On Cloud

EXPAND is now available on the clouds. This means that all you need to access EXPAND is an internet connection and a web browser.Capital expenditure in information technology is one of the major pain areas for the small and medium enterprises.

We at eDominer understand that the work scope and nature of supply chain makes it quite difficult for any small and medium business to procure funds and invest in information technology at will.

That is why we have introduced EXPAND smERP on the clouds.We value the importance of small and medium enterprises and fully understand how hectic and unorganized work can get. EXPAND smERP On Cloud solution will make your business life that much easier. It does not include any capital expenditure and can be accessed from anywhere as long as the user has access to a computer and an internet connection.An easy to pay monthly subscription plan ensures the customers, the flexibility of payments. EXPAND ERP services India and other Countries in the world

On Premises

EXPAND is also available based on a traditional deployment methodology where the server is located at the premises of the customer.The traditional approach to Implementation involves the setting up of the server on the premises of the customer.

This is ideal for the larger Organizations since they enjoy the economies of scale. A larger Organization often include supply chain operations including multiple locations and a greater amount of users. Thus it is feasible for them to have the server installed at a centralized location (usually the head office) and all other locations / channels connected to the server. Although it requires significant capital expenditure, this Methodology facilitates a more flexible implementation in terms of data storage and data security.

This type of model is suitable for the Organizations which follow a Restrictive policy on internet access. So long as the users have access to the internal network. they can easily access EXPAND from their computer.An easy to pay monthly subscription plan ensures the customers, the flexibility of payments.

High Availability Note

eDominer Systems delivered a High Availability presentation for Microsoft at TechED India 2009. Please refer to that presentation for more information on High Availability solution on EXPAND using Microsoft SQL Server 2005/2008. The presentation can be downloaded from www.eDominer.com

Failover Clustering Overview

Instance level protection built on Windows Failover Clustering shared disk model. Cluster nodes typically co-located within the same site to provide local HA

Database Mirroring or Peer-to-Peer transactional replication

At the database level high availability solution that provides complete protection against data loss and fast recovery through automatic failover.

Disaster Recovery

Disaster Recovery is possible by using another site with the same equipment configuration, providing there is enough capacity within your network. This can be achieved through VLAN’s and stretch storage level replication.

Note: This is a simplified explanation to demonstrate that it is possible. A BCP is required to identify the full requirements before a solution could be scoped properly.

BI solution architecture

EXPAND APP are application servers hosting the EXPAND web based application. The application interacts real time with the underlying database (EXPAND DB). The databases can be mirrored or set up in a clustered environment.

eDominer’s BI architecture extracts data from EXPAND databases, transforms it, and loads it into the data warehouse (eDom DW).

The data warehouse consists of factual data from sales, purchase, finance & inventory in a de-normalized structure. These can be termed as functional data marts.

The data warehouse also consists of many dimensional data which are used to slice and dice the factual data for analysis purposes. The data warehouse acts as a source for the multidimensional cubes (Data analysis eDom MD data).

There are 4 cubes, one each for finance, sales, purchase & inventory. The multidimensional data is used for reporting and analysis. The storage structure is highly optimized for quick aggregations and retrieval.

Cloud Computing

ERP Cloud Computing

ERP cloud computing is introduced with the growing competition with outside world and bigger players, it becomes increasingly difficult to keep pace. The large manufacturing companies have the advantage of being more efficient, more process driven and not people driven.

Configuration & Security

High Security and Protection

There are many issues to consider when investing in extensive software for your business. Will the software be able to grow with my business? If we do not need all the features right from the start, will we be able to activate them later on? How easy is it to define which users have access to which parts of the system?

Customer Management

Key Benefits

  • View only accessible features for an as-simple-as-possible experience
  • Grant different rights to each company’s accounts in the same database
  • Grant access on a data level using Record Level security

Configuration keys

The configuration keys in EXPAND smERP are your tools to control the functionalities and features in the system. There are more then 200 configuration keys thoroughly documented to make it clear which functionality is affected when you de-activate it.

Configuration keys ensure that your EXPAND smERP solution is not cluttered with functionality you don’t use. So you get a user interface that is easy to use, quicker data communication and less strain on your network. The de-activated functionality is hidden but not deleted or removed from the system.

When you install EXPAND smERP, you’ll get the simplest possible start-up, whether you use one module or several. If and when you need extra features, these can safely be enabled later. A specific setup can still be exported and imported, or, if necessary, reset to standard, which is the minimized system.

Security keys

With security keys, you can determine the functionalities that different users have access to. As with the configuration keys, the restrictions you set up for a specific user will be reflected throughout the entire application. You can deny or grant users access to entire modules or even to specific forms or link.

You can give one user rights to set up a sales order and view stock in trade but no access to edit or view stock postings, whereas another user can have full access to stock postings but can only view sales orders.

The security key structure resembles the Main menu structure. To make it easier to set up the details under each security keys, it’s possible to drill down in the functionality. The drill-down will display the form controls and other menu items that are accessible from the menu item giving you the complete picture of the functionality you grant access too.

The functionality which a user does not have access to, will visually disappear from the interface. If and when you choose to re-activate certain functionality, all the related fields will become enable/visible again.

When you determine user access to menu items, there are five different categories to facilitate different levels of user access:
  • Can View – the user can only view items
  • Can Edit – the user has access to edit items
  • Can Append – the user can create new items
  • Can Delete – the user can delete items
  • Can view Report – the user can see the report

The different categories let you accommodate different users’ needs for access to your business’ data and at the same time you can keep modification rights to a minimum.
