12 of the Best BOS Blogs of 2013

New Beginnings

Last year, Blue Ocean Systems Singapore published over 50 blog posts (53 to be precise!) With each post, we aim to update our readers on important SAP advances, inspire new thinking and approaches to doing business and also share news, tips and advice across a range of business areas. If you missed any of last year’s posts, here’s a run down of the top 12 from 2013…

In January our focus was on the latest version of the world’s favourite Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) solution for growing companies – SAP Business One Version 9.0. We looked at the SAP roadmap and the extensive list of upgrades, enhancements and new features this latest version brought with it, including business logic improvements, extensibility and supportability as well as technology infrastructure.

February’s blog posts delivered us the business side of SAP Business One Version 9.0 updates and how the changes could particularly help small businesses. The most popular post for that month looked at why businesses benefit from using an out-of-the-box solution instead of spending dollars, time and effort on a customisable system.

March was an exciting month for Blue Ocean Systems – it was time for us to introduce the game-changing technology of SAP HANA. Our favourite thing about HANA? It’s hard to pick just one, but the biggest benefit to our clients has to be the ability to manage and leverage their Big Data sources. Click to read our Big Data post.

In April, we looked at several ways in which small businesses can leverage an ERP, even if they think they are too small for such software. We often hear from prospective clients who are very keen to improve their business processes but feel an ERP is just ‘too big’ for them.
