Besides their other effects, technologies of the Industry 4.0 have a significant impact on the IT landscape of organizations, including the central part of this landscape – Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) systems. It is, therefore, important for organizations to take this fact into measure when selecting a new ERP system.
Purpose of the article: The aim of the presented research was to propose set of criteria, which could be used by the organization during the choice process of new ERP system in order to evaluate the readiness of every candidate for the challenges related to the Industry 4.0.

Requirements arising from these two areas were then merged together into one set of criteria.
Findings & Value added: Result of the presented research is a comprehensive and easy-to-use set of criteria, which can be used as a decision-making support tool in the business practice.
Key words: ERP systems / Industry 4.0 / Information systems
