i part 6  of Affairs - Part I Those that follow manufacturing-oriented enterprise applications have likely noticed for some time an uptick of conversations about the need to better integrate high-speed manufacturing operations (the real-time world of the plant) with the planning and engineering departments (the transactional and design world of enterprise systems). The nirvana (or utopia) hoped for thus far has been to provide a single point of operation and control for manufacturers to: Plan, Define, Control, Read More

i part 6  Stimulus Readiness - Part I At  Deltek’s Insight 2009 user conference last May , the host software vendor did a notable thing. Namely, besides merely putting on an all-too-common multi-day conference chock full of product announcements, functional breakout sessions, and industry  best-practice  discussions, Deltek decided to fill a market need by convening a separate “track” that was dedicated to navigating the maze of  the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (ARRA) , a.k.a. the Read More
JDA FOCUS 2010 Impressions - Part 1
Last year I attended the JDA FOCUS 2009 conference to realize that Scottsdale, Arizona-based JDA Software (NASDAQ: JDAS) has become a force to be reckoned

i part 6  and based on whom I met at the conference, JDA has retained key i2 personnel with industry-wide respect (those that have survived many previous voluntary and involuntary exoduses at i2), and many of whom are in positions of authority at JDA (e.g., Kelly Thomas is now SVP in charge of discrete manufacturing). JDA announced multi-year integrated product roadmaps 60 days after the i2 close. In these roadmaps, JDA plans to converge most of its existing and acquired product sets. JDA pledged several key Read More
Deltek's Second Bite at the IPO Cherry (Part I)
In the last decade or so of covering the enterprise applications market, I've witnessed so many products and vendors disappearing and reappearing under a

i part 6  repositioning time in 2003.  I think the apex was when Deltek's then enlightened marketing engine churned out such cheeky gems as challenging the likes of the Big 3 ERP leaders at the time, by taking the entire back page of the June 6, 2003 Wall Street Journal business section with a signed “come to us” letter authored by Ken deLaski, the former Deltek CEO and President. The Part II of this topic will thus analyze the recent times at Deltek and whether the company has lately evolved and separated Read More
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

i part 6  white papers , and I am going to stay away from all that here. My intention here is rather to acknowledge that, as part of my daily routine of doing research on vendors and their strategies and offerings, I've read a ton of white papers in the last decade or so. And yes, these have ranged from vendors' blatant bragging about their capabilities (a la the Every man thinks his own geese swans proverb) to some exceptional ones that were quite educational and established someone's expertise in something.

To SaaS or Not, Is That a Question? - SaaSy Discussions (Part IIb)
The first part (Part II) of this blog series described the opportunities for software as a service (SaaS) or on-demand applications, especially in the current

While there are costs with multi-tenancy, over time the costs to handle each of these architectures can and probably will exceed multi-tenant design costs. Current macro-economic conditions are making one or the other approach seem cheaper right now, but as the economy rebounds, the question will come up about long-term strategy. Finally, the costs for compliance are very high (and Read More

A Glance into the Future PJ : Why do you think that building apps on salesforce.com ’s Force.com cloud platform is limiting? In other words, why did you opt for Google Web Toolkit (GWT) on the front end and Java Class Libraries on the back-end?

The final part of this blog series will analyze how this product release might have mitigated the many traditional flaws of Microsoft Dynamics NAV (and former Navision) while building upon its traditional (if not proverbial by now) positive traits. In the meantime, your views and comments are welcome as usual. If you are existing users of Dynamics NAV or its former Navision incarnations, what have been your experiences with these products and Read More
The Wizardry of Business Process Management: Part 5
Part 1 of this blog series started a lengthy discussion about the value proposition and parts-and-parcels of business process management (BPM), with an ensuing

i part 6  battleground sooner or later. I have seen that trend in many other enterprise applications markets, especially in enterprise resource planning (ERP ), and there is no reason that BPM should not follow suit. While Pega has not traditionally focused on the SMB market space, many of its customer implementations have focused on divisional or business unit projects to automate and assist groups of 50 users or fewer. Pega has historically derived a significant portion of its revenue from the “who's who” Read More
SAP HANA: A Fast Developing “Toddler” - Part 2

SAP : We need to separate out DBAs vs. database modelers. DBAs traditionally spend a ton of time tuning the d Read More
The Power of Knowledge -- Knowledge is Power (Part 2)
Part 1 of this blog series introduced the need for knowledge management (KM) software applications as part of a more comprehensive and strategic service

i part 6  Whizbang Thingies? As mentioned in Part 1 , some Servigistics case studies have proven that SKM can reduce troubleshooting time by solving issues once and making the resolutions available across the service organization. It is sort of like a collective unconscious aligning everyone in the service operation. In addition, the solution can decrease the number of service calls by empowering customers, technicians, partners, and dealers to more reliably and accurately find their solutions through Read More
The (NA)Vision of Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2009 - Part 3
Part 1 and Part 2 of this blog series went through the five previous generations of the Microsoft Dynamics NAV (formerly Navision) product. In late 2008, at the

i part 6  partners at related events, I have recently talked to a couple of Dynamics NAV partners who are less than thrilled with an eventual discontinuation of C/SIDE database.  Also, I did think the recent influx of former Navision people to Microsoft Dynamics’ free and open source (FOSS) foe OpenBravo was a pretty interesting (if not indicative) development too. Needless to say, any injudicious move by Microsoft towards the large NAV install base on C/SIDE database would be a “gift that keeps on giving” Read More

I’m a mid-level manager for a manufacturer of scrotchets here in Greenfields, US of A. I have four direct reports, all of whom want my boss’s job after they’ve digested and shat mine out.
