mk closet  ERP Vendor Ditches a Microsoft Dynamics CRM Alliance for, well, its own CRM Solution (Part I) Writing about failed partnerships in the enterprise applications market is like writing about the sun setting in the evening and to the west, given almost daily occurrences of vendors announcing alliances that never materialize.

SSA Global Forms a Strategic Unit with an Extended-ERP Savvy Part Three: Challenges and User Recommendations


While the Strategic Unit team formation should help SSA Global to figure out how to fully integrate organizational structure where employees are best integrated, service offerings best coordinated and cross-selling opportunities best tracked and pursued, the vendor must continue to clarify the position and integration of competing and complementary products in its fold, which gets complicated with every new addition to the family.

Rapid Prototyping Or Simply Over-hyping


Having to install an entire suite of software before the strike of Y2K may have made rapid prototyping impractical. However, because we now have the luxury of taking on projects with narrower scopes and a return to popularity of the 'best of breed' solutions, rapid prototyping should be considered as a viable approach for implementation.
