Don’t Get Cloud Washed. Get Real Cloud ERP

erp4salesforce Dec 21, 2018 0 Comments
This past August, Diginomica author and industry sage Brian Sommer wrote an important article about the cloud software industry titled “It’s 2018 so why isn’t my ERP vendor multi-tenant?” In the article, Brian cajoled ERP software providers and users of old legacy ERP systems to make the move to multi-tenanted, cloud ERP. I won’t elaborate on all the compelling business, financial and IT reasons to replace your legacy systems with cloud ERP, but if you make the move to the cloud, make sure you get the real thing. So, what is the real thing? The majority of the ERP providers have managed to stall the move to the cloud for many years (while the CRM & HR worlds have embraced it). ERP providers primarily did this to preserve traditional revenue models and...

Top 5 Inventory Mistakes and How to Avoid Them

Days before the solar eclipse of 2017 it became nearly impossible to purchase the special glasses needed to safely observe the event. People rushing from store to store in a frenzy trying to locate the last available pair of glasses, found the stores had just not planned well… they had nothing left. It got so bad that some stores reported customers coming to blows as they fought over the remaining items. To make matters worse, Amazon and Walmart had to let customers know that the glasses they purchased might not be safe. Some brands were not made to the proper specifications and could not be trusted. Walmart reported another problem… the stock they had ordered never arrived. That should not have happened at Walmart, a store known for its amazing supply chain. They manage over 11,000 stores in 27 countries, requiring a technological tour de force that rarely lets...

The Wild West of Ransomware is here…

Ransomware is one of the newest malware threats in the news. (Mal, the Latin root for “bad” or “evil,” forms words like malfunction, maltreat, and malice.) And ransomware is truly bad! An attack will literally hold companies’ user systems hostage until they agree to pay the “ransom” request via Bitcoin or another hard to trace online payment. The FBI is warning it’s on the rise, and not just for single users- businesses, government agencies, law enforcement, healthcare, and academic institutions have all been victims. As UPS recently found out, ransomware is powerful and hard to prevent if you are not prepared. The usual "phishing" or "spoofing" of malware is becoming more common. Hackers are now better at designing corporate brand logos, legal disclaimers and colors to fool the consumer, tricking the clicker to click. But the world of ransomware is taking...

The Internet of Things Comes to Manufacturing

What that means for you now, and in the years ahead

When it comes to manufacturing, IoT developments can certainly impact what you make. The use of IoT-enabled devices – everything from cars to consumer appliances to healthcare equipment – is exploding. Actually, that might be an understatement. According to a Gartner Research report published in February, “8.4 billion connected things will be in use worldwide in 2017, up 31 percent from 2016, and will reach 20.4 billion by 2020. Total spending on endpoints and services will reach almost $2 trillion in 2017.” So, chances are pretty good that, sooner or later, the things you produce will have the ability to communicate with other things, and to share data. The application of IoT technology is spreading that quickly. But no matter...
