Companies constantly adapt to new business environments in order to be successful and stay relevant. Innovation is a vital source for a company to be competitive in the business environment. Innovations enable companies to develop and utilize new strategies, tools, and tactics as well as new products and services. Enterprise resource planning (ERP) systems are comprehensive software packages that aim to integrate business processes and functions. The purpose of this study is to investigate the impact of ERP systems on the innovative capabilities of the organization, using quantitative research methods with an exploratory research design. The design of the study involved determining the influential factors to innovation in terms of ERP systems and analyzing the secondary data of two surveys on innovation and information technologies relationship. The data were collected as a part of a longitudinal, multinational research effort in manufacturing and retail, transportation, and logistics sectors. The research suggests a theoretical framework on ERP innovation relationship and presents empirical findings.
