In the September issue of EDGE, we look at the complexities around getting information out of an enterprise-resource planning (ERP) system.

Should you go with a closed-loop solution (software tools are bundled into an ERP system) or look for an independent third-party

Is such software just too complex to serve basic information needs, and are their other alternatives to guiding the decision-making process.

Read EDGE in September and find out.
