Poor usability in business applications leads to increased help desk costs. On the other hand, better usability makes our usage experience more fun and can increase productivity. A highly usable on-line shopping web site tempts repeat visits, builds customer loyalty, and increases its revenue-earning potential.

For example, a business user who has not yet seen a to-be-developed customer order screen may at best be able to specify what pieces of data he or she would like to see in a customer order screen.

JUST IN TIME RESEARCH PAPER: or #2 - people just aren t getting as upset at Microsoft s tactics of this type as they did in the past. However, from a corporate standpoint, this indicates that Microsoft is taking the Linux threat even more seriously. Although MS has not ignored Linux, this is viewed as yet another potshot from Redmond. Frankly, we think the so-called Halloween memo from 1998 and the Linux Myths website posting were greater indicators of Microsoft s worry. With Linux accounting for approximately 15% of server

Is Baan Clinically Dead?
On January 4, 2000 Baan, Europe's No. 2 business software company, sank deeper into trouble as its CEO resigned and it forecast a fourth quarter loss of $240 million to $250 million after restructuring. Its shares plunged over 30 percent as analysts cut recommendations on the loss-making vendor, which has yet to name a replacement for Mary Coleman, who is returning to her Silicon Valley home after taking charge only last May.

Welcome to the world of predictive demand and supply planning whose mission is to predict imbalances as far in advance as possible, in order to provide ample time and opportunity to design and implement corrective sales and operations solutions. So how do we design a system for identifying potential issues and expressing them via a commonly understood key process indicator (KPI) where the cause and effect of our actions can be readily measured?
