SAP's Dr. Peter Barth on Client/Server and Database Issues with SAP R/3


To address questions for a TEC customer, we interviewed Dr. Peter Barth, Technology Marketing Manager for SAP AG in Walldorf, Germany. The conversation covered issues in the areas of client/server architecture and database management used by the SAP R/3 Enterprise Resource Planning suite of products.

Dr. Barth: It is possible, but the DBA must be clear on what they are doing because the referential integrity is program enforced within SAP. It isn't possible to use database referential integrity because database referential integrity can not enforce business logic. For example, payroll processing is workflow driven. Errors are treated as exceptions to be handled later. In this scenario, a database rollback would be useless. In addition, SAP provides Read More

ECAD/MCAD Collaboration Solutions: Integrating Mechanical and Electrical Product Design


Electro-mechanical design continues to gain importance, as the majority of today’s products have both electrical and mechanical components and systems. Designing and stimulating these products collaboratively across both domains is essential to producing high quality products. Learn how implementing an electro-computer-aided design (ECAD) and mechanical computer-aided design (MCAD) strategy—now—can help you later.

Users have to create the 3D form of this data so that the mechanical designers can do some critical tasks. First, 3D data is needed to perform accurate clearance and interference analyses, especially when the PCB is embedded in a small enclosure such as a cell phone. Another area where this is important is airflow and heat analyses, in which the mass and shape of the Read More

Comparing the Total Cost of Ownership of Business Intelligence Solutions


For many companies, traditional business intelligence (BI) software is costly and resource-intensive. So are open source alternatives that require significant configuration and integration. In contrast, software-as-a-service (SaaS) solutions can reduce the cost of a BI deployment by providing automation and pre-integration. Compare total cost of ownership (TCO) for traditional, open source, and SaaS BI solutions.

Elementum Does Mobile End-to-end SCM


After about two years of stealth operation, Elementum, a novel mobile cloud platform for holistic supply chain management (SCM), announced that it has more than $60 million in funding and several major customers.

The Wizardry of Business Process Management: Part 5


Part 1 of this blog series started a lengthy discussion about the value proposition and parts-and-parcels of business process management (BPM), with an ensuing focus on Pegasystems (also known as Pega) as one of the leading BPM suite providers. Part 2, Part 3, and Part 4 then analyzed in depth a number of the vendor’s “BPM secret sauce” ingredients. Pega is one of the leading vendors in the

Can We Intelligently Use Part Numbers to Configure and Order the Right Products?


In the industrial automation industry, an overlooked, fatal flaw of sales configurator solutions is their inability to simultaneously configure part numbers and products. A greater concern is their inability to "decipher" product specifications from part numbers—that is, in reverse.

A customer, for example, can learn a defined part number schema that may use the following approach, where all positions are of variable length: first position for voltage; second position for horsepower; third position for amperage rating; fourth position for color; and nth position for material. Where most commercial product configurators fall short, however, is when a fixed length in each position is required. It is quite Read More
