The Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) is an integrated solution that have been revolutionizing the business processes in collaborative and distributed way. It considered as the backbone of the management systems due to the unlimited benefits it promises. However, many developing countries are not conscious of this impressive system. Therefore, this research paper explores and analyzes the ERP system architecture, implementation and, major effects when applying it into different areas, for enhancing replacing the traditional management systems with ERP systems in the developing countries.
