Abstract

Nowadays, organizations benefit from new technologies because they improve their efficiency and their performance. These technologies are themselves developed within organizations in the form of business solutions in a perspective of transformation and innovation. This paper highlights obvious strategic and operational tools and to demonstrate the cohesion of the evolution of science and technology in society. Whether these are based on scientific research or Research and Development (R & D) in an organizational context, their social and environmental impacts remain intrinsically linked. Thus, from intraorganizational systems to interorganizational systems, there arises connection between stakeholders through ERP software packages upstream (B2B) and an interconnectivity with customers/consumers downstream (B2C) thanks in particular to social networks and digital applications.

 

Key words: Organizational transformations, business technology solutions, ERP, science and technology, industries transformations.
