  • The Order Management Challenge at Today’s Small Businesses

    Order management at today’s small businesses is a sorely underinvested area – whether you’re a retailer, a wholesale distributor, or any other volume order based business. I’m not talking about just the processing of a web order, or shipping a product, or sending out an invoice. I’m talking about optimizing the whole process - from soup to nuts.

  • Data Interoperability Starts in the Cloud

    We recently had an opinion piece on data interoperability in the cloud published by Supply Chain Brain and in this blog post we’d like to expand on a few themes. Whether you are facing a push to globalize your organization, or simply need to cut costs and improve revenues from existing customers, cloud computing is the surest, fastest and most reliable way to achieve the levels of seamless data interoperability required to stay competitive. On-premise software, however global its reach, is ultim...

  • Committing to the Cloud

Put another way by their CEO, Greg Gianforte, part of their goal is having their prospects "throw out their old Siebel deployments and replace them with a multichannel sol...

  • The IMA Survey Results Are in - What the Cloud Means to Finance

    NetSuite's new partnership with the Institute of Management Accountants is a real opportunity to understand how cloud based ERP is perceived by finance organizations, as well as get a clear perspective about some of the concerns (and myths) that still remain. Recently, I moderated a panel discussion of CFO's at businesses that had adopted NetSuite's cloud ERP (rather than choosing to plough the traditional on-premise ERP road). The topic of the webinar was "What the Cloud Means to Finance", and ...

  • Don’t Forget the Human Element of Centralization

    In my professional services role, I see many customers make a common mistake when it comes to cloud computing deployments: they simply forget about the de-centralization of their workforce. The implementation of cloud computing has many benefits over and above traditional software deployments; however, one benefit in particular can turn out to be a “double-edged sword” if not handled correctly—that is the fact that you can deploy the software from one location to the entire universe of end users...

  • Stop the Software Integrations!

    For many years, small businesses have been purchasing “best-of-breed” business systems for every department of their organization and then dealing with the repercussions of those decisions later.  It makes sense at first because this approach solves your most immediate pain, shuts up the most loudly screaming department head for awhile, and seems to be the least complicated way of solving their problems.  So companies end up with one system for sales, another for accounting, maybe Exce...
