ERP for the Oil and Gas Industry (Upstream)

The model of ERP systems for the upstream oil and gas sector addresses the particularly specialized business model of this industry. It is common practice for companies, individuals, and government agencies to form partnerships to explore, develop, and share production of oil wells. More often than not, this is a short-term alliance rather than a long-term partnership, and business structuring must therefore be flexible at initial set-up and throughout the lifespan of the venture. This model of ERP systems includes criteria for financials, human resources, production data capture and reporting, maintenance management, and supply chain management (SCM) functionality.

SAP Keeps Traction On Some Tires Of Its Omni-Wheel-Drive Part 2: Challenges and User Recommendations


SAP’s viability and its business applications market’s leadership remains unscathed, as the company remains rock-solid and will be the leader for a long time to come. While SAP has espoused one of the most compelling and promising collaborative-Commerce vision to-date, the ideal enablers of collaboration – it still has to prove to the market it can integrate and deliver, and satisfy the small and medium-size customer with quick implementations and nimble responses to problems.

Rather than offering many proprietary integration brokers, Siebel wants to offer standards-based pre-packaged business processes to plug into industry-standard servers, to raise the least common denominator of interoperability. SAP will thereby be more challenged to deliver a convincing message to both SAP and non-SAP users, given its own integration broker. Also, the uneasy situation with Commerce One should be preying on SAP management's mind (not Read More

Siebel Rallies Its Integration Alliance Troops Part 1: Recent Announcements


Siebel is finally taking 'the bull by the horns' by acknowledging the integration challenges its customers face, and by addressing that issue.

J.D. Edwards Finds Its Inner-Self Within Its 5th Incarnation Part 3: Market Impact


In a nutshell, J.D. Edwards seems poised to deliver applications within its traditional verticals that are wide-ranging, integrated, and modular (loosely decoupled) at the same time, which is apparently a clearer message and a better business model for the company. With a new management team the company seems to have found its soul, as it has finally pinpointed the right offering for its target market (both geography, customer size, and vertical segments wise), and it also seems to be exuding an air of confidence without arrogance, which had rarely, if ever, been seen in the past.

Part two then analyzed the first two of the top five SaaS assumptions that Gartner recently

Gartner points out another way to combine the two above integration methods into an event-driven programming manner. This creates Web service triggers that are based on events occurring in the SaaS service.
