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.

Have You Been Ignoring Service-oriented Architecture (SOA) … and Is It Time to Stop?


Enterprise resource planning (ERP) software can facilitate business improvements. But it can also create new challenges, including obsolete technology, lack of flexibility, and high support costs, to name a few. There’s a way to keep your current ERP system while extending its capabilities to remote manufacturing sites, service centers, and supply chain partners: a service-oriented architecture (SOA) approach. Learn more.

Architecture Evolution: Service-oriented Architecture versus Web Services


Collaboration and interoperability are critical where multiple business units reside under one larger corporation, or where there is a requirement to integrate the system into a disparate system when a business-to-business or business-to-consumer extension is part of the business model.

Although each Web service is a discrete unit of code that handles a limited set of tasks, and although Web services remain independent of each other, they can loosely link themselves into a collaborating group that performs a particular task. But, unlike Web services, SOA is a broader concept that runs independent of any specific technology, and even if one uses Web services and object-oriented (OO) approaches, one may not necessarily achieve the holistic state of loosely coupled, autonomous, Read More

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.

NextPage Architecture


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.

Architecture-Centered Information Systems In The Manufacturing Domain - Part III - Steps in the Architecture Process


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.

The benefit of using the ODP is it separates the various concerns (design forces) during the architecture process. The previous viewpoints resolved other complex issues of less concern to distributed systems architects, such as APIs, system policies, and information schemas. Conversely, these other viewpoints were able to resolve their respective design forces, independent of distribution concerns. Decisions must be made regarding system Read More

The Benefits of CRM Internet Architecture


One of the most important aspects of any business management application, including CRM applications, is its underlying architecture. An application’s customizability, adaptability, portability, scalability, and extensibility are all functions of its architecture. A well-designed architecture will thus accommodate growth and adapt to business changes—without affecting the performance of the application or requiring an exhaustive re-implementation.

Generating Revenue from Service
