Radio Frequency Identification (RFID)

Radio frequency identification (RFID) criteria cover tags and storage devices, readers, wireless hubs and servers, and the middleware necessary for evaluating an RFID system deployment. RFID systems are used in different situations that require the tracking of unique items. RFID tags, in the context of enterprise resource planning and supply chain management, make items visible from manufacturing through distribution. RFID tags may be used to carry basic information such as an address, to more complex information used at different stages of an assembly line.

Strategic Considerations for Evaluating Enterprise Performance Management Solutions


Consolidation in the enterprise performance management (EPM) market has led to a glut of misleading, and sometimes overstated, vendor claims.

Find out what you need to know before you start evaluating EPM solutions for your organization.

While evaluation of solutions from the incumbent ERP vendor seems a logical step, Read More

Today, the issue of regulatory compliance touches every enterprise, and process manufacturers are no exception.

Evaluating Enterprise Software - Business Process or Feature/Function-Based Approach? All the above, Perhaps?


Owing to learning from the past experiences and to the help of specialized selection service providers, selecting an enterprise package has to a degree, become a routine occurrence in the life of an IT organization. Recently however, there has been much noise created by some pundits and vendors belittling the supposedly "archaic" way of selecting software through functions and features. Contrary to that, they would rather sell "business processes" or "solutions," further confusing the already overwhelmed customer. The nagging doubts and questions like "Have we been selecting software the wrong way all this time?!" naturally abound.

evaluating and selecting enterprise solutions  structured, repeatable process for evaluating technology solutions and the vendors that provide them. Most business managers, whether within vendors, prospective clients or implementers/resellers, have long yearned for an enabling repository system to minimize project risk for all sides of technology utilization.

Clients benefit because Read More

Evaluating Enterprise Software - Business Process or Feature/Function-Based Approach? All the above, Perhaps? Part Two


There is certainly room to ask the fundamental question of whether the traditional practice of RFI/RFP-based selection processes has been adequate for the task of selecting complex systems.

Selecting PLM Software Solutions


Past experience shows us that the vast majority of enterprise technology evaluations run over time and budget, and once selected, the majority of the implementations fail to meet functional, return on investment (ROI) and total cost of ownership (TCO) expectations. Enterprise technology selections for ERP, CRM, SCM, and other enterprise applications provide valuable lessons that can be applied to selecting PLM software, but there are some key differences that need to be recognized.

evaluating and selecting enterprise solutions  required functionality. Finding and evaluating these small, specialty vendors can be a challenge but can provide big returns in terms of increased product functionality. Finally, PLM solutions are oriented around product innovation processes as opposed to transactions. This difference means that requirements can not be as easily defined objectively, and more objective opinions from experienced users is likely to be required, particularly in the areas of design tools.
