Microsoft’s Underlying Platform Parts for Enterprise Applications: Somewhat Explained - Part 1


I can partly understand analysts’ temptation to beat up on Microsoft’s forays into the enterprise applications space. To be fair, "the empire" has had its share of strategic and tactical miscues, as if it had wanted to give these naysayers some ammunition. For one, many analysts and market observers first criticized the giant for not having a unified enterprise resource planning (ERP) product line

Also, BI vendors often seem content to leave fragmented data models of the applications they will even try to enhance in the future, as their pet project is often mainly tackling the layer of decision, and leaving master data management (e.g., rationalization of supplier or item master data), bidirectional integration, or business process management (e.g., forecasting or sales planning) to enterprise vendors and/or their system integrators. Unfortunately, users want functional Read More

Project and Process Management


Project portfolio management (PPM) is a business practice that helps organizations align their portfolios of projects with their business strategies. PPM organizes a series of projects into a single portfolio consisting of reports that capture project objectives, costs, timelines, accomplishments, resources, risks, and other critical factors. Executives can then regularly review entire portfolios, allocate resources appropriately, and adjust projects to produce the highest departmental returns. As its name implies, project portfolio management groups projects so they can be managed as a portfolio, much as an investor would manage stocks, bonds, and mutual funds.

Business process management (BPM) complements PPM by enabling and managing the exchange of enterprise information through the semantics of a business process view that involves employees, customers, partners, applications, and databases.

The Business Model for the 21st Century Is Project-centric


Cost, time, resources, cash, and risk have always been the basics of project management. But as business as a whole becomes more project- rather than process-oriented, management technologies must in turn become more project-centric.
