The term 'enterprise systems' encompasses all kinds of business information systems. Enterprise systems allow enterprises to save, structure, process and evaluate their data and thereby gain advantages in competition. Companies invest extensive amounts of money aiming for more efficient planning strategies or shorter responding times to customer requirements. The importance of enterprise systems grows steadily and there is an increasing demand for research and the development of new applications.
