Abstract: The growth of global enterprises and the expansion of technical and managerial knowledge are hallmarks of the twentyfirst century organization. A wave of interest in improving the integration of information or data across the functional areas of a business has surfaced during the past few years. More specifically, business transactions that occur in one functional area would, indeed, affect transaction in other functional areas. Not surprisingly, the most effective managerial decisions can be made when information and data from all areas of business are available in real time, and that all parties having access to the information are participants in the decision made. A Software which enables this integration of information is the Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) software system. The core issues and concepts underlying idea behind Enterprise Resource Planning is its ability to bind the entire enterprise in a tight web of information system. This software application leaves no function of an organization untouched. The thrust of this paper is to provide information about the ABC’s of ERP, ERP implementation life cycle, the seven mantra’s for ERP implementation, and the rebirth of ERP extending its footprints to Supply Chain Management (SCM), Customer Relationship Management (CRM) and Collaborative Management.
