Network Associates Hopes to Rekindle the Flame

Since NAI's WebShield security appliance is based on Gauntlet, it too suffers the same technical challenges found in Gauntlet. User Recommendations Clients that already have Gauntlet or other Network Associates products in place, or are making a major Network Associates product acquisition, can examine Gauntlet as a part of the larger deal, but negotiate hard on price. Those organizations making a new Read More

No Yawn Intended: Enterprise Applications Giant Introduces a Mid-tier Support Choice
Many market observers might yawn at SAP's recent Premium Support announcement, but users increasingly appreciate more choice and certainty, and may take notice

In any case, software customers want to be able to contact a qualified expert to discuss the issue and resolve it in a timely fashion, with minimal impact on their business—and they do not really care whether the issue arises from a bug or from user error or ignorance. Software vendors need to provide unlimited access to support services that include experts who are trained in detecting and fixin Read More
Microsoft Office 2000 SR-1 Adds Dysfunction to the Windows Family

Oracle Sails Slower In The Low Tide, But Mayday Signal Is Quite Far-Fetched

The 11i product release was no exception - over a few thousand of patches have been reportedly requested by early customers and subsequently released. Ironically, the latest product release, 11i.3, while perceived as stable and much improved over its previous incarnations, may suffer from the bad timing of the release. Namely, the customers' weariness and Read More

Microsoft .NET-managed Code Enablement: Examples and Challenges
Intuitive, Visibility, and Epicor offer .NET Framework-managed code products, but their

Such.NET-managed code systems will be easier to install and administer, and therefore cheaper to own over the long haul, and such systems will be easier to secure against hackers. Also, .NET-based systems will be less buggy and better behaved, and blue screen mystery crashes should be a thing of the past. Fewer problems means less wasted time for users and IT professionals, but is that compelling enough at this stage? There is no universal Read More
Will User Enterprises Ever Get onto an Easy (Support and Maintenance) Street?

Today, people accept bugs and problems in software because it is the way this industry has always worked and otherwise, it would probably be so costly that there would not be an industryand it will stay like this for a long time given the increasing appetite of people for cheap and disposable goods and services. To be fair to vendors, we also agree with the fact that some users have a devil-may-care attitude toward implementing and using their software. One comment even went so far as to state tha Read More
Supporting Teamwork by Abridging Departmental Silos (and All That in a Cloud)
According to the adage “When one door closes, another one opens,” there are opportunities and unfulfilled customer needs even in this dour economic environment.

In his search for available solutions, Johnson found that there were some decent help desk applications for customer service advisors (agents)  and bug-tracking applications for product developers, but there were no systems designed for both groups to use. For example, the well-known Bugzilla bug-tracking software  is not aware of who the customer is. After doing a thorough market search, the company was not able to find anything Read More

Big Bangs are misleading in their promise of once and it's done benefits as investments made to remedy problems can quickly outweigh anticipated savings.

Productivity for Software Estimators
Presently, software estimation is considered to be an art rather than a science. At the heart of this perception is the lack of understanding of the concept of

Code review — walking through code written by another programmer, deciphering its functionality, and trying to predict the possible errors that the customer might come across when using the software. Testing — trying to unearth all the defects that could be left in the software. However, it is an accepted fact within the industry that finding 100 percent of the defects is impossible. Furthermore, testing 100 percent of the software is an impractical endeav Read More

Going forward, as new versions of hardware and software are implemented in a customer's environment, continued use of the stabilized product will become difficult to the degree of being untenable.

IBM has the stated intent of revisiting the stabilization issue with existing Inform Read More
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

In the period of time between implementation and the time the bug is identified and a patch released and applied data is at risk. It is advantageous to keep all of these time periods to a minimum. The initial time period (between implementation and discovery of the bug) is proportional to the number of users on the system and the complexity of Read More

Ok, I know what you are thinking: not in our shop! People are very reluctant to admit that there might be problems like these in their systems.

Vanilla Essence In my experience, the common argument given for choosing super-flexible or customized software is misleading. The argument says that with better flexibility, you will have the ability to do whatever you need. But it doesn’t work out that way. The resources to make changes are limited, and the result is that while all things are Read More
