Although AI (Artificial Intelligence) is still in its early stages for ERP software, the demand for the technology is rising each day. During the 1990s, ERP was the emerging trend and companies were looking to utilize the new functionality and opportunities this trend brought. Many customers moved from manual systems and spreadsheets to ERP software with the main aim of improving efficiency. Today, ERP is a very common term within the industry and most companies who have adopted ERP software in their organizations are asking the question'what is next?' AI is an emerging trend but understanding terms like Big Data and the Internet of Things (IoT) which are causing digital disruption can create a misperception in the market. Today, more than before, companies need to understand how AI fits into ERP software as well as the benefits it can provide.
