ARCHITEKTURE FOR A SME-READY ERP-SOLUTION BASED ON WEB-SERVICES AND PEER-TO-PEER-NETWORKS

Jorge Marx Gómez, Claus Rautenstrauch

Abstract

Although the requirements of small- to medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) for enterprise resource planning systems (ERP) are very similar to those of big corporations, there is still a lack of solutions for SMEs, because the roll-out as well as the maintenance is very expensive. It has become clear that EDP branch solutions, application service providing and stripped-down software versions do not offer satisfying solutions. For solving these problems, we propose an architecture for a distributed ERP-system based on web-services and peer-to-peer-network technology whose roll-out and maintenance is better affordable for SMEs than traditional systems.
