Open Source Enterprise Resource Planning (paid)
|Enterprise resource planning (ERP) is a software for the business management —usually a compact of some integrated applications which a company may use to manage, collect, store and interpret data from different business activities, which also includes:-
product cost and product development
Manufacturing and as well as service delivery
Marketing ,sales and Inventory management
Shipping and payment requirement and etc.
Enterprise Resource Planning provides an integrated view of a companies’ core business process, very often in real-time, by using common database which is said to be maintained by a database management system (DBMS). Enterprise Resource Planning system tracks the business resources such as—its cash capacity, raw materials required as well as used, production capacity of the enterpriseand also the status of business commitments such as number of orders, its purchase orders, and payroll of its employees. The applications which make up the entire system, shares data across the various different departments like the manufacturing dept., sales dept, purchase dept., accounts dept. and etc. that provides the data. Enterprise Resource Planning facilitates information flow between all the known business functions, and is also able to manage connections to the outside stakeholders.

|The Internet of Things (IoT)|
|The Internet of Things (IoT) is a scenario in which objects, animals or people are provided with unique identifiers and the ability to transfer data over a network without requiring human-to-human or human-to-computer interaction. IoT has evolved from the convergence of wireless technologies, micro-electromechanical systems (MEMS) and the Internet.
Where the Internet of things gets interesting is when you combine information from devices and other systems in novel ways, tapping into the huge processing capabilities available today to do the kinds of expansive analysis usually associated with the concept of big data -- meaning analysis of data not necessarily designed to be analyzed together.
To achieve the notion of the Internet of things, you need most of the following pieces in place:
Network connectivity, which is typically wireless
Sensors and/or user input that capture or generate data
Computational capabilities, at the device and/or back end
By the end of this decade, the world will be a more deeply and intimately connected place, with an estimated 7.3 billion smartphones, tablets and PCs, according to Gartner. And the Internet of Things will expand at an even more rapid rate–to 26 billion connected devices around the globe by 2020, a 30-fold increase over 2009. Click here to see Video
|3D Printing: Print whatever you want.|
|What 3D printing is
3D printing or additive manufacturing is a process of making three dimensional solid objects from a digital file. The creation of a 3D printed object is achieved using additive processes. In an additive process an object is created by laying down successive layers of material until the entire object is created. Each of these layers can be seen as a thinly sliced horizontal cross-section of the eventual object.
How 3D Printing works
It all starts with making a virtual design of the object you want to create. This virtual design is made in a CAD (Computer Aided Design) file using a 3D modeling program (for the creation of a totally new object) ór with the use of a 3D scanner (to copy an existing object). This scanner makes a 3D digital copy of an object and puts it into a 3D modeling program.
To prepare the digital file created in a 3D modeling program for printing, the software slices the final model into hundreds or thousands of horizontal layers. When this prepared file is uploaded in the 3D printer, the printer creates the object layer by layer. The 3D printer reads every slice (or 2D image) and proceeds to create the object blending each layer together with no sign of the layering visible, resulting in one three dimensional object.
