Universal Alloy Corporation Europe to Implement Epicor

Next-Generation Epicor ERP Solution to Support Business Processes in Romanian Facility

DUBLIN, CA and BUCHAREST, ROMANIA -- (Marketwire) -- 03/13/12 -- Epicor Software Corporation, a global leader in business software solutions for manufacturing, distribution, retail and services organizations, today announced that the Epicor® next-generation enterprise resource planning (ERP) solution has been selected for Universal Alloy Corporation Europe (UACE), an international leader in production of aerospace extrusions. Based in Canton, Georgia, USA, Universal Alloy Corporation (UAC), a company of Montana Tech Components, chose Epicor to support its business processes in its UACE Greenfield facility based in Dumbravita, Romania.

UACE provides the highest value casting, heat treatment, extrusions, and complex extruded shapes, profiles, detailed part machining, surface treatment, and assembly to their customers, including Airbus, Boeing, and Bombardier, from one location with one supply chain. The company chose Epicor because of its best business practices, as well as its ease of use and native adaptability to their requirements.

"Our company will benefit greatly from the Epicor system's ease of use, intuitive design and great clarity, accuracy and efficiency of information, all housed in one system," said Dr. Jon Kevin Loebbaka, president for UACE and vice president, worldwide project management for UAC. "In terms of the value received, we know that one of our sister enterprises run a tier one solution that just isn't a good fit for medium-sized businesses. Given the breadth of functionality Epicor offers, we feel that we will be getting a better return on our investment."

UAC is recognized by all major aircraft manufacturers and their subcontractors as the manufacturer of choice for superior quality aerospace components. UAC and UACE furnish the most difficult extruded shapes with the highest quality standards and the tightest dimensional tolerances available, with the goal to provide 100% on-time delivery while maintaining the shortest lead times in the industry. As part of a global alliance, UAC guarantees its customers first-class service anywhere around the world, providing fully-integrated operations with mills in Anaheim, California; Canton, Georgia; Menziken, Switzerland; and Dumbravita, Romania.

Because UAC operates in the high-tech industry, they also chose Epicor due to the solution meeting its critical business requirements of high quality and traceability. The Epicor next-generation ERP system is built entirely on a service-oriented architecture (SOA), which also means that it's agile and easily adapts to an organization's business processes, resulting in a solution that can adjust and grow with a business as it expands.

"This project is a prime example of how Epicor ERP solutions support the expansion of global aerospace and defense manufacturers into new markets," said Emil Bobocea, regional sales director for Epicor. "Epicor will streamline UAC's operations by integrating all its business processes into one end-to-end enterprise management system, enabling them to provide superior products and services to their customers."

The full integration of data collected throughout sales, customer service, logistics and production will give UAC's managers and employees the opportunity to focus on growth objectives and serving customers' unique needs. Loebbaka concluded, "As part of the Epicor implementation, we are also planning on transitioning this implementation back to our North American facilities as we begin machining at UAC."

Microservices Articles
Modern software design has fundamentally changed how we manage applications, causing many to turn to containers as the new virtual machine for resource management. As container adoption grows beyond stateless applications to stateful workloads, the need for persistent storage is foundational - something customers routinely cite as a top pain point. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at 21st Cloud Expo, Bill Borsari, Head of Systems Engineering at Datera, explored how organizations can reap the bene...
"NetApp's vision is how we help organizations manage data - delivering the right data in the right place, in the right time, to the people who need it, and doing it agnostic to what the platform is," explained Josh Atwell, Developer Advocate for NetApp, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at 20th Cloud Expo, held June 6-8, 2017, at the Javits Center in New York City, NY.
The Jevons Paradox suggests that when technological advances increase efficiency of a resource, it results in an overall increase in consumption. Writing on the increased use of coal as a result of technological improvements, 19th-century economist William Stanley Jevons found that these improvements led to the development of new ways to utilize coal. In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Mark Thiele, Chief Strategy Officer for Apcera, compared the Jevons Paradox to modern-day enterprise IT, examin...
In his session at 20th Cloud Expo, Mike Johnston, an infrastructure engineer at Supergiant.io, discussed how to use Kubernetes to set up a SaaS infrastructure for your business.

He has experience with brick and mortar data centers as well as cloud providers like Digital Ocean, Amazon Web Services, and Rackspace. H...
Skeuomorphism usually means retaining existing design cues in something new that doesn’t actually need them. However, the concept of skeuomorphism can be thought of as relating more broadly to applying existing patterns to new technologies that, in fact, cry out for new approaches. In his session at DevOps Summit, Gordon Haff, Senior Cloud Strategy Marketing and Evangelism Manager at Red Hat, will discuss why containers should be paired with new architectural practices such as microservices ra...
In his session at 20th Cloud Expo, Scott Davis, CTO of Embotics, discussed how automation can provide the dynamic management required to cost-effectively deliver microservices and container solutions at scale. He also discussed how flexible automation is the key to effectively bridging and seamlessly coordinating both IT and developer needs for component orchestration across disparate clouds – an increasingly important requirement at today’s multi-cloud enterprise.
The Software Defined Data Center (SDDC), which enables organizations to seamlessly run in a hybrid cloud model (public + private cloud), is here to stay. IDC estimates that the software-defined networking market will be valued at $3.7 billion by 2016. Security is a key component and benefit of the SDDC, and offers an opportunity to build security 'from the ground up' and weave it into the environment from day one. In his session at 16th Cloud Expo, Reuven Harrison, CTO and Co-Founder of Tufin, ...
DevOps is often described as a combination of technology and culture. Without both, DevOps isn't complete. However, applying the culture to outdated technology is a recipe for disaster; as response times grow and connections between teams are delayed by technology, the culture will die. A Nutanix Enterprise Cloud has many benefits that provide the needed base for a true DevOps paradigm. In their Day 3 Keynote at 20th Cloud Expo, Chris Brown, a Solutions Marketing Manager at Nutanix, and Mark Lav...
Many organizations are now looking to DevOps maturity models to gauge their DevOps adoption and compare their maturity to their peers. However, as enterprise organizations rush to adopt DevOps, moving past experimentation to embrace it at scale, they are in danger of falling into the trap that they have fallen into time and time again. Unfortunately, we've seen this movie before, and we know how it ends: badly.
TCP (Transmission Control Protocol) is a common and reliable transmission protocol on the Internet. TCP was introduced in the 70s by Stanford University for US Defense to establish connectivity between distributed systems to maintain a backup of defense information. At the time, TCP was introduced to communicate amongst a selected set of devices for a smaller dataset over shorter distances. As the Internet evolved, however, the number of applications and users, and the types of data accessed and...
