Multidimensional Management of Accounting Information in ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning) Systems
This study aims to highlight the importance of improving ERP systems by concatenating the multitude of accounting data and information they are managing in a module or a synthetic informational series able to accurately identify and characterize the user’s area of interest from source to final form.
Computerized accounting information management becomes a science of informational dosage which must ensure an optimum ratio between over-information and lack of essential information, between information and disinformation, as well as between useful information and useless information. This can only be achieved by optimizing the information attributes related to identifying and characterizing the objects, transactions and events, data management and reporting structures.
ERP information systems allow the possibility of creating multiple information structures related to objects, transactions and events. These information structures may be of type 1-n-m or type x-n-m. In order to obtain this type of information one should ensure a better horizontal and vertical integration of the ERP system components. Through this study we are trying to bring into question the possibility of multidimensional information on objects, transactions and events managed by ERP systems, especially in digital accounting.
