The Seven Types of Power Problems


Many of the mysteries of equipment failure, downtime, software, and data corruption are the result of a problematic power supply. Compounding the problem is that there is no standardized way to describe power problems. Learn more about common power disturbances, what can cause them, and how to safeguard your critical equipment—all described in Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) standard terms.

Standard Benchmark on Hewlett-Packard ProLiant Servers


In August 2006, Microsoft conducted a Microsoft Dynamics AX 4.0 standard distribution benchmark to measure the performance and scalability characteristics of the application in a simulated distribution scenario. This benchmark exercised core accounts receivables scenarios around order entry through invoicing, in addition to procure-to-pay processes around purchase order creation through receiving of goods.

Top 10 Ways the Transition to IFRS Will Impact Your ERP System


GAAP, or Generally Accepted Accounting Principles, have long defined the standards for accounting and related practices in the US.

GAAP is also important because it provides for consistency across industries and companies. A company using GAAP can have its

Case Study: Accurate and Complete Factory Orders


ABB is a global leader in power and automation technologies that enable utility and industrial customers to improve their performance while lowering their environmental impact.

The Case for Integrated Processes


Most chief executive officers (CEOs) have developed strategies that push their companies to achieve certain goals. So why are so many companies failing to achieve these goals?
