Reducing the Cost of Systems Operations


Disintermediation is the process of removing redundant intermediaries from a systems management infrastructure. Once vital to systems monitoring, proprietary agents are now made largely redundant by native management tools, emerging standards and agentless monitoring architectures. Centauri makes disintermediation possible by providing a low-cost event management solution that unifies performance data and event messages under a common umbrella. This paper describes how you can take advantage of the disintermediation opportunity and minimize the risks of migrating from working proprietary data collectors to a new native-agent based solution.

event organising proposal writing  The availability of high-function/low-cost event management tools - such as Centauri Business Service Manager - has changed this situation. But perhaps the most significant impetus for change is the economic recession, forcing organizations to question the adage that if it ain't broke, don't fix it . Today, many organizations are paying high maintenance fees for expensive proprietary performance management tools that are actually functionally inferior to the native management tools they get for free.

Software Selection Processes-Accelerating Vendor Identification


Software selection is complex and time-consuming. Taking shortcuts or skipping steps in the process increases the risk of making the wrong choice. But attending a virtual trade show can accelerate the selection process, increase vendor interaction, and reduce this risk.

event organising proposal writing  every industry hosts an event like this; not all software vendors may be present, and the timing of the trade show may not coincide with this step in your selection process—or you may not have the travel budget or time to take advantage of the event. An easier way to accelerate this step of the process is to attend a virtual trade show. During the Internet boom years of 1998 to 1999, online trade show software was developed. Conceived as a way to replicate the physical trade show and to deliver the Read More

Real Time in the Real World: How Event-driven Software Makes Content Relevant and Actionable


Purchasers have learned a great deal over the years about the digital signage medium. Simply scheduling a playlist of content does not provide value to the network sponsor or operator.

This is the key to providing the right message to the right person at the right time. Download this white paper to learn more.

Instead of Discounting, Back Some Value Out of Your Proposal


Last minute discounting has become so prevalent that many companies have come to depend on it as their default sales strategy. Employing a go-to-market strategy of being the lowest cost provider is one thing, but dramatic, tactical discounting on every deal will erode your company's margins and leave you digging a deeper and deeper hole in which your company will ultimately bury itself.

Will Recent Acquisition Catalyze Catalyst’s Strategy? Part One: Event Summary


For years, Catalyst International was a leading public WMS/SCE vendor before missteps by its previous management team caused serious problems in strategy and execution. Over the past few years Catalyst's turnaround strategy has returned it to growth and profitability. As a result, it has recently been acquired by ComVest, a wealthy, private investment firm. This development may indicate private equity investors' renewed interest in this market and might validate the company's turnaround strategy that began in late 2001. Still, the question remains whether the anticipated infusion of capital from ComVest will enable Catalyst to become a consolidator and rejoin its mightier direct competitors in the industry's upper echelon.

Part One: Event Summary Event Summary The long predicted consolidation within the warehouse management systems/supply chain execution (WMS)/ (SCE) market seems finally to be happening, albeit behind schedule. Yet, the pathway to consolidation has proceeded along a somewhat unexpected route, and the key players have not always been the usual suspects. Namely, instead of a direct intra-market consolidation, some public SCE/WMS vendors —or smaller, even profitable but Read More
