Lessons Learned on the Inca Trail
Peru, a country with a glorious past and an uncertain future, stands at the crossroads. The inability to attract significant trade or investment due to the crime and lack of democratic principles in the nation should be addressed as a matter of urgency.

The CEO, CFO, and TCO
Total cost of ownership (TCO) is a key component of the "investment" in "return on investment" (ROI). Naturally, the chief executive officer (CEO) and chief financial officer (CFO) care about ROI, but is TCO really a measure of agility?

2 companies poised to rule the   TCO—Who Cares? An August 2006 Aberdeen Group report on enterprise resource planning (ERP) in manufacturing tells us that TCO is the number two selection criterion for ERP software selections behind functionality. While TCO has always been considered a key criterion for software selection for small to mid-sized companies, the report shows that it is even more important in large (with revenues over $1 billion) companies. Looking at the two variables that rank first (functionality) and second (TCO) in Read More...
Reducing the Cost of Systems Operations
Disintermediation is the process of removing redundant intermediaries from a systems management infrastructure. Once vital to systems monitoring, proprietary agents are now made largely redundant by native management tools, emerging standards and agentless monitoring architectures. Centauri makes disintermediation possible by providing a low-cost event management solution that unifies performance data and event messages under a common umbrella. This paper describes how you can take advantage of the disintermediation opportunity and minimize the risks of migrating from working proprietary data collectors to a new native-agent based solution.

Architecture bridges the semantic gap between the requirements and software. Application software systems must be architected in order to deal with the current and future needs of the business organization.
