The trade-off between Best of Breed functionality and ease of integration is no longer as simple as it once was. Over the generations, Enterprise Resource Planning has continued to expand, blurring the boundaries of core ERP functionality.

At the same time, the consolidation within the software industry is having a

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.

The Many Faces of PLM Part One: Event Summary


Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) software solutions, like many of the application suites that have come before it, are a collection of different offerings that serve a common theme and contribute to overlapping value propositions. Like previous application suites, there is strategic value in approaching PLM as a set of inter-related requirements as opposed to just a collection of function-specific requirements. This is a report on the observations from the 2003 Product Development Manager’s Association (PDMA) Conference.

pure wellness healthvault  included large ERP vendors, pure-play PLM suite providers, and niche application providers that handle very specialized areas within PLM. Each of these vendors highlighted how their particular solution contributed to the overlapping value propositions that are associated with PLM. SAP , for example, presented a new collaborative application for NPDI in addition to their mySAP PLM solution. The new application, known as SAP xPD, was developed to streamline the process of designing and developing Read More

IFS Wins in Field Service Management


While it may not be surprising that IFS has lately had a streak of enterprise resource planning (ERP) and enterprise asset management (EAM) wins in its traditional asset-intensive industries, it is interesting to note that some recent wins and expanded project footprints are in the realm of field service management (FSM). IFS has tackled this attractive software category via the recent

pure wellness healthvault  TOA Technologies , a pure cloud FSM platform that includes appointment scheduling and dispatch, call status, and some real-time optimization. The solution is seemingly great for high-volume, low task complexity field service applications, with its current focus on services for utilities. But, TOA is much narrower in its service lifecycle management (SLM) footprint, i.e., offering hardly anything in the areas of parts planning and inventory management. Along similar lines is ClickSoftware , although the Read More

IP Phone Buyer’s Guide


Long-term cost savings and extensive feature sets make voice over Internet protocol (VoIP) phone systems an attractive option for many businesses. But with prices for a single VoIP phone ranging from $150 to $700 (USD) or more, switching to VoIP can be an expensive proposition. Find out what to look for in a VoIP phone system, how to buy, what you can expect to pay, and how to get the most out of your investment.

There are two primary approaches for businesses: a complete overhaul or a converged deployment. For a company looking to abandon its legacy phone system altogether, a complete overhaul of its telephone system makes the most sense, both technically and financially. This start-from-scratch approach entails implementing a pure IP solution, along with dedicated IP phones, from a Read More

Lessons Learned on the Inca Trail


Peru, a country with a glorious past and an uncertain future, stands at the crossroads. The inability to attract significant trade or investment due to the crime and lack of democratic principles in the nation should be addressed as a matter of urgency. Peru can learn from countries that share the legacy of lost empires -- for example China -- and examine the principles of their ancestors to create a sustainable economic environment.

ERP Vendors Intrude on SCE/WMS Safe Haven


Within the warehouse management system (WMS) market, which is still the main breadwinning offering for most of the SCE vendors, most products are functionally on par with mere nuances in ease of configuration or industry focus to differentiate the winner. ERP vendors have taken advantage of this unfavorable perception for WMS specialists to in the very least shore up their huge install bases, if not compete for some "green field" WMS opportunities.

Marketing Automation: Coming of Age Slowly


Marketing is possibly the only remaining major business function yet to revise its core processes to take advantage of IT that can cut time, costs, and improve the quality of its operation. Nevertheless with marketing automation there are huge untapped opportunities for business improvement, given marketing has a unique vantage point in any enterprise to understand the customer needs, buying behavior, and value perception.

One reason for this is the ability of large packaged ERP or CRM suite providers to slow or even stall enterprise Read More

Are “Best Practices” Dragging Your Organization Down?


When APICS invited me to be part of next October’s international conference on best practices for global supply chain and operations management, I started exploring ideas revolving around best practices, including this deceptively simple question: What is a best practice, anyway? Many organizations fail to understand the true meaning of “best practice,” erroneously treating this

pure wellness healthvault  “best practice” as a pure buzzword. My point: If you are guilty of “best practice” behavior and are not trying to enhance your processes, you are already behind the eight ball. So, What Is a Best Practice? Best practices are practices that others have already tried and implemented in order to enhance processes or to eliminate redundant/ineffective process tasks. According to APICS’ Operations Management Body of Knowledge (OMBOK) framework definition , best practices are “techniques, methods, Read More

Comparison of ERP and CRM Markets' Life cycle Snapshots


Today's enterprise applications are required as a matter of course to address more than the processes taking place within the walls of an enterprise. Almost all traditional ERP vendors (small and big alike) had to experience a wake-up call and have long been trying to expand their product offering in tune with the ever-changing trends and requirements of the new collaborative economy. The need for providing a full, comprehensive CRM suite rather than an individual solution or a bundle of point solutions for each distinct CRM area remains firm, and will urge further market consolidation.

pure wellness healthvault  as droves of smaller pure CRM vendors have been hard pressed to survive owing to the combined effect of CRM users' disenchantment with the products' hardly ever materialized benefits, after a hasty infatuation with its touted silver bullet mantra (which once also happened to its older sibling ERP's users), compounded with the tight IT budgets due to the worldwide economic recovery delay, but especially with Microsoft's entry into the already crowded place. To that end, in December, Microsoft Business Read More
