The purpose of this study was to observe the mediating role of ERP adoption on the relationship between two latent variables, technological context, and organizational performance. The study compared the models with and without the presence of the mediator, emphasizing on the empirical data collected from 285 manufacturing industries in Thailand. The results suggested that ERP adoption had mediated the relationship between technological context and organizational performance with a positive impact on organizational performance. The research implied that ERP adoption had a crucial role in organizational performance.
