Some Belated Insights from, well, Deltek Insight 2010 - Part 1


The month of May is usually the high season of software vendors’ conferences, but mid-May 2010 was a bit extreme: I was invited to four major user conferences that took place on or about the same dates all over the United States (US). Given that cloning and teleporting technologies are decades away from us, I had to minimize the “damage” by at least picking two events that

Deltek and Maconomy: Gearing Up for the Global Service Economy?


Both the “old” Deltek (pre-2005) and “new” Deltek (from 2005 on) have not been strangers to acquisitions, but these were largely well thought-out and appetizing (“nip in”) purchases of smaller companies that had either an attractive piece of technology or install base (or both). However, in early June 2010, immediately after its Insight 2010 user conference, Deltek

Part 1 of this blog series started with me lamenting my inability to attend the Deltek Insight 2010 conference. However, I recently had an in-depth post-event recap instead with Deltek’s in-the-know staff members.

Deltek, We Hardly Knew Ye: New Deltek at Insight 2011


Deltek has been a software provider that does the job as promised (and more), but the company and its products, with its focus on government contracting, have never been associated with "cool" and "exciting." What a difference a year can make! Technology Evaluation Centers (TEC) Principal Analyst P.J. Jakovljevic reports on the changes Deltek has been making, and speaks with some top execs about its strategy.

With Costpoint 7, Deltek reportedly leveraged feedback from human factors experts to redesign the UI (using the AJAX and Adobe Flex tools) Read More

Banking Industry's Fair Value Accounting (FVA) Conundrum


Every company and almost every individual holds fixed assets. Over time, these assets change in value. For example, real estate tends to increase in value, while vehicle values decrease.

Acronyms Can Simplify Your Life, or Drive You Insane


Acronyms seem really convenient, at first. It’s great using ERP instead of enterprise resource planning, for example. You save precious time (not typing enterprise resource planning a million times) and there’s no way your reader won’t understand what ERP means, right?

How Not-for-profit Organizations Can Reduce Costs and Practice Better Financial Management with Microsoft Dynamics GP


One of the biggest “time-wasters” in not-for-profit organizations is the constant reentry of data from one system to another. For example, many organizations must manually reenter information from their fundraising applications to their accounting systems.
