How to Lead Supply Chain Management Transformations of the Future
"Manufacturers are realizing the value of supply chain flexibility. Some supply chains were better able to adapt to the changes of 2020 better than others. The ones that weren’t able to respond as quickly are finding the need to build flexibility into their supply chains. They need to find better ways to optimize their supply chains to respond to and plan for evolving needs of their global customer bases and supply chains.

Big ERP systems or SCM software may or may not be the answer. Addressing these needs may or may not involve massive technology initiatives such as ERP implementations. Business process improvements or organizational changes are often lower-cost, lower-risk, and higher-value options for manufacturers. We are seeing many manufacturers take a two-phase approach to 1) address short-term needs that provide immediate relief and improvement, and 2) do so within the context of a broader long-term digital strategy and roadmap."

To Change or Not to Change: The Decision to Stay on the Green Screen
"Let’s consider a few reasons why you may not want to replace your legacy system, just yet:

They simply don’t break: Like your Grandad’s 1992 Honda or Swiss watch, the thing will pretty much run forever. The technology behind the old IBM mainframes is simple and sturdy, and as long as it is cleaned and maintained it will work. Cloud ERP systems, on the other hand, are only as reliable as your users’ internet connections.
Your business has not changed: We find many scenarios where companies have been doing the same thing for 30 years, and with good reason. Consider a company that manufactures a niche supply part for an industrial manufacturing segment. It may be specialized enough that the barriers and cost of entry is too great for competitors to chase and they have consistent clientele. With no desire to expand, there may be no reason to change what’s working."

Undercover: “Independent” ERP Software Selection Firms
"We have stressed this time and time again, but “independent” on paper or promises does not mean your selection firm is truly independent. There are vast mechanisms for vendors, implementation partners and other influencers to create bias within an “independent” firm. The most common is financial, but there are also firms who are simply too lazy to keep up with the changing enterprise technology market and rest on the few vendors they have worked with in the past. This is also very common for smaller shops that were formed by consultants that have moved from the Big 5 consulting space."

Self-Serve ERP Software Please
"ERP software has evolved to the point where it can allow a self-serve methodology to work efficiently and potentially save companies money. Algorithms help point clients in the right direction towards ready-to-use pathways. When done right, this is a win-win. The client gets to interact/transact in their preferred way, and the company can redeploy its human assets."

How to Define Your Digital ERP Strategy in 2020
How important is flexibility vs. scale to your business model?
What are you internal IT competencies, and what would you like them to be in the future?
How does this all align with and support your corporate strategy and objectives – or does it?
How big of a change are we really willing to make as part of our transformation?
How much time and money are we willing to invest?
What is our risk tolerance as an organization?
How will organizational change management need to support our answers to these and other questions?"

Apple’s latest foray into the enterprise involves deeper integration with Cisco - by @ron_miller
"Lost in the hubbub of today’s two hour-plus Apple WWDC keynote was an announcement of deep integration between Apple and Cisco in the upcoming release of iOS 10 — yes, you read it correctly, Cisco.

When it comes to enterprise partnerships, IBM has gotten the lion’s share of the attention. More recently, SAP made a high-profile partnership announcement of its own, but last August Apple and Cisco also announced an agreement."

Dissenting views on Windows 10 privacy
No, my dissenting view was not included here. :) It’s also worth noting that since I’ve published my Searchlight column on this topic, it’s already garnered two comments from people who believe the Windows 10 privacy “ruckus” was definitely not overblown: one from a software delivery consultant and the other from a director and producer."

Enough Consumer Coolness: It’s Time to Make a Case for Windows 10 in the Enterprise - by @josheac
"Can Microsoft afford this version of coolness, particularly when it comes to the enterprise? Hardly. This week’s earnings announcement was credited with killing the Dow Industrial Average on Tues., and in most categories there were a lot of disappointing results. But Dynamics, the enterprise little brother of the Microsoft Commercial division, put in a relatively stellar 13 percent growth rate. (Which parts of that were Dynamics CRM, AX, and the rest is never disclosed, unfortunately.)"

The End May Be Nigh For Keyboard, Mouse And Monitor, Thanks To Microsoft
A bit too techy-geeky-upbeat for me, but interesting... "Yesterday, Microsoft was still a sad sack desperately trying to make up for missing out on the mobile hoopla. Today, the formerly boring office tech supplier got its innovation mojo back in one of the most exciting ways possible. "
