Are ASP Applications Right for You? Part 2: Decision Criteria


Whether an application is best implemented as an ASP provided application or service, built in-house or purchased, generally depends on the same criteria as what would be used for outsourcing a function or process. This part details that criteria.

How Can IT Help Competitiveness These Bleak Days? - Part 2


Part 1 of this blog series introduced the SAP-sponsored expert panel discussion that explored reasons to maintain IT investments even during difficult economic times. The Harvard Business Review (HBR) article by Andrew McAfee and Erik Brynjolfsson entitled “Investing in the IT That Makes a Competitive Difference" was the main supplement and starting point of the discussion.

We actually held physical, open-to-the-public design meetings when we began the project in San Francisco. Some of those people are still with the project today.

Software as a Service: Not without Caveats


Software-as-a-service solutions often cannot provide that final twenty percent or so that differentiates a company from its competitors. Of major concern is whether off-premise applications can support complex, global organizations on a constant basis and on strict service level agreements.

However, after a certain period of time, the subscribed-to system will begin to cost more than an in-house production system would, and the customer has no ownership of anything at the end of the day.

Will MS try the "Open Source" Gambit with WinCE? Why Not - Nothing Else Seems to Work


In what may be another attempt to gain some kind of foothold in the handheld and embedded-OS market, rumors are floating that Microsoft will open the source code for Windows CE.

It would be a mistake to release an embedded-Linux as buggy as some Windows releases - the same rules of acceptance/usage will not apply to Linux as they did to Windows. A subtext to the handheld market battle is the belief that many corporations will increase the ubiquity of handhelds, thereby resulting in a new growth spurt for this market. Although Read More
