Each year in the banking sector, billions of dollars are invested in various forms of enterprise resource planning systems (ERPs). In most of cases, the business justification of these applications is anchored to various highly promising concepts such as competitive advantage, increased customer value, better management of internal processes, better customer service. On the other hand, is obvious that ERPs are not a panacea for the various aspects of a multifold enterprise performance.

In this special issue, we focus on the emerging agenda for the adoption of ERP systems in the banking industry. We apply a balanced theoretical/business and applied/technological perspective, targeting the development of an excellent quality reference edition for all those interested in the adoption of ERP in the banking sector.
