Why Enterprise Search Is Crucial to Your ERP System

Getting information into your enterprise resource planning (ERP) system is one thing. Getting information back out can be quite another. That’s why enterprise search capability has become so hot of late. But which way to go? Add-on, stand-alone search tools, or built-in, tightly integrated search capability? Read Why Enterprise Application Search Is Crucial to Your ERP System to find out.

If you’ve ever been involved in an ERP selection process, you know it’s no easy task. Learn how Kelly-Moore Paints, America’s largest employee-owned paint company, found a way to streamline, facilitate, and simplify the ERP selection process in this TEC ERP selection case study.

ERP for services is coming of age. In TEC’s podcast A Guide to ERP for Service Organizations, analyst Neil Stolovitsky chats with Oracle’s Ted Kempf about the unique implementation requirements of ERP systems for professional service organizations, as well as the role technology plays in running a successful service business.

ERP used to be out of reach for midsized companies, but not any more. The problem is, small to medium businesses (SMBs) are demanding more and more complex solutions—but budgets have not expanded along with their needs. Read how one ERP solution for SMBs is solving the problem by delivering more technology for fewer dollars in SAP's Business One, The Answer to the Challenges of SMB ERP Software Selection. Speaking of SMB challenges, whatever happened to the SMB advantage? Weigh in on the TEC blog post The SMB Advantage—Now You See It, Now You Don’t.
