How Green Is Your Technology Landscape?
Introducing “Green” to ProjectsThere is a growing trend in IT organizations to reduce the environmental footprints that are typically generated from large

circuit boards  internal wiring and printed circuit boards may contain polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs). The glass of monitors may contain trace amounts of lead. All these elements are known to be potential carcinogens and as such, require specific methods to ensure their proper disposal. The Green Grid consortium is working with both government and environmental agencies across the globe to reduce the impact of these hazardous materials . 2. Optimization of energy efficiency IT organizations have been pioneers in the

What's in a Name? or Enterprise Systems' Reincarnations (Part I)


Well, the ERP Graveyard blog might sometimes be slightly deceiving, since not all enterprise resource planning (ERP) products necessarily die there. Some of them might even be resurected under a different name and ownership. To that end, Infor might even seem like old news today. It's been five years since its formation (no pun intended here, given its subsequent acquisition of former Formation

Are PLM and Global Sourcing Related? Duh, And How! (Part I)


A number of TEC blog posts have discussed benefits but also the inevitable caveats of white papers (including all too common vendors' self-serving marketing fluff and buzzword verbiage), and about their (un)intended audiences. These posts have even caused some heated debates with other blogging sites and experts on white papers, and I am going to stay away from all that here. My intention here

Indeed, modern CMs today provide their OEM customers with a one-stop shop solution, providing excellence not only in manufacturing, but also in materials management, design and test services, order fulfillment, and logistics. Again, despite the significant possible benefits that come with outsourcing, there are also risks and challenges for OEMs to consider, since outsourcing, Read More

What’s New in Siemens PLM Tecnomatix 10.1


Tecnomatix became part of the Siemens PLM family of products in 2007, having been created in 1983 in Israel to offer manufacturing process management (MPM) solutions.

Nujira Selects and Implements Omnify Software PLM


The competition in the product lifecycle management (PLM)/product data management (PDM) software space is cutthroat, but some incumbent mid-market vendors are holding their ground—for example, Omnify Software, a provider of Web-based PLM software for discrete manufacturers (often using a mixture of electrical and mechanical components). Omnify has announced its latest Empower PLM implementation

The company was using a component management database that was initially sufficient for its needs, but as Nujira grew, it became inadequate to control information such as engineering change orders (ECOs) and product documentation. The company also had to address concerns associated with various sources (silos of information) and versions of data that were a consequence of manual processes. The usual reasons a company like Nujira selects Omnify Read More

7 Tips for Hiring Great Consultants

Acquisition Changes Product Lifecycle Management Landscape


Dassault Systèmes' recent acquisition of MatrixOne could potentially expand its range over a broader set of industry sectors, and may increase its North American visibility. The potential for a joined product suite is considerable, as are the organizational challenges ahead.

From a marketing perspective, it is one of those situations where the sum of the parts does not necessarily equal the whole. One Read More

Emerging Services for Wireless Carrier Networks--Design Abstract


The transition to IP A wireless carrier s national or regional next generation core network will be an all-IP network in the sense that IP will be the network layer (L3) protocol.
