Don’t Send Your Data to the ERP Cemetery

Reading Time: 2 minutes

The application landscape has changed. With the explosion of SaaS applications and multi-enterprise partnerships, businesses interact and consume applications in new ways. But this doesn’t mean that cloud ERP companies are any better at integration than they’ve been in the past. At best, they are only providing a self-serving solution. Many companies that may be trying cloud applications still need their custom, on-premise ERP applications and still spend too much on them.

Distance Your Competitors

Our approach to making the right data available at the right time is based on a service-oriented architecture, application integration, master data management (MDM), and an in-memory data grid. It’s a solution that will help a company optimize processes, especially when it has multiple ERPs. It also provides the opportunity for differentiation over competitors that use one-size-fits-all cloud apps. This is because our integration platform supplies the centralized, real-time data you need to support accuracy, quality, process consistency, and your customer experience. It gives you the agility to meet compliance, collaboration, and change requirements and move quickly when needed. And it’s flexible, allowing you to differentiate your processes, which rigid SaaS applications do not allow.

Differentiate Even More

And there’s something else. Our Fast Data architecture adds analytics on top of the service-oriented architecture described above, supporting even more differentiation. While you can buy a proprietary in-memory mainframe from these same cloud ERP vendors, it will only show you what has happened in your applications. But, historical information doesn’t tell you what is happening right now, and more often you’re going to need to know.

Our Fast Data architecture shows what has happened, what is happening, and in what context. Further, it blends this event-enabled integration with analytics and event processing to let you act in the moment.
