Body Shop to Mind Shop: Businesses Look for More from Third-party Consultants


IT departments rarely have the luxury of spare capacity or sufficient knowledge of all the products and technologies that the rest of the organization expects. However, IT is an integral part of most companies, and supporting diverse or specialized technologies and understanding their impact on the business is necessary. Organizations not only need third parties—they need them to be focused and cost-effective. Learn more.

Smaller companies with fewer IT staff may struggle to understand the implications of specific new technologies or make informed decisions about product selection.

Progress Exchange 2013 Part Two: Will Pacific be Progress Software’s PaaS to Relevance?


By P.J. Jakovljevic (see bio) and Bob Eastman (see bio) Last week in the TEC blog, we discussed Progress Software’s history and current focus.

E-procurement: From Brilliant Innovation to Common Cliché


Electronic procurement has moved from a nice idea to a stampede in just a few years. Growing at Internet speed it spawns business models faster than the market can reasonably evaluate them.

Ideally a standard would develop as a large vocabulary of tag and schemas that apply across industries, with each industry able to produce its own specialized dialects. This is one of the goals that Microsoft was shooting for in its BizTalk initiative, with the exception that Microsoft was looking for market forces to develop standards based on use. We think that Read More
