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.

Dassault Systèmes-Expanding Product Development and the 3D Experience


The Dassault Systèmes vision is to enable everyone—from product designers, engineers, and suppliers to end users and their respective communities—to create, share, and experience the three-dimensional virtual world, thereby maximizing the value of their intellectual property and digital assets. In this article, TEC principal analyst P.J. Jakovljevic reports on the 3D design tools he recently saw demoed, how they enable collaboration, and their application to manufacturing and other sectors.

bi engineering and architecture case studies  This will be a big cultural change for Dassault Systèmes, which historically has driven product delivery based on technological content by its (sometimes know-it-all) engineering experts rather than on market requirements. Getting more direct market input into the product development process from across these many industries is a step in right direction, but it will likely create challenges in setting development priorities. The reorganization might also cause some commotion in the partner ecosystem. Read More

New Product Development and Introduction (NPDI)


New product development and introduction (NPDI) is probably the most important process for many companies, but also one of the least understood. While NPDI is responsible for revenues, few companies assign an owner for the whole process. Instead, it is usually driven through a series of functional “silos,” causing delay—and the loss of the original market requirements.

Epicor Insights 2014–Raising the ERP Game


The major “game raising” news at Epicor Insights 2014 was the availability of Epicor ERP version 10 (and the underlying Epicor ICE 3.0 architecture). This release seems to be about “cleaning the house” and becoming fully Microsoft-centric, with better scalability, speed/performance, interoperability, and extensibility than Epicor ERP version 9 and Vantage/Vista 8.0, and the ability to go after larger global companies as a result.

The decision was then made to add CRM within Epicor ERP, but those capabilities are just good enough for manufacturers. The situation is different on the Epicor Retail side, where the Read More

Meet the New (Revolutionized) Progress Software


According to TEC principal analyst P.J. Jakovljevic, some solid, growing, and profitable software companies never get the respect they deserve. Progress Software is one such company. Its OpenEdge platform is now fully enabled for business process management and for the cloud, and it has a winning team of acquisitions. Has Progress finally found the right balance of revenue streams and diversification to be more than the sum of its parts?

bi engineering and architecture case studies  companies that use classic BI tools are driving in the rearview mirror—using past data to try to predict the future. Instead, companies must become operationally responsive by reaching the following goals: continuously mitigate risks and threats (e.g., regulatory requirements), optimize operations dynamically, and capitalize on real-time revenue opportunities. Accordingly, Progress has developed a responsive business prescription, which is a set of methods and tools for ensuring operational Read More

BI on the Go: About Functionality and Level of Satisfaction


We thought it would be useful to take another look at what was revealed in our recent survey on mobile BI regarding what’s important for mobile BI users, and of course, how satisfied they are with the mobile BI solutions they work with. Here we discuss functionality and level of satisfaction, and how they affect mobile BI practices and decision making.

Business Intelligence (BI)


Business intelligence (BI) and performance management applications enable real-time, interactive access, analysis, and manipulation of mission-critical corporate information. These applications provide users with valuable insights into key operating information to quickly identify business problems and opportunities. Users are able to access and leverage vast amounts of information to analyze relationships and understand trends that ultimately support business decisions. These tools prevent the potential loss of knowledge within the enterprise that results from massive information accumulation that is not readily accessible or in a usable form. It is an umbrella term that ties together other closely related data disciplines including data mining, statistical analysis, forecasting, and decision support.
