Advice from Olin Thompson, the Father of Process ERP
The existing literature about ERP systems - especially ERP for process manufacturers - provides many sources of helpful information for Microsoft Dynamics AX solution architects. In particular, I have found many useful articles written by Olin Thompson.
Some of my favorite articles from Olin have been targeted at ERP users, such as his analysis of application erosion, system replacement versus refresh, build versus buy, decisions about upgrades and maintenance, and standardizing on one ERP package (in a multi-company enterprise). Olin's articles have also been targeted at the software vendors and partners, such as suggestions for effective selling.
