Nowadays the traditional management approach has given its place to modern mentality. The traditional structured functionality has evolved into system understanding which concerns the whole of enterprise. System approach is used to solve the problems of the organization. The strategic weapons which are necessary to manage the organization as a whole, are "information systems". The critical points about rational management of organizations and obtainment competitive advantage are information and using of information. An enterprise solution on the basis of the software is needed to ensure the integrity of the organization and the integration between the elements. Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) whose development is based on 1960s, is a holistic software that is fairly valid in terms of organizations. Disadvantages of ERP has led organizations to search for different software. Enterprise Application Integration (EAI) emerges as solution partner in this sense. In the study, explaining the establishment holism in the organizations and ensuring integration in the focal point, ERP and EAI are analyzed in a comparative manner. (C) 2014 The Authors.
