Abstract

There has been little research on information systems in Iranian companies, and this paper helps to address this by examining the implementation and functioning of integrated software solutions in two small to medium sized enterprises in Iran. This is of particular interest now that the sanctions on trade with Iran have been removed, which will inevitably lead to increased sales opportunities for western technology companies in the country. This study uses a process mapping and systems profiling approach to establish the current status of software implementation in these manufacturing companies. It investigates the underlying information systems strategy and examines how this has been implemented in the core process areas of these companies. The outcome of these major systems projects is assessed, and comparisons are drawn between these Iranian based “Total Systems” software products and similar products more widely available in the developed world.
