Issues for TCO

Postby neilg » Thu Jun 16, 2005 2:20 pm

IMHO the following issues are back breakers or show stoppers for implementation of Compiere:

- ADHOC reporting . Must be considered up front. Compiere's built in reporting is simply not cost-efficient or elegant enough for production use in a large implementation. Consider that this is also an issue with most commercial packages, you will also need a 3rd party reporting tool. My point is - don't expect open source to take you ALL the way to the finish line.

- Data Import / Export - lets say you implemented a commercial solution using Microsoft SQL server you could use the built in facilities of DTS (data transformation services) without expecting to write code, to import and export your data easily into and from a variety of formats (including Oracle). With Compiere, you can expect to write code for anything of but the most basic imports.
