By now you should have developed some understanding about
enterprise systems and their impact on the organization. Let’s write a Case
paper on the following topic.

When you’ve had a chance to review information from the
background readings and research other sources on your own, please prepare a 3-
to 5-page paper on the topic:

Do you agree that an Enterprise System is critical to business
success? Why or Why not?

You may like to approach the question by 1) discussing what an
enterprise system is, 2) how it has evolved from piecemeal applications to an
integrated system, 3) how it brings integration of business processes and 4)
how it helps to provide a tool for decision making for the management team.

It may be helpful to augment the above with a description of an
Enterprise System you are familiar with from your current job, past job, or
from personal experience such as a system used by a company or government
federal or local) agency you worked in.

These are merely suggestions so you may approach the question
and write a paper entirely differently.

Assignment Expectations

Your paper should be between three and five pages. Take a definite
stand on the issues, and develop your supporting argument carefully. Using
material from the background information and any other sources you can find to
support specific points in your argument is highly recommended; try to avoid
making assertions for which you can find no support other than your own
opinion.

You will be particularly assessed on:

·
Precision: Your draw on a range of sources, and to establish your
understanding of the historical context of the question. You carried out the
exercise as assigned, or carefully explained the limitations that might have
prevented your completing some parts (running out of time isn’t generally
considered an adequate limitation).

·
Support for assertions:You use examples, citations (especially to
the required readings), and elaboration to support assertions. You provide
evidence that you have read the required background materials.

·
Clarity: Your answers are clear and show your good understanding of the
topic. You see what the module is all about and to structure your paper
accordingly.

·
Breadth and Depth: The scope covered in your paper is directly related to the
questions of the assignment and the learning objectives of the module.

·
Critical thinking: The paper incorporates YOUR reactions, examples, and applications
of the material to business that illustrate your reflective judgment and good
understanding of the concepts. It is important to read the “required
readings” posted in the background material plus others you find relevant.
Your informed commentary and analysis is vital — simply repeating what your
sources say does not constitute an adequate paper.

·
Overall quality: Your paper is well written and the references, where needed,
are properly cited and listed (refer to the university guidelines
.trident.edu/wp-content/uploads/2015/06/Well-Written-Paper.pdf”>Student
Guide to Writing a High-Quality Academic Paper
) if you are uncertain
about formats or other issues.

2. ASSIGNMENT 2: SLP

(MUST BE ORIGINAL
WORK. NOT COPIED FROM SOMEONE ELSE)

Introduction to Enterprise Systems

This SLP will focus on Enterprise Systems that support a Finance
Department in an organization. All organizations have finance departments. If
you are in the military or other Government agency, the functions may be split.
Your local organization may deal with financing the organization with
everything except payroll. The payroll might be accomplished at a national
level. In a normal company, the Finance generally handles both organizational
and personnel costs.

Before reading about Financial Enterprise Systems, go to each of
these websites and look at the responsibilities (i.e. the business processes)
of a Financial Department.

·
.svtuition.org/2010/05/function-of-finance-department.html”>http://www.svtuition.org/2010/05/function-of-finance-department.html

Once you have an idea of what business processes finance
departments accomplish, take a look at Enterprise Solutions for finance
provided by one software company.

Go to : “Drive success across your lines of business” at SAP ERP
website
.sap.com/lines-of-business/index.epx”>http://www.sap.com/lines-of-business/index.epx. You will find a number
of videos and white papers.

For this SLP paper, select the Finance functional area from the
list above and review the site.

The direct link to the Financial Functional Area is:

·
.sap.com/solution/lob/finance.html”>http://go.sap.com/solution/lob/finance.html.sap.com/lob/financial-management.html”>

Read the Potential Benefits section (there are four potential
benefits) then go on to look at specific solutions to problems (there is a
button called EXPLORE SPECIFIC Solutions). Take a look at some of the
solutions.

Now that you have general ideas about what a finance department
does and what an Enterprise System that supports Finance can do, please discuss
the following questions specifically:

1.
What are the potential benefits of one or more of the solutions
identified by SAP? Specifically identify which solution or solutions you
selected.

2.
Do you agree with them? Discuss and analyze. Explain why you
agree or disagree. Try and explain the benefit that the SAP solutions you
selected bring to an organization.

3.
Using the knowledge you gained on Finance departments and
Enterprise Systems that support them, discuss how this enterprise module might
be useful to your organization? In discussing this state whether your
organization has or does not have, one or more Enterprise Systems for Finance
and whether the people that run them could use the tools you identified.

SLP Assignment Expectations

Your paper should be two to three pages in length, and reflect
your personal experiences with this issue.
The important part of all these project assignments is to
carefully assess your own experiences with the topic, and then reflect
critically on what you might have learned
about yourself and
about situations through this assessment process.

The more that you can use the exercise to develop personal
implications for your growth as a potential business person as well as a
knowledge user, the more value you’ll get out of the exercise.

If there are reasons why the entire exercise is impractical for
you to undertake at all, please explain them to your instructor as early in the
Module as possible, so that an alternative assignment can be arranged.
