ROI for RFID: A Case Study Part Two: Implementation and Results


If companies are to find value in radio frequency identification (RFID), they need to view this technology as more than eliminating the scanning gun from the barcode equation. Companies considering implementing RFID must think beyond the confines of the four walls of the plant and factory in order to take full advantage the benefits that this type of technology has to offer. However, as is with any emerging technology, the bottom line is to only implement RFID when the ROI justifies it.

Oracle Makes A U-Turn At The 'All Things To All People' Exit


Oracle has been trying hard for some time to find a magic formula to revive its declining applications revenue.

At first glance, the white paper thus seems to veer into I-have-no-real-reason-to-write-this territory. Editor B (the nominally cranky one) My first glance has yielded a similar response. I couldn’t help but think that there was a lot of talk and, well, not a Read More

Meeting Intuit at Dreamforce 2012


Whether pandering to their voting blocks, politicians in this election cycle often say that most innovation takes place in small businesses.

The ERP Market 2001 And Beyond - Aging Gracefully With The ‘New Kids On The Block’

Easy ERP: A Challenge to Conventional Thinking


There is a new paradigm when it comes to evaluating ERP systems. With little difference between industry players' solutions, the key is the longevity of the system, its usability, and total cost of ownership.

It seems that nobody is interested in cool gizmos and new product features these days. It's all about risk management and which product is the next to be discontinued. Does it matter which product—JD Edwards, PeopleSoft, or Oracle, is better? I don't think so. Product benefits are so similar that the only real differentiation is expected product longevity. Longevity is the biggest Read More

My recent series on Quantum Retail presented the many difficult merchandise range and assortment planning issues that retailers face, and the ensuing tough decisions that they have to continually make in that regard.
