What is an ERP System?

ERP stands for Enterprise Resource Planning. This refers to a comprehensive business software, with which all central business processes can be controlled uniformly. An ERP system typically supports materials management, production, sales, research and development, finance and accounting, human resources, and more. A common database for all departments ensures that all data is automatically consolidated. This makes effective controlling possible across all company levels. NTT DATA Business Solutions’ industry solutions are ERP systems that have been specifically tailored to the needs of a particular industry and thus extend the standard functionality.
