Web 2.0: “Code Free” Siebel Web Service Integration


One of the most challenging areas in any Siebel implementation has traditionally been setting up and maintaining interfaces between Siebel and other back-end systems. However, it is now possible to create a real-time web service interface to other applications from Siebel 7.8 or 8.0, without writing a single line of code.

IFS Study on Enterprise 2.0: Businesses Aren’t Really Interested?


IFS has just published a short report unveiling the results of a study conducted with Advantage Business Media. Research analyst Aleksey Osintsev looks at the findings and speculates about what it says about ERP users, even while clearly social ERP is here to stay.

There could be two possibilities: The study methodology isn’t perfect and allows significant fluctuations of responses. This is probably not the case.

Function Points: Are They Really the Right Unit of Measure for Software Sizing?


Function points (FPs) are the most popular unit of measure for measuring the size of software. But because FPs were developed in the 1970s, are they not now outdated for today’s event-oriented programming and multi-tiered software architectures?

Even reports are displayed on screen, with a facility to print them out on a printer if desired. EI and EO are elementary processes, where data crosses either into or out of the system boundary. EQ—also known as external inquiry —explicitly mentions an input and an output. Today all applications are event-driven, meaning there is always an input associated with every process. Read More

The Quest for the Right Self-service Model: Enterprise Content Management Suite or Integrated Best-of-breed?


Organizations are looking for self-service models to manage their internal and external content. Content management systems are the answer, but then the question becomes which to choose—an all-in-one enterprise content management suite, or an integrated, best-of-breed point solution?

The CEO, CFO, and TCO
