OS SmackDown!
In the latest escalation in the battle between Windows and Linux, directions on how to replace each with the other have been published on the Web by their respective champions.

HOW TO WRITE RESEARCH SUMMARIES: Microsoft published instructions on how to remove Linux OS and install Windows 2000/NT4 on the newly-freed-up disk drive. Not to be outdone, Linux-philes have countered by publishing instructions on how to remove a Windows OS and replace it with Linux. To close the circle, Paul Ferris, Editor at Linux Today, highlighted the silliness by publishing his own mostly-joking piece on how to uninstall both Windows and Linux. (His directions lead to a wiped out disk drive, of course.) Market Impact Alone, these

Big Bird Dines Again
Harbinger has agreed to be acquired by Peregrine in a stock exchange. The merger mates an infrastructure company that has already begun feathering its nest with e-commerce offerings to an established e-commerce company. Whether the resulting egg is golden remains to be seen, but it almost surely won’t be cracked.

HOW TO WRITE RESEARCH SUMMARIES: the air this spring, how hard will it really be for a company to match someone else s purchasing application with Peregrine s Asset management solution? Even less obvious is the advantage of using Peregrine s marketplaces to companies that have Peregrine s e-procurement software. Which is not to suggest that the new company will fail to prosper or to achieve some level of synergy. It s simply not clear if its new model will be so compelling as to attract a flock of competitors. One thing that seems

HOW TO WRITE RESEARCH SUMMARIES: more interested in seeing how these can be customized. Once they are customizable it will be even more beneficial to make these portable—to enable a reseller to create roles/user experiences and recreate them for other users. They will also have to vigorously deliver an assuring message to the current customers about the support, enhancement, and migration plans for their respective products. The task of keeping track of a growing matrix of upgrade compatibility relationships between multiple product

HOW TO WRITE RESEARCH SUMMARIES: of code bases, etc.). However, development has already begun, and there is an agreement in place to integrate each other s technology starting immediately. Given that some companies will not be willing to wait that long, offerings from E.piphany, Broadbase, Quadstone and thinkAnalytics, among others, should also be evaluated. The SAS Institute is also working in this direction, although it is behind the development curve also. Although SPSS is starting out from behind, it has a chance to end up in a

Supply Chain Economy
The US Labor Department reported an increase in jobs in June and July ... but the manufacturing industry cut jobs for a third month in a row. We are moving from a manufacturing economy to a supply chain economy. This article gives the big picture.

HOW TO WRITE RESEARCH SUMMARIES: continues. And then Katrina! How much of the nation s logistics infrastructure will get deployed in the humanitarian needs (from a human perspective we hope a lot, but from a business perspective capacity issues will rise). Long before this current crisis, we all have known that we were heading toward an energy crisis. Trips to Wal-Mart won t be in the family SUV anymore—how about a bicycle?

I can get the information by faking out the system, or by doing extensive manipulation of data extracts in off-line spreadsheets, but it isn’t easy. It makes forecasting difficult, and that hurts our inventory management and our supply chain reliability. Big problem. By contrast, most out-of-the-box systems come with pretty good reporting, and as long as you don’t change the code, the reports will
