The implementation of Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) system within companies is increasingly current. Despite the potential benefits that ERP systems provide, these projects are risky. In fact, many ERP integration projects fail because the system is not aligned to adopting organization's requirements. This paper proposes criteria and metrics that allow measuring alignment between enterprise requirements and ERP functionalities in order to quantify the extent of the fit between the business and the ERP system. The authors used SOA (Service Oriented Architecture) formalism to model both the ERP system and the enterprise requirements.
