ERP for Services (Non-manufacturing)

Typically, ERP systems designed for services industries offer modules that provide back-office support, customer relationship management, time management, expense management, resource management, and project management capabilities. Depending on the vertical market, additional industry-specific functionality may be included to address unique business requirements. Consequently, project-centric systems for accounting, architecture, construction, engineering, and professional services industries will support project management functionality; whereas health care, field service, distribution, and government systems will support functionality unique to those vertical markets.

Network Security Best Practices: Competitive Analysis


When it comes to security architecture, choosing a system that’s scalable and applicable to a broad set of security needs is a wise move. New security services for Internet protocol (IP) networks are emerging that enable new levels of scalability and manageability—while remaining completely transparent to the network. By applying this type of system, you build an optimal framework for future security applications.

These groups may be structured based on functional boundaries such as HR, Finance and Engineering or by specific location – Dallas, New York, etc. A PEP can be part of one or multiple groups. By grouping secure endpoints together, global security policies can be defined that can easily implement entitlement and security services for all members of the Read More

The Steel Manufacturing Industry: What Use Is an ERP System, Anyway?


TEC regularly works with companies to identify the right software vendors for their industry and particular needs. I’m going to provide you with information about ERP systems and how they relate to steel industry requirements (note: you can always consult our Vendor Showcase to find out more about specific software vendors). An ERP system is typically considered to be a company’s IT

With the help of SOA, for example,  it’s easier to “break” an ERP application into small modular components which use industry-specific processes to communicate, interact, and operate. SOA has helped ERP vendors move away from the “one size fits all” methodology—as we all know, no two organizations have the same requirements. In the steel manufacturing Read More

Great Product: Too Bad The Architecture Doesn’t Fit


During the process of product selection a great deal of attention is given to the functional capabilities of the software being evaluated. While this aspect is obviously important, ignoring the technical mechanisms by which the software actually operates can be fatal to a project. In this document we explain how to avoid the pitfalls.

Reed - November 29, 2003 Introduction Most potential customers understand that detailed scripted scenarios should be performed with software vendors who are on the short list of candidates, in order to evaluate the functional abilities of products being considered. Unfortunately, many companies neglect to investigate the technological underpinnings of these products during the evaluation phase. This can Read More

Keeping Cash Flow in Focus While Driving Business Performance


One of the most basic business axioms, held dear by all firms but especially small companies, is that cash flow is king. Customer payments are essential for fueling all other business activity, from staff salaries, to raw materials, to rent. Growing firms need to be especially attentive to cash flow because sales increases typically require new investments associated with product or service production before payments are received.

Manufacturing Software for an Integrated Steel Plant


Manufacturing processes for an integrated steel plant typically encompass three distinct types of manufacturing: flow manufacturing, process manufacturing, and mill manufacturing, meaning that such a plant is effectively a mixed-mode manufacturer. Software systems for these manufacturers' diverse needs are of critical importance. Learn about specific software capabilities you should be looking for.

architecture flow diagram  Software for an Integrated Steel Plant An integrated steel plant is huge by any measurement. Capacity is generally more than 1 million tonnes per annum, and in many big plants, it is more than 10 million tonnes per annum. The raw materials that are consumed are also in huge quantities, be it coal (coking coal or non-coking coal depending on technology used for iron making), iron ore, limestone, dolomite, or any other raw material. Properties of these raw materials vary greatly. Despite the Read More

What's Wrong with Application Software? It's the Economics


Enterprise architecture is a technology problem, not the business problem. The business problem is time, money, and quality. Focusing on modifications as an example, the reason that modifications are bad is that they take too long, cost too much, and often have quality issues.

At that point in time, the architects did a very good job given the realities of that point in time. Most have also done a good job of evolving their enterprise architecture to address evolving needs and the availability of new technologies. But evolution does have limits, no matter how brilliant the architects or much money is spent. The limits come from a number of decisions, well made at the time, that are now not Read More

Enterprise IT Modernization: Service-oriented Architecture Enterprise Adoption Road Map


With ever-changing technology, businesses often spend too much time and money trying to sustain their outdated systems. But is it possible to maintain a legacy system without the substantial costs of frequently updating it? By adopting service-oriented architecture (SOA)—which provides a suite of automated tools and services for migrating and extending legacy platforms—businesses can maximize quality and minimize costs.

Data-oriented Architecture: A Loosely Coupled Real-time SOA


Today’s extensive use of data collection tools coupled with the easy access to communication networks has woven more devices and systems into the fabric of our daily lives. As the scale of integration and complexity grows, so does the need for the appropriate paradigm to address it. In order to scale, system software architecture must be organized around a common-shared information model that can span multiple systems.
