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.

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

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

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
