offer answersfor overcome challenges in actualizing ERP frameworks, the Transfer part of ERPimplementation has been less developed; transfer from a designer organization(seller) to a collector organization. Henceforth, we have compressed ourdistinguished adequate measures in ERP implementation and Technology Transfer(TT) into a poll that was disseminated around supervisors and specialists offour Iranian huge organizations and their ERP merchants. Results fromExploratory Factor Analysis (EFA) demonstrates that accompanying five principlefactors are adequate on ERP implementation success: Culture, OrganizationalStructure, Project Management, Support Activities furthermore Training Issuesand the Interaction between Transferor and Transferee. Besides, impact of everyprimary factor on organization success has been ascertained by Pearsontechnique. Enterprise resourceplanning (ERP) provisions are spreading worldwide, incorporating into improvingcountries. Issues identified with social jumbles are one of the tests thatinfluence this worldwide dispersion. Two primary sets of culture could bedistinguished in any ERP circumstance of improvement, implementation andutilization. From one perspective, there is a culture embedded in the ERPsoftware reflecting the perspectives of the ERP engineers, sellers andadvisors. Then again, there is a culture reflecting the perspectives of theactualizing organisation's task group, directors and clients. We allude to thefirst as the ERP framework culture and to the second as the ERP host culture.This paper exhibits a system that permits analysis of these two cultures andtheir effect on ERP success and failure. The paper exhibits the utility of thissystem by applying it to a careful investigation. In general, we contend thatgreat compatibility between ERP framework and host cultures can help ERPsuccess both in process and conclusion terms. Nonetheless, absence ofcoinciding can help ERP process and conclusion failure. This study firstly looksat the present literary works concerning ERP implementation issues throughoutimplementation stages and reason for ERP implementation failure. A numerouscase study research strategy was received to comprehend "why" and"how" these ERP frameworks couldn't be executed successfully.Distinctive stakeholders (counting top management, venture chief, undertakingallies and ERP advisors) from these case studies were talked with, and ERPimplementation records were surveyed for triangulation. An ERP life cycleschema was connected to study the ERP implementation process and the associated  issues in each one stage of ERPimplementation. Fourteen critical failure factors were distinguished and brokedown, and three regular critical failure factors (poor expert adequacy, venturemanagement viability and poo555îr nature of business process re-building) wereinspected and examined. Future research on ERP implementation and criticalfailure factors is talked about. It is trusted that this examination willassistance to extension the present literary works hole and furnish viablecounsel for both scholastics and specialists.
