Satisfied with Your Supply Chain Management? Tell Us in this Brief Survey!
As I’m in the process of developing the 2012 Supply Chain Management (SCM) Buyer’s Guide, which will be discussing the challenges that businesses face with managing their supply chains and the role of software in mitigating those challenges, I thought it would be worthwhile to conduct a short survey and see how companies today are faring with some important SCM issues.

If you haven’t read the blog post ERP Vendors, Are You Green Enough? that I wrote a little over a year ago, I recommend you read it first. After you’ve checked it out, I assume you’ll understand that I used a flawed and extremely simplified approach to “confirm” my impression of the correlation between the size of enterprise resource planning (ERP) vendors and the greenness of their offerings (see
the search engine, as it was last year. The result shows that almost all the vendors have significantly increased their use of “green” on their Web sites. After going through a few of the vendors’ sustainability-related activities in 2009, I’m convinced that the increase in“green” count does have some connection to the enhancements some vendors have made.

Mid-size Companies Have Full-size IT Issues
Information technology product selection is one issue that does not scale up or down with the size of the enterprise. The breadth and seriousness of issues that must be managed by the Information Systems Departments of mid-size companies are the same as those of larger corporations with more people and funding resources to apply to them.

What Have Epicor and Activant Been Up To (Post-Merger)?
April 2011 saw the merger of Epicor and Activant Solutions to create a global leader in business software solutions. TEC principal analyst P. J.

Cutting IT and Application Support Costs
With budgets under pressure companies must look at ways to reduce IT costs. User support is a prime candidate for scrutiny, because it takes up a significant proportion of the budget. Putting in place a coherent, adaptable learning culture helps to ensure your support costs are minimized and employees remain productive. But there is no one-size-fits-all model. To achieve maximum impact at minimum cost, a variety of tools and approaches aligned overall with company goals will be needed. But the reward is clear—a highly effective workforce that makes fewer costly mistakes, and has a vastly reduced reliance on your Help Desk.
