Mining & Quarrying


Mining is the extraction from the earth of materials used in different human activities (industry, trade, energy production, etc.). There are four major types of materials: precious metals and minerals (gold, diamonds, silver, etc.); materials used to produce energy (coal, uranium, etc.); base metals (copper, iron, etc.); and building materials (stone, sand, gravel) extracted from quarries, which are open-pit mines. There are two major types of activities specific to the mining industry: exploration, which involves the search for materials; and extraction, which is the activity of getting those materials out of the earth.

Find Out How Much You Should be Paying (and Earning) with PayScale


Seattle-based software vendor PayScale has created a tool that evaluates salaries per industry, job type, geography, etc. and delivers this information to employers so they can determine what would be a “fair” salary for their employees. I recently had a demo with PayScale where Tim Low and Karaka Leslie showed me some of the functionality and shed light on how their offering contributes to compensation management for organizations.

APICS 2009 Convention: Day 3


Today’s general session showcased people from around the world (Mexico, China, Italy, South Africa, Poland, India, Egypt, US, etc.) and their stories about what work in manufacturing and supply chain means to them. The idea behind this was to show us how supply chain concepts are being embraced worldwide—and the presenters did it by showing media clips and images from different continents.

The Players of Software-as-a-Service Business Models and Finding the Best Value Propositions


Although the promise of reduced implementation risk and time, lower upfront costs, etc. justify the hosting/ASP model, this brings an entire new set of issues for mid-market organizations to consider when seeking a vendor company using such an approach.

Look for the following characteristics among the hosting vendor/ASP candidate providers: Amenability to reasonable Read More

Sneak Peek: Enterprise Software 2013


The following forces and information technology (IT) trends will continue to shape 2013: 1. Cloud Computing While cloud computing is becoming mainstream, hybrid cloud–on-premises configurations (a.k.a., “software plus services” and “connected services”) remains the reality for cloud integration and federated cross-cloud security issues. Organizations are increasingly looking to hybrid cloud

etc s.r.o.  that Oracle, IBM DB2, etc. will add in-memory–type capabilities to their traditional relational databases, and the hybrid structure database will be born. The reality is that there will be lots of hybrid type of environments where multiple applications are not designed for an in-memory database designDatabase vendors will have to respond to the existence of HANA with a hybrid database solution (i.e., side-by-side relational and in-memory parts, with data moving between them), which in turn will affect Read More

Workday to Tackle Talent Acquisition


One of the major announcements at the recently held Workday Rising 2012 conference was that Workday will develop its own talent acquisition suite from scratch and deliver it  in early 2014. This is a major departure from the vendor’s signature policy not to announce any vaporware. But, during the Workday Technology Summit (which preceded the conference), Workday executives said they needed to make

etc s.r.o.  background checks, social recruiting, etc. Current ATS are rigid, complex, hard to use, and designed primarily for compliance. Historically, these technologies have done an inadequate job of helping companies collaboratively manage the recruiting process from start to finish, and as a result, managers often use cumbersome spreadsheets to make up for system shortcomings. Workday already has the applicant object and basic ATS capabilities (hiring requisitions, etc.). But the upcoming Workday Recruiting Read More

Plateau as a Service for Talent Management


Being a human resources (HR) and customer relationship management (CRM) analyst is definitely a privilege. I get to follow the trends from these two different business areas, which (incidentally) have many things in common: employees are a company’s internal customers, recruiting is campaign management for the workforce, privacy data about customers and employees is equally sensitive, etc.

etc s.r.o.  employees is equally sensitive, etc. Another thing HR and CRM have in common is the rapid change from traditional tools—mostly used to create and manage information—to new products adapted to the newer ways of doing business (e.g., software as a service (SaaS), application exchange, social media, etc.). What Does Plateau Have to do With This? Plateau started as a learning management system (LMS) vendor fourteen years ago and realized that it was in a good position to move into the talent management Read More

Who Needs Enterprise Asset Management (EAM) Anyway?


What is EAM? As the acronym implies, EAM is used to manage assets in a company, which can be a module in an enterprise resource planning (ERP) solution or a standalone product. EAM is also known as computerized maintenance management system (CMMS), or computerized maintenance management information system (CIMMS), and it is a software package used to plan, control, and monitor assets from

etc s.r.o.  as vehicles, machinery, buildings, etc. There are exceptions when non-tangible assets are managed for industries such as IT or media. Another thing worth mentioning is the value and the importance of the assets you intend to manage using EAM. If you have 50 computers, a few printers, and a fax machine, an EAM solution will not be very helpful. Of course, companies using vehicle fleets or heavy machinery will find it very useful. Who Offers EAM? There are business software vendors who specialize in EAM ( Read More

Dreamforce 2010: Of Cloud Proliferation - Part 2


Part 1 of this blog series talked about my attendance of Dreamforce 2010, salesforce.com’s annual user conference, which has over the past several years become a highly anticipated and entertaining end-of-the-year fixture for enterprise applications market observers. My post concluded that while Dreamforce 2009 was mostly about continued growth of the cloud computing

Open APIs will also provide compatibility for applications developed for smartphone and mobile devices .

Do You Want Your App to Talk Back to You (as a Chatterbox)? - Part 3


In Part 1 of this blog series I admitted to being a late adopter of a sort, in part for not immediately jumping onto the social media bandwagon. In particular, my initial reaction to Salesforce Chatter (a.k.a. Collaboration Cloud) was tepid when it was introduced at the Dreamforce 2009 conference. However, a few months have passed and this period has helped salesforce.com craft the much clearer

JR: Yes, but Chatter also helps as explained above. PJ: How I understood you, Chatterbox only uses Chatter as a platform, not Force.com (and I always thought Chatter was an intrinsic part of Force.com)? You still need to flesh out any pricing data on Chatterbox, and also, what other usage scenarios do you envision (other than those that are related to Read More
