With the need to understand operational alignment to enterprise functions, knowing what you think you are doing versus what is actually going on may be very different.

SEAM is a new operational system for SYSPRO. SEAM gives you a composite view of your enterprise execution, devolving what settings have been made. Visually presenting your ERP in “swim lanes” so you can take a real look at what you have enacted within your system.

To understand what we “see” we are doing, we must first have strong knowledge into what the “system” is doing. Then we can take it apart, reverse engineer and rebuild against what we agree is the best practice and utilize the freshest of technologies to help. Sort of like an ERP “WYSIWYG” (want you see is what you get).

Here is a brief yet description of SEAM and SPM and what they can to for your business.

Business Processes Management

Business Processes Management has been taken to a new level in SYSPRO 6.1 with the introduction of SYSPRO Workflow Services (SWS), SYSPRO Process Modeling (SPM) and SYSPRO Enterprise Analysis and Modeling (SEAM).

Built into the SYSPRO product, SYSPRO Workflow Services is a workflow engine which provides the capability of designing and visibly (WYSIWYG) presenting workflow processes, thus allowing greater clarity and transparency of the organization’s business processes. This is based on off-the-shelf Microsoft technology.

SYSPRO Process Modeling (SPM) provides preconfigured and modeled process patterns on which the user can model the company’s unique process requirements. It provides the user with a model-driven architecture supporting management by aligning IT with company strategy, business objectives and sustainability. Furthermore, it provides a transparent view of the users uniquely modeled processes and organizational roles.

SYSPRO Enterprise Analysis and Modeling (SEAM)

Customers increasingly expect a greater level of personalization from the enterprise solutions they buy. They expect control over the look-and-feel of the user interface and want to be able to incorporate their own data and their own special ways of processing their data in SYSPRO.

This need is recognized and has developed an innovative, highly configurable User Interface (UI), tailorable according to users’ needs. SYSPRO 6.1 allows users to modify the behavior of any SYSPRO application and to extend business functionality. The end result is a highly configurable system designed to adapt as business needs evolve. Such changes are not affected by standard software upgrades.

SYSPRO 6.1 also allows users to present information in the graphical format of their choice by using a combination of standards-based functionality. Each user is therefore able to shape their own aesthetically pleasing, easy-to-understand graphical format. We call this tailoring the environment.

SYSPRO Enterprise Analysis and Modeling (SEAM) provides empowered, personalized implementations. It embraces SYSPRO Process Modeling (SPM) (Enterprise Architecting) and can be used to record all discussions and decisions made during sales and implementation. This information can be utilized to configure the SYSPRO application and provide insight into the structuring of the associated data.

Together SPM and SEAM provide “The Single Source of Truth” as well as end-to-end alignment and understanding of all entities in an organization.
