IBM Jumps on the Linux Bandwagon with Both Feet, Sort Of
IBM is refocusing its corporate-wide Internet software efforts around Linux, creating a new Linux Group within the Enterprise Server Division.

great migrations narrator  Microsoft is in any great danger from this announcement alone. However, present indications are that Windows 2000 (Win2K) will have a slower-than-originally-expected adoption rate (matching its slower-than-originally-expected development) - a combination of this with Linux's market increase may spell real trouble for Redmond with the next 18 months. IBM's present support of four of the big Linux vendors (Caldera, Red Hat, SuSE, TurboLinux) indicates Linux has become strategic, as opposed to a point

Ambitious Plans and Promises: How Will the Market Respond to One Enterprise Software Provider’s Offerings?


The market should commend Infor’s attempt to combine business-specific solutions from a partner like IBM. If nothing else, the fact that Infor can provide integrated and best-in-class offerings poises the vendor to become serious competition for such giants as SAP and Oracle.

great migrations narrator  sound economic (i.e., the great revenue potential from the several thousand existing Baan IV and V customers worldwide) and strategic reasons (i.e., Infor envisions Baan and LN as platform rather than mature enterprise resource planning (ERP) products, having viable future road maps, including SOA bus and enhancements), as well as to create goodwill (press relations). At first, Infor may have been tempted to enable migrations to Infor ERP LN 6.1 , but it is likely the vendor has realized that the Read More

Siemens’ Active Workspace Handles PLM Data Complexity


Today, many companies have massive amounts of information generated from their product lifecycle processes currently lying dormant, often spread across many sites, departments, and divisions, and located in several different unconnected databases. This information overload, resulting from the increasing speed, variety, and volume of data coming from multiple sources, could and should be used to

IBM and Partners Load the Guns in Europe


IBM has launched a service provider initiative in Europe, a move that underlines the growing trend to 'coopetition' behavior among service providers and technology partners; however, it will be on a scale much vaster than the one-on-one relationships that have been the vogue for the past couple of years. The implications of a partnership between a legacy giant and emerging new players are worldwide.

It actually has the technology to deploy and service to back it up, both on a global scale. It is also the major hardware infrastructure supplier for most companies of any size, worldwide. In setting up its partnership program, IBM makes no bones about its capabilities, and is willing to share those capabilities with its partners. In a joint announcement with Read More

Infor ION-izes its Open SOA Strategy - Part 1


2010 has certainly been an interesting (if not a crossroads) year for Infor. Namely, after a number of new high-profile hires at the beginning of the year, which signalled Infor’s intention to be taken seriously, the vendor then entered an eerily quieter period of several months. Except for the ongoing vocal marketing campaign entitled “Down with Big ERP” with witty

great migrations narrator  in-between, who knows? “Tastes Great but Less Filling?” If Infor ION is a brand new technology strategy, that could suggest that Infor has not actually been delivering integrated  service oriented architecture (SOA)  solutions. Some Infor ERP solutions like Adage or LN (former Baan ) had some historical hard-coded integrations, but those were very limited in terms of service-oriented integrations. On the other hand, if this strategy is similar to past SOA strategies, customers will have to upgrade Read More

Return on Investment for Automatic Time and Labor Management


Card auditing and calculating takes a great deal of time, particularly for companies using full-time time-keepers to calculate and audit time cards. If the time cards are handwritten, it takes even more time to review, calculate, edit, and (typically) re-enter the data into a payroll system. However, automation reduces audit time by pre-processing punches against rules defined within the system.
