A lack of adequately written and context-sensitive software help can be frustrating in the case of dealing with a non-standard business situation or trying a rarely used function of the system. Although mainly a technical and hardware-related issue, a system’s response time can also be a usability problem. This is an important consideration for a user’s convenience and efficiency, and can be crucial for both on-premise and cloud-based systems. ERP applications with

IT Project Management Tools: MS Project and Its Alternatives (Part 1)


In a previous blog post, I wrote about the Project Manager’s role and some of the constraints that affect the daily life of a PM, namely: scope, time, and cost. This post will focus on some of the tools a PM uses on a day-to-day basis (and why), and some of the limiting factors that these tools present. In order to understand the use of PM tools it is essential to have an understanding of the PM’s

The Steel Manufacturing Industry: What Use Is an ERP System, Anyway?


TEC regularly works with companies to identify the right software vendors for their industry and particular needs. I’m going to provide you with information about ERP systems and how they relate to steel industry requirements (note: you can always consult our Vendor Showcase to find out more about specific software vendors).

ERP II Demystified


As organizations prepare for their next ERP version upgrade, they find themselves trying to make sense of a new iteration that disrupts the traditional understanding and thinking about ERP. ERP II requires organizations to transform from a focus on internal resource optimization to a new focus on process integration and external collaboration. To help organizations make sense of this new iteration, we look at why ERP II has come about, how it differs from ERP, and how it promises to change the way organizations do business in the future.

Rapid Implementation Methodology


It's a sad but well-known fact that many software implementation projects run out of time and money. Certain crucial activities tend to have striking effects on the cost of an implementation.

Discover which parts of a software implementation are worth spending extra money on in order to minimize risk and cost.

AGPL v3 Touches Web Services


The Free Software Foundation (FSF) issued a press release on its newly published Affero General Public License (AGPL) version 3.
