2011 ERP Buyer's Guide for Medium and Large Manufacturers


Medium and large manufacturing companies face many challenges that threaten to disrupt their operations, processes, and ultimately the growth of their business.

In addition, these manufacturers must continuously respond to changes to the supply and demand of consumer products—brought about in part by disturbances to the economy, presence of competing products, and changes in the attitudes and needs of consumers—all the while aiming to reduce costs, increase profits, and remain competitive. They must find ways to alleviate redundancy within and quicken the pace of their production cycles, improve visibility throughout the product lifecycle process, and reduce their time to market to maintain a competitive advantage.

This buyer’s guide takes an in-depth look at the major challenges facing medium and large manufacturers today, and how the use of a comprehensive enterprise resource planning (ERP) system can help enterprises address these issues and grow their business.

Business Software Challenges for Medium and Large Manufacturers


Medium and large manufacturing companies face many challenges that threaten to disrupt the operations, processes, and growth of their business. These challenges relate to the use of legacy systems, ensuring legal and regulatory compliance, (re)engineering of business processes, the impact of mergers and acquisitions, off-shoring and re-shoring initiatives, limitations of information technology (IT) infrastructure, and the advent of social media and collaboration.

In addition, these manufacturers must continuously respond to changes to the supply and demand of consumer products—brought about in part by disturbances to the economy, presence of competing products, and changes in the attitudes and needs of consumers—all the while aiming to reduce costs, increase profits, and remain competitive. They must find ways to alleviate redundancy within and quicken the pace of their production cycles, improve visibility throughout the product lifecycle process, and reduce their time to market to maintain a competitive advantage.

To address the challenges in today’s business market, medium and large manufacturers often look to their enterprise resource planning (ERP) system, the proper functioning of which affects all aspects of the business nolens volens. These companies need a robust ERP system that can handle complex operations across departments, the exponential growth of data, etc., optimally integrating all aspects of the business into one coherent system to facilitate the entire manufacturing process

Is BI Really for Everyone?


BI for Large Enterprises

Because of the nature of BI, which traditionally involved the incorporation of expensive high-end software technology, BI software systems were first deployed in large enterprises. To encompass the complete BI life cycle process, it was necessary to have strong budgets, as well as the means and justification for taking financial risks in order to gain a competitive advantage. To achieve this competitive advantage, many large companies were eager for software tools that would enable them to improve their decision-making process. Some software companies responded to this need by accelerating the evolution of classical decision support systems to provide sophisticated analysis tools with high-end software technology. Naturally, the high cost of these types of tools limited their accessibility to large-scale companies (also, the technical requirements for this technology could be met by big corporations only).

In the last four or five years, economic factors as well as the exponential growth of data volumes generated by organizations have forced the development of very sophisticated BI applications, and also expanded the kind of tools a classical BI system normally uses. The BI space is still growing and maturing, and large corporations are still demanding new solutions for new enterprise needs.


BI for SMBs

With recent economic conditions and the information boom, many smaller companies have found themselves requiring analysis tools that enable them to improve their business monitoring and performance improvement strategies. BI solution innovation has cascaded down from large companies to provide adapted and specific services to companies with a need for advanced analytic software tools but with very limited budgets. Recent BI tools have improved the BI life cycle to help organizations of every size and shape to improve analysis, data management, and data visualization tools.
