Enterprise Resource Planning Systems (ERP) provide comprehensive business functionality in an integrated fashion using a state-of-the-art IT infrastructure. Never before have businesses had the opportunity to integrate their applications, standardize their systems, and provide a process-centered perspective to their business. Over the past few years, some of the companies that develop and market ERP solutions have provided a special arrangement that encourages Universities to incorporate ERP concepts and technologies into the education process. In this presentation, the authors intend to share their experiences as members of the SAP University Alliance program. As members of this alliance, the authors have hands-on experience working in the SAP R/3 environment and exposing students to valuable business and business systems concepts.
