"Many organizations that implemented ERP systems have reported not satisfied impacts from these huge investments. According to extensive academic debates, the reasons of ERP systems implementation failures are the disconnection between them and organizational performance.
The ERP selection process is an important step in the future financial and operational success of any manufacturing or distribution organization, empirical research has shown that selecting an inappropriate system is a major reason for ERP implementation failures, in Egypt the success rate of implementing ERP systems is extremely lower than that in western companies.
