In a future blog post, I will share my thoughts on the platform after trying the beta release, which is by the way open for invites.

What's Wrong with Application Software? It's the Economics


Enterprise architecture is a technology problem, not the business problem. The business problem is time, money, and quality. Focusing on modifications as an example, the reason that modifications are bad is that they take too long, cost too much, and often have quality issues.

The new enterprise architecture should consider the user across the entire software lifecycle by giving the Read More

The study estimates that: 12 23% of sales and administrative personnel time is spent correcting invoices, orders, purchase orders, etc. 3 5% of all stock outs, resulting in a loss of sales, are due to data quality issues.

Justification of ERP Investments Part Three: Costs of Implementing an ERP System

Fatal Flaws and Technology Choices


Food and beverage manufacturers rely on information technology to meet market demands. However, food is one market where most enterprise applications show a number of "fatal flaws"—capabilities whose omission can impede operations to the extent of complete failure.

Need for Content Security
