Workforce Analytics - A Blend of Business Intelligence and Human Resources
Written By: Gabriel Gheorghiu Published On: December 17 2009 In a previous blog post, I described how artificial intelligence (AI) can help human resources (HR) in the recruiting process. It is interesting to note that almost half of the people who took our poll would use AI—but not extensively. Besides being used for recruiting purposes, AI is used more and more in workforce management. By combining business intelligence (BI) with HR processes, business Read More...

Written By: Predrag Jakovljevic Published On: December 16 2009 Part 1 of this blog post series expanded on some of TEC’s earlier articles about companies’ need for better pricing management and optimization practices.

The SCM Perspective: 2009 in Review-and What You Can Do to Weather the Storms of 2010
Written By: Khudsiya Quadri Published On: December 15 2009 In spite of the 2009 recession, some SCM vendors were able to create traction in the supply chain space this year. From an industry landscape perspective, three events from 2009 will have a more far-reaching impact than any other in this space, primarily because they’re priming the conditions for still more vendor competition and industry volatility in the year to come.News item: Oracle Read More...
Why Privately Held Manufacturers Should Implement IFRS-ready ERP Solutions
Published On: December 14 2009 While regulatory requirements to adopt International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS) may be a concern for publically traded companies only, there are plenty of reasons why privately held entities will want to prepare to adopt IFRS as well. Read More...
Wrapping Up FOSS Predictions for 2010 with a Look Back
Written By: josh chalifour Published On: December 11 2009 I love end of year predictions. Whether they're right or wrong is one thing, but it's valuable to imagine various scenarios of what might happen. Taking the time to consider and connect what has happened with what might happen, opens new insights. Having said that, I'm not going to make a 2010 prediction about Free and Open Source Software (FOSS). I do, however, want to share some stats about Read More...

Written By: Predrag Jakovljevic Published On: December 11 2009 Part 1 of this blog series outlined Oracle’s recent (and seemingly genuine) change of heart and approach towards partnering and catering enterprise applications to small and medium enterprises (SMEs). The analysis then moved onto the Oracle Accelerate program, which was launched about three years ago to allow partners to sell a greater number of smaller projects with fixed time Read More...
Have ERP Solutions Become Greener during 2009?
Written By: Yu Chen Published On: December 10 2009 If you haven’t read the blog post ERP Vendors, Are You Green Enough? that I wrote a little over a year ago, I recommend you read it first. After you’ve checked it out, I assume you’ll understand that I used a flawed and extremely simplified approach to “confirm” my impression of the correlation between the size of enterprise resource planning (ERP) vendors and the greenness of their offerings (see Read More...
PLM (Vendors) and Lean Product Development -- Part 2: Dassault Systèmes
Written By: Yu Chen Published On: December 9 2009 Part 1 of this blog post series discussed in general the relationship between product lifecycle management (PLM) and lean product development (LPD), and pointed out that various PLM vendors may have different interpretations of PLM functionality, as well as different levels of support for users’ LPD initiatives. In this and a few future blog posts, I will choose some PLM vendors and talk about the Read More...
In the News: Gartner Lawsuit
Written By: Gabriel Gheorghiu Published On: December 9 2009 Gartner seems to be in the news a lot lately. First, they announced they will acquire AMR and now we find out that a vendor is suing them for not being included in the Magic Quadrant. I wasn’t surprised to find out that the name of the website where the news was published is techdirt. Another interesting post on the same website caught my attention: five years ago, a woman sued a telecom Read More...
Vox Populi: Does Your Company Have a Strategy for 2010?
Written By: Gabriel Gheorghiu Published On: December 8 2009 2009 has been a hard one for all of us. All companies, big or small, in all industries, have been more or less affected by the economic downturn. And even though some people think that the recovery has already started and next year will be better, we all know that it cannot be much better. Not to mention that we might have to get through the second wave of the crisis. In both cases, a full Read More...
