Why .NET Technology Is Important for ERP


.NET technology is a wake-up call, and some people are sleeping through it! Remaining competitive means mission-critical software systems, such as enterprise resource planning (ERP) applications, must be designed from the ground up for connectivity and integration.

In terms of strategic partnerships, the acquirer is responsible for judging how well customer relationship management (CRM) software will function on the equipment and at the site, and with staff, customers, and third-party applications. Acceptance testing involves three basic flavors: user acceptance, operational acceptance, and contractual acceptance. While it is not the only step involved when implementing a CRM system, testing is a fundamental way of finding information and will help you judge a system’s returns and pitfalls.

Selecting an ERP Solution: a Guide


Looking for the right enterprise resource planning (ERP) package for your small to medium business (SMB) can be a daunting task. A fair amount of information is available about the actual software packages, but there is little advice on how to choose the right one.

Do You Want Your Apps to Talk Back to You (as a Chatterbox)? - Part 1


Let me start this blog series with one disclaimer: I am not an early adopter and I do not easily fall for any vendor’s slick marketing.

When Shortlists Are Too Short, Who's to Blame?


This insightful case study from SageCircle talks about how a vendor almost missed out on a $35M deal because it was left off an RFP shortlist. Although the case study is geared toward software vendors—focusing on the importance of an active analyst relations team—it also illustrates important points applying to software selection projects. The case study is in some ways a cautionary tale for

There are plenty of ways to find appropriate vendors and products for developing a shortlist, even if you don’t already have internal research on them. Thus, it strikes me as negligent that the shortlist developed in this case was incomplete due to a break-down in the analyst firm’s communications. If I were a client engaging an analyst firm to help with my selection project, I’d want to be confident that its m Read More

A Manufacturing Imperative: Enterprise SOA


In the past, full efficiency was almost impossible for most manufacturing sites thanks to lack of integration between plant systems and business systems. But that’s changing now, with the advent of enterprise service-oriented architecture (SOA). SOA allows you to change and improve your processes without expensive IT integration projects.
