Abstract

The cost effectiveness, ease of learning, connectedness and in-depth analytical capabilities provided through cloud computing technologies, have provided small firms the opportunity to implement enterprise systems (ES), which was reserved only for the much resourceful firms. However, it is evident that small firms are still struggling to attain purported benefits of ES and still find it difficult to manage complexities of ES implementations. Further, limited research has been conducted that discusses ES implementation in small firms. This research is an attempt to further the understanding of ES-implementation of small firms and re-evaluate the applicability of fundamental critical success factors to small firms.
