What is ERP? and Why?

ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning systems which is a generic name used for; “software  that is designed to support and automate the business processes” or “information systems those which aid in identifying and planning the enterprise wide resources needed to make, account for and deliver customer orders”) system penetration rate in Sri Lankan and Global businesses is very high and it is more than 70% at some conservative  estimates. Hence the majority of the businesses today operate using ERPs so the students  incapable of operating with such systems will find it tough to seamlessly integrate from  education programmes to employability
