In spite of a wealth of studies on ERP adoption in recent years, prior studies have presumed ERP adoption as an immediate action rather than as a process. The authors also argue that cross-sectional research design does not adequately represent the complexity and the highly volatile nature of the process of ERP adoption. Based on a content analysis of one hundred studies on academic and vendor successes, they have identified 27 transition factors contributing to the adoption of cloud ERP. Building on two process research studies, this paper attempts to explore which transition factors are relevant to the distinct phases of cloud ERP adoption.
