Using ERP System in Higher Education A Case of a HEI in the UAE Maitha Alshaer College of Technological Innovation Zayed University Dubai, UAE Faculty Advisors: Dr. Munir Majdalawieh and Dr. Michelle Antero Abstract In the field of data innovation, an Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) is most basically characterized as the framework that coordinates utilitarian and cross-practical business procedure of an association. The potential selection of ERP is expanding quickly in various areas; it has developed in monetary parts and also in advanced education establishments (HEIs), however few examinations about ERP were directed in the United Arab Emirates’ (UAE) colleges. This contextual analysis concentrates on one college in UAE. The information is gathered from interviews with executives and senior administrators. The information gathered is utilized to 1) give gauge information on the utilization of ERP framework for instructive associations; and 2) feature heads’ impression of the preferences and difficulties an ERP framework may introduce. The examination of the experimental information enabled the analyst to explore the accompanying exploration questions: 1) How do heads at the case organization portray their impression of the potential restrictions and qualities of ERP use? 2) Do these discernments line up with the operational favorable circumstances and troubles that an ERP may present to colleges? The investigation features the functionalities and utilization of ERP framework in colleges. Discoveries recommend that members have an unmistakable comprehension of ERP framework. In any case, the larger part of them don’t propose actualizing an ERP framework in the college because of a few reasons. Experiences picked up from this examination may profit different colleges when choosing whether to actualize ERP framework or not. Future research ought to investigate the contrasts amongst legislative and private colleges’ use of ERP frameworks. Undertaking frameworks are considered as a standout amongst the most confused and effective data frameworks being used today (Magal and Word, 2012), and one of the biggest and complex endeavor frameworks is Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP). ERP is the expansive arrangement of exercises that a director does to run imperative parts of an association. This definition changed by time to be the “framework that incorporates practical and cross-useful business forms” (Magal and Word, 2012, p.25). Additionally, it is an incorporated suite of data innovation applications that help the operations of a venture from a procedure point of view. The centers of ERP frameworks are operations, HR, deals and promoting, fund and bookkeeping, and these capacities are upheld by a standard ERP framework. Most imperative favorable position of ERP is the consistent joining that consequently brings various points of interest, for example, time lessening in performing assignments. Then again, ERP requires concentrated assets and time to be actualized. In spite of the fact that the utilization of ERP frameworks is noteworthy regarding benefits, advanced education establishments don’t understand it (Abugabah, and Sanzogni, 2010). 1334 This paper is a preparatory examination of ERP framework at the chose college. This preparatory investigation takes a gander at reasons why the considered college does not use an ERP framework and the likelihood of ERP use in future motivation. The paper is organized as takes after, initial a writing audit; a review of ERP advantages and difficulties in both corporate and advanced education divisions. Second the strategy that incorporates setting of the contextual investigation, information gathering, test choice and consideration components, and information examination as subheadings. Third is the discoveries segment that incorporates contentions against and for utilizing an ERP framework at the example college. Next is a dialog of discoveries with scientist’s perspective. Also, the last segment of the paper is the restriction of the examination and the conclusion.
