Abstract—Like other HE institutes in the world, Libyan
universities have continuously been working on developing
their own ISs or adopting commercial solutions. Both models
have shown negative results to some degree. This research was
aimed, therefore, to introduce a new model, called:
Collaboratively-Developed Enterprise Resource Planning
(CD-ERP) to be applied in Libyan Higher Education (LHE).
Generally, the model is based on two main principles: ERP
packages and community-source. This study comes as the
conclusion to a series of studies in a project to assess the
CD-ERP model. After investigating the applicability of this
model in the Libyan context, a CD-ERP model for LHE is
proposed in this paper, including: the business model of the
consortium, cloud architecture, alongside several
recommendations for successful and efficient transformation
from the current systems to the CD-ERP model.
Index Terms—Collaboratively-developed IS, ERP, cloud-computing, multi-tenancy, community-source, Libyan Higher Education (LHE).
