SYSPRO Announces New Scalable ERP Release; Empowers Mid-Sized Companies to Embrace New Technologies and Helps Improve Productivity

SYSPRO, a developer of best-of-breed, award-winning enterprise resource planning (ERP) software for on-premise and cloud-based utilization, announced today that SYSPRO 7 will be available for general market release in 2013. SYSPRO 7 is all about adapting to the growth requirements of organizations by giving them the scalability, mobility, and enhanced performance they require in today’s ultra-competitive marketplace. In keeping with SYSPRO’s collaborative approach, the new solution is currently in “community preview” to SYSPRO resellers and partners. The announcement was made here at the company’s Winter 2012 analyst roadshow before 32 leading technology analysts.

For more than 30 years, SYSPRO ERP solutions have been known as the “go-to” solution for global mid-market manufacturing organizations requiring a more targeted, better value choice than currently available from industry giants. With each successive release, SYSPRO has demonstrated to industry veterans that its highly flexible and customizable full suite of ERP solutions provides substantial productivity and business growth advantages.

“SYSPRO, as a privately held company with 100% of our focus on satisfying our customer and reseller community (as opposed to the investment community), ensures that our priorities and people are all about achieving customer satisfaction and delivering a high quality solution at a high-return price point,” explains Phil Duff, CEO, SYSPRO. “We have an enviable track record in the ERP market by providing manufacturing organizations globally with the flexibility and customizability they need to differentiate themselves. The release of SYSPRO 7 is the next evolution of our commitment to helping our clients make their business more agile.

“SYSPRO knows what it takes to survive and thrive, we are able to innovate and deliver the market’s very best ERP solutions, and our newest products like SYPSRO 7 continually reflect the changing times, empowering our customers to simply adopt and embrace those new technologies determined by market trends and conditions,” further explains Duff.

Enhanced User Interface and enterprise-wide customization

Leveraging the company’s award-winning flexibility and customization capabilities delivered previously for user roles in Release 6.1, SYSPRO is now expanding its powerful user interface (UI) capabilities. Styled along the lines of Windows 8, SYSPRO 7 brings active tiles and touch capabilities to its enterprise UI, enabling manufacturers and distributors to easily create tailor-fit environments for their SYSPRO solution that will feel and operate with all the advantages of a home-built solution – without the maintenance and upgrade disadvantages.

To support large-scale customization for businesses, the new UI also enables enterprise-wide modifications and themes. The new industry layouts can be particularly helpful for corporate alignment within specific vertical industries, of which the SYSPRO solution is well known for having additional expertise in the food, medical devices, machinery/equipment, electronics and pharmaceuticals/chemicals markets.

SYSPRO 7 responds to improved productivity requirements

Recognizing the necessity among mid-sized manufacturing and distribution companies for faster performance, capacity and volume requirements, SYSPRO 7 provides powerful processing for higher transactional throughput whilst building on SYSPRO’s commitment to being scalable for small through to large enterprises. SYSPRO 7’s mobile platform will also enable easy, anywhere access, and improved reporting capabilities including remote report generation.

One-click installation

Using a cloud infrastructure, SYSPRO’s Software + Services deploy methodology will enable SYSPRO 7 to be installed easily and remotely with just one click, and allow organizations to run SYSPRO in a WAN/LAN environment efficiently whilst also providing greater control over security and firewall settings across the network and/or Internet.

“For years, one of the strongest recurring statements by our customers has been that SYSPRO solutions seem like they’ve been purpose-built for each customer. With the new SYSPRO 7 capabilities, companies will now be able to gain even more productivity improvements for widest-possible employee use. We are always looking to help our customers achieve the very best bottom line results possible using our system,” concludes Brian Stein, CEO of SYSPRO USA.

SYSPRO ERP CERTIFIED AND VALIDATED BY THIRD-PARTY EVALUATION FIRMS

The SYSPRO solution has received multiple industry and technology validations and awards over its successful 30-year history. Most recently, Technology Evaluation Centers certified the SYSPRO ERP solution in 2012 and praised the company’s support for “real world business processes.”

According to TEC Research Analyst, Aleksey Osintsev, “The SYSPRO software can be a worthy acquisition for small and medium manufacturing and distribution companies operating in multiple vertical industry sectors, and especially those whose business is more complex, requires multistage processes and includes multi-site production, delivery and customer service. SYSPRO ERP can also be a valuable asset for companies that need a highly detailed and dynamic business process modeling instrument in order to precisely understand their business, determine directions for improvement and easily align them together.”

Hardware will never be more valuable than on the day it hits your loading dock. Each day new servers are not deployed to production the business is losing money. While Moore’s Law is typically cited to explain the exponential density growth of chips, a critical consequence of this is rapid depreciation of servers. The hardware for clustered systems (e.g., Hadoop, OpenStack) tends to be significant capital expenses. In his session at 15th Cloud Expo, Mason Katz, CTO and co-founder of StackIQ, to discuss how infrastructure teams should be aware of the capitalization and depreciation model of these expenses to fully understand when and where automation is critical.
Over the last few years the healthcare ecosystem has revolved around innovations in Electronic Health Record (HER) based systems. This evolution has helped us achieve much desired interoperability. Now the focus is shifting to other equally important aspects – scalability and performance. While applying cloud computing environments to the EHR systems, a special consideration needs to be given to the cloud enablement of Veterans Health Information Systems and Technology Architecture (VistA), i.e., the largest single medical system in the United States.

Most of today’s hardware manufacturers are building servers with at least one SATA Port, but not every systems engineer utilizes them. This is considered a loss in the game of maximizing potential storage space in a fixed unit. The SATADOM Series was created by Innodisk as a high-performance, small form factor boot drive with low power consumption to be plugged into the unused SATA port on your server board as an alternative to hard drive or USB boot-up. Built for 1U systems, this powerful device is smaller than a one dollar coin, and frees up otherwise dead space on your motherboard. To meet the requirements of tomorrow’s cloud hardware, Innodisk invested internal R&D resources to develop our SATA III series of products. The SATA III SATADOM boasts 500/180MBs R/W Speeds respectively, or double R/W Speed of SATA II products.
As more applications and services move "to the cloud" (public or on-premise) cloud environments are increasingly adopting and building out traditional enterprise features. This in turn is enabling and encouraging cloud adoption from enterprise users. In many ways the definition is blurring as features like continuous operation, geo-distribution or on-demand capacity become the norm. NuoDB is involved in both building enterprise software and using enterprise cloud capabilities. In his session at 15th Cloud Expo, Seth Proctor, CTO at NuoDB, Inc., will discuss the experiences from building, deploying and using enterprise services and suggest some ways to approach moving enterprise applications into a cloud model.
