Voice over IP Manageability


The average personal computer (PC) costs an enterprise $10,000 (USD) per year to own and maintain—five times the purchase price of the hardware and software! Is it possible to reduce the total cost of ownership (TCO) of technology platforms? Voice over Internet protocol (VoIP) manageability can be a crucial step in self-provisioning users and unburdening valuable network professionals.

Some platforms are extensions of legacy voice switches, others are built on top of legacy data technologies, and still others were designed from the ground up for converged voice and data. In this paper, we examine the impact these very different starting points have on management, consider what should be possible when Read More

Software-as-a-service: Beyond the Architecture Discussion


As software-as-a-service (SaaS) deployments have moved from relatively small implementations to more complex enterprise environments, it has become clear that SaaS has spawned more than an architectural debate around on-premise software deployment versus a multi-tenant provider-hosted environment. This paper discusses the business model required for SaaS providers, and the key benefits for customers and providers.

pay rolls  with SaaS, customers typically pay a subscription fee for access to the solution. Because the software for the solution is owned and managed by the solution provider, the upfront costs and overall TCO for the customer are lower. Native-SaaS solutions are built on a modern shared platform, sometimes referred to as multi-tenant, which allows the software provider to securely share one version of its software with many customers. The provider is responsible for maintaining the platform, delivering the Read More

The Third Paradigm


Supply chain systems to date have represented the back-end of that process of servicing markets and have taken us a long way in replacing assets with information. But the fact is, building products still takes a long time. Contrastingly, markets require short response times--days. For the last few years, we have begun the process of trying to understand the unplanned event. The first and second paradigm systems deal in knowns--this is what I think I need and therefore this is what I will buy. The Third Paradigm focuses on the uncertainty elements to understand risk. This is the key. Isolate, understand and organize the chaos—creating an operational and financial model.

FIGURE 2 A simple example will clarify the concept. Firms are reluctant to overbuy stocks. We might wind up with too much inventory, and that capital investment can have a huge opportunity cost—preventing us from making other critical investments. With products where we have a fair knowledge (low risk) of their behavior in the market, we can Read More

A related effect of this study (if, indeed, anyone reads studies) should be a slowdown in the move to develop rich Read More
