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.

But SOA is also a potential minefield: hype is raising expectations beyond reality in an environment that is already stressed. In fact, managed poorly, SOA can be an expensive and spectacular failure.

Why .NET Technology Is Important for ERP


.NET technology is a wake-up call, and some people are sleeping through it! Remaining competitive means mission-critical software systems, such as enterprise resource planning (ERP) applications, must be designed from the ground up for connectivity and integration. But software developers don’t advertise their shortcomings, and some ERP vendors—and by association, their customers—are being left behind.

.net architecture  the technology in Microsoft''s .NET Early Adopter labs, Intuitive began to not just use .NET, but to design a completely new ERP architecture to fully leverage .NET. For the reasons we are about to explore, Intuitive realized that .NET warrants a complete and total conversion of every line of code. Why .NET Software is Better Software .NET is not another version of Microsoft Windows; it is the next-generation computing platform from Microsoft. At the core of the .NET hype is a new layer of software that Read More

Traditional document management systems are geared toward control, discipline, and orchestrated workflow. Contrast this with the untamed world of ad hoc processes that drive so many of our activities. In this environment, teams are dynamic and agile. Imposing structure and formal processes almost always results in confusion, resentment, and lost productivity. The needs of distributed teams require a different approach.

When it comes to demand intelligence, which comes first? The right solution or the right architecture?


Hands down, it’s the right business intelligence (BI) architecture. If your enterprise currently uses retail demand data in a manner that favors either tier one (corporate users) or tier two members (retail sales team), then you don’t have the right architecture in place. And that means you don’t have the right demand intelligence (DI) solution. Read on to learn about what's important in a demand intelligence architecture strategy and how to choose the right DI architecture for your company.
