Epicor ICE

Epicor ICE is a modern and visionary technology developed by Epicor that enables Epicor ERP solution users with enhanced levels of mobility, accessibility, and interactivity among business applications. As a connector and an application builder, Epicor ICE provides distributors with access to the latest technical capabilities while still taking advantage of the industry-leading distribution functionality of Epicor ERP solutions.

With the advent of Epicor ICE (see also video), businesses gained a highly sophisticated standards-based platform for low-cost integration and high-end performance that offers unprecedented user productivity and a rapid return on investment (ROI). Epicor ICE redefined business architecture by fusing Internet technologies with a modern SOA to deliver a solution designed for people, built for business, yet ready for change.

A service-oriented approach ensures an abstraction of complexities in terms of how business systems are built and operated. In a services architecture, business logic, that represents software processes is broken down into a series of loosely coupled granular "business services" which are then made available and discoverable on a network via Web services. Each service provides functionality that can be adapted to the needs of the enterprise while hiding the underlying implementation details. By exposing business processes, service architectures provide the ability to streamline those same processes, which in turn promotes agile change management.

As a true services architecture, Epicor ERP allows businesses to independently access, integrate, and substitute any function or data element in the ERP system. There are over 1200 services, each with a variety of standardized operations. Every ERP capability is represented and available a service, which in turn is used to drive integrations or support various ERP client applications.

The Epicor ICE Business Architecture goes a step further by allowing all Epicor next-generation enterprise applications to be manipulated using Epicor Business Process Management (BPM) engine and Epicor Service Connect. Epicor ICE also features the Epicor Everywhere™ Framework—a unique technology that uses XML metadata to represent all client forms and logic. That metadata is then used to deliver customizations across an enterprise and drive pure HTML client applications to desktop, tablet, and phone devices.
