In the Wheelhouse: Navigator Shines in IBM i 7.2

IBM i 7.2 isn't short on cool features by any means, but IBM Navigator for i keeps getting smarter, better, and faster.

steve pitcherWritten by Steve Pitcher

About two weeks ago, I was at the COMMON User Group Conference in Orlando, Florida, where I previewed some of the great stuff coming in IBM i 7.2 and beyond. "And beyond?" you may ask. I'm on the COMMON Americas Advisory Council (CAAC), and we're lucky enough to have great dialogue for two jam-packed days before the COMMON Conference with the IBMers who design and influence the future of IBM i and Power Systems.

Technology Focus: ERP and Supply Chain: A Distinction Without a Difference?

ERP software traditionally covers a lot of corporate territory and is defined by many as including supply chain apps. How valid that distinction might be remains an open question.

john gristWritten by John Ghrist

Consult just about any definition for enterprise resource planning (ERP) software and you're likely to find extensive definitions that declare ERP apps are characterized by the ability to track all corporate functions in a single app. Whether you deal in products or services, ERP is supposed to cover corporate functions as diverse as tracking incoming materials and managing product-manufacturing steps through costing and financials, ultimately extending to customer relationship management and goods transportation. That's not to mention human resources, engineering and product lifecycle management, and even warehousing of finished goods. So when one speaks of ERP, how do we know we mean the same aspects of managing corporate activity?
