Free registration required

Executive Summary

A majority of manufacturers make use of some form of Enterprise Systems (ES), yet on average, the financial impact of ES adoption is essentially neutral. The authors propose that in an ES environment of easy information access, competitive success depends, in part, on the policies regulating enterprise information use. To explore this proposition, they examine the efficient use of different types of enterprise information in the realization of strategic performance. Efficient firms will devote fewer resources to information use to achieve the same strategic performance as less efficient firms.
