Scientific Annals of the Alexandru Ioan Cuza University of Iasi : Economic Sciences Series , 2007,
Abstract: Small and Medium-Size Enterprises represent the spinal cord of most European Union countries’ economies. In Romania, the SME ”Cinderella” has been increasingly attracting the attention of SMEs specialists and agencies because, after Romania has joined the EU, this sector needs consolidation so as to add value to the national economy. The new information technologies can function as drivers to increase SMEs’ efficiency and productivity in the current global economy. The grand players in the IT industry have been increasingly considered SMEs. “Heavy” names such as IBM, Oracle, Compaq or Microsoft are developing SMEs projects, both for equipment (servers, flexible technological architectures), and for integrated solutions (ERP, CRM, BI, SCM), solutions which were initially targeting large businesses only. Small Business is already becoming an important segment that the whole IT industry is targeting. Romanian SMEs must consider this trend and be prepared for the “technological fashion”. The heavy survival test cannot be passed without this support.

Exploring Risk Factors in ERP Maintenance Projects
Cristina López, Jose L. Salmeron
Scientific Journal of Riga Technical University. Computer Sciences , 2011, DOI: 10.2478/v10143-011-0007-4
Abstract: In recent decades, companies across the world have implemented Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) systems. The proper ERPs implementation has been a much explored issue. In contrast, ERP systems maintenance has been treated with less depth. ERP maintenance is necessary to achieve the system's maximum performance. Nevertheless, these projects are often managed intuitively and without taking into account the existing risks. To address this need, we have studied ERP maintenance risks. In this way, we have identified and classified the risks affecting the performance of ERP maintenance projects. Moreover, we have applied a multicriteria decision making methodology to assess them. The results will help practitioners to manage ERP maintenance project risks in a better way.

The Replication Mechanism in a Romanian ERP System Environment  [PDF]
Iuliana SCORTA
Informatica Economica Journal , 2008,
Abstract: Modern Relational Database Management Systems have Replication technology. Large enterprises are often spread around the country, and although WANs can be very fast and reliable these days, it is often better for each location to have a local copy of data rather than have a single database at a central location. This usually means that replication is a requirement in order for each location to have the most up-to-date data. This paper reveals a replication mechanism implemented in a Romanian ERP system environment.
ERP projects Internal Stakeholder network and how it influences the projects outcome  [PDF]
K. Jaaskelainen,L-F Pau
Computer Science , 2013,
Abstract: So far little effort has been put into researching the importance of internal ERP project stakeholders mutual interactions,realizing the projects complexity,influence on the whole organization, and high risk for a useful final outcome. This research analyzes the stakeholders interactions and positions in the project network, their criticality, potential bottlenecks and conflicts. The main methods used are Social Network Analysis, and the elicitation of drivers for the individual players. Information was collected from several stakeholders from three large ERP projects all in global companies headquartered in Finland, together with representatives from two different ERP vendors, and with two experienced ERP consultants. The analysis gives quantitative as well as qualitative characterization of stakeholder criticality (mostly the Project Manager(s), the Business Owner(s) and the Process Owner(s)), degree of centrality, closeness, mediating or bottleneck roles, relational ties and conflicts (individual, besides those between business and project organizations), and clique formations. A generic internal stakeholder network model is established as well as the criticality of the project phases. The results are summarized in the form of a list of recommendations for future ERP projects to address the internal stakeholder impacts .Project management should utilize the latest technology to provide tools to increase the interaction between the stakeholders and to monitor the strength of these relations. Social network analysis tools could be used in the projects to visualize the stakeholder relations in order to better understand the possible risks related to the relations (or lack of them).
Management of the Romanian Police Training
Valeria-Liliana-Amelia Purda-Nicoar? (Netotea-Suciu)
Acta Universitatis Danubius : Oeconomica , 2011,
Abstract: In today's dynamic economic environment it is very important for organizations to viewtheir employees as a priority, since they may represent one of their most valuable assets. Althoughmany companies acknowledge the importance of the human factor for the success of the organization,there is sometimes a discrepancy between the company’s belief and the way it is implemented. Evenin periods of economic recession, organizations must not perceive the costs of training and retrainingof staff as arbitrary, a cost which may be reduced or eliminated, according to the budget available, butas an investment in a strategic resource, the results of which become more and more evident in timeand that determine the ability of survival, adaptation and development of the company in a rapidlychanging environment. Since over the last two decades the image of the Ministry of Administrationand Interior, and thus the image of the Romanian Police has depreciated considerably in the publicopinion, it is indispensable for the institution to focus intensely on staff training activities. For thisreason, it must attract the loyalty of skilled and motivated workforces that have the knowledge andability to perform the tasks required. The investment in people may not be sufficient for ensuring thequality and efficiency of services provided, but it certainly is a must.
