  8. Executive Level The president, CEO, vice presidents, board of directors Decisions Long-term strategic issues Complex and nonroutine problems Unstructured decisions Long-term ramifications

  9. Functional Area Information Systems Cross-organizational-level IS Support specific functional area Focus on specific set of activities

  10. Information Systems Supporting the Functional Areas

  11. Enterprise Systems • Information Technology supporting business activities at enterprise level • Enterprise applications with internal and external focuses • Implementation of enterprise systems: ERP, CRM and SCM

  12. Legacy System

  29. Building a Connected Corporation through Integrations A Central Information Repository Example

  30. Building A Connected Corporation Through Integrations An Integration Example

  31. Integration Tools • Enterprise system – Provide enterprise-wide support and data access for a firm’s operations and business processes • Enterprise application integration (EAI) – Connects the plans, methods, and tools aimed at integrating separate enterprise systems

  32. Enterprise Resource Planning

  33. Integration Tools • Middleware – Several different types of software that sit between and provide connectivity for two or more software applications • Enterprise application integration middleware – Takes a new approach to middleware by packaging commonly used applications together, reducing the time needed to integrate applications from multiple vendors

  34. Enterprise Application Integration

  35. Core ERP Modules Manufacturing & Production Module Customer Relationship Management Module Human Resources Module Accounting and Financial Module Supply Chain Management Module E-Business Module Suppliers Customers ERPPlatform & Database Business Intelligence Module Extended ERP Modules

  36.
