APICS 2009 Convention: Day 3


Today’s general session showcased people from around the world (Mexico, China, Italy, South Africa, Poland, India, Egypt, US, etc.) and their stories about what work in manufacturing and supply chain means to them. The idea behind this was to show us how supply chain concepts are being embraced worldwide—and the presenters did it by showing media clips and images from different continents.

I was very intrigued by the description of the session: “Microsoft Excel can bring order to the chaos when your enterprise resource software can’t get the job done.” Read More

CDC Software + Consona = Aptean (Or: New Bottles for Old Wines)


August 2012 started with the announcement of the merger of Consona Corporation and CDC Software under the name Aptean. The new brand, announced on August 7, signifies the coming together of two leading enterprise application software companies.

After finally getting out from under the delinquent and bankrupt former parent company, CDC Software needed to be part of a bigger company.

Social Media and Customer Experience Feedback


Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, and blogs are just a few Internet services that make up the new growing digital world called social media. Many companies have seen the influence these new sites can have on their organizations for both good and bad. All companies should ask themselves, "How can we tap into the power of this new method of communication to improve our business and the experiences we provide our customers?"

The way to overcome this weakness is to add structure to data flowing in from social media networks. (See our tactical recommendation on how to do this, below.)

Demand Planning: Optimizing Operations across the Supply Chain

The long answer is: Everyone needs and wants to know. That's why demand planning exists. Demand planning hasn't gotten the attention that enterprise resource planning systems (ERP) or customer Read More

Reducing the Cost of Systems Operations


Disintermediation is the process of removing redundant intermediaries from a systems management infrastructure. Once vital to systems monitoring, proprietary agents are now made largely redundant by native management tools, emerging standards and agentless monitoring architectures. Centauri makes disintermediation possible by providing a low-cost event management solution that unifies performance data and event messages under a common umbrella. This paper describes how you can take advantage of the disintermediation opportunity and minimize the risks of migrating from working proprietary data collectors to a new native-agent based solution.
