Discrete Manufacturing (ERP)

The simplified definition of enterprise resource planning (ERP) software is a set of applications that automate finance and human resources departments and help manufacturers handle jobs such as order processing and production scheduling. ERP began as a term used to describe a sophisticated and integrated software system used for manufacturing. In its simplest sense, ERP systems create interactive environments designed to help companies manage and analyze the business processes associated with manufacturing goods, such as inventory control, order taking, accounting, and much more. Although this basic definition still holds true for ERP systems, today its definition is expanding. Today’s leading ERP systems group all traditional company management functions (finance, sales, manufacturing, and human resources). Many systems include, with varying degrees of acceptance and skill, solutions that were formerly considered peripheral such as product data management (PDM), warehouse management, manufacturing execution system (MES), and reporting. During the last few years the functional perimeter of ERP systems began an expansion into its adjacent markets, such as supply chain management (SCM), customer relationship management (CRM), business intelligence/data warehousing, and e-business, the focus of this knowledge base is mainly on the traditional ERP realms of finance, materials planning, and human resources. The foundation of any ERP implementation must be a proper exercise of aligning customers'' IT technology with their business strategies, and subsequent software selection.

A Definition of Data Warehousing


There is a great deal of confusion over the meaning of data warehousing. Simply defined, a data warehouse is a place for data, whereas data warehousing describes the process of defining, populating, and using a data warehouse. Creating, populating, and querying a data warehouse typically carries an extremely high price tag, but the return on investment can be substantial. Over 95% of the Fortune 1000 have a data warehouse initiative underway in some form.

The Operational Data Lake: Your On Ramp to Big Data


Companies recognize the need to integrate big data into their real-time analytics and operations, but this poses a lot of technical and resource challenges. Meanwhile, those organizations that have operational data stores (ODSs) in place find that, while useful, they are expensive to scale. The ODS gives real-time visibility into operational data. While more cost-effective than a data warehouse, it uses outdated scaling technology, and performance upgrades require very specialized hardware. Plus, ODSs just can't handle the volume of data that has become a matter of fact for businesses today.

This white paper discusses the concept of the operational data lake, and its potential as an on-ramp to big data by upgrading outdated ODSs. Companies that are building a use case for big data, or those considering an upgrade to their ODS, may benefit from this stepping stone. With a Hadoop relational database management system (RDBMS), companies can expand their big data practices at their own pace.
