Abas ERP

ABAS by far offers the most bang for the buck. We are able to handle all of our business functions through ABAS and also have additional features like Business Apps, Business Intelligence, Vendor and Customer portals, as well as many other features that many other ERP packages didn't have. It has allowed us to consolidate our software packages and also provide visibility since everything is now connected.

ORION Enterprise

Orion is a great tool for monitoring your devices and network. It is extremely reliable and provides power information and metrics regarding availability. It also has a nice alerting engine that can be set up based on the customer's needs. Overall the tool is powerful and very flexible when configured correctly.

Pros

  • Flexibility. ABAS is fully customizable. This allows us to create a work environment that is as custom as we are. Some ERP software packages force you to adopt their methods. With ABAS we can build the system the way we want it to work.
  • Adaptable. ABAS has the ability to work with other software packages and provide a seamless connection. We use Solid Works for our engineering designs. ABAS is connected to Solid Works and this eliminates transfer errors while reducing the time it takes for engineers to load bills of material.
  • Service. ABAS has well-trained service technicians. The time it takes to get a response is minimal and the network of knowledge their support group has, helps to streamline any tasks we may present or questions we may have.

  • Hardware monitoring is the main reason we bought the product, and we use it to monitor over 4,000 servers.
  • It also great for network monitoring, although we use other products for this function also. This is mostly because we are a big, siloed organization and is less to do with any issues with the functionality provided.
  • Application monitoring is also a capability of Orion. We have experimented with its function, but we have not rolled it out full-scale.

Cons

  • ABAS is headquartered in Germany with a US based headquarters in Virginia. Some of the programming structures were based on European methods that differed somewhat from the way business is done in the US. ABAS-USA has worked to modify the system so that it is in tune with US business practices and has made great strides in this effort. For the average user, the structures may go unnoticed, but for the more advanced user, some of the field names that are used for advanced reporting might be in German. However, ABAS-USA has recently been updating the programming language to be fully in English.
  • Because ABAS is growing rapidly, more complex customizations might take longer to complete than normal. ABAS appears to be bringing on even more technicians to handle the increased workload so the concern is waning.

  • You still need other tools, so it is not a true enterprise solution. We still use products like Splunk for detailed log info and ThousandEyes to see when/where users are logging into our apps. There are also other products in use like ExtraHop and Dynatrace, but I believe that is more a function of my organization and less to do with product capabilities.
  • Sales methodology is very different because they don't travel and have a rep out in front of you. They do everything remotely, so if you are a big company this may take some getting used to.
  • The licensing/contracting model is unique. Everything is recurring on a set of data every year. They don't do MSA or SOW, just agree to the EULA and pay for the product. Again, I think this is different than what most large companies are used to.

Alternatives Considered

These other software packages all have strengths but for what we were looking for in one system, to handle most of our business processes, but also allow the flexibility to be customized (without the need to be placed on a "like to have" waiting list), ABAS gave us that ability, hands down.

We use Orion for a very specific use case and do not leverage all the available functions of the tools. I do think the product is very capable and the different modules are very powerful. We are a big company and we already had several systems in place that provide the same functions. We use Orion specifically for monitoring our devices and network.

Return on Investment

  • ABAS has the capability to handle many of the processes that we did on various software platforms. Since we've been able to consolidate these platforms, the cost of subscriptions, maintenance and management hasve been reduced.
  • Efficiency was a noticeable impact right from the start. In the past, reports from one system had to be loaded into another in order to provide the analysis needed for business decisions. Connections to our design software also reduced the amount of time our engineers spent manually creating bills of material and purchase requisitions.
  • The ability to see what's happening in various business functions all in one place has helped with decision making and provided the data necessary to ask the right questions when arriving at those hard decisions.

  • We have gained tremendous value from Orion enterprises device data and monitoring. It allows us to see what devices in our network are having problems or need attention.
  • The alerting engine in Orion is very powerful and can be configured to meet the needs of the customer.
  • Networking mapping and monitoring is also very powerful and provides real-time information about network up and downtime.
