Process Manufacturing (ERP)

The simplified definition of enterprise resource planning (ERP) software is a set of applications that automate finance and human resources departments and help manufacturers handle jobs such as order processing and production scheduling. ERP began as a term used to describe a sophisticated and integrated software system used for manufacturing. In its simplest sense, ERP systems create interactive environments designed to help companies manage and analyze the business processes associated with manufacturing goods, such as inventory control, order taking, accounting, and much more. Although this basic definition still holds true for ERP systems, today its definition is expanding. Today's leading ERP systems group all traditional company management functions (finance, sales, manufacturing, human resources) and include, with varying degrees of acceptance and skill, many solutions that were formerly considered peripheral (product data management (PDM), warehouse management, manufacturing execution system (MES), reporting, etc.). While during the last few years the functional perimeter of ERP systems began an expansion into its adjacent markets, such as supply chain management (SCM), customer relationship management (CRM), business intelligence/data warehousing, and e-Business, the focus of this knowledge base is mainly on the traditional ERP realms of finance, materials planning, and human resources. The old adage is "Such a beginning, such an end", and, consequently, many ERP systems' failures could be traced back to a bad software selection. The foundation of any ERP implementation must be a proper exercise of aligning customers' IT technology with their business strategy, and subsequent software selection. This is the perfect time to create the business case and energize the entire organization towards the vision sharing and a buy in, both being the Key Success Factors (KSFs). Yet, these steps are very often neglected despite the amount of expert literature and articles that emphasize their importance.

Global Data Privacy Ensuring International Compliance for Your Organization


In an increasingly global and interconnected economy, many companies are moving to cloud-based, global HR solutions. But for multinational and other large organizations, this means meeting stringent region-specific rules and regulations governing data privacy. It’s important to understand not only the applicable policies for the region in which your company is headquartered, but also for each jurisdiction where your company has employees.

Each employer has the responsibility to learn and follow the relevant international regulations regarding data privacy. Learn which of these provisions applies to your organization and what you can do to ensure compliance in this white paper.

Privacy is likely to be a critical topic for multinational organizations for years to come. Therefore each multinational organization must seriously consider these data handling rules and regulations. Laws and regulations such as the EU Data Protection Directive, Safe Harbor, and PIPEDA, to name just a few, have hefty fines and potentially even criminal penalties for organizations that fail to follow these guidelines.

This white paper looks at data privacy in the European Union and elsewhere around the world, and provides a list of questions to ask about a potential solution when choosing a human capital management (HCM) solution provider, information that can help you avoid the risks surrounding data handling and ensure all of your employee and customer data remains safe, secure, and compliant into the future.
