Abstract

In the 1990s there was considerable growth in implementations of enterprise resource planning (ERP) systems. Companies expected these systems to support many of the day-to-day business transactions. The growth in ERP implementations had a resultant impact on the demand for ERP skills. Many universities recognised this demand and the potential of using ERP systems software as a teaching tool and endeavoured to incorporate ERP systems into their curriculum. ERP systems have now evolved to incorporate more strategic components such as business intelligence (BI) solutions. Universities and ERP vendors are investigating ways in which curriculum can be developed to support these new solutions. This chapter discusses a blended approach adopted by a university in the development and implementation of BI curriculum.
