He who fails to plan is planning to fail.”

- Winston Churchill (1874-1965), iconic statesman and world leader.

For any organization desirous of success, planning is crucial. Whether it’s planning for customer demand or regulatory compliance, ERP or Enterprise Resource Planning can help organizations navigate the intricacies of hierarchies and complexities of data.erp-cloud

An ERP system collects and collates information from all corners of an organization to improve efficiencies and effectiveness through optimal usage of resources, better planning, faster decision-making and eliminating redundancies. For example, an ERP system may be responsible for tracking inventory in Manufacturing, maintaining accounts in Finance, monitoring campaigns in Marketing, procuring materials in Supply Chain Management, and much more. In other words, a single ERP system can replace the traditional paradigm of individual standalone systems for the different business functions that don’t communicate well with one another. In this way, ERP systems transcend functional boundaries in organizations.

Today, with the growth of virtualization and cloud computing, you can get more from your ERP system in terms of greater elasticity, reduction in database costs and lower downtime risk. This paper tells you how.

Many organizations which had adopted ERP earlier had found it necessary to implement multiple systems to address diverse needs. While this may have been optimal some years back, improved functionality today can allow consolidation. This paper explains why this is necessary and how it can be achieved.

This paper deals with the onerous task of upgrading ERP modules. It describes the key challenges in ERP upgrade projects, and maps specific database virtualization functions to each challenge.

Enterprise Asset Management (EAM) can be considered a specialized subset of ERP dealing with assets such as plant and equipment. This paper,  crafted with inputs from the world’s leading EAM experts, provides 7 tips to select the right EAM solution.

Most ERP software was not designed for a project-oriented environment like ETO (Engineer to Order), also known as project-based, custom, make-to-order or contract manufacturing. These terms refer to organizations that manufacture products to customer specifications with a high level of personalization. This paper explains how ERP can be successfully implemented in such demanding environments.
