The Case Against Modifying Your Enterprise Software

It is loaded with parameters and safeguards that prevent users from entering incorrect data, violating accounting rules, and otherwise running afoul of established business practices.

Requirements Definition For Package Implementations


How do you go about defining the requirements of large package systems, particularly those with the all-encompassing scope of ERP, EAM, and CRM software, and still satisfy the needs to the project team, the user community, and executive management? It’s a balancing act rivaling the circus performer trying to keep all of the plates spinning at once. While it is difficult to say one aspect of a project plan is more important than another, accurately and completely defining the needs to be fulfilled by the software is critical to the overall success of the implementation and the longevity of software. This article outlines a logical process for defining the requirements and keeping the plates spinning.

As typified with today's ERP software, applications have soft controls, switches, and settings to determine how they function. Additionally, there are fields with variable meanings and purposes.

As depicted below, a progression through these phases should provide users with a Read More

Solomon Stands the Test of Time Despite Changing Masters Part Three: Product Differentiators


Of all the MBS' products, Solomon is apparently the purest in terms of a standard Microsoft technology stack, and without any proprietary additions. Furthermore, its sharp focus solely on Microsoft technology from ground up, coined in ''the power of one'' motto (one OS platform - Windows XP/NT/2000, one database platform - MS SQL Server, one development environment - MS Visual Basic, etc.), also presents an attractive, risk-adverse option for penny-pinching mid-market customers.

Enterprise Information Management: Strategy, Best Practices, and Technologies on Your Path to Success

PC Encryption: Eyes Wide Open


While the virtues of encrypting PC data are extolled by vendors and the press alike, some painful truths go largely unmentioned. Whether necessary for compliance or state breach disclosure law, or for doing business in a state requiring it, encryption is necessary but difficult.

The Work Game that Motivates: The Holy Grail of Change Management

Voting Technology: An Evaluation of Requirements and Solutions
