Sandra Kurtzig, CEOIn today’s global business environment, staying competitive means moving fast and being flexible. Being able to quickly bring on new acquisitions, or easily integrate with other enterprise applications. Companies with legacy ERP systems can’t keep up with today’s business demands. These systems are costly to maintain and can’t scale fast enough to capture new opportunities.
That’s why Sandra Kurtzig founded Kenandy in 2010— to once again transform the world of enterprise management software. She did this the first time in 1972, when she founded ASK Computer Systems and created the groundbreaking MANMAN product family. during her 20-year tenure as founder, chairman and CEO of the ASK Group, Kurtzig grew the company into one of the ten largest software companies in the world. Now, as Chairman and CEO of Kenandy, she’s helping to drive the adoption of enterprise management on the cloud.

"Manufacturing is undergoing significant changes throughout the world due to the rise of disruptive technologies and business models and the changing unprecedented growth of business regulation, to name a few reasons. The way companies bring products to market is changing drastically. Vertically integrated manufacturing has given way to product companies that use supply chain networks, contract manufacturers and fulfillment centers. Product companies need the tools to plan, manage and collaborate with these networks.
Staying competitive means moving fast and being agile. Applications developed on the cloud have many advantages over on-premise solutions including quick time to value and the flexibility to keep pace with a dynamic business climate. “Cloud computing will change computing for everyone”, saysSandra. “And whenever a shift like that happens, there will be new opportunities for players to come in”, she adds.
