SYSPRO 7 ERP Upgrade Checklist - Evaluating Enterprise Software Needs & Readiness

Posted by Gerry Poe


It has been said “necessity is the mother of invention” which leads us to make enterprise software upgrades with a “wait until there is a problem” mindset. This only makes sense if you think “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it” shows wisdom and foresight.

Waiting for when things are “broke” or an emergency will result in high costs, untrustworthy fixes, and decisions that will have a long-term negative impact. Many issues lie under the surface and unobvious to a less experienced enterprise management team. Cash flow, revenue growth, waste, warehouse efficiencies, the speed of customer service, and inventory accuracy are but a few areas impacted.

Frankenstein software monsters are created when new software is invented and attached to an old system. Systems already broken may not appear to be so.

i.e. Your accounting department is running off of a stand-alone accounting package; your sales team is using a separate CRM, and your inventory is tracked in Access or Excel.

Enterprise Software No More Memory Squeeze - SYSPRO 7

Posted by Gerry Poe


With new functionality in SYSPRO 7 it was time to squeeze some more memory out of our application servers through optimizing the multi-threading capabilities of the SYSPRO WCF Service.SYSPRO 6.1 pushed the boundaries of memory in the SYSPRO e.net Solutions environment, with some customers posting thousands of transactions per minute. Performing all those transactions took a toll on the performance of the SYSPRO application server and in particular the server memory.

The SYSPRO WCF Service is essentially a wrapper around the Encore.dll, the COM (Component Object Model) gateway into SYSPRO data and extensively used by SYSPRO Espresso, SYSPRO Workflow services, SYSPRO Server Reporting as well as third party developers.

Enterprise Technology Performance Benefits of SQL Server

Posted by Gerry Poe


Benefits of SQL Server 

Why is it important to keep your enterprise and server software up to date? Lags in product technology can cost you in unseen ways. What if your enterprise systems could be 20% (or more) faster? What does this do for your bottom line? If your server architectures are running on 32-bit versus 64-bit technology, what does the environment cost the company?  Costs can be measured in terms of speed and enterprise performance. User satisfaction is one factor; however, enterprise throughput is perhaps your key profit benefit.

Here are a few discussion points you may like to have with your technical staff. Given that, technically, the software works on older versions of SQL Server seemingly well; upgrading may take your "enterprise bandwidth" to a higher level, which may be just what was missing.
