Big ERP Players Courting Government Agencies
There has been significant activity in the public sector, with all major players winning important new federal contracts for Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP).
mere marketing pitch. The 64,000-dollar question is how functionality rich these new 'e-gov' modules are, and how seamlessly they have been integrated with the back-office. Alternatively, how feasible would the integration with third-party products be? While vendors' corporate viability remains a crucial factor in any selection process, it seems as though the most of major ERP players are going to be around for a significantly long time to come.

Ask the Experts Question: Do Organizations Really Need a Physical Data Warehouse Structure?
We recently had a question from one of our readers (through our Ask the Experts page) discussing QlikView’s approach to data collection.Reader’s Question
the increasingly use of 64-bit processors and hardware with new scalable and massive parallel processing (MPP) capabilities, it is now possible to store bigger amounts of data in memory and take advantage of their process speed. In traditional data warehouses, the query goes to the database, grabs the information directly from a hard disk, and loads the results into memory. With in-memory tools, all information, or at least a very big portion of it, is stored directly in memory—so all query processes
AMD Earnings Beat the Street! Intel Earnings Beat the Street?
Both Intel and AMD announced earnings that handily beat Wall Street estimates – on the surface. Do the numbers symbolize a new trend in the CPU market?
expected $500M vs. actual $640M) and a picture of operational weakness starts to appear. Although Intel is clearly trying to stake out a major portion of the networking market, the problems for its microprocessor business - its bread and butter - must be troubling to management. Market Impact About a year ago, maybe two, everyone thought the CPU wars were over, with Intel the victor. Cyrix was just about dead, and AMD looked like all it could do was deliver lower-priced Intel-like processors. Although
Microsoft to Purchase Softway Systems
Microsoft Corp. announced on September 20th that it will purchase privately held Softway Systems Inc., a developer of Unix/NT interoperability software.
software that will support 64-bit Unix applications on the upcoming (mid-2000) 64-bit Windows, which we believe will further add to Microsoft's strength. Although this will not increase overall market growth, it should lead to market consolidation. Market share for Windows NT is increasing, and the ability to run both types of applications will accelerate that growth. It is less clear whether this move is a direct response to Linux's increasing market presence. Softway's Interix supports the Linux
ERP Demand Being Re-heated
As reported on March 5 in The Dallas Morning News/KRTBN -- E-commerce may get all the attention, but information technology experts say the demand for
hype from reality. The 64,000-dollar question is how functionality rich those new modules are, and how seamlessly they have been integrated with the back-office. Alternatively, how feasible would the integration with third-party products be? Vendors' corporate viability remains a crucial factor in any selection process, and it seems as though the most of major ERP players are going to be around for a significantly long time to come. A piece of advice to consultants: be agile and wary! Make every effort
Compaq to Halt NT on Alpha Development
Compaq Computer Corp. this week laid off roughly 100 engineers responsible for developing Windows NT/2000 on the Alpha platform, several informed sources said.
this announcement also affects 64-bit Windows.] What this means: As mentioned in TEC's note on Alpha ( Compaq's Alpha - Heading Toward Its Omega? August 13, 1999), Compaq had shown little commitment to making Alpha NT a viable product set. This latest development is the other shoe which was waiting to fall. This decision indicates that Compaq no longer views Alpha as anything other than a high-end product. It is unclear whether this strategy is viable for the long term. Although Compaq has stated that
eBay Looking For Sun Block?
The now-infamous 1999 shutdowns of the eBay website has led them to consider alternatives to their current Sun infrastructure.
and Compaq (with its 64- and 96-CPU ProLiant configurations) have beaten up Sun's E10000 (Starfire) server in transaction processing performance. The highly embarrassing outages at eBay provided an opportunity for anyone with a reliability and performance story to take their best shot at prying Sun loose. The Network Solutions A.root server contract loss adds fuel to the Sun is vulnerable fire. If Sun gets displaced at eBay, the perceived impact will be far greater than the actual revenue lost - we can

Time for Yourself, Your Family, and Your PDA Analyst Analogy In the 1996 movie Jerry Maguire, Tom Cruise's character—a workaholic sports agent—decides that he’s had enough of trying to sign as many athletes as possible with his “show me the money” attitude and opts instead for fewer athletes on his roster where he will create a more “personal relationship” with them. He decides to write what he calls his “mission statement”—hoping the other sports agents in his
Fusion ioControl n5 Hybrid Storage Architecture
Conventional hybrid storage solutions use NVRAM (non-volatile RAM/flash) to cache data before writing to disk, then augment performance with an SSD read cache
ioControl n5 Hybrid Storage Architecture Conventional hybrid storage solutions use NVRAM (non-volatile RAM/flash) to cache data before writing to disk, then augment performance with an SSD read cache. While such solutions generally offer acceptable performance for small datasets, they are ultimately limited by the configuration and number of SSDs that can be deployed. In contrast, a hybrid storage approach can leverage PCle-based flash to provide better performance. Read this white paper to better
Dell's 8-CPU Intel Servers Increasing Its Enterprise Focus
Dell began shipping its eight-CPU Intel server, the PowerEdge 8450, in late September. This comes on the heels of Compaq's shipment of its ProLiant 8000 and
IA-32 architecture to Merced's IA-64 architecture. This change will effect much more than hardware, and therefore migration will not be immediate.) Product Strengths Performance and Price/Performance: Dell's record of excellent price/performance is expected to continue with the PE 8450. We expect the only close competition to be from Compaq ($18.46/tpmC for the ProLiant 8500). We also expect Dell to meet or exceed Compaq's mark of 40,368 tpmC (also for the ProLiant 8500) within three months. I/O Feature
Enterprise Applications--The Genesis and Future, Revisited Part Five: More on ERP Evolution
If the ultimate objective is to win and retain customers, one must consider the entire chain, which includes traditional enterprise resource planning (ERP) and
islands of information. The 64,000-dollar question is how all business processes work together. In the electronic world, the degree of flexibility and efficiency of collaborative processes relating to the customer life cycle, product life cycle, and so on, to name but a few, will be a big determinant of losers and winners. As proof of the above might be the fact that the traditional large ERP providers like SAP , PeopleSoft , and Oracle can claim bigger CRM-related revenues than every pure-CRM vendor
KXEN, An Important New Asset in the Evolution of SAP Analytics
A couple of weeks ago when I was on briefed on KXEN, the predictive analytics technology provider, I was completely unaware of the deal that was being struck
Windows 7 32 and 64 bits and, most importantly, InfiniteInsight is natively supported by HANA (figure 2). On the other hand, SAP’s Predictive Analysis approach complements that of KXEN—combining SAP's power with KXEN's simplicity. SAP’s Predictive Analysis solution provides intuitive means for creating predictive models, with capabilities for integrating with other products from SAP’s Analytics stack such as Lumira, SAP’s modern data visualization application. So, KXEN is a perfect fit for
