Moreover, ILOG’s business rules capability is embedded within IBM WebSphere Process Server and WebSphere Application Server . It is interesting to note here that IBM also partners with ILOG's foes Fair Isaac Corporation and Corticon Techologies for their BPM and rules management capabilities. Last but not least, ILOG BRMS engine also runs IBM’s InfoSphere Master Data Management (MDM) Server  and IBM FileNet enterprise content

Let Your Hard Drives Tell You Where they Are!


Dogs, books, dolphins, and khakis are all being tracked. What about those hard drives at Los Alamos?

Smart labels contain an integrated circuit (IC) that can be programmed with detailed information, such as origin, location, owner and other information. Since smart labels use radio frequencies, they do not require a direct line of sight to be triggered. As well, it is possible to put smart labels in obscure places to prevent their removal. Smart labels can be embedded in plastic. The smart label that is used on dogs is about Read More

Innovative Approaches in the Free-for-all World of Value-added Resellers


The universe of existing applications partners is relatively stable; some occasional movement from dropping one product in favor of another occurs naturally, and no vendor is immune to losing partners. But some innovative vendors are doing their best.

wafer polishing  Approaches in the Free-for-all World of Value-added Resellers A Hybrid Approach: The Way to Go for Most? The one certainty in the world of value-added resellers (VARs) is that there is no cure-all, and no magic fix. We've taken a look at some approaches in parts One and Two of this series, but it's worth exploring some other intriguing tactics. Part Three of the series The Cha(lle)nging World of Value-added Resellers. Indeed, most vendors' business models are of a hybrid nature, where there is a Read More

How Supply Chain Projects Morph Into Black Holes


For all but a few astronomers, black holes are unknown in the realm of ordinary experience. Analogs do exist, however, in the more terrestrial domain of business process reengineering and take the form of supply chain management implementations. Real-life examples offer insights that may help prevent your supply chain project from collapsing into oblivion and taking your enterprise with it.

So What’s the Big Deal with Chemicals?


Due to the inherent challenges of the industry, most chemical companies are still unable to profitably respond to highly variable demand, or to execute predictable product supply strategies.

wafer polishing  What’s the Big Deal with Chemicals? Originally published - May 10, 2006 For the chemical industry, the last decade has been a rollercoaster ride. Until two years ago or so, sales of everything from petrochemicals to paint were sluggish; inventories all but overflowed the storage tanks, and the pricing power of producers was weak. But a reversal of fortune has almost emptied those tanks, and plants are operating around the clock (and still barely meeting the increased demand). This increased demand is Read More

Advanced Planning and Scheduling: A Critical Part of Customer Fulfillment


The face of business is rapidly evolving from traditional brick-and-mortar facades to electronic ones. While web businesses spend considerable effort in polishing Internet front ends with sophisticated graphics and animation, they must also give attention to back end fulfillment operations. Invisible to consumers, these operations encompass networks of manufacturers, warehouses, and distributors that shoulder the burden of filling orders and delivering products. Advanced Planning and Scheduling (APS) offers powerful tools for addressing the challenges presented to these networks by e-commerce.
