A high interest in enterprise resource planning (ERPs) systems exists among small and medium sized enterprises (SMEs). This interest has created new ways of development of ERPs, such as open source ERP development. However, it is unclear what impact this has on diffusion of ERPs. To explore if open source ERP development impact diffusion of ERPs among SMEs a comparative investigation on proprietary ERP development and open source ERP development are reported. Based on identified differences, and a study on challenges in proprietary ERP development conclusions on, how open source ERP systems development impact diffusion among SMEs is presented. The major conclusion, suggest that for the actual diffusion of ERPs among SMEs, it does not matter whether the ERP is open source or proprietary, however it can be assumed that for SMEs open source ERPs could probably increase the interest in ERPs and SMEs possibility to implement ERPs.
