Well, I wanted to get in one more highlight before #CONV11, this one is a recent paper published by R "Ray" Wang, of the Constellation Research Group.: Best Practices: The Case For Two-Tier ERP Deployments
From the Executive Summary:
"Organizations continue to face an onslaught of business requirements that their existing ERP systems can no longer address. Stuck in the past century, these ERP systems are expensive to run, difficult to upgrade, and impossible to modify for today’s fast changing requirements. Two-tier ERP has emerged as a strategy to enable legacy optimization while reinvigorating the organization’s existing ERP systems. Abundant case studies show success with four common two-tier ERP strategies.
While today’s two-tier strategies mostly involve on-premises solutions, cloud based solutions will gain favor over the next 18 to 24 months because of their rapid deployment capabilities, constant innovation qualities, and subscription pricing. Whether SaaS, on-premises, or hybrid, a two-tier ERP strategy will reduce costs, meet new business requirements, and provide better business value."
Ray will be at CONV11 covering the event, along with all kinds of other Analyst. Mr. Wang does great work covering the world of business software, and anyone thinking about using the Two-Tier approach for Microsoft Dynamics AX should really take a look into purchasing this paper, for his valued insights.
Well that's it, see you all at Convergence!
