Advanced Planning and Scheduling: A Critical Part of Customer Fulfillment


The face of business is rapidly evolving from traditional brick-and-mortar facades to electronic ones. While web businesses spend considerable effort in polishing Internet front ends with sophisticated graphics and animation, they must also give attention to back end fulfillment operations.

Advanced Planning and Scheduling (APS) offers powerful tools for addressing the challenges presented to these networks by e-commerce.

Function Points: Are They Really the Right Unit of Measure for Software Sizing?

The Impact of IT Service on Business Process Management


There are potential benefits of operating business process management (BPM) side-by-side with business service management (BSM). BPM and BSM are emerging technologies: BPM is concerned with the orchestration and management of effective business processes, while BSM focuses on the operational effectiveness of the enabling IT services. These technologies are mutually beneficial to one another. This white paper is intended for managers interested in implementing robust BPM solutions in IT-dependent business scenarios or managers looking to lay down a basic foundation for effective on-demand utility computing. It addresses the partnership between Fuego and Proxima Technology, vendors in BPM and BSM solutions.
