ERP for Services (Non-manufacturing)

Typically, ERP systems designed for services industries offer modules that provide back-office support, customer relationship management, time management, expense management, resource management, and project management capabilities. Depending on the vertical market, additional industry-specific functionality may be included to address unique business requirements. Consequently, project-centric systems for accounting, architecture, construction, engineering, and professional services industries will support project management functionality; whereas health care, field service, distribution, and government systems will support functionality unique to those vertical markets.

Service-oriented Architecture-Savior or Nemesis?


Managed well, service-oriented architecture (SOA) offers a tremendous opportunity to make positive changes and lay a foundation that will allow IT to become responsive and cost-effective. But SOA is also a potential minefield: hype is raising expectations beyond reality in an environment that is already stressed. In fact, managed poorly, SOA can be an expensive and spectacular failure.

In addition, LANSA 2005 promises to empower developers to use Java services almost effortlessly in their applications, including vastly simplified access to and implementation of Web services from LANSA and 3GL programs alike. For organizations going down the SOA path, the platform might provide the necessary tools and architecture, since all new applications built with LANSA 2005 are automatically Web services-enabled and existing legacy applications Read More

Establishing Enterprise Architecture Governance


This article discusses the issues around implementing architecture governance, and what constitutes viable approaches to establishing effective governance processes.

.net architecture  Enterprise Architecture Governance Introduction The intent of the Enterprise Architecture is to define how to build systems and capabilities for the greater good of the enterprise. Architecture governance is the process by which IT projects are reviewed in terms of their alignment with a defined architecture, and corrective changes made. John Zackman, in a recent article (DM Review, December 1999) called architecture a ''countercultural'' activity. What he meant by this was that IT''s attention Read More

Microsoft .NET-managed Code Enablement: Examples and Challenges


Intuitive, Visibility, and Epicor offer .NET Framework-managed code products, but their "if it ain't broke, don't fix it" mindset might work against them unless they can prove higher value propositions, such as new, more quickly developed vertical functionality.

FileNet


FileNet Enterprise Content Management (ECM) products are designed to help organizations manage all their content and control business processes. FileNet ECM can be used to help ensure compliance by managing digital content, e-mail, images, web content, records, forms, and business processes. It manages content wherever information resides and in whatever format, so that the content can be quickly accessed. FileNet software securely manages and controls images, digital content, web content, records, forms, and e-mails. In addition, FileNet can help streamline processes involving people, business systems, and content. It transparently declares records while capturing information from e-forms and enabling team collaboration.

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.

.net architecture  software simply runs on .NET branded servers (Microsoft Windows). While such technologically laggard Microsoft-centric products can run on the latest Microsoft operating systems and database platforms, the aforementioned benefits of Web services are typically not easily achievable. Conclusion and Recommendations When a compelling new technology does appear, it is quite common for an enterprise application provider to surround its old ERP or accounting core software in a wrapper of newer technology, of Read More

Great Product: Too Bad The Architecture Doesn’t Fit


During the process of product selection a great deal of attention is given to the functional capabilities of the software being evaluated. While this aspect is obviously important, ignoring the technical mechanisms by which the software actually operates can be fatal to a project. In this document we explain how to avoid the pitfalls.

.net architecture  Product: Too Bad The Architecture Doesn’t Fit Great Product: Too Bad The Architecture Doesn''t Fit M. Reed - November 29, 2003 Introduction Most potential customers understand that detailed scripted scenarios should be performed with software vendors who are on the short list of candidates, in order to evaluate the functional abilities of products being considered. Unfortunately, many companies neglect to investigate the technological underpinnings of these products during the evaluation phase. This Read More

Software Architecture Lifecycle Management


To keep a large business on course, you need to have a clear picture of your IT infrastructure. But for many large organizations, that’s easier said than done. Years of upgrades, maintenance, modifications, and legacy systems left over from mergers and acquisitions can leave you wondering which systems are driving your business and which ones are weighing it down. With a software architecture lifecycle management (SALM) initiative from TEC, you can create a structured blueprint that details your enterprise software mix—a key component of your company’s IT infrastructure.

How to Build an IT Infrastructure for Net Weight Control


A modern weight control system must support data entry from humans, as well as direct acquisition from weigh scales and devices. However, it cannot operate as a stand-alone point solution. It must span geographic space, hosting data from multiple lines and even divisions. And because of the proliferation of co-packers, it must sometimes even span company boundaries.

Architecture-Centered Information Systems In The Manufacturing Domain - Part II - The Architecture Process


Architecture bridges the semantic gap between the requirements and software. Application software systems must be architected in order to deal with the current and future needs of the business organization. Managing software projects using architecture-centered methodologies must be an intentional step in the process of deploying information systems — not an accidental by-product of the software acquisition and integration process.

PacketController Net Neutrality QoS


This white paper describes PacketController’s net neutrality methodology. Through PacketController's automatic TCP rate-limiting technology, it does not matter what the traffic is, or if it's encrypted, as the algorithms at this level fundamentally work per subscriber. Should there be any unidentified traffic (and there will always be unidentified trafic), PacketController's unique fair allocation of bandwidth automatically ensures fairness across the network and ensures no one subscriber gets an unfair share of bandwidth.The paper also describes the typical process to implement PacketController in ISP environment to manage bandwidth investment and increase network performance.

Implementing Strategic Agility through Modular Architectures


This article focuses on the development of strategic agility as a capability that is built into the design of an architecture. The capabilities, the article argues, are matured through six stages that offer different levels of strategic agility. Strategic agility, once capitalized through modular architectures, enables a company to achieve greater speed and flexibility in information technology (IT) deliveries.

Fusion ioControl n5 Hybrid Storage Architecture


Conventional hybrid storage solutions use NVRAM (non-volatile RAM/flash) to cache data before writing to disk, then augment performance with an SSD read cache. While such solutions generally offer acceptable performance for small datasets, they are ultimately limited by the configuration and number of SSDs that can be deployed. In contrast, a hybrid storage approach can leverage PCle-based flash to provide better performance. Read this white paper to better understand the improvements and benefits of a PCIe flash hybrid.
