Most of the above-mentioned concerns are surmountable; with the exception of specific Read More

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. But software developers don’t advertise their shortcomings, and some ERP vendors—and by association, their customers—are being left behind.

Function Points: Are They Really the Right Unit of Measure for Software Sizing?


Function points (FPs) are the most popular unit of measure for measuring the size of software. But because FPs were developed in the 1970s, are they not now outdated for today’s event-oriented programming and multi-tiered software architectures?

Therefore, it stands to reason that four different productivity figures ought to be used to obtain the effort required of four different classes of software engineers. Conclusion When it was first developed, FP methodology filled a vacuum; it was an excellent measure for software size. But FP methodology has become woefully out-of-date, mainly due to improvements in hardware and Read More

Managing Vendor Code Customizations with AccuRev Stream-based SCM


Customizing third-party “vendor” source code is becoming increasingly common. But managing the incorporation of vendor application releases alongside customizations requires an additional layer of software configuration management (SCM) to integrate subsequent vendor releases. Traditional branch-based SCM tools require an unnecessarily complex branch-and-merge process. However, there is a more intuitive and efficient parallel development model for managing customizations to vendor code.

Active Execution Management--Delivering on the RFID Promise


Active Execution Management captures radio frequency identification (RFID) and electronic product code (EPC) data and integrates it into the supply chain business process. AXM associates individual EPC events (the observation of an EPC tag at an RFID reader) with the supply chain transaction that is currently being executed and then determines if that supply chain transaction is executing as planned. AXM is able to make this determination by comparing key performance indicators of the supply chain transaction with the characteristics of the EPC event. The paper describes multiple business cases, such as promotions management, deductions management, complex international shipments, and spoilage management, and shows how RFID data can be leveraged to improve supply chain performance.
