Infor24: Demystifying Infor’s Cloud Strategy - Part 2

Part 1 of this blog series started with the assertion that cloud computing is reaching mainstream adoption in the enterprise applications space. Indeed, virtually all renowned independent software vendors (ISVs) already offer or plan to offer some or all of their products as a service (on-demand software). My blog post then expanded onto some cloud computing definitions and nuances, to Read More

As Dassault Systèmes Customer Conference (DSCC) 2010 moved to day 2, use of the word “innovation” continued its popularity at various sessions. However, I’d like to refrain from using this hot keyword and move to “sustainability,” one of the outcomes of innovation, and discuss it from a role perspective. This thought was triggered by today’s ENOVIA Brand Overview session by Michel Tellier Read More

The Dassault Systèmes Customer Conference (DSCC) 2010 kicked off on November 9th, 2010 in Orlando, Florida. It is the second time that Dassault Systèmes has hosted the customer conference collectively for most of the company’s brands at a single event, with a geographic focus on the Americas (the European Customer Forum [ECF] 2010 is the European equivalence taking place in two weeks).

Having trouble sleeping at night? Lots of people are these days, and for good reasons. The economy is in the dumps. Jobs are on the endangered species list. We’re steadily running out of oil. And terrorists are trying to kill us. Now, if all that isn’t enough to keep you awake at 4 o’clock in the morning, there’s always the fact that the planet is threatening to terminally overheat.

One thing we learned in the data warehouse and data management world is that when it comes to the analysis of big data, there is also a lot of big money involved in order to gain position. But is the analysis of extensive amounts of data really a key component for the corporate business world? Read More

Some Belated Insights from, well, Deltek Insight 2010 - Part 2

Part 1 of this blog series started with me lamenting my inability to attend the Deltek Insight 2010 conference. However, I recently had an in-depth post-event recap instead with Deltek’s in-the-know staff members. What then followed in Part 1 were descriptions of the major developments that transpired at Deltek Insight 2010 in terms of already released products and those Read More

My Takeaway From ERE Expo 2010

I attended ERE Expo online by following the live stream, which by the way was really great, with no interruptions and good sound/video quality. In a way, I’m glad I couldn’t be there in person, since the conference was in Florida, the weather was great and the location was very close to the beach—following online from rainy Montreal allowed me to concentrate better. On the other hand, it seems Read More

What’s With Ariba Selling Its Sourcing Services Team to Accenture?

My recent series about the merger of JDA Software and i2 Technologies raised the issue whether any independent software vendor (ISV) can at the same time be a successful professional service provider (even without considering a possible conflict with its service provider partners). Coincidentally or not, in early October Ariba sent a message to the market that its focus Read More

Infor24: Demystifying Infor’s Cloud Strategy - Part 1

Anyone that is still vociferously doubting and denying the future of cloud computing and its near-mainstream nature will sound as strange and nutty as some US Senate hopefuls that still proudly deny evolution and climate change (while admitting to “dabbling with witchcraft” in the not-too-distant past). In fact, can anyone name a renowned enterprise resource planning (ERP Read More
