Although the phrase “next-generation platforms and analytics” can evoke images of machine learning, big data, Hadoop, and the Internet of things, most organizations are somewhere in between the technology vision and today’s reality of BI and dashboards. Next-generation platforms and analytics often mean simply pushing past reports and dashboards to more advanced forms of analytics, such as predictive analytics. Next-generation analytics might move your organization from visualization to big data visualization; from slicing and dicing data to predictive analytics; or to using more than just structured data for analysis.

stages—mobile learning. It describes the potential benefits of mobile learning, addresses the challenges and opportunities that
introducing mobile learning presents, and provides examples from school districts that have already implemented mobile learning programs so we can learn from their best practices. The report also suggests key points to consider as you develop your plans, align your goals, and make decisions regarding mobile learning in your schools.
The demands on IT today are staggering. Most organizations depend on their data to drive everything from product development and sales to communications, operations, and innovation. As a result, IT departments are charged with finding a way to bring new applications online quickly, accommodate massive data growth and complex data analysis, and make data available 24 hours a day, around the world, on any device. The traditional way to deliver data services is with separate infrastructure silos for various applications, processes, and locations, resulting in continually escalating costs for infrastructure and management. These infrastructure silos make it difficult to respond quickly to business opportunities and threats, cause productivity-hindering delays when you need to scale, and drive up operational costs.
When determining which investments to make in their technology infrastructure, organizations will often choose to make no changes at all. While this decision avoids short-term costs and business disruption, it often simply delays the inevitable—even making it worse.
The cost of doing nothing is expensive in the long term. This report—from the independent researchers at Aberdeen Group—outlines the reasons distributors choose not to upgrade enterprise resource planning (ERP) software and cautions against this approach, supplying detailed research that illustrates the benefits of keeping your systems current.

Selecting the right enterprise resource planning (ERP) software often poses a challenge for many businesses in the manufacturing industry. With so many options out there, it’s difficult to break down each potential application and choose the one that’s the best fit for your business.
This Gartner report explains how ERP selection teams can come to a consensus and establish an understanding of all options by jointly populating and prioritizing a hierarchical, weighted ERP evaluation model.
A structured evaluation model helps put all the cards on the table by explaining and justifying to internal stakeholders, external auditors, and vendors how and why an ERP software decision was made.
Read the Gartner report and establish your own ERP evaluation model to see if the Epicor ERP solution is the right fit for your manufacturing business.
More than ever, businesses are considering a cloud solution for their enterprise resource planning (ERP) deployment over an on-premises system. Cloud technology appeals to these companies because updates and fixes occur automatically with little or no effort from internal IT staff, and because cloud-based solutions provide access to real-time data from anywhere. Employees want tools that make it easier for them to complete everyday tasks and make informed decisions that help the business grow.
Aberdeen’s research report, “Top Performers Know It’s Time to Migrate to Cloud ERP: Here’s Why and How,” uncovers the reasons successful companies are choosing cloud over on-premises ERP models. Download this SmartBite for a quick look at the report’s highlights.
