Enterprise Asset Management Systems: Your Manufacturing Organization’s Underrated Superstar


For all you baseball fans living in the US and Canada, you can probably appreciate that we are quickly approaching what is referred to as “the dog days of August.” This is when the pennant races are close, and almost every game has added significance for a team’s chances of making it to the playoffs.

Rather, they are comprised largely of players whose natural athletic ability may not necessarily match that of the few superstars on the team, and who may not be found basking in the limelight, but who consistently work hard and practice on a daily basis. These are the players that, when given the opportunity, can deliver the key play or get the big hit when the game is on the line. This made me think about how in a manufacturing Read More

PeopleSoft Gathers Manufacturing and SCM Wherewithal Part Two: Market Impact


The PeopleSoft-J.D. Edwards merger was, in great part, about retaining the big five (or big four, or big three) seat and the need to be bigger within shrinking market opportunities.

SAPPHIRE 2014: SAP Simplifies


At SAP’s recent SAPPHIRE NOW event, two themes were clear regarding SAP’s focus in the near future—the company’s commitment to simplification, which in SAP terms means to “run simple,” and second, maybe derived from the first idea, to embrace the cloud even more. As ironically as it sounds for the German company, at times accused of doing precisely the opposite with the offering of systems too complex in many aspects, the simplification movement makes sense and accommodates what the industry certainly will require from them and other vendors in the near future.
