Modern ERP Processes Behind Historic Scotch Whisky


The whisky industry is an example of a process industry where it is impossible to accurately predict demand for the final product. Goods stocked must also be meticulously accounted for, in both intermediate (partially finished) and bulk forms.

Inter-distillery Trade Adds to the Challenges Moreover, blends can be produced by combining up to 30 different malts of varying age, strength, and origin (Highland, Lowland, or the islands). These blends represent more than 80 percent of Scotch whisky production. Most of these are produced (and probably also aged) by companies other than the one creating the blend, since there is massive inter-distillery trade in different whiskies for blending Read More

SYSPRO - Awaiting Positive IMPACT From Its Brand Unification Part Three: Challenges and User Recommendations


SYSPRO remains a stalwart vendor within the mid-market accounting, manufacturing, and distribution software markets. The current market trend is towards vendors that can provide comprehensive solutions for small and medium-sized companies with a justifiable return on investment (ROI), and SYSPRO seems to have a fair shot. Moreover, with its global coverage, multi-national product’s capabilities, suitability to diverse manufacturing environments, as well as with its cross-platform support and excellent service & support track, the vendor seems poised to give run for the money to almost any contender.

J.D. Edwards - A Collaboration Thought Leader Or A Disguised ERP Follower? Part 2: Evaluating J.D. Edwards


Like most of its peers, J.D. Edwards is hoping to rebound by focusing on Internet collaboration and extended-ERP applications. The company has also differentiated itself from competitors by embedding Enterprise Application Integration (EAI) into its OneWorld product. While J.D. Edwards' move into the EAI arena is indisputably risky, we commend its determination to bite the bullet and include integration systems into the core product offering. However, we also believe that managing this large application portfolio, much of which involves partnering or extensive integration and customization, will be cumbersome. Part 2 presents an evaluat

Will 2013 Be IBS’ Comeback Year? Part 1


Several years ago enterprise applications market observers might have talked about Sweden’s “Three I” enterprise resource planning (ERP) vendors: Intentia, IFS, and IBS. While hardly anyone has ever questioned those publicly traded vendors’ industry savvy and product functionality, all three of them have struggled with stagnant growth and red ink for the major part of the late 1990s and early

wood  goods (CPG), manufacturing, and wood and wood products. As a result, IBS is finally getting profitable, but not necessarily via cost cutting only. The company invested 12 percent of its revenues in research and development (R&D) last year, and saw growth, particularly in the pharma sector and Dynaman WMS sales. IBS has also changed the strategy toward partners—in 2012, 10 percent of its revenues were reportedly via value-added resellers (VARs), and the company wants this figure to be 15 percent in Read More
