Platform suited for Creating an ERP Software

Managed code

.Net offers many tools and components that can be used to write managed code. Managed code is better because software errors are identified and stopped before systems crash. .Net ensures that we do not encounter memory leaks while using software.

Security

.Net enforces a new system of supervision. Hackers will find it difficult to break through the .net security model.

Connectivity

.Net development tools make it easier to develop ERP softwares by providing connectivity techniques such as XML web services. This is vital because ERP softwares will be distributed, collaborative and networked systems which communicate constantly. Building an ERP system for such environments is much easier with .net technologies.

Scalability

ERP softwares require continues up-gradations which means constant addition of new technologies and features. .Net allows this, as improvements in .net framework is instantly available to the upgraded ERP software. This allows better scalability.

SQL Server

Every ERP software should include a database system which can handle the large amount of data entered in an ERP software. Relational databases like Oracle and SQL Server are recommended for handling the data in an eRP software. SQL server software provides advanced features such as Structured Query Language, business intelligence, stored procedures to enforce validations, implement business logic of an ERP application, triggers to initiate actions, implementation of transactions in an ERP software which enables concurrent access of database and provides security

EntityFramework

Entity Framework enables programmers to create ERP applications without worrying about structure of the database, and work with schemas which reflect business objects. In the ERP books, we have discussed ADO.Net Data Readers and DataSets and also how to retrieve and save data. We work with the database schema when we use the ADO.Net technology. However, when we use entity framework, we work with the data model and not with the actual database.

In software a module is a part of a program, and programs are composed of one or more independently developed modules that are not combined until the program is linked. ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning) software typically consists of multiple enterprise software modules that are individually purchased, based on what best meets the specific needs and technical capabilities of the organization. Each ERP module is focused on one area of business processes, such as product development or marketing. Some of the more common ERP modules include those for product planning, material purchasing, inventory control, distribution, accounting, marketing, finance and HR.
