Web 2.0: “Code Free” Siebel Web Service Integration


One of the most challenging areas in any Siebel implementation has traditionally been setting up and maintaining interfaces between Siebel and other back-end systems. However, it is now possible to create a real-time web service interface to other applications from Siebel 7.8 or 8.0, without writing a single line of code.

Siebel uses 3 different objects to construct a WSDL: Web Services (Inbound and Outbound) which are administered in the Client Application and primarily define the location of the services; Integration Objects which define the structure of the data that will be used in the interface; and Business Services which define the methods and process-oriented components of the WSDL. These can be pre-built (out-of-the-box) or custom. Of course, the custom Business Services would need to be coded, but often Read More

Two Origins, One Destination? A Look at the Two Main Genres of PLM Solution from the Integration Standpoint


There are two major genres of PLM solution: CAD-PLM and ERP-PLM. These two types have different integration capabilities, but the gap between them is shrinking thanks to various factors driving the market. Currently, however, the difference still matters in the solution selection process.

Because of the different development histories, knowledge, and technologies of these two types of PLM, there seem to be differences in the capabilities that fill in the two gaps. To visually illustrate the differences, I randomly selected from the Technology Evaluation Centers (TEC) PLM Evaluation Center two PLM solutions from vendors who do not offer CAD products and another two from vendors that are significantly involved in CAD. Comparing the four solutions' scores for CAD integration and Read More

Six Steps to Manage Data Quality with SQL Server Integration Services


Without data that is reliable, accurate, and updated, organizations can’t confidently distribute that data across the enterprise, leading to bad business decisions.

Transactions — Creating a master business entity typically involves consolidating data from multiple source systems. Once you have identified a mechanism to bridge and cleanse the data, you can begin to categorize the entity based on the types of transactions or activities that the entity is involved in. When you work with transaction data, you will often need to collect and merge your data before building it into your MDM solution. Building Read More

The Seven Types of Power Problems


Many of the mysteries of equipment failure, downtime, software, and data corruption are the result of a problematic power supply. Compounding the problem is that there is no standardized way to describe power problems.

Unfortunately, different terminology has been used to describe many of the existing power disturbances, which creates confusion and makes it more difficult to effectively discuss, study, and make changes to today's power quality problems.
