cloud computing wms  and the SaaS and cloud computing strategy is something worth following. If well created and applied, the latter can successfully attract the type of customers described in the introduction: willing to try cloud computing but only when this delivery model has proven its effectiveness for ERP solutions.

Warehouse Management Systems (WMS)

A warehouse management system (WMS) should provide database and user-level tools in order for a company to optimize its storage facilities while at the same time providing user level task direction and activity support. The WMS should enable warehouse operators to optimize pick, put-away, and replenishment functions by employing powerful system logic to select the best locations and sequences.

KronosWorks 2010: Of Next-Gen User Experience & Workforce Mobility


Given our shared presence in the Boston metro area, I’ve had numerous contacts and interactions with Kronos Incorporated in the past, but this fall was my very first attendance of the vendor’s annual user conference: KronosWorks 2010. That attendance was a worthwhile use of my time and a great learning experience about the company and its customers. As some background, here is Ventana Research’s

To that end, customers have many choices in terms of Payment (i.e., perpetual license, subscription, or rent-to-own), Deployment (i.e., in a customer data center or hosted in secure off-site facility), and System management (i.e., either maintained by the customer or Kronos).

Breathing Open Air at NetSuite


It has been almost two years since NetSuite Inc. (NYSE: N) went public and my analysis of that blockbuster initial public offering (IPO) event. Needless to say, much has happened at the bullish software company since.   NetSuite positions itself as “a leading vendor of on-demand (or cloud computing) integrated business management software suites for midsized

Will 2013 Be IBS’ Comeback Year? Part 1


Several years ago enterprise applications market observers might have talked about Sweden’s “Three I” enterprise resource planning (ERP) vendors: Intentia, IFS, and IBS. While hardly anyone has ever questioned those publicly traded vendors’ industry savvy and product functionality, all three of them have struggled with stagnant growth and red ink for the major part of the late 1990s and early

IBS’ go-to-market strategy for Enterprise is to target tier two companies (with revenues between $100 million and $1.5 billion [USD]) across three key categories—strategic, maintain, and opportunistic. The company’s strategic focus areas will be wholesale distribution, food and beverage, automotive, and pharma. IBS has key Read More

Infor ION-izes its Open SOA Strategy - Part 1


2010 has certainly been an interesting (if not a crossroads) year for Infor. Namely, after a number of new high-profile hires at the beginning of the year, which signalled Infor’s intention to be taken seriously, the vendor then entered an eerily quieter period of several months. Except for the ongoing vocal marketing campaign entitled “Down with Big ERP” with witty

Infor Veterans Field Questions I have to give credit to Infor for never dodging tough and prodding questions, both in the past and this time. Recently Read More
