ABSTRACT
The paper discusses the issue of enterprise innovativeness associated with the implementation of Enterprise Systems. The popularity of standard software packages (i.e. ERP systems) can raise questions about their innovativeness. The paper contains the description of the standard software customization methods which are aimed at preserving the required individualization of business processes. It is particularly important in case of main processes which determine gaining or maintaining competitive advantage. In this case, it is a matter of innovation on an industry-level. At the same time standard software packages using pre-configured systems and reference processes are applicable for supporting processes. In such case in spite of imitation, the company can be innovative on its own level. The cited research results and the analysis presented in the article confirm organizational innovativeness of the Enterprise Systems implementations, as well as, to some degree, product and process innovativeness. The IT development, particularly within the field of management information systems, ensures that this situation will not change in years to come.
