Business Process Management: How to Orchestrate Your Business
Business process management (BPM), having evolved over the past fifteen years, has finally reached a level of maturity where vendors are now abolishing functional silos to allow the enterprise-wide flow of business processes. It replaces the old, manual system of coordinating activities in a company and improves functionality and effectiveness through modeling, documentation, certification, collaboration, automation, and compliancy to minimize costly errors.

HAMMER: In the eighties, authors Hammer and Champy drew the attention of business managers to process management, process (re-)engineering, and workflow management. Today, BPM is continually gaining ground. Many companies have learned from experience that BPM is a strong asset when facing the rapidly changing requirements that are typical of today s dynamic world. The acronym BPM has been the cause of some confusion in the past. It can be mistaken for business process modeling, which is a subset of the more

Software for Real People Part One: MindManager Feature and Functions
Many software applications are indispensable for the operation and management of the enterprise. They, however, may actually stifle creativity--arguably the most valuable aspect of human capital--by requiring the user to adapt to the tool rather than have the tool supporting the user.

Who Are White Papers Aimed at Anyway—The Technical Professional or the Poor Soul Who Got Stuck With the Job? » The TEC Blog
you ever tried to hammer a nail with a “solution”? “Hey, honey! Pass me the solution, wouldja?” Solutions are your department—given the right tools.” - David Clark I couldn’t have said it better myself. The job of software vendors is to provide the tools . The job of the end user is to apply the solution . “It’s so much easier to suggest solutions when you don’t know too much about the problem.” - Malcolm Forbes I rest my case! If you’re in the market for enterprise software and

Software for Real PeoplePart Two: Competition and User Recommendations
The root of creativity rests in the people, the management, and the culture of the organization. A better tool will not help an organization that is resistant to change and stifles creativity. It is important to remember that while management can solve a technical problem, technology will never solve a management problem.

Business Process Simulation Technology from Lanner
Today, TEC Research Analyst Gabriel Gheorghiu focuses on business process simulation software provider Lanner Group. Gabriel looks at Lanner's history, products, and market position—and explains the pros and cons of using software to simulate your business processes.

HAMMER: idea formulated by Michael Hammer in the book Reengineering the Corporation: A Manifesto for Business Revolution , where he states that the goal of any business process improvement initiative should be to radically improve the activities in the company or even revolutionize them. He also says that business process improvement should be a constant activity in any company, in much the same way that market change is constant. What Is BPM Simulation and How Does Lanner Do It? Naturally, it s wise to test busi

Accounting Software Selection Challenge #3: Microsoft vs. Infor (Difficulty = Basic) » The TEC Blog
the toolbox is a hammer, then every challenge or problem is seen as a nail which requires hammering. The technology is not the silver bullet it all comes down to the requirements and processes for which every so often we ignore at our peril. Software vendors will always tell you their product is able to accomplish all the tasks you have as part of the sales effort. However, not many businesses/users ask the 64k question…This is our business processes, How can your product support our processes? Hence,

Beware Supply Chain Excel Users (You Are Doomed!) » The TEC Blog
you carry is a hammer, everything looks like a nail. As for solutions to the problem, I agree with the author’s comments about the need for “visibility, control, collaboration, real-time data sharing among trading partners, and security”. For a long time industry has believed the way to accomplish these goals was through BIG enterprise software. And for Fortune 5000 companies, this may very well hold true. The key for smaller companies should be a solution that can “right-size” itself to their

Microsoft Dynamics AX: The Chosen One Among Microsoft Dynamics ERP Equals? – Part 3 » The TEC Blog
AX as a great hammer and all issues as nails. And the general .NET community have nevery heard of AX or X++ (dotnetrocks.com a .net podcast has had over 600 shows without one meantion of it). This gap of worlds needs to be bridged. As a .net architect, I love AX, and have built solutions that mix both side, which is a surprise and revolation to boths sides - it shouldn’t be.

The ERP Life Cycle: From Birth to Death and Birth Again
The enterprise life cycle is often misunderstood, which can lead to complications during the selection, implementation, and maintenance phases. Knowing what to expect during each phase will allow an enterprise to get better money for value from the solution.

HAMMER: in my firm to hammer out the key requirements that really make a difference. This is the time to ask hard questions about how much functionality (and customizing) you really need. Here s an example of what I mean: Who cares if the pricing module does best pricing at this point? It s better if we find out if the pricing module supports adding price components that respond to characteristics of the item, the customer, and the order quickly and with relative ease. I would then issue a request for proposal

Gosh, They Kill Partnerships, Don t They?
There is nothing new in the fact that software partnerships do not last long. While Commerce One would face serious consequences if there were a breakup with SAP, the bigger and better party would not be unscathed either. The partners may, therefore, stay together, for the children's sake.

HAMMER: in a between a hammer and an anvil situation - it cannot just acquire the part of Commerce One it still needs, but the total acquisition of a company that might possibly become the Enron of the software market (we do not imply any dishonest business practice, but rather the magnitude of losses), could cost SAP dearly. There is also the lingering market perception problem for SAP. Namely, SAP might thereby be building a history of partnering with vendors and assimilating value before breaking off the rel
