    Best ERP System

    What is the best ERP system ?

    Oracle

    SAP

    PeopleSoft (now part of Oracle)

    Baan (now part of SSA)

    JD Edwards (now part of Oracle)

    Siebel (now part of Oracle)

    SSA

    All those system are very good systems.

    The best ERP system is the one that covers the needs of the customer, with the lowest costs... There is no clear winner yet.

    You should have a look to Yahoo or Google Finance.

    Search for the Symbol ORCL. You will have a much better view of the market.

    You can't really compare these products as Oracle and SAP are usually targetting a different customer segment.

    Axapta is focussed on the middle market area, while SAP and Oracle target the larger firms.

    However, having said this, I've been involved in an Axapta implementation so will give you my impressions.

    It is a simple, basic, clean program. I imagine it would be very easy to implement extensions and your own code. The drawback of this however is that there seems to be very few controls over what you can do, and how data is structured.

    What this means is that upgrades and data consistency in reporting could be a problem in the future.

    Absolutely -- and no. Religion certainly gives a "competitive advantage" to groups, whether it's a clan, society or culture. Religion became prevalent in early societies as a way for people to explain things that they couldn't understand otherwise. To use your example, why would one berry be poisonous while other berries are nutritious? Someone without knowledge of botany and chemistry would have no idea. So, enter an invisible, higher power which somehow dictated everything about the world. This mythology certainly took hold and was passed orally, as you say. Groups that stuck together and shared this tradition created a system of norms and mores which translated into a more orderly society than those groups who did not. It goes without saying that cohesion and organization is an advantage to a society. Furthermore, as religion evolved it became a source of inspiration. If a people believe they are fighting, working, suffering for a higher purpose (such as a God, "freedom", etc.) then the people are much more willing to do the hard work needed to achieve the goals of the society. This is evident throughout history and is still happening in today's world. Therefore, using religion as a "competitive advantage" has not outgrown its usefulness. Religion is still a major motivator, in war, obedience to a state, convincing the masses not to question misery, uniting a nation against another and so on. The US has no central religion, which is way you see other abstract concepts hailed as a rallying cry, like "Fight for our freedom," "patriotism," and others. As long as there are people in this world who dislike other people, religion will be around.
