ERP systems to process transactions and provide information

Please read the following discussion topic below and instructions followed. Please write the discussion with APA formatting and provide references and citations.


To understand the role IS(Information Systems) plays in business transformation, one must take a business process, rather than a functional, perspective. A business process is a well-defined, sequential set of tasks that has a beginning and an end, a set of associated metrics, and cross-functional boundaries. Most businesses operate according to business processes, even if their organization charts are structured by functions rather than by processes. The text compares functional (or silo) perspective with the process perspective.

Discuss how organizations use enterprise resource planning (ERP) systems to process transactions and provide information. Provide References. Discuss examples


To complete this assignment, you must do the following:

A) Create a new thread. As indicated above, discuss how you would combine the two concepts to create visualizations for an ABM-Based Gaming simulation for policy making. First, describe what specific policy you’re trying to create. Let’s stick with the SmartCity scenario. Describe a specific policy (that you haven’t used before), and how you plan to use ABM-Based Gaming to build a model for simulate the effects of the policy. Then, describe what type of visualization technique you’ll use to make the model more accessible. Use figure 15.9 and describe what data a new column for your policy would contain.

B) Select AT LEAST 3 other students’ threads and post substantive comments on those threads, evaluating the pros and cons of that student’s recommendations. Your comments should extend the conversation started with the thread.

ALL original posts and comments must be substantive. (I’m looking for about a paragraph – not just “I agree.”)

NOTE: These discussions should be informal discussions, NOT research papers. If you MUST directly quote a resource, then cite it properly. However, I would much rather simply read your words.
