Implementation Design for a Regional WMS Solution

We were discussing with our solution team about the implemenation design for the regional WMS (warehouse management system) .  With the tight timeline to achieve and without any confirmed system design to work on, the Management agreed to go forward with a localised platform (stand-alone, single instance) and using this solution to deploy to other sites that may needs double-bytes/UTF-8 encoding.

We have reviewed the possibility to move forward to a centralised solution,  and to host in a site centrally accessible by the countries.  The contraints we have identified what we need to do to see if it is feasible to do centralised solution.

Points taken for considering a Centralized Solution:

  • The cost of purchasing the WMS application’s software license
  • The support structure, change management and SLA (service level agreement.
  • Multi-language support example to support UTF-8 encoding/double bytes characters.
  • Interfacing with local systems (country-specific)
  • Network performance
  • Inclusion of data manipulation from the web service
  • Centralised Hosting of the application server, database server, web server and possible RF (radio frequency) application at one site.
