Good article on T&L.

This covers the “SAP Perspective” from ERP to Business Apps to Analytics to Technology … nicely aligning with SAP’s 5 categories.

ERP:  more focused on instance consolidation or a shift from on-premise to cloud.  Continued drive to plug TM functionality seamlessly into ERP.

BI:  main purpose (right now) to gain visibility, but without real-time access to production data, visibility via BI has clear limitations.  SAP HANA is a possible solution.

Good points on Social Media as well … don’t think Twitter/Facebook”, instead think of the paradigm … the process of sharing information and collaboration being built into TM and Logistics network information clouds.
