Abstract

This study aims to investigate whether data infrastructure and resource support affect the integration of business intelligence (BI) into enterprise resource planning (ERP) systems. A Bayesian network model includes the variables of data warehouse, OLAP, data mining, ERP vendor, online period of ERP, return on assets, return on sales, return on investment, sales over employees and BI implementation was developed to investigate the issues of this research. Empirical findings from ERP-implemented manufacturers suggest that BI implementation may not have positive impacts on financial performances. In contrast, BI-implemented companies generally have more complicated data infrastructure than the companies without BI systems. In addition, results of Bayesian inferences suggest that ERP vendor, data warehouse, OLAP and data mining may have significant impacts on the implementation of BI systems. Hence, companies should choose their ERP solutions carefully or start planning their data infrastructure if they expect to adopt BI solutions in the future.
