SYSPRO ERP Today Is Future Perfect

SYSPRO, a developer of best-of-breed, award-winning enterprise resource planning (ERP) software for on-premise and cloud-based utilization, today announced that according to statements made by Michael Krigsman, CEO of Asuret, Inc., in a recently published Inside-ERP brief, SYSPRO today contains all the characteristics that will be offered by ERP solution providers in two years. In “Future Tech: Where Will ERP Be in 2 Years?” Krigsman states that “ERP of the future promises to be simplified, more accessible and easier to use…” He goes on to say that “. . . ERP must become more simplified, both in terms of the deployment of the system and aligning it with an organization’s business processes.”

According to Joey Benadretti, President, SYSPRO USA, SYSPRO was the first ERP provider to develop an ERP implementation methodology that not only speeds the implementation process, but which also enables organizations to streamline their business processes during the implementation of SYSPRO ERP. “The reasons so many ERP implementations fail is that ERP software providers try to lay the new software over existing business processes rather than streamlining them to enhance operational functionalities,” he says, adding that the SYSPRO Implementation Methodology is the winner of numerous awards. “Furthermore,” he says, “SYSPRO Business Process Modeling also enables companies to reconfigure their business processes when new functionalities are required to maximize efficiencies.”

In the Inside-ERP article, Krigsman predicts, “. . . the user experience will quickly change, too, to both simplify ERP and make it easier to use. User interfaces (UIs) are likely to also become more finely grained and tailored to user roles and user groups….”

Benadretti notes that SYSPRO was the first ERP solution provider to offer additional ways to customize the SYSPRO software User Interface to further efficiency and security. “The SYSPRO Fluid Interface Design, which was introduced more than three years ago, gives users unprecedented customization and control abilities over virtually every aspect of the desktop user interface. In addition, SYSPRO also offers the ability for system administrators to control the customization of the SYSPRO User Interface (UI) by applying roles to operators. Layouts can be designed per role and apply to any docking pane, entry or display form, list view, data grid and SYSPRO Office Integration (SOI) search results.”

Looking to two years in the future, Krigsman notes, “Vendors will continue to produce more advanced analytics tools that will help companies have better, faster access to the increasingly vast amounts of data that ERP systems collect.”

Benadretti points to SYSPRO’s embrace of .NET and Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) to extend the functionality of SYSPRO ERP.

A final point that Krigsman sees for the future is “the greening of ERP.”

According to Benadretti, SYSPRO’s foray into “green” occurred more than ten years ago when the company developed the SYSPRO Material Yield System to enable SYSPRO software users dealing in cut-shapes to return metal, pipe and tube scraps to inventories, saving them from landfills and also allowing the companies to profit by using the scraps to fill future orders. SYSPRO was cited by the Governor of the State of California for the Material Yield System.

Most recently, SYSPRO developed SYSPRO Project Green Enable, establishing a series of “green” programs across three dimensions: Energy Efficiency; Waste Reduction; Recyclable/Re-Use of Resources and Energy Efficiency. SYSPRO Energy Efficiency initiatives are among the industry’s most cost-saving.

Benadretti points to the numerous awards SYSPRO has received for “green” enabling SYSPRO ERP, the most recent being designation as a member of OC Metro Magazine’s Green Team, a compilation of 25 Orange County, Calif.-located business organizations that have developed “green” practices.

At its core DevOps is all about collaboration. The lines of communication must be opened and it takes some effort to ensure that they stay that way. It’s easy to pay lip service to trends and talk about implementing new methodologies, but without action, real benefits cannot be realized. Success requires planning, advocates empowered to effect change, and, of course, the right tooling. To bring about a cultural shift it’s important to share challenges. In simple terms, ensuring that everyone k...
Is advanced scheduling in Kubernetes achievable?Yes, however, how do you properly accommodate every real-life scenario that a Kubernetes user might encounter? How do you leverage advanced scheduling techniques to shape and describe each scenario in easy-to-use rules and configurations? In his session at @DevOpsSummit at 21st Cloud Expo, Oleg Chunikhin, CTO at Kublr, answered these questions and demonstrated techniques for implementing advanced scheduling. For example, using spot instances and co...
Today most companies are adopting or evaluating container technology - Docker in particular - to speed up application deployment, drive down cost, ease management and make application delivery more flexible overall. As with most new architectures, this dream takes significant work to become a reality. Even when you do get your application componentized enough and packaged properly, there are still challenges for DevOps teams to making the shift to continuous delivery and achieving that reducti...
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, discussed why containers should be paired with new architectural practices such as microservices rathe...
With the rise of Docker, Kubernetes, and other container technologies, the growth of microservices has skyrocketed among dev teams looking to innovate on a faster release cycle. This has enabled teams to finally realize their DevOps goals to ship and iterate quickly in a continuous delivery model. Why containers are growing in popularity is no surprise — they’re extremely easy to spin up or down, but come with an unforeseen issue. However, without the right foresight, DevOps and IT teams may lo...
Kubernetes is a new and revolutionary open-sourced system for managing containers across multiple hosts in a cluster. Ansible is a simple IT automation tool for just about any requirement for reproducible environments. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at 18th Cloud Expo, Patrick Galbraith, a principal engineer at HPE, will discuss how to build a fully functional Kubernetes cluster on a number of virtual machines or bare-metal hosts. Also included will be a brief demonstration of running a Galer...
DevOps is under attack because developers don’t want to mess with infrastructure. They will happily own their code into production, but want to use platforms instead of raw automation. That’s changing the landscape that we understand as DevOps with both architecture concepts (CloudNative) and process redefinition (SRE). Rob Hirschfeld’s recent work in Kubernetes operations has led to the conclusion that containers and related platforms have changed the way we should be thinking about DevOps and...

"There is a huge interest in Kubernetes. People are now starting to use Kubernetes and implement it," stated Sebastian Scheele, co-founder of Loodse, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at DevOps at 19th Cloud Expo, held November 1-3, 2016, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
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...
