Sage Enterprise Management Architecture Explained
In this post we are reviewing the Sage Enterprise Management architecture with a focus on the technology environment, implementation options, scalability, UX and security.
Sage Enterprise Management is a highly scalable platform that organisations can embrace to leverage cloud or on-premises digital workspaces. A powerful ERP software solution that drives seamless workflows and supports secure, real-time file-sharing and collaborations on data.
The Sage ERP solution can form the backbone of the digital transformation to give your company a competitive edge and catalyse growth on a global scale.
Let’s review Sage Enterprise Management architecture, deployment options, user interface, scalability, and other features/functions that suit it for the dynamic IT needs of a rapidly growing enterprise.
Before the architecture, what’s Sage Enterprise Management?
Sage Enterprise Management redefines ERP by adding simplicity, versatility, and scalability to workflow automation across finance, supply chain, production, and other business functions. A superior user experience makes it easy to interact with the system via various browsers, mobile and desktop devices, and operating systems.
It’s an open system that you can integrate with on-premises and external applications for secure, seamless, and open-ended workflows and data exchanges. It introduces capabilities for document management, business analytics, and custom app development.
Cloud is the Platform’s Backbone
Cloud is the backbone of the Sage Enterprise Management architecture. It provides the environment for the deployment of applications that manage real-time digital workspace collaborations and workflows for each line of business. The platform lies at the heart of seamless, round-the-clock access to the ERP’s enterprise applications via the web and mobile devices.
3 Ways to implement the ERP Solution
Sage Enterprise Management supports three deployment options, each of which has a couple of unique perks. Going the whole hog is the best approach for an organization seeking to launch into the cloud quickly and start leveraging full-blown capabilities right away. In this case, Amazon Web Services hosts the required business management applications. The customer does not have to install, maintain, or update the infrastructure in-house.
Alternatively, an organization may host Sage Enterprise Management on-premise, allowing it to integrate the platform with pre-existing legacy applications or any appropriate third-party solution. The customer can also build and deploy custom software to work with the ERP software.
A third-party web data centre is a deployment model that lets the customer host Enterprise Management with their preferred cloud provider. Here, a customer may deploy custom applications subject to approval by the hosting partner.
What’s the best option for your business? There is no right or wrong answer when it comes to Cloud vs On-Premise. Every business and will have different requirements.
The Mobility Advantage
Sage Enterprise Management helps improve workplace productivity, and it allows employees to collaborate on data and share files while on the move or working remotely by accessing the network via mobile devices. It supports a broad array of operating systems, including Windows 10, Android, and iOS. In the event of poor connectivity, users can access system applications offline via authorized, secure endpoints.
The platform provides iOS and Windows applications that can manipulate built-in mobile device features or functions like cameras, push notifications, and QR code reading. It lets customers build custom mobile apps that extract and process data in the Sage Enterprise Management database via RESTful API requests.
A Highly Scalable Business Management System
Regardless of the deployment model, the Sage Enterprise Management architecture is versatile enough to let organizations scale from local to multinational operations. It always meets growing business requirements, and it can scale from fewer than 10 to thousands of simultaneous users. The platform accommodates the expansion of an organization’s digital footprint, seamlessly.
A Superior UX
Personalized interfaces, simple data visualizations, and easy navigation are some of the features that enhance the Sage Enterprise Management user experience. For example, users can customize data capture forms to show only the commands and input fields relevant to their roles. Step-by-step process maps direct users through workflows, and the TEAMS feature lets organizations set up project teams whose members can collaborate on document management or processing.
Several security layers ensure the integrity and safety of covered or private data and resources in Enterprise Management, from Single Sign-On user authentication and third-party audits/certification to HTTPS encryption. SAML2, Sage ID, and Oauth2 identity verifications help prevent the wrong users from breaching the ERP network and data.
The ERP Architecture
The application server supports a range of business functions. For example, the batch server helps to automate recurring workflows.
On the other hand, the data layer is the source of all enterprise data.
Sage Enterprise Management provides the powerful computing resources businesses need to streamline workflows, secure data, and scale.
The system gives you the tools you need to manage all aspects of your growing business from manufacturing to finance, inventory, reporting and more, even across multiple companies and geographies.
The Sage ERP system was developed with scalability and flexibility in mind, to give SMEs the confidence of choosing a solution that will scale with their business and provide unparalleled security for their data.
