Oracle Cloud ERP: The Sleeping Giant?
"While nearly ever ERP vendor in the market is promoting “cloud” offerings to the point of exertion, many of the industry leaders including SAP S/4HANA and Microsoft Dynamics 365 are still struggling to migrate their full legacy functionality to the cloud. Oracle is no different in working to bring E-Business Suite capability into its cloud offering. However, where Oracle is stepping up their game is in the development and integration of emerging technologies into their ERP offering."

NetSuite on Oracle Cloud Infrastructure: What It Means for Customers
"But now, at NetSuite’s customer conference last month, NetSuite has announced its plans to migrate its application suite to OCI.

The fact that Oracle now owns NetSuite does not take away from the significance of this announcement. Although NetSuite has always been built on Oracle’s database, it has only been using the database for physical storage. (Salesforce takes a similar approach.) NetSuite built all of its administration and provisioning tools, including multitenant management, on top of the database. Although Oracle is currently in process of moving its Fusion customers to OCI, the move by NetSuite is a much larger workload—with tens of thousands of customer instances to migrate. If NetSuite and Oracle can accomplish this migration—and NetSuite executives repeatedly assured us that it will—it will be a major proof case establishing OCI as a platform for cloud ISVs."

Manufacturing Is a Huge Opportunity for Cloud ERP - by @fscavo
"Today, there is no manufacturing cloud ERP provider with the size or scale of Salesforce.com or Workday. Contrary to popular belief, this is not because the opportunity is small. Manufacturing still comprises a large percentage of US companies and is an enormous opportunity for cloud ERP. This post outlines the challenges that cloud ERP providers face and what it will take for them to dominate the market for manufacturing systems."

Software Vendor Implementation Services Not Always Best Choice - by @fscavo
"Choosing the wrong system will lead to almost certain failure. But choosing the wrong implementation team can also kill project success, even if it is with the right system. And, interestingly, many times your software vendor's professional services team is not the best choice. This post outlines the reasons why."

Three Things to Like about Acumatica - by @fscavo
"Since the turn of the century, there has been an ongoing ERP consolidation trend, with Oracle, Infor, Epicor, and others buying up smaller ERP providers. During this same period, newer ERP vendors have risen up to challenge the incumbents. Nearly all of the new entrants are cloud ERP systems."

Three Things to Like about Acumatica - by @fscavo
"Customers of multi-tenant cloud ERP providers sometimes face a problem with resource consumption. Because one customer consuming an excessive amount of computing resources can degrade performance for other customers on the same node, the provider has to put limits on how much any single customer can consume. In many cases, the provider’s contract will call for a surcharge in periods when consumption exceeds some limit. Acumatica’s approach solves this problem by allowing customers who anticipate low levels of usage to choose a deployment option that is most cost-effective while allowing customers who demand higher performance to choose the second or third option, at a higher price point. Customers, of course, can start with one deployment option and move to another. Those few customers that desire an on-premises deployment or hosting by a service provider will need to choose the third option, the fully dedicated option."

New Customer-Facing Systems Extend the Reach of Small, Midsize Businesses - via @fscavo
"We recently wrote how cloud systems are leveling the playing field for SMBs in leveraging big data analytics. In the same way, this new generation of customer-facing systems promises to give SMBs the tools they need to compete with larger organizations for customers internationally through multiple channels.

One word of warning is due, however. Because these new systems are built from the ground up, they may not have all the capabilities that SMBs may need to do business internationally. For all the problems with legacy systems, many of them have been developed over many years and have fairly mature functionality, although they typically lack the ease-of-use that this new generation of systems promise."

HCM Fertile Ground for Data Science - by @fscavo
"Admittedly, many of these questions raise the specter of “Big Brother,” and employees may push back if they begin to feel as if they are being profiled. But with the stakes so high, can any business leader afford to not consider tools that, properly applied, could mitigate significant risks to the business?

In private conversations, some HCM providers (not necessarily the six highlighted earlier) indicate that they are thinking about how they can address these types of issues. They may not be talking about them publicly, but new applications of data science for HCM may be coming soon."

Big Data Analytics Not Just for the Big Guys
"Based on our experience as consumers, it is evident that these “big guys” know how to use “big data.” But what about small to midsize companies? Like large companies, they also need to better understand the market, target their best prospects, and better serve their customers. However, in the past, they have not had the computing resources to gather and store petabytes of data, nor the internal skills to analyze all that data."

Oracle Acquisition of NetSuite Is a Mixed Bag - by @fscavo
"Oracle took another step in its strategy of growth by acquisition by announcing a bid for NetSuite. But apart from helping Oracle in its race with Salesforce.com to get to $10 billion in cloud revenues, what are the benefits of the deal to Oracle? How does it help NetSuite, and what does it mean to the broader marketplace? Looking at the big picture, there are certainly benefits, but there are also several concerns."

The Role of Fear in ERP Implementation - by @fscavo
"But the one thing that worried this group the most was that they wouldn’t have the resources to get the implementation finished while still taking care of their regular duties. Would they have the bandwidth? We had told them that they had to put their best people on this project, but could they afford to do that? Where would they get additional personnel? The top executive in the room spoke up and assured the group that the company was ready to spend the money to make those resources available."

Oracle v. Rimini Street Verdict Clarifies Ground Rules for Third-Party Maintenance - by @fscavo
"Earlier this month, the jury reached its verdict in the Oracle v. Rimini Street lawsuit, a closely-watched case involving third-party maintenance (3PM) in the enterprise software industry. Assuming the jury’s verdict stands up against potential appeals, the case sets an important precedent for how 3PM providers should operate to ensure they are not violating the intellectual property rights of the software owners. We expect customer use of third-party maintenance will increase as a result of this verdict."

Kenandy: Against the Tide of Two-Tier ERP - by @fscavo
"Still, no ERP system is a fit for every company. Kenandy is a relatively young ERP provider, although its choice of the Salesforce platform is allowing it to rapidly build out new functionality. Nevertheless, new prospects may find gaps between their business needs and what Kenandy can currently offer out of the box.
Interestingly, in our discussions with Kenandy customers, we find that some of them actually wanted this. Kenandy’s relative youth allows new customers to strongly influence its product roadmap and be a primary source of requirements."

Beyond Deployment Options: SaaS as a Business Model - by @fscavo
"But software as a service is more than just another deployment option, another way to consume software. SaaS is a business model. SaaS not only affects the product: it should drive the nature of how the provide does business, from how the product is developed and maintained to how it is sold, implemented, and supported. It should permeate the very culture of the provider’s organization."

Infor ERP Customers and the UpgradeX Roadmap - by @fscavo
"Infor is doing interesting work in its CloudSuite initiative to offer industry-specific solutions deployed on the cloud. But it faces two challenges. First, it must convince a greater share of its 70,000 customers to upgrade to its latest versions. Then, if it does convince them, Infor will need to have the implementation resources trained and available to support those customer migrations. This post sums up the status of these initiatives with recommendations for Infor customers. "

System Selection and the Future of Enterprise Software - by @stepheneronan
"I fully agree with Gartner's view on this topic and it meshes with my experience in many of my full-lifecycle enterprise software implementations. For a few clients, the monolithic model has worked reasonably well, but for many - particularly in software, high-tech, services, and media - monolithic ERP has been a clumsy fit for substantial pieces of their business."
