Selectica Joins NetSuite’s Configure-Price-Quote Fray

Employee Performance Management: Making It a Reality in Your Organization


Over 90 percent of human resources (HR) professionals rate employee performance management (EPM) as a top priority. Yet considerably fewer have EPM systems deployed within their organizations, mostly because of concerns about presenting a persuasive case for such projects to executive management. However, a structured approach to selecting, planning for, and implementing an EPM solution can help alleviate those concerns.

A guide to the benefits, technology and implementation essentials of CRM & SFA solutions


Companies spend staggering investments to make and keep their offerings competitive. By providing a centralized location to store account history and detailed contact information for every buyer and automating what had been manual tasks, sales force automation (SFA) and customer relationship management (CRM) have begun to positively impact sales efforts.

As an example to show how technology is not a process but a way of automating a process, consider a manufacturing company not meeting production targets.

With a flawed process introducing automation will Read More

Configuration Guide: Managing Virtual Servers Using a Virtual Machine Manager and a Clustered File System


Virtual data centers must enable increased physical server use and central management of virtual machine infrastructure.

Extending COBOL to SOA, Web Services, and Beyond: A Look at the Architecture with a Mainframe Perspective


In the rush to explore the “next big thing” in software technology, it’s easy to forget the huge investment you’ve already made in mainframe assets. These assets have performed the business functions that they were designed for, but it’s OK to remain open to new solutions too. By leveraging existing assets while moving to a service-based architecture, you can extend your existing business resources while saving money.

A Short Guide to a Faster WAN


Wide area networks (WANs) are essential to the majority of businesses, enabling effective communications within the organization and with customers, partners, and suppliers. As more bandwidth-intensive applications are added to the mix, these networks are expected to handle the extra load—which can decrease its performance. Ensuring WAN usage is well-managed eliminates unwanted traffic and accelerates business activity.

What Makes a Good IT White Paper Good… and a Bad IT White Paper Very, Very Bad…


A white paper is a document or “brief” (and yes, perhaps unfortunately, I mean “brief” in the sense of something that informs rather than something that is short—white papers are sometimes as concise as newspaper editorials, or run as long as the latest “… For Dummies” book; examples of this will be provided in upcoming posts).

A white paper’s purpose is to educate the reader, who is the potential customer/consumer of a particular industry’s service or product. The author of the white paper aims not just to inform readers, but also to persuade them to clamor after said service or product. Or, at the very least, readers are encouraged to consider the product’s use and benefits—information which may help in making key business decisions. Read More

A Traditional "Local Touch" Leader Espouses a More Global Vision


Rather than pursuing the usual route and writing our opinions and analyses of major market trends and then giving the pertinent vendors a chance for a factual review and feedback, we’ve done the opposite, and have asked different vendors about their opinions and their approaches to market trends. Sage is the most recent vendor to join this discussion.

Facing A Selection? Try A Knowledge-Based Matchmaker Part 4: User Recommendations


This tutorial identifies the significance of researching technology vendors to both buyers and vendors/VARs. Buyers require research to determine the short list and vendors/VARs can use research to assess the viability of opportunities before committing time and money to a sales effort. Since a 'one-size-fits-all' product is still not a viable solution for most clients, the ability of technology products to meet clients' needs depends on client requirements. The Catch 22 for both buyers and vendors/VARs is to pinpoint the right match in this ongoing 'dating game'.

example of a price model template  Part 3 - Presents examples of applying the Solution Part 4 - Makes User Recommendations User Recommendations Perhaps the most important take away from this analysis is the significance of buyers researching technology vendors before determining the short list, while vendors/VARs should research the viability of the opportunity beforehand. Issuing a comprehensive Request For Information (RFI) to a number of vendors is an important first step in the selection process. Once the RFIs have been returned, Read More

Leveraging Technology to Maintain a Competitive Edge During Tough Economic Times -- A Panel Discussion Analyzed Part Six: Custom Development and Single-Vendor versus Multi-Vendor


As componentization and Web services mature, packaged software will be less rigid and easier to adjust to unique practices-- thereby gaining some of the benefit of the custom approach. Although an enterprise can generate many benefits from standardization, it may also create other issues that may often result in disruptions.

However, when enterprises are trying to do something unique, and there is no good packaged software, they will have to develop custom applications. One example to justify custom development is a TV shopping channel provider. With only a few other companies playing in that sandbox, no vendor could justify developing software for this limited marketplace. Read More
