ERP packages on SQL Server 2005

by sgri In reply to ERP packages on SQL Serve ...

Certainly the vendors I'm aware of are all able to give show that their ERP software will run on SQL Server 2005; its not as though there are any major technology breaks between 2003 and 2005. By 'certification' do you mean something official from the vendor or from Microsoft? The following vendors I know have been testing pre-release versions of SQL Server 2005 for some time:
-Microsoft
-SAP
-Syspro

MS ERP any good?

by grephead In reply to MS Great Plains and Axapt ...

We are a JDE/iseries shop. Oracle Fusion is the future for us if we upgrade. We already have MS SQL Server skills, etc.

I'm curious - has anyone migrated from AS400 to an MS "ERP" and lived to tell about it?

Are you an OneWorld customer? In the 'old' days I saw companies migrate from JDE OW on DB2/iSeries to JDE OW on MS SQL - co-existence as it was called. They tried to make it easy but it was still a migration; it is still a serious project with business-critical implications.
IMO you should look at your current skills (MS SQL), see what the issues and costs are to change those skills (to Oracle), look at the business and systems changes for Oracle and for the MS products (also SAP Business One or All-in-One). At the moment there is such strong competition between MS, Oracle and SAP, you could get a good price.

Why 4?

by Bergy In reply to MS Great Plains and Axapt ...

This is from a total novice in the field of what Microsoft is doing in the horizontal application space but why are they adding confusion to the marketplace with four products? Do they plan on merging them into one or two products in the future?

Thanks in advance for any insight.

Actually, M$ went on a buying spree and bought up some ERP packages they thought had potential.

Why 4?

They bought a US ERP company - Great Plains - and got GP and Solomon, and a European ERP company - Navision Damgaard - and got Navision and Axapta. Just like the operating system, Office suite, and the server products, MS builds its business on platforms. ERP is a platform, this time for business.
They will obviously consolidate the current products, and have committed to it, but no one really knows when, what and how.

The answer is yes to your last question, but it won't be for a few years. If you want info about it, Google "project green" this is what Microsoft is calling this all-in-one solution.
