They do it like that in the Balkans -- Select and deploy ERP, I mean (Part I)


The launch of TEC’s blog has somewhat coincided with my visit to Belgrade, Serbia (what used to be Yugoslavia and then Serbia @ Montenegro) for personal reasons. Those several days spent in my homeland in late October/early November (whereby I missed my beloved Boston Red Sox’ winning the MLB World Series ’07 Championship, darn it!) I at least used this time to also learn about the enterprise

Baan And SSA GT Merge To Form A Mid-Market Empire With An ''Iron Side''


Should Baan and Ironside learn from their new senior sibling SSA GT how to consistently produce stellar financial results and profitability while proceeding with the launch of the next-generation product releases and integration platforms that could in turn cater for SSA GT's aged products' technology rejuvenation needs, the market could witness the creation of another enterprise application powerhouse that is focused solely on manufacturing.

'Collaborative Commerce': ERP, CRM, e-Proc, and SCM Unite! A Series Study: SAP AG


SAP AG has seemingly crossed a strategy chasm, from a strict, stodgy, Not-Invented-Here (NIH) approach to software development and delivery, to a seemingly quite open approach of broad development alliances, company acquisitions, Internet portals development, and a deep, new relationship with IBM for both technology sharing as well as bolstering IBM Consulting’s support for SAP’s new multiple mySAP.com™ initiatives. 'Collaborative' and 'SAP' were not two words you might have ever seen in the same article. You’re seeing it now.

Coficab Group Standardizes on Infor LN for Automotive

Infor LN for Automotive is designed to facilitate the standardization of systems and easier reporting throughout Coficab Group.
