In so doing, a customer has greater options by which to negotiate down the price of the software, hardware, or both as a bundle. The additional advantage of utilizing a Java-like environment is that the software almost automatically becomes web enabled. With

The Advantages of Enabling Order Execution in Hardware


The increasing volume of orders, pervasiveness of algorithmic trading systems and customer demand for lower latency are outpacing the capabilities of the software- and server-based systems sell-side firms use to do process trades in financial markets globally. This is causing many of these firms to experience lower trading performance, dissatisfied customers and high operational complexity and costs. This white paper looks at the disadvantages of traditional approaches to achieving the guaranteed messaging requirements of order execution and explains the benefits of solutions that perform message routing entirely in hardware.

A Guide to Software Test Tools


Testing a system well is harder than building it. In the face of new risks introduced by the ever-increasing complexity of software and hardware, test tools may be your only practical way to be confident that you've got just what you paid for. From gathering the initial requirements to supporting the system after it has been deployed, test tools are available to support all phases of a project. This article looks at the ways that test tools can be used to design, code, and (of course) test a system.

hardware requirements  they may require dedicated hardware to perform properly, and may entirely avoid the user interface in favor of a deeper interaction. They often provide functionality to monitor behavior of the system as a whole, rather than any individual test. Monitoring tools (also known as Flight Recorders ) also measure overall properties of the system and its environment during testing, and may allow the measurements they make to be compared historically. They can provide system tuning information and early Read More

Getting Consensus on Business Requirements: Tips and Traps


Out of 100 IT projects, 94 will start over again at least once. Before your company launches its next package implementation or upgrade, make sure you don’t cripple the project from the start. Make sure your company has a clear understanding of how important the requirements definition stage is, and carries it out properly. Most importantly, find out about tools and ideas you can put into practice immediately.

What CRM Should Have Taught IT (although not getting the message is not entirely IT's fault)


IT hasn't properly supported CRM because it hasn't understood either its importance or its requirements. The advent of CRM exacerbated a serious, pre-existing condition, rather than CRM creating the condition. Bottom line-gathering business requirements for technology support should no longer be IT's problem. It's up to business to gather and communicate business requirements for technology support. And business-siders don’t need to understand technology to accomplish this, either, because this is 2003, not 1993.

Almost preposterous to think that CRM, the trouble-making, technology low-life that's made so many messes, could have anything to teach IT. After all, CRM isn't real technology. Or only barely so.

Virtualization and Disk Performance


The recent explosion of virtualization as a technology coincides with the trend of consolidating systems on to less, but more powerful, hardware. With more robust hardware, consolidation makes cost-effective sense. And given the reduced management overhead and more efficient hardware use, virtualization makes a great deal of sense indeed. However, it’s also important to be aware of its dangers.

Process Manufacturing: Industry Specific Requirements Part Three: Textiles


As with any manufacturing operation, process manufacturing has special system requirements such as formulas, unit of measure conversions, and packaging recipes. However, within the realm of process manufacturing, specific industries have needs that are more critical than others. This article explores these critical needs for the food and beverage, chemical, and a hybrid industry (textiles), so that you can focus on these requirements when evaluating enterprise-wide software.

hardware requirements  Manufacturing: Industry Specific Requirements Part Three: Textiles Introduction Traditionally, manufacturing is categorized by two methods: process and discrete. Many differences exist, but most can be grouped into two areas: those derived from material issues and those derived from production issues. Process materials are different than discrete materials. Process materials are powder, liquids or gases; they must be confined; and they are more difficult to accurately measure. Process materials are Read More
