Q: How are HRIS and ERP related?

Q: Do I need to replace my existing HRIS when my company buys an ERP?
A: Depending on what type of Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) system a company installs, its current HRIS infrastructure may or may not need to be changed. Some HRIS' infrastructure is incompatible with ERP systems, while others can be connected (integrated) with minimal customization.
