  As we could imagine, if you are reading this article – you are in the
decision making mode, probably replacing legacy system with the new
one or abandoning either Unix/Mainframe or Apple direction for your
corporation   In any case, nobody should make an outside
influence on your decision – you should be maximally objective  
Let us give you our estimates and the parameters to check on the pool of
the possible ERPs/MRPs Lifecycle
  Each application has its lifecycle: from inception and initial fighting
for the “place under the sun”, to maturing and then slowly or rapidly
declining   Great Plains Software Dynamics, which is prototype of
our days Microsoft Great Plains was released in 1994-95 as the first
Graphical Accounting/MRP application, working on the Microsoft
Windows and Mac OS   Plus Great Plains Dexterity – Dynamics
platform was designed as both computer graphical platform as well as
database platform independent (to some extent of course, especially
when we talk about tuning it to the database platform for performance
reason)   So, technically Microsoft Great Plains has 10 years of
history and is currently in the maturity phase
 Database Platform   Current trends in the IT applied science are
biased toward reliable and standard database platform   If you look
at such product as SAP (Abap) or Navision (C/Side native database)
  This is probably reflection of the future multiple OS harmony:
Linux, Windows, Unix systems will coexist communicating via XML (pure
text) inbound and outbound streams
  WeÂ’d say you should be looking for ERP which sits in the
standard database: Microsoft SQL Server, Oracle, IBM DBII, Ingress,
Sybase, Unidata   SQL is the survivor and it will stay for a very long
time   It should be possible to query your data via SQL queries –
this will make your life easier when you face integration, customization
and reporting needs   Microsoft Great Plains uses MS SQL Sever
 Positions in your country   If you are in the USA – you should
know these facts about Microsoft Business Solutions   First jewel,
that was bought by Microsoft was Great Plains Software, in fact Doug
Burgum, GPS leader was old friend of Bill Gates  Few years
before acquisition by Microsoft GPS bought Solomon Software, its old
and major competitor
  Currently Microsoft Solomon is targeted to Project Oriented
Business – Construction, Consulting, etc   Few years after Great
Plains acquisition, Microsoft Business Solutions purchased Denmark
based Navision Software   Navision had long presence in the USA,
especially in the manufacturing ERP market   But, as we believe
– and this is our private opinion – Navision acquisition allowed
Microsoft to gain substantial portion of the European ERP market
  We think that if you are in the USA, Canada, Australia, New
Zealand, Middle East, Latin America and your are not a construction
company – then Great Plains is good choice for you Industry specifics
  Microsoft Great Plains should be considered as ERP platform
ready for tuning to your business needs and so, you should make your
decision if you would prefer customization or purchasing so-called
rich-functionality ERP
  Great Plains is the platform for the customization   It fits to
hybrid cloud all the spectrum of industries: apparel, medical,
pharmaceutical, distribution, logistics, aerospace, defense, wholesale,
metals, chemicals, retail to name a few Good luck with selection,
implementation, customization and integration and if you have issues or
concerns – we are here to help!  If you want us to do the job -
