Integrating SAP to Information Systems Curriculum: Design and Delivery
Information Systems (IS) education is being transformed from the segmented applications toward the integrated enterprise-wide system software Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP). ERP is a platform that integrates all business functions with its centralized data repository shared by all the business operations in the enterprise. This tremendous change has led to teaching ERP applications becoming an important issue in information systems education. This paper presents a comprehensive approach to teaching SAP which includes the course design, course delivery and learning outcomes. SAP is utilized as an ERP software tool in the course. The course emphasizes on teaching SAP implementation as a whole process of transforming business procedures to organization wide requirements. The paper concludes with suggestions to those who seek to use SAP as a tool to teach ERP in the area of enterprise system integration.
