When the Best Choice is Best-of-Breed

Sometimes when Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) puts up walls, Best-of-Breed (BoB) opens doors

Over the past 40 years, enterprise resource planning (ERP) systems have evolved in parallel to highly specialized software providers, often referred to as ‘best-of-breed’ (BoB). Where ERPs focused first on financial management and then expanded their capabilities to enable end-to-end business processes, such as order to cash manufacturing and purchase to pay, BoB providers have pushed further on differentiators delivering best-in-class productivity, functional breadth, and ease of use. In the past decade, however, ERPs have made substantial investment in re-platforming their limited use modules into a more sustainable, best-of-breed-like solution. The result is that they are nearing parity on typical business process execution.

In the debate of ERP vs. BoB, there’s no "right" answer. Often, when IT management pushes for ERP, supply chain practitioners prefer the functionality of BoB. JDA understands that every situation and every ERP user’s case is unique, so it pays to keep an open mind in determining which suppliers will best meet the organization’s long-term needs for supply chain execution.

Let us provide you with the facts. Please join industry experts from IDC Retail and Manufacturing Insights, Conagra Brands and JDA to discuss this hot topic, trends and real-world examples facing retailers, manufacturers and third-party logistics providers in the great supply chain debate: ERP or BoB.

In preparation for this session, attendees should ask themselves:

  • Do you want to balance costs and constraints with service goals?
  • Do you want to increase collaboration and gain visibility into your suppliers’ systems?
  • Do you want to more tightly integrate your demand chain, such as your sales, retail or unified commerce functions into your supply chain?
