Top 5 Enterprise Resource Planning Blogs

Oct 19, 2010 12:00:00 AM


Recently, I read a fantastic post by Oleg Shilovitsky over at BeyondPLM that discussed the role of Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) in redefining Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) in the workplace. This recap will likely sound familiar to regular readers and subscribers as I quickly shared this article in my own post, Do You PLM or PDM?

But Shilovitsky is certainly not the only writer online sharing thought leading content in regards to ERP.  Every day I feel as though I discover a new blog that enlightens me just a bit more as to how others think about this critical discipline.

Until now, I’ve been selfishly keeping many of these blogs myself.  Today, I correct this gaffe as I share my five favorite ERP blogs below:

  1. Beyond PLM – Why just talk about ERP when it’s ERP / PLM integration that truly sets businesses apart? This blog by the aforementioned Shilovitsky contains news and information about ERP, PLM and every last idea in between that is of importance to engineers and manufacturers.

  2. - One of the first names in information regarding ERP is, coincidentally enough, ERP.  Visit the articles section of this site to find everything from reviews of leading ERP software (can’t help but plug here: Microsoft Dynamics AX is #1) to an excellent overview of ERP from author Don Cooper.

  3. ERP Software Blog – Featuring reviews, comparisons and opinions from Microsoft Dynamics experts, this site – updated sometimes several times weekly – is one of my daily go-to sources for ERP information.  Is a lot of the reason for my daily visits, you may ask, the fact that I work with Microsoft Dynamics?  Of course.  But if I didn’t find this information compelling and useful, I simply wouldn’t share it here.

  4. ERP Blog Entries Toolbox – This site grabs all of the blog posts floating around the Internet and compiles them in a chronological list for your convenience.  It’s one of my, until now, secret methods of staying up to date with ERP content.

  5. ERP & More - Another great blog that I’ve shared ERP content from before.  A site dedicated to helping companies select and implement the best ERP software for their companies, Chris Shaul and his team of writers post great content – with my favorite being the counter-intuitive classic, “How Not To Implement and Use ERP Software.”

Let me know what your favorite ERP blogs are by sharing them.

Chief Executive Officer (CEO) For Luciano, being responsible for To-Increase’s global sales and marketing means unleashing the company’s insight, innovation, and creativity to tell our story and help customers achieve their goals. On the road much of the time, he travels the world to meet with customers, understand their challenges and ambitions, and find the most effective ways to help them advance. Luciano develops and mentors our marketing and sales team, and creates strategies to help the To-Increase worldwide partner channel thrive and grow.
Making Customer Needs the Main Business Driver Luciano and his team have daily conversations with the To-Increase research and development organization to bring customers’ requirements and concerns into the road maps and design of our solutions. Luciano brings his insight to the marketing group to make sure the company’s communications resonate with customers and speak directly to their experience.
“I’m awed by customers’ innovative spirit in taking business management technology past its limits and by their generosity in letting us participate and empower them. I hope to transform our organization to become even more customer-centric than we are today. That means making more resources available to spend productive time with both our customers and partners, so we can ensure that we place into customer businesses effective solutions that fit the evolutionary stage of their operation and the way their people and processes work.”
Empowering a Global Channel
Because To-Increase only sells through partners, readying the channel to be successful in helping customers is a business-critical effort. Luciano aims to meet partners where their interests are. Partners who consider the relationship with To-Increase strategic can rely on our industry specialists to work with them as they plan their growth and serve customers. If partners prefer a less collaborative relationship, they still receive the rich To-Increase expertise and resources to ensure they win the business, perform a successful deployment, and retain a satisfied customer. In working with partners and their customers, Luciano brings to bear his experience of many years of creating successful, customer-focused business development and marketing strategies in many of the world’s countries and regions.
Enabling Customer Success in Challenging Business Environments
Looking into the near future, Luciano expects that customers will continue to expect To-Increase to help them make business sense of unfolding trends and technologies. For example, the internet of things (IoT) will thoroughly revolutionize manufacturing, engineering, and supply chains. Big data will be meaningful and valuable when decision-makers can use technology solutions to transform it into actionable business intelligence that supports key roles and business processes. Mobility will help companies become digital enterprises and move business processes forward from any location, at any time. Team To-Increase harnesses innovation to help customers translate the promise of these technologies into business results.
Before his current role, Luciano for several years was one of To-Increase’s global industry directors, responsible for our industry solutions. His experience also spans more than 17 years in IT and manufacturing management roles. These positions took him into various areas at IBM Brazil, serving as product manager for several software development companies, and included working in senior management at a manufacturing organization in the U.S.
Luciano is married with two young children. Away from work, he enjoys participating in a soccer class together with his son and daughter as well as taking relaxing walks in natural environments with his family.
