US survey says shoppers want less automation, more human interaction with customer service
"The report revealed that, despite misconceptions of robots taking over, consumers still want human interaction while navigating digital assets. What’s more, they don’t expect, nor want technology to replace real people. It’s true consumers are open-minded about using technology like chatbots that save time and make life easier. But they still trust humans to help solve more complex problems and make experiences such as online shopping, filling a prescription or making a bank deposit — more enjoyable."

Can Deltek be the Easy Button for Project-Based Business?
"We asked our 2018 survey participants to assess the level of risk their industries faced in terms of the potential for disruption (Figure 1). While all but 10% acknowledged some level of risk, the majority (84%) feel the risk is low to medium rather than high or imminent. Yet we feel compelled to ask the question: How do you think the taxi industry would have answered this question on the eve of the launch of Uber? Do you think the hotel industry anticipated Airbnb? Did Block Buster foresee the devastating impact Netflix would have on its business?"

"Given how many agreements Oracle, SAP, Salesforce and other top-tier suppliers negotiate every year, it is no wonder they get anxious when it comes time to hammer out the final details of contract documents and statements of work.

10 Ways To Improve Cloud ERP With AI And Machine Learning
"Cloud ERP platforms need to create and strengthen a self-learning knowledge system that orchestrates AI and machine learning from the shop floor to the top floor and across supplier networks. Having a cloud-based infrastructure that integrates core ERP Web Services, apps, and real-time monitoring to deliver a steady stream of data to AI and machine learning algorithms accelerates how quickly the entire system learns. The Cloud ERP platform integration roadmap needs to include APIs and Web Services to connect with the many suppliers and buyer systems outside the walls of a manufacturer while integrating with legacy ERP systems to aggregate and analyze the decades of data they have generated."

NetSuite on Oracle Cloud Infrastructure: What It Means for Customers
"But now, at NetSuite’s customer conference last month, NetSuite has announced its plans to migrate its application suite to OCI.

The fact that Oracle now owns NetSuite does not take away from the significance of this announcement. Although NetSuite has always been built on Oracle’s database, it has only been using the database for physical storage. (Salesforce takes a similar approach.) NetSuite built all of its administration and provisioning tools, including multitenant management, on top of the database. Although Oracle is currently in process of moving its Fusion customers to OCI, the move by NetSuite is a much larger workload—with tens of thousands of customer instances to migrate. If NetSuite and Oracle can accomplish this migration—and NetSuite executives repeatedly assured us that it will—it will be a major proof case establishing OCI as a platform for cloud ISVs."

Event Report - NetSuite SuiteWorld 2018 - NetSuite goes Global and Oracle
"On the concern side, NetSuite may not be moving fast enough yet. It needs to move to 30, then 50 supported countries fast, to e.g. counter and lead vis a vis other large ERP vendors SMB products (starts with an S…). And while I always like when vendors go back and fix something (the Commerce offering), it does not make sense for NetSuite to play in the space, while e.g. not having a full HCM Suite, no clear CRM strategy , some holes in SCM and so on. So, NetSuite not only needs to move fast, but also smart, which the vendor is doing on most aspects, but needs to do more. For instance, NetSuite needs to announce the next 10 or better 20 target countries for its Globalization / Localization plans, so customers can plan their roll outs accordingly."

10 Ways Machine Learning Is Revolutionizing Manufacturing In 2018
"Improving semiconductor manufacturing yields up to 30%, reducing scrap rates, and optimizing fab operations are is achievable with machine learning. Attaining up to a 30% reduction in yield detraction in semiconductor manufacturing, reducing scrap rates based on machine learning-based root-cause analysis and reducing testing costs using AI optimization are the top three areas where machine learning will improve semiconductor manufacturing. McKinsey also found that AI-enhanced predictive maintenance of industrial equipment will generate a 10% reduction in annual maintenance costs, up to a 20% downtime reduction and 25% reduction in inspection costs.

"One of the most common “outs” for a systems integrator on a fixed price contract is that the users were not ready to accept the system. The bottom line is that users can’t be blamed if they don’t know what is coming. PMO’s should be collaborating with line management to secure resources for data preparation, testing, training, support, and implementation. PMO’s should also be proactively engaging legacy application support teams to secure resources for the same demands."

Kenandy Customers Find a New Home With Rootstock - by @erp_cindyjutras
"So, given the similarities between the two, this begs the ultimate question regarding products moving forward: Will the resulting combined company continue to develop, maintain and support two distinct products? And should it? Mr. Garrehy has already made it clear that the Kenandy product will live on, and has further speculated that the combined company will likely have two distinct product lines, serving at least somewhat different markets. While not cast in stone, perhaps the Kenandy ERP will move in the direction of light manufacturing and distribution, while the Rootstock product will support heavy-duty, more complex manufacturing."
