Warehouse Management Systems (WMS)

A warehouse management system (WMS) should provide database and user-level tools in order for a company to optimize its storage facilities while at the same time providing user level task direction and activity support. The WMS should enable warehouse operators to optimize pick, put-away, and replenishment functions by employing powerful system logic to select the best locations and sequences.

How to Access and Buy Business Management Software


For most companies, changing accounting software is a daunting challenge. Not only is transitioning the accounting function to a new software package tricky in itself, but it is usually catalyzed by one or more business challenges that are (hopefully) solved by the new system.

Identity-based NAC: Using Identity to Put the “Control” in Network Access Control


Access control is more than just checking devices for malware before admitting them to a network. Identity-based network access control (NAC) looks at the identities of users and devices, and knows what resource they are authorized to access, allowing enterprises to tightly control access, and the devices and behavior of users.

user access request  - What is the user trying to access Keep in mind that access decisions are neither one-time nor static in nature. As attributes change (strength of authentication, location, device), so should the policy. For example, a contractor can be prevented from accessing the network from his/her personal machine from their network at home during the day. But the nature of the project may require that contractor to work from home for only the next two days, which should be easily changed and enforced within the Read More

SAP NetWeaver Background, Direction, and User Recommendations


SAP is using NetWeaver to reach to the shop floor by aggregating and presenting information to users, thus empowering them to improve manufacturing performance. It is also addressing concerns about the lack of standards for interoperability between various systems.

So when the user company gets NetWeaver, it will also get the mappings from SAP, and the rules about messages, which should all be one core NetWeaver-based part, allowing users to achieve interoperability without having to go out and buy the adapter from somebody else. SAP has repeatedly stated that when its customers strongly demand it to incorporate new functionality into its product suite, it is possible for the vendor to make acquisitions to meet these needs. However, this approach Read More

Facing A Selection? Try A Knowledge-Based Matchmaker Part 4: User Recommendations


This tutorial identifies the significance of researching technology vendors to both buyers and vendors/VARs. Buyers require research to determine the short list and vendors/VARs can use research to assess the viability of opportunities before committing time and money to a sales effort. Since a 'one-size-fits-all' product is still not a viable solution for most clients, the ability of technology products to meet clients' needs depends on client requirements. The Catch 22 for both buyers and vendors/VARs is to pinpoint the right match in this ongoing 'dating game'.

Issuing a comprehensive Request For Information (RFI) to a number of vendors is an important first step in the selection process. Once the RFIs have been returned, analyze each RFI to determine the strengths and weaknesses of Read More

Access to Critical Business Intelligence: Challenging Data Warehouses?

The Rise of Mobile Access to Your ERP Data


Mobile user access to enterprise resource planning (ERP) and other back-office systems has become a core requirement as organizations seek operational efficiency and deepening customer engagement. Without mobile access, system users are disadvantaged by needing to return to a desktop, often after a job is completed, to enter data relating to that job and get information about other jobs. Frequently that information is not entered at all, which becomes a further hindrance to user adoption of your ERP investment.

Mobile users increasingly are looking for ease of access to ERP information to perform their jobs on any device at any time. This requires the mobile solution to handle:

  • Different mobile devices and applications for different roles/jobs
  • Ability to be used by staff with limited computer or language skills, in adverse conditions
In this age of “bring your own device” (BYOD), mobile devices are affordable, mainstream, reliable, secure, and scalable to run multiple applications. We are now able to prove return on investments from those organizations that have implemented mobile solutions and developed BYOD policies. In today’s environment, mobile solutions are seen as core drivers of organizations pushing to gain operational efficiencies over their competitors. According to a recent report from Aberdeen Group, “enterprise mobile apps in 2013 are no longer ‘nice to have’—they’ve become essential enablers of organizational transformation, by increasing operational efficiency, accelerating time-to-decision, deepening customer engagement, and streamlining workflow processes.”
