ERP; An industry term that refers to enterprise resource management planning, supported by multi-module application software that helps a business manage all its divisions and activities.

ERP systems aim to manage all activities in the business in integration with each other. ERP; It is a centralized management system and control tool.

In recent years, the development of internet technologies and the creation of remote access and communication opportunities have led the software industry to analyze the issues in more detail and content. If we take the Banking Sector as an example and look at the banking transactions in the 1980s, we see that branch operations are carried out by hand processing customer cards, which are generally classified in index boxes. Later, we see that in-branch network systems are established, then all branches are connected to each other via special lines, and then all customer computers are included in the banking system with internet banking.


In this period, ERP solutions began to emerge for Institutions as well, and comprehensive CORPORATE ERP systems that prioritize stock, accounting and financial data management of corporate companies, especially in holding structures, began to take place in world markets. 


Comprehensive CORPORATE ERP systems such as SAP, ORACLE, BAAN, AXAPTA and dozens of similar programs, as well as proven Accounting programs, have taken their place in the market by saying that they are an ERP solution. 


Users are confused between these multiple ERP solutions. They hardly realize that the ERP they need should be a SECTORAL ERP solution that can control the data in sector-specific units, which is a requirement of the operation in their sector.

And most of the time, they do not perceive the difference between "Business Process Management", "Content Management", "Document Management" solutions (Lotus Notes and similar Document Management systems) and ERP and they set out with wrong choices.


They do not realize that the CORPORATE ERP, which can be a solution within the Holding, does not have sufficient features for the Construction Company operating within that holding. 


What I want to express here is not to be against CORPORATE ERP solutions, but to ensure that the ERP solution, which should be used in a company that does business with a special quality, has SECTORAL content and can be integrated with the CORPORATE ERP solution used as a central solution.
