SAP's Dr. Peter Barth on Client/Server and Database Issues with SAP R/3


To address questions for a TEC customer, we interviewed Dr. Peter Barth, Technology Marketing Manager for SAP AG in Walldorf, Germany. The conversation covered issues in the areas of client/server architecture and database management used by the SAP R/3 Enterprise Resource Planning suite of products.

When a client attempts to connect, the message server will connect the client to an application server that either a) has the lowest load, b) is specified for that client in the configuration file, or c) a different application server if the specified one is down.

Is scrambling to consolidate and virtualize your information systems department frazzling you and your hardware? Are management and infrastructure costs not as low as you’d like them to be?

Both technologies are extensions to RAID 5, which stripes data and parity information across a set of disks, providing fault tolerance in the event of a single failed disk drive. RAID 6 extends the data protection of RAID 5 by writing a second set of parity data. RAID 6 provides high storage utilization, because it requires only a single drive beyond RAID Read More

4 Things You Should Think of Before Going Postal on Customer Service


We’ve all had bad experiences with customer service yet we still expect them to be great each time we call. I’m not saying that we should expect the worst, but maybe we should think of the following things before getting angry, frustrated, or homicidal (as someone said at the CRMe10 conference yesterday): • The customer service representative is not the owner of the company and most

Linking S&OP and CPFR (For Retailers' and Manufacturers' Sakes): An Executive Panel Discussion

LMS Can Help Regulate Good Ethical Practices


When we talk about the benefits of learning management systems (LMS), training and employee competency usually come to mind. For that reason, LMS is often considered a less-than vital business activity (since it doesn’t address “core” business issues). Add to that the fact that nobody really enjoys training, and you’ve got a recipe for, well, no LMS. However, when it comes to compliance issues

fault tolerance  your organization is at fault. If you’re looking for an LMS to handle these sorts of issues, your shortlist should consist of vendors who specialize in the core compliance area. Another vital component: the learning management system’s ability to integrate with your human resources system, to allow tracking of historical training and performance management data. But the most important criterion: the ability to audit. Not the ability to audit your financial integrity, should those ghastly government Read More

How to Buy an Enterprise Software Thingy


Laws a’mercy, now that’s what you call a flame war. The White Paper Pundit has taken direct aim at our Top 10 Most Ambiguous White Paper Buzzwords, decrying our use of the word “tool” to refer to so-called software “solutions.” I won’t address his characterization of TEC bloggers as “fashionably unique.” (Software selection?

Design for Serviceability

There are many methods to achieving it: Rationalize and reduce the number of Read More

Making Sure Your Service Provider Doesn't Fall Down on the Job


A recent Forrester report on Commerce Sites developed by service providers shows costs are rising while service is remaining flat, and sometimes results can be pretty glaring from a 'minor' slip-up to one that can have major client impact.

fault tolerance  Users are also at fault for often demanding very tight deadlines be met, and for not being willing to shell out for the additional security of proper human factors analysis, and market testing the site prior to going live. Small service providers (under 500 employees) are generally the ones who would find the heavy cost of documenting and developing processes to ensure quality the hardest to bear. It would seem from this perspective the larger service providers have the edge. However, this may not always Read More
