A Collaboratively-Developed Enterprise Resource Planning (CD-ERP) Approach in Libyan Higher Education

Tareq Salahi Almigheerbi, David Ramsey, and Anna Lamek

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).
