A Tale of Three Operational Software Approaches
There are so many different technologies to choose from when it comes to selecting the right software to help you manage your operations, that it can be overwhelming to pick the right one. In this whitepaper we examine three different approaches from three different vendors, all potentially valid but some more suitable for certain use cases over others.
The first approach, low-cost personal productivity apps, is represented by Excel; the second approach, no-code platform-based solutions, is represented by DevonWay; and the third approach, traditional enterprise resource planning (ERP), is represented by IBM Maximo. We review the scope of the three approaches, their implementations of certain common features, and how those implementations were informed by the particular problem space they were designed to address.
