Cloud Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) comes with security and confidentiality challenges in a complex and integrated business environment. Cloud ERP systems are explicitly centered around various business enterprises. The growth of businesses worldwide, coupled with the need to do real-time transactions between these businesses, has created the need for more interactions between the ERP systems for these enterprises. To create this new ecosystem of different enterprises, integrating Blockchain Technology with the Cloud ERP offers a new decentralizing approach to ensure the effective creation of this ecosystem. This research identifies the importance and benefits of integrating blockchain technology with Cloud ERP and highlights the security implications this integration may present. The research proposed a Homomorphic Block Approach to implementing Blockchain and Cloud ERP to ensure a secure Cloud ERP data transmission to designated cloud ERP nodes in the ecosystem. This research has contributed significantly to implementing Blockchain and Cloud ERP integration.
