Progress Exchange 2013 Part One: What's the Current State of Progress?
By P.J. Jakovljevic (see bio) and Bob Eastman (see bio)As it has been excruciatingly painful for die-hard Boston Red Sox fans to watch their moribund

It is tough to overlook the almost certain internal effect that this transition has had on Progress. The

Is Kenandy Turning into a Manufacturing Workday?


In anticipation of the upcoming Dreamforce 2013 mega conference by salesforce.com, we recently had an intro briefing with Kenandy’s top brass. The new company’s chairman and chief executive officer (CEO) is Sandra “Sandy” Kurtzig, an enterprise software industry pioneer who founded former ASK Computer Systems with the veteran enterprise resource planning (ERP) product ManMan in 1972, and helped

Kenandy considers SAP, Oracle, NetSuite , and “do-nothing” as its main competition, and is dismissive of Rootstock and Plex as being too plant-centric and ignoring global financial applications (that lack of strong global financials will likely be their downfall, as it was in ManMan’s case). In the early days of ERP software, the CFO always made the decision. As ERP rose in importance, manufacturing got to make the decision, and then as CRM became key, it was the VP of sales.

Can Software Help Employees Enjoy their Workdays (more)? - Part 3


Part 1 of this blog series described the genesis and current state of affairs of Workday – a novel company that was founded in March 2005 and launched in November 2006 by two great IT minds and PeopleSoft alumni: Dave Duffield and Aneel Bhusri. Part 2 of this series then got under the hood and analyzed Workday’s secret sauce: its object-oriented and in-memory database (IMDB) and definitional

cost of production salesforce  establishment to justify the cost of ripping the old system out. Workday's architecture could permit its offering to be that much better, which is why I was impressed. The company has yet to fully take advantage of what it has, but there is some chance that it will eventually do so. So Workday is already several years ahead of the “old school” incumbent vendors with a vastly superior value proposition. The company won't be able to roll through the market the way SAP and others did in the early 1990s, Read More

Getting a More Exact Picture of, well, Exact Software Americas - Part 2

In addition, these companies are often family ran businesses that can recoil (and do something else) in quieter times and regenerate when required. Recently, these shops Read More

Production Management Research


Primarily due to rapid development of technology in the past thirty years, the market structure throughout the world has changed considerably. Local markets have become accessible to foreign manufacturers, who are able to perform well in their newly established territories in part due to their superior application of technology. In this light, most companies, including small and medium size, have embedded globalization in their expansion strategies, consistently seeking for new markets abroad.

This document describes these approaches to production planning in detail as well outlines a software solution.

CRM Selections: When An Ounce Of Prevention Is Worth A Pound Of Cure Part One: The CRM Selection Challenge


Two of the greatest challenges IT decision makers face when selecting a CRM package is first, having a comprehensive understanding of their functional and technical requirements and second, identifying the vendors that best match their requirements.
