New age Enterprise resource planning systems

Activity based accounting has changed the accounting system where even cost centre inputs to bottom line is also appreciated , calculated and accounted and apportionment is run not only to profit centre but also to cost centre.

This led to renewed influence of new cost centre based new module reporting like Human resource Accounting/Analytic ( Profit centre based system were preferred early and coast centre were neglected )which not only introduced new module in the Enterprise Resource planning ERP also changed the interlinking between modules such as Human resource management system , human resource accounting influence to General ledger and to profit and loss account.

– as each activity is apportioned into management accounting there are changes which are happening in the Analytics as more deeper ,cross functional analytic measure are used last 5 yrs leading to huge changes in business thinking for top line and bottom line growth.
– as BI becomes pervasive and ubiquitous it leads to deeper granular analysis to system thinking by lower level staff leading to bottom up innovation.
cloud and mobility has introduced pay per use model which influenced more pervasive BI and ERP usage by all staff giving fillip to bottom up thinking. Capital expenditure changed to operating expenditure leading to more acceptability to mid size companies as well large scale companies.
– real time updates using sensor based tracking of supply chain items , stock keeping unit SKU in Retail and in-memory system (SAP HANA, Oracle Exadata, IBM Cognos TM1)  making update faster and possibility of including more compressed data into primary memory for analysis.

Gamification/AJAXifying of ERP:
dobe forms and increasing replaced SAP forms and even Oracle apps forms in AJAXified ERP systems. Augmented reality on AJAX making possible Gamification of ERP.
Javascript and AJAX dominates the Java on client side. increasing used of Node.js making server side javascript dominance a possibility with less requirement for strictly typed languages like Java and easy callback references.

Ubiquitous Computing is were everyone is moving now

Ubiquity in next frontier where software is moving what are important characteristics of ubiquitiy

If we see here how different stack are built over a period of time For instance: Oracle Stack from storage using sun technology and data base oracle in middleware: Oracle fusion middleware, Operating system solaris, and ERP solutions like peoplesoft, Sielble, and Oracle financials and retail apps..On all these areas solutions should work across what was missing was communication piece for which also Oracle acquired lots of communication companies…Now Same way

Microsoft Stack: Windows OS server /networking , HyperV hypervisor,SQL server database, biztalk middleware,MSBI Bi, dynamics as ERP with financial/CRM etc module..there is PAAS which can leverage this all across Called software are cutting these boundaries..

If we take definition of Ubiquitous computing it collective wisdom of moving toward miniaturization, inexpensive, seamlessly integrated and wireless networked devices working on all daily use items and objects like watch to fridge etc..same vision on which long back

all models of ubiquitous computing share a vision of small, inexpensive, robust networked processing devices, distributed at all scales throughout everyday life and generally turned to distinctly common-place ends.We have ambient intelligence which are aware of people needs by unifying telecom,networking and computing needs creating context aware pervasive computing. On back hand where we have all the data stored in cloud storage ..we have integrated stack..not every component of stack needs to talk to this new ubiquitous computing devices and software.

what technologies are colliding there:

Data communications and wireless networking technologies: moving towards new form of devices sensitive to environment and self adjusting , without wire connecting to each other creating meshup network. drive towards ubiquitious computing is essential to networks drive towards wireless networking.
Middleware: We have PAAS PlAform As Service in cloud mere all miniaturized device have limited storage will store data. To leverage this data as well to work all across the virtualization like we have Microsoft azure as discussed above and Oracle fusion middleware
Real-time and embedded systems: all real time messages needs to captured using Real time OS RTOS and passed to devices to interactivity with outside world dynamic.
Sensors and vision technologies: Sensors sense and pass information important part of ubiquitous computing.sensors in fridge senses out of milk and starts interacting with mobile to sent information to retail store to send delivery (its a typical example).
Context awareness and machine learning: device is aware whether its near to bank or near to office or police station and start reacting to relevant application this is geolocation..going deep watch when we go inside water start beaming depth from the river ded comes out and shows time..on same display context aware..still when it goes near to heat heat sensor sends temperature to display.
Information architecture: huge data will be generated from this network now this data needs to be analysed depending on its type its storage ans retrival architecture varies..big data will not stored same way RDBMS is stored.
Image processing and synthesis: and bio metric devices needs to get image of the to authenticate and send information. Image processing algorithm like edge detection algorithm will run over this huge data to get satellite data captured and fed into edge detection algorithm to find water bodies using huge variation in reflectance level as we move from sand to water..

There wold be huge usage of there in next generation BI systems.

So tools like uBIquity will make difference in future:

As BI becomes pervasive everyone would surely want to use it.. its natural evolution process for and user to get attracted to BI system where user can create his own query to find it become pervasive ti would enter into every device and here were it will strat interacting with ubiquity…ubiquity is future in BI.
