Failing organic growth Oracle has tied up with Larry's "other" company,
sometime competitor NetSuite, one of the first SaaS companies, predating even
salesforce.com by a year thanks to Larry's nickel.
NetSuite's specialty is selling cloud-ified ERP to SMBs. By the end of the
year, the widgetry will be integrated with Oracle's human capital management
(HCM) software used to manage employees in a combination clearly aimed at
Oracle's new nemesis Workday, started by the folks driven out of PeopleSoft
when Oracle bought the place out from under them.
Deloitte Consulting LLP also has a piece of the action. It's going to start a
practice to help customers deploy the widgetry.
With the move, Oracle, which usually goes after large companies with its own
ERP wares on large companies, has to a certain extent taken out NetSuite as a
competitor and gets new representation with ... (more)
I received a request to start a discussion about running SAP Business One on
a Mac. Quite serendipitous, given that I use Business One every day on my Mac
G5 with a 27" Cinema Display. It's okay to be jealous, I'm used to it.
Needless to say, it is awesome. Orchestra even customizes the SAP B1 icon to
be a Mac icon for B1. It bounces in the dock when launched and everything.

In today's economy everyone is trying to do more with less. Economic
indicators tell us that manufacturing is beginning to pick up, but we've
heard that before. Business analysts are predicting an upturn in overall
business in the coming months. Unemployment rates are lower than they've been
in years. That's all good news, but none of us are ready to return to the
days of unmonitored spending or extravagant hiring practices.
For many businesses, the largest asset after personnel is inventory. For many
of those same businesses, potentially their largest expense after payroll is
the cost of the inventory that sits on the warehouse floor. In the face of
economic challenges some very smart people have developed various methods to
help minimize the impact of assets tied up in unused inventory and wasted
warehouse space. You've undoubtedly seen the acronyms and come across... (more)
When you examine the methodologies being used for implementing ERP systems,
it makes you wonder whether these complex, costly and resource consuming
projects are being framed correctly for success. Microsoft’s Sure Step for
example, primarily frames the project as a technology/software delivery
project. Another popular framing of ERP implementation is as a change
management project that focuses on organizational risks and impacts. These
are both valid – there is clearly a technology dimension and a change
dimension to every ERP implementation. But another way to frame ERP
implementation projects is as a kind of ‘startup’ project, which requires
recognition of an innovation dimension.
In the introduction to their book Lean Innovation, Sonnenberg and Sehested
emphasize the guiding principle of ‘lean’, namely the elimination of
waste or non value-adding processes and... (more)

The gap is widening between legacy ERP and cloud ERP as traditional
on-premise tools are shifting toward delivery of applications over the
Internet. The sudden growth spurt for ERP in the cloud is largely driven by
the vast cost savings resulting from the increased productivity and
efficiency that characterize the move to web-based business applications.
Industry insiders have recently begun to draw attention to the upsurge in new
ERP developers as an indication that the competitive landscape has shifted,
and that long established players will need to adapt in order to maintain
their market share in the years ahead.
As a result, many long established entities like Microsoft and SAP have been
seen ramping up their cloud offerings as they prepare to take on the new
players in the space. Whether or not these current leaders will be able to
maintain their positions at ... (more)
