Online resources about Enterprise Resource Planning
Social media - Twitter hashtags and lists, LinkedIn groups, Google+ communities
The most useful ERP resources I use can be found on Twitter and LinkedIn but I will update this page with new resources I find on any social network. I included links to every hashtag, list, group, or community so you can easily access them.
There are several types of hashtags that you can follow for ERP news, research, and articles:
- ERP specific hashtags like #ERP #cloudERP or #GovernmentERP
- Industry specific hashtags which can also be used by ERP vendors, users, analysts, or bloggers: #manufacturing #supplychain #MFG #distribution #PublicSector
- Hashtags for various types of software (focus on certain features, delivery model, or company size): #projectmanagement #SMB #finance #govcon #accounting #Fintech #FormulaManufacturing #smallbiz
- More generic hashtags which aren't being used for ERP only but can provide useful information on ERP: #ENSW #softwaredevelopment #cloud #saas #HybridCloud #Opensource
You can create your own lists on Twitter but it's easier to simply follow lists created by other people. Here are a few examples of lists I follow or I created myself:

Supply Chain https://twitter.com/gcourtin/lists/supplychain
Technology Services https://twitter.com/shawnsantos/lists/technologyservices
LinkedIn groups allow you to find information and news about ERP, as well as engage in conversations with ERP professionals of all kinds: users, executives, consultants, analysts, etc.
Google+ may not be as popular as LinkedIn or Twitter, but there are lots of ERP professionals who use it to share valuable information. Here are a few communities that you may want to follow:

Websites and online communities
There are many websites about ERP or the industries using ERP solutions. The list below includes the most popular websites, but I will update it with new findings.
Influencers are experts, consultants, or analysts who do not specialize on one ERP solution only.
