The EOS (Enterprise Operating System) is a platform that optimise logically and flexibly operation and business processes. It allows monitoring Online and On-realtime enterprise resources and operations, in order to assign resources to required activities and task dynamically. The goal is that diverse resources connected by the Enterprise Operating System work as “one”.
There are eight characteristics that make an EOS unique among other enterprise platforms:
- Reflect reality. Nowadays, many enterprises adjust the inputs to their enterprise applications in order to match system requirements. As a consequence, data capturing become complex and the data analytics made is biased. In contrast, an EOS must be designed to capture the reality of the enterprise.
- Universal enterprise platform. An EOS platform must be the same for all countries and industries but configurable to special needs. Thereafter, the communication among different supply chains is eased, allowing the creation of CNOs.
- Ready to use, configurable, and scalable. Current enterprise applications need specific code development each time a client requires to expand, modify, or include a functionality during the implementation. An EOS is ready to operate from the first day and it adapts to the enterprise logic without programming.
- Non-stop natural workflow. In order to provide reports or synchronize processes, some enterprise applications need to be stopped, causing reworks and delays in business operations. An EOS must be designed for non-stop operation so business processes, such as accounting, can be derived at any time and immediately.
- Online & Realtime Transactional Operation. In order to get a valid and up-to-date information anytime, each transaction must be made into the application by the person that is in charge of it and in the moment that it happens. So, the information that reflects this transaction enters the database naturally, it is validated and its effects are applied upon all related transactions.
- Integrated database. Other application vendors provide a diversity of applications with different databases. As a consequence, the integrity of information is compromized. An EOS must have an integrated database that can be used to implement real-time data analytics.
- Business process orientation. Traditional module-oriented applications generate islands of information affecting the operation flows. To really support the operations of the enterprise, an EOS must be guided by the business processes.
- Full availability. To provide ubiquity, users must be able to access the EOS from a variety of devices in different situations. Due to the hyperconnectivity enabled by the Internet, cloud-based solutions can realize the ubiquity requirement. In addition, an EOS must be available 24 hours, all days of the year.
