• Enterprise resource planning (ERP) is a company-wide computer software system used to manage and coordinate all the resources, information, and functions of a business from shared data stores. An ERP system has service oriented architecture with modular hardware and software units or "services" that communicate on a LAN. The modular design allows a business to add or reconfigure modules (perhaps from different vendors) while preserving data integrity in one shared database that may be centralized or distributed.

    Ideally, ERP delivers a single database that contains all data for the software modules, which would include: Manufacturing, Supply Chain Management (SCM), Financials, Human Resource Management (HRM), Project Management, Customer Relationship Management (CRM).

    Maximo, JD Edwards EnterpriseOne, Oracle e-Business Suite, PeopleSoft, SAP R/3, mySAP, Microsoft Dynamics AX, Microsoft Dynamics GP, NetERP are well known ERP softwares.

SDLC Methodologies

  • SDLC Methodologies:

    A software development process is a structure imposed on the development of a software product. Synonyms include software life cycle and software process. There are several models for such processes, each describing approaches to a variety of tasks or activities that take place during the process.

    Systems Development Life Cycle (SDLC) is any logical process used by a systems analyst to develop an information system, including requirements, validation, training and user ownership. A SDLC should result in a high quality system that meets or exceeds customer expectations, reaches completion within time and cost estimates, works effectively and efficiently.

    Some well known SDLC models to manage the complexity in traditional systems are waterfall, fountain, spiral, build and fix, rapid prototyping, incremental, synchronize and stabilize.

    Methodologies in use over the recent years,

    image1   Agile methodologies, such as XP and Scrum, focus on light-weight processes which allow for rapid       changes along the development cycle
    image1   Iterative methodologies, such as Rational Unified Process (RUP) and Dynamic Systems Development       Method, focus on limited project scopes and
    image1   Sequential or big-design-upfront (BDUF) models, such as Waterfall, focus on complete and correct       planning to guide large projects and risks to successful and predictable results

    USG consultants are trained well with all traditional and latest SDLC methodologies to meet the clients need on time with quality.
