Latest Development on Epicor's Trying The Divestiture Tack


Even as TEC analyzed Epicor's sale of its Impresa for MRO division, Epicor announced the sale of its Platinum for Windows (PFW) product line. Plagued by depleted revenues and continued hefty losses amid a difficult market situation, Epicor is trying to pull some other beleaguered competitors' trick - the sale of non-core parts of the business.

SAPPHIRE 2014: SAP Simplifies


At SAP’s recent SAPPHIRE NOW event, two themes were clear regarding SAP’s focus in the near future—the company’s commitment to simplification, which in SAP terms means to “run simple,” and second, maybe derived from the first idea, to embrace the cloud even more. As ironically as it sounds for the German company, at times accused of doing precisely the opposite with the offering of systems too complex in many aspects, the simplification movement makes sense and accommodates what the industry certainly will require from them and other vendors in the near future.

Simplification will likely turn out to be key for a company with a huge amount of complexity within its trenches. A good bet, yet a hard one. Questions of course, will come with regards to the effect in the existing SAP ecosystem (partners, customers and SAP itself) and how SAP will achieve this goal promptly, in a timely manner, and effectively. Of course, much more happened during SAP’s main conference, such as the Read More

Surviving Amid "ERP Sharks" as a “Visionary Vendor for the Pragmatic User” (Part II)


Part I of this blog topic introduced SYSPRO and its traditional vertical solutions. It also analyzed the vendor's PragmaVision strategy to provide to pragmatic (yet visionary) technology buyers' need.

SYSPRO’s organically grown revenue of only about US$60 million (without any major acquisition ever) is rather peculiar (even if impressive) in the market. The vendor does not appear to have an acquisition strategy, other than a reseller partner-based growth strategy. There are no lofty aspirations to, say, become a billion dollar company in five years; the company simply wants Read More

Rapidly Consolidating Enterprise Applications Market: The Worlds of 'Organic Growers' and 'Aggressive Consolidators'

Gaining Competitive Advantage through Global Product Development


Product development is a mission-critical process. And it can also be very expensive. But thanks to modern computer-aided design (CAD), computer-aided engineering (CAE), computer-aided manufacturing (CAM), and product lifecycle management (PLM) systems, many manufacturing companies now have the tools that allow better alignment of cost and value-add. This is what’s referred to as “global product development.” Learn more.

As low-cost countries strengthen their economies, their purchasing power will rise and they will demand increasingly sophisticated goods and services from high-cost countries. Furthermore, as the low-cost countries accept the rote and mundane activities of product development, they will free up more time for higher-cost engineers to work Read More

Enabling Security in the Software Development Life Cycle


When companies discover new security vulnerabilities, they must retrofit the affected software with an appropriate patch and fend off the wrath of customers. Each newly discovered vulnerability results in a frantic patch, halfway deployed, and potentially opens up another hole. That’s why you should address security vulnerabilities during the software development process—before you get locked into a game of catch-up.

Key Metrics for Monitoring New Product Development


Since our research-driven beginnings, Johnson & Johnson Advanced Sterilization Products (ASP) has continually improved the new product development (NPD) process. Detailed process mapping has revealed three tiers of business metrics, starting with drivers and moving up through execution metrics to business performance metrics. When driver metrics improves, so does business performance. Six Sigma tools helps identify specific metrics at all tiers and the causality linkages among them. Each NPD process step at ASP results in a deliverable, and each deliverable relates to a trade-off triangle (cost-time-resources) and, ultimately, to investment dollars. To track performance, ASP calculates how actual NPD decisions and what-if scenarios affect deliverables, alter investment triangles, and thereby influence business results. ASP uses similar process and tools, including the investment triangles and Six Sigma QFD, to make idea management decisions. The IDweb real-time software environment enables both the NPD and idea management processes at ASP. By deploying the strategic planning, idea management, portfolio and pipeline management, process management, and resource management modules of IDweb, ASP has increased throughput by 20 percent and reduced cycle time by 40 percent.
