How does the data affect the operation of my ERP?

Data and programming are the foundation of all ERP software. These directly affect its operation, since according to the volume of data and the different guidelines in which it is programmed, they affect the behavior of the ERP. For this reason, it is very important to take into account these factors to ensure success in the implementation, as well as in its correct development once it is already in use. In today’s blog, we delve into this topic and talk about how data affects an ERP like Microsoft Dynamics 365bc Business Central.

Quality in programming

When a company decides to implement an ERP, there are a number of phases that must follow. First, you should choose the platform that you consider most suitable for your business, as well as choose a good partner. Next, you will elaborate an analysis of requirements where you will detail your needs in a generic way, and without falling into the error of demanding excessively. One The reason why it is essential to pay attention to ERP programming is because it will determine the behavior of the software. Thus, it is a series of indications that we define so that the ERP system works as we wish. In this way, the quality in the programming is very relevant.

Constant improvement 

Once the ERP is configured and programmed, it should be being optimized periodically. Otherwise, the moment there is a high data load, the program may slow down and even make it impossible to work on it. In this way, not having done a good job in the initial programming phase, can cause consequences such as the loss of time on the part of the client, or loss of resources.

Even so, there is no 100% reliability, but sometimes errors can originate at times of a large data load, and the software can behave unpredictably. 

For that reason, one of the most important parts of the maintenance phase is the optimization of the ERP platform. In situations where areas work very slowly, these can be accelerated by changes or optimizing the programming of our software. That’s because absolutely every process is they can always improve speed and performance by up to 95%, thus reducing loading time.

The data: possible source of errors 

Programming is the basic structure of ERP software and is largely responsible for its proper functioning. Even so, the data can also lead to errors. In this way, we must take into account the data structure that we have programmed. For example, if we have thought that the data is going to be entered contains only numbers, we will program and structure the software following this premise. If we suddenly enter data containing letters, the program will not be able to recognize it and will fail. Thus, this problem is not caused by the configuration of the software, but the error comes when entering erroneous data.
