Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) is a term coined in the early 1990s. It began as a group of applications or software focused on combining multiple systems into one integrated system where data could be shared across the enterprise, reducing redundant data entry and processes. Its origin was in manufacturing and production planning, which began as Material Resource Planning (MRP) systems and later encompassed financial, human resources, and reporting systems. In the mid 1990s, we saw ERP solutions expanded to include ordering systems, financial and accounting systems, asset management, human resource management systems, and customer relationship management.
