Professional Doctorate - Doctor of Business Administration (DBA) This research explores factors influencing the development of information communication technology strategies, by small and medium sized enterprises with offices in Hong Kong and manufacturing facilities in Southern China, for managing their internal supply chains. It also investigates factors for the successful deployment of integrated information communication systems, in particular, Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP). There is little research on the use of enterprise resource planning in small and medium sized enterprises and no research has been discovered on information sharing of small and medium sized enterprises in Hong Kong. Exploring issues influencing the increasing demand for in-time and quality information sharing and success factors during the implementation of enterprise resource planning will help small and medium sized enterprises in Hong Kong to develop and sustain their competitiveness in the new era of a dynamic e-commerce world. Because the enterprise resource planning market for small and medium sized enterprises in China and Hong Kong is in a development phase, this study will help solution providers and consultants to understand the market for small and medium sized enterprises in China and Hong Kong and assist small and medium sized enterprises in China and Hong Kong to understand the needs for and requirements of enterprise resource planning.
