Functional Training End Game: The goal of the functional training is to develop an understanding of the fundamental business concepts related to manufacturing, how these concepts relate to ERP, and specifically how they are handled within QAD Enterprise Applications. The sessions will first focus on general business processes (e.g. Master Scheduling) to ensure all participants understand the value they provide to the business and best practices for delivering such processes. The training will then drill into detailed concepts and the tools available in ERP / QAD to support the process.

Technical Training End Game: The goal of the training is to provide a broad overview of building state-of-the-art integration solutions using QAD QXtend and Dell Boomi – QAD’s choice for cloud-ready middleware. In the era of the co-existing of cloud solutions and on-premise applications, moving the data among various systems smoothly and transparently is essential to have an efficient enterprise. We will use this session to introduce the building blocks – QXtend and Boomi and show the trainees the processes of building the integration solutions.
