Keeping Your ERP Systems Secure in the Cybercriminal World [cached]

Craig Downing, Senior Product Marketing Director, Epicor

The newest release of Epicor Cash Collect, developed by Epicor Alliance Partner e2b teknologies, is delivered in a true multi-tenant hosted business application model on the Microsoft Azure cloud platform and is available for a low monthly subscription. "The release of Epicor Cash Collect in a cloud-based option further demonstrates our commitment to cloud business applications that provide companies with the choice and flexibility to meet their needs," said Craig Downing, senior director, global cloud marketing, Epicor.

The United States and Western Europe have been at the forefront of helping smaller companies go global using the cloud, but Asia appears to be catching up, said Craig Downing, senior product marketing director in charge of global cloud strategy for San Diego, California-based Epicor Software.
Epicor is considered a second-tier cloud services provider; such providers tend to work directly with customers rather than through channel partners. Asia has lagged, Downing said, because some Asian governments have resisted efforts by Western technology companies to build the technical infrastructure that supports cloud computing in their jurisdictions, due to concerns about transferring data across national boundaries. "But now we are starting to see them start using cloud," Downing said. Cloud computing is advancing for smaller Asian companies on two major fronts. First, many Asian companies are suppliers to large Western companies that insist on doing business via the cloud. "The Asian companies are participating as part of the supply chain of larger customers embracing cloud systems," Downing said. "If you are a vendor to Raytheon or Boeing or Bosch, you're being pulled into that customer's supply chain and you're interacting directly with their cloud-based ERP systems." On a second path, Asian subsidiaries of Western companies are creating locally based cloud operations that link to their parent companies' global cloud-based systems. "Their operations in Thailand or Vietnam don't necessarily have the same level of complexity or scale requirements" to justify adopting large, expensive systems from major cloud providers, Downing said.

8 Must-Have Two-Tier ERP Features - Enterprise Apps Today [cached]

"You have to deal with vendors who have experience working with one another, and understand the criticality of your two-tier system," said Craig Downing, senior director of Product Marketing at Epicor.
"Make sure they aren't going to simply say 'it's the other guy's problem to ensure this works.'" Common ERP Data Structures Support for common processes and data structures is another vital aspect of two-tier ERP. If you are forced to accommodate limitations in part numbers, GL accounts or customer details in mapping data between the two systems, you're already being asked to make too many compromises and are likely to find "hidden" sacrifices to be even more limiting, Downing said. "Companies need to decide where they sit on the timeliness needed from an integration process," Downing said.

11 Cloud ERP Solutions to Consider - Enterprise Apps Today [cached]

"Some companies view a two-tier ERP strategy as an audition to see if they even need their legacy ERP platform," said Craig Downing, senior director of Product Marketing, Epicor.
"Businesses are starting to look at tradeoffs of ERP systems and evaluating whether a system purchased 10 years ago has everything they need to run their business today." He thinks many businesses venture into the cloud in a two-tier ERP set-up to make sure their deployment is cost effective and provides what they need before jettisoning on-premise software in favor of all-cloud ERP software. "We are seeing less urgency for bridging the cloud and on-premises systems as companies continue to be anxious to redesign many of their enterprise workloads to leverage the pervasiveness of cloud- deployed solutions," he said.
