When Your Computer Talks Back: Handling Error and Warning Messages

Dealing with computer error and warning messages can be a frustrating experience. They can be impossible to understand. Sometimes "no" really means "yes." And you ignore them at your own peril. Today's feature blog post offers you a guide to handling these often puzzling, usually irritating little nuggets of communication. Find out what to do—and what not to do—when your computer system decides to talk back to you.

An enterprise resource planning (ERP) system is designed to give you visibility into your organization, but if you're a manufacturer, that visibility can all too easily turn into tunnel vision. Today's feature article looks at how your ERP system can develop blind spots, and what you can do to prevent that from happening.

With your ERP system essential to your company's daily operations, it's crucial that ERP upgrades are handled properly. Today's feature white paper shows you how to get ERP upgrades right—with minimal pain—by developing a long-term strategy and a comprehensive tactical plan.

Also in this issue: we're pleased to provide an update to an article published in our last Newsletter—see One Vendor's Exploit of Marrying Infrastructure with Selling and Fulfillment Applications.
