ERP Today is launching two new vendor channels from November where it will collate all Oracle and SAP-related content. The new monthly blogs will provide a round-up and analysis of the hottest topics in the Oracle and SAP ecosystems written by independent industry leaders with deep sector and product knowledge.

To support the new dedicated vendor channels, ERP Today has appointed two industry-heavyweights to its editorial committee: Andy Bird, CEO at Inoapps, joins as contributing editor – Oracle, and Paul Cooper, chair of UKISUG, joins as contributing editor – SAP.

Cooper has more than 20 years’ experience working with and managing SAP solutions and has been an active member UKISUG for over 10 years and chairman since 2017.

Commenting on the appointments, Paul Esherwood, editor at ERP Today said: “I’m delighted to welcome Andy and Paul to our editorial committee as contributing editors. They are both extremely knowledgeable and respected members of their communities and I am looking forward to seeing their take on how each of the two biggest ERP vendors are developing their propositions. The addition of this external expertise to our editorial committee will allow ERP Today to continue its mission of providing CxOs with the information they need to navigate the complex and dynamic world of digital transformation through impartial and candid analysis.”
