What's Wrong With Application Software? Business Changes, Software Must Change with the Business.


Business changes constantly in small ways and large. It is rare to find an application product that can change once it is implemented. This gap is a reality leading to dissatisfaction and the application being a drag on the business. This gap, the lack of the ability to change, costs the business dearly. Software needs to be the agent of change, not the enemy of change.

application to the principal  Today, the ability for application systems to support the company in remaining competitive usually involves working around the system and waiting for the next release, or implementing a redundant system that over-rides the base ERP system. This leaves companies at a competitive disadvantage because they are continuously suffering from either the opportunity cost of not changing the business, or the operational cost of working around the system—and often a combination of the two. Further, the core Read More

What's Wrong with Application Software? It's the Economics

The Miracle in Detroit: Putting the ROI into ITIL


IT managers understand the difficulty of demonstrating returns on investment for technology projects. The issue is particularly acute for large multiphase deployments, such as IT infrastructure library (ITIL) implementations: massive projects which are hard to sell to management, and which promise returns many years in the future—after significant investment. So how do you get management to buy into your vision?

Tying the Shop Floor to the ERP System


Enterprise resource planning (ERP) on the shop floor is critical. High-performing manufacturers have found that full integration of real-time operational data collected from the shop floor to the top floor is key to reducing costs, streamlining operations, and improving customer satisfaction.

It soon became apparent that if the manufacturing process wasn't efficient, it didn't matter how well the top floor functioned. It wasn't until after companies successfully traversed the dawning of the 21st century that they realized the Read More

Now the Minnows are Eating the Minnows


In a transaction valued at approximately $15 million, DataMirror Corporation has announced that it has completed the acquisition of assets and assumption of certain liabilities of Constellar Corporation. Both companies have been small niche players in the data warehousing market, Constellar being almost exclusively Oracle-based, and DataMirror concentrating on the IBM AS/400.
