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.

The Next Big Thing or Integration-The Interaction Server Part 2: Possible Solutions


Web Services is a no-brainer as a standard mechanism for providing access to enterprise applications and data; this will allow businesses to create words out of alphabet soup (ERP, SFA, CRM, EAI, EJB, COM, BFD). Nothing about Web Services, however, addresses the front-end complexity of dealing with multiple channels, such as supporting disconnected devices and asynchronous interaction models that are required by wireless and mobile connectivity.

container architecture  Server hosts a run-time container to manage interactions between multiple connected and disconnected devices and channels (e.g. HTML browsers, mobile phones, PDA's, Voice, Web Services) and the systems that support the enterprise. Such interactions can be simple requests for information, or complex, multi-step business processes that touch many back office systems and have transactional implications.

Architecture-Centered Information Systems In The Manufacturing Domain - Part V - Applying the Methodology


Architecture bridges the semantic gap between the requirements and software. Application software systems must be architected in order to deal with the current and future needs of the business organization. Managing software projects using architecture-centered methodologies must be an intentional step in the process of deploying information systems - not an accidental by-product of the software acquisition and integration process.

Stream-Based Architecture of Software Configuration Management (SCM)


Most software configuration management (SCM) systems rely on metadata annotations to support basic system operations, such as computing the contents of software configurations. With AccuRev, configurations are first-class objects called "streams," whose contents aren't defined in terms of metadata annotations at all. AccuRev relies on the chronology of SCM operations, enabling users to leverage the incremental nature of the process.

Understanding Service-oriented Architecture and Its Impact on Small Manufacturers


Within the manufacturing community, the arrival of the latest, greatest enterprise software technology is often met with skepticism. The right service-oriented architecture (SOA) application, however, can reverse such doubts, as SOA continues to emerge as the dominant technical platform for building next-generation business applications. Its potential to transform enterprise software applications is not only well hyped—it’s also well documented.
