Michael Doane, the well respected author of the SAP Blue Book and the SAP Green Book, has published an excellent article on his blog about the pressing need for getting the business back in control when it comes to ongoing process improvements. For way too long, there has been excessive focus on improving the technology itself rather than concentrating on how the business gets value from it.

SharePoint is increasingly becoming a de facto standard in the Office environment where information workers feel comfortable. But until now SharePoint has mainly been utilized as an intranet and collaboration platform with limited or no vertical integration into core business systems. Part of the reason is the complexity that is often associated with building solutions that integrate with the ERP system, which is where most of the critical business data reside. In order to expose ERP functionality in SharePoint, developers and business users need easy-to-understand reusable web services. However, enabling these web services if often the bottleneck and solving this… Read more

Last month, the annual SAP TechEd event took place in both Berlin and Las Vegas. It’s the conference where we generally expect to get a bit more substance behind announcements made at SAPPHIRE earlier in the year and obtain a better understanding of SAP’s focus and priorities going forward. One of the key themes at this year’s TechEd has been about extending the reach of SAP. The focus on technologies such as ‘Project Gateway’ and Mobility are strong indications that SAP wants to make its data and functionality more accessible by other platforms. For Winshuttle, this is a strong verification… Read more
