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

if not  of the bubble. And if many CTOs, CIOs and IT managers had paid heed, they wouldn't have lost their budgets—or their credibility, and in some cases their jobs, either. But, you may fairly ask, doesn't the principle of aligning technology with business requirements apply to all technologies—ERP, ABC, XYZ—and not just CRM? And right you are. The alignment principle applies across the board. However— CRM, with its complex set of unfamiliar, cross-functional business requirements, demonstrates Read More
If Software Is A Commodity...Then What?

if not  Commodity...Then What? Introduction Many, if not most categories of software have become commodities. Vendors hate to hear it, but most of the products in a category produce the same results, pretty much in the same way. If this is true, how do user select the right vendor? How does a vendor get selected? Yes, A Commodity! How do we define a commodity in the software world? Both vendors and end users tend to focus on features, but both should focus on the needs of the business. A commodity situation Read More
Is a New ERP in Your Future? Why Not Now?
If your current enterprise resource planning (ERP) isn't doing the job for you now, it’s not likely going to do so in the future. If you are a manufacturer that

QAD: A Software Vendor That Has Survived (if Not Thrived) in the ERP Market
QAD, a renowned provider of enterprise software solutions for midsized global manufacturers, has outlived many of its contemporaries by maintaining its

if not  harmfully high fixed costs. If midsized companies are unable to grow quickly and unwilling to merge with other like companies (thereby reducing these high fixed costs), their cost structures should put them at a serious disadvantage. QAD, much like its independent and resilient peer IFS (see Enterprise Applications Vendor Reverses Fortunes—But Will Perseverance and Agility Be Enough? ), is a prime example of the mixed blessings of a tier two ERP provider. QAD and IFS demonstrate that there is no Read More

Subtle (or Not-so-subtle) Nuances of Microsoft .NET Enablement
The Microsoft .NET strategy continues to confuse many, due to the lack of understanding of the technology. Indeed, because of the massive marketing campaign

The underlying data integrity is always protected, as the raw data is never accessed, since all data manipulation is controlled by the protected business object. The integrity of the underlying system is kept intact at all times, while at the same time an environment is created to extend functionality with a minimum amount of time, cost, and expertise. Thus, with the advent of .NET, Microsoft-centric Read More
HP: Why Not Just Call It “e-Vectra.com”?
HP succumbing to the trend for simple, sealed case PC’s, will release the e-Vectra in April. E-look before you e-leap.

That said, the HP e-Vectra offers better legacy support, and faster processors, than Compaq's iPaq, for little additional cost - about $50. User Recommendations Two things need to happen before e-Vectras can be evaluated for your organization. First, Microsoft needs to release Service Pack 1 for Windows 2000. Second, Read More
Software as a Service: Not without Caveats
Software-as-a-service solutions often cannot provide that final twenty percent or so that differentiates a company from its competitors. Of major concern is

Thus, it remains to be seen how much Salesforce.com's Apex , the vendor's most recently unveiled multi-tenant interpretative language, will help in that regard. Apex, a runtime engine with Java-like syntax and the functionality of procedural language structured query language PLSQL (since the underlying database at Salesforce.com is Oracle ), was designed to work Read More
To Tax and Tax Not
Taxation of Internet commerce will be a football that gets tossed around in the United States long after Superbowl 2000 is just a memory. In Singapore, however,

However, if Internet shopping is favored with a tax exemption, the economic effect is a surcharge on the purchases of those who cannot afford Internet access, further widening the divide. As pointed out by Dallas' Mayor Ronald Kirk, this would shift a disproportionate burden for paying for local government to the poorest of Americans. Mr. Kemp countered that the Internet economy would create wealth that helps the poor through creation of jobs and through the ability of many Read More

It also depends on how many aspects of your customer relationships you think could do with a little revolutionizing—or “evolutionizing.” And finally, it depends on your company's budget. What Are the Features of CRM? In order for CRM to effect positive change in your company, its features should speak to all Read More
QAD Explores E-Business While Not Abandoning ERP

To build intelligence into the solution, QAD eQ uses the vertical expertise of QAD service consultants to help companies address their industry-specific needs.

Enterprise Applications: The Cost of Keeping Current… Or Not
