In the face of increasing globalization, rising customer expectations and greater choices, supply chain management is no longer just about matching supply to customer demands. It’s about differentiating a business and putting customer needs at the forefront of your operations.

The supply chain is fast evolving as a means to deliver superior omnichannel customer experience. A true omnichannel experience should provide a consistent experience no matter what channel a customer or partner uses for purchasing or interacting with a company.

Abstract background, concept of technology

Best Practices. Two words that raise the hair on the back of your neck, and sometimes your blood pressure.

Everyone wants to talk about “best practices.” But sometimes there really is a method to the madness. And when it comes to electronic data interchange (EDI), best practices are more important than with most integration technologies.

The Cloud Revolution in Banking

At a recent banking roundtable hosted in London, participants were presented with two questions:

  • Do you agree that in just three years from now, every new core banking system that goes live will do so in the cloud?
  • And do you agree that any new bank starting now would be mad to go any other way than the cloud?

The answer to both questions — from participants ranging from executives at established banks to founders of banking start-ups — was “yes.”

Banking Is Moving to the Cloud

To appreciate how startling this answer is, remember that, at least in the United States, most core banking systems — the systems that run the daily operations of a bank — are legacy on-premise software systems.

Moving from Systems of Record to Systems of Innovation

Posted by Nathan Gower on March 29th, 2017

As I see organizations of all sizes coming to grips with how to move from a monolithic, legacy ERP single system-of-record to best-of-breed SaaS applications, two common themes emerge.

First, SaaS applications are often purchased without the knowledge of IT. Second, the journey to a cloud-centered environment is virtually impossible with the integration tools of the past, such as enterprise service bus systems and other on-premise middleware.

To move to the cloud, organizations must use equally modern, cloud-based tools to integrate new SaaS applications into their increasingly dynamic hybrid IT environments.
