Enterprise Content Management: It Is More Than Just Web Content Management
Enterprise content management (ECM) is moving beyond web content management. To meet enterprises' needs, large vendors are introducing scaled down versions

Another feature is e-mail archiving , which copies e-mails, including their attachments, in a repository with meta-tags, which are important for search functionality within the ECM suites. Meta-tags categorize e-mails, so information is stored in a fashionable order, and can easily be retrieved at a later date. Focus Areas in ECM Over the last few years, ECM vendors have expanded their functionality and capabilities by partnering with niche players in the market,

Enterprise Systems and Post-implementation Agility-No Longer an Oxymoron?


The need to support flexibility prior to installation of enterprise systems has largely been mastered by many vendors. But what is really more important is ongoing agility after the installation. Agresso seems to have raised the bar in this regard.

It also supports a smart (rich) client as well as a web-based (thin) client (for outpost Read More

Understanding SOA, Web Services, BPM, and BPEL Part Two: BPEL and User Recommendations


In a somewhat simplified language, while Web services allow applications to easily exchange and reuse information, it is only when they are orchestrated (coordinated) into long-running business flows or processes that enterprises can realize their true value.

There are also some aspects that BPEL currently does not address, such as complex transformations, data translation, trading partner agreements, manual (human) processes, and connectors to specific back-office systems. For that reason, large enterprises will still tend to look to other more complete solutions or even to the above mentioned BPM, SOA, and Web services specialist vendors to create, manage, and orchestrate complex, Read More

Software for Real People Part One: MindManager Feature and Functions


Many software applications are indispensable for the operation and management of the enterprise. They, however, may actually stifle creativity--arguably the most valuable aspect of human capital--by requiring the user to adapt to the tool rather than have the tool supporting the user.

For people that need to manage and monitor a number of projects, UK-based Gyronix ( http://www.Gyronix.com ) has written a plug-in for MindManager that directly implements David Allen's Getting Things Done methodology. (For those of you that do not know David Allen, he is the US's foremost authority on personal productivity). In Gyronix's solution, the tasks from Read More

A New Development Framework on iSeries or i5/OS: Architecture


It is feasible to create native, intuitive and graphical business applications using just available software in i/OS and Open source Java. Using iSeries as an integrated business server is more than just a dream.

Parallel to this universal access for the workflow framework, the connector is also responsible for the universal reusability in alternative Java environments. This means that the same iSeries business logic can be reused over the connector in any Java environment. Web applications can easily be created based on HTML, servlets, Java server pages and Java server faces. These web Read More

Epicor 9: Delivering What Oracle and Others Are Yet to Achieve? - Part 2

Pain and Gain of Integrated EDI Part Three: Other Industry Gains


Many small and medium companies find themselves under pressure to deploy the same EDI system as a major customer, making it a basic cost of doing business with the market leaders.

Also, while organizations in an EDI network have to set up direct, point-to-point connections between each participating system, XML's extensibility supposedly means that participating companies using an agreed upon data format for transactions can freely exchange data. In short, XML has initially not only promised to ease the technical pain of integrating the flow Read More

Architecture Evolution: Service-oriented Architecture versus Web Services


Collaboration and interoperability are critical where multiple business units reside under one larger corporation, or where there is a requirement to integrate the system into a disparate system when a business-to-business or business-to-consumer extension is part of the business model.

Web services are revolutionizing how applications talk to other applications (or, more broadly, how computers talk to other computers) by providing a universal data format that lets data be easily adapted or transformed. Based on XML, the universal language of Internet data exchange, Web services can communicate across platforms and operating systems, regardless of the programming language in which the applications are written. Although each Web service Read More

Smart Training Centers


Information workers routinely generate huge amounts of useful information in their documents. However, because this information is unstructured, it cannot be used by other applications. Smart documents tie an XML-based document definition together with a set of custom actions. Smart training centers can thus leverage XML-based documentation to expand information and minimize worker training costs.

Product Architecture for Product Endurance?

LANSA also pledges to enable its customers' software to change over time, as any application can change the interface with little or no code change. Moreover, it can also relatively easily Read More

Examples of Microsoft .NET Enablement

For example, as a user navigates through the e-commerce site, different SYSPRO e-net solutions objects and services will be invoked to retrieve the relevant information.
