Learning Management Suite (LMS)

These are tools for managing, creating, scheduling training or learning in your organization. The terminology varies from vendor to vendor. Learning management systems (LMS) typically help to manage both classroom and on-line learning. They do not normally include content creation or management tools but may in some cases. Some LMSs may manage just classroom or just e-learning rather than both. Some LMSs may also include content authoring and managment and virtual classrooms. Learning content management systems (LCMS) emphasize the management of content for courses/training/learning. In most cases, they include content authoring tools. In some cases, they may also include some of the features of LMSs. Content authoring tools are often provided as part of an LCMS. They may also be stand-alone products. Virtual classrooms (web conferencing tools) normally are separate third party offerings but may be included as part of a suite of tools. Suites of tools include features of at least two or more of the above categories. While some companies offer just LMS or LCMS systems others offer suites of products, which provide all or most of the features of the other tools. Suites combine several capabilities of learning management--usually two or more of the following: learning management, classroom training management, e-learning management, custom content creation, learning content management, learning object repositories, or virtual classrooms.

SAP HANA-One Technology to Watch in 2012 (and Beyond)


Did you know that SAP HANA is much more than a high-speed analytic appliance? TEC principal analyst P.J. Jakovljevic reveals how HANA is a universal database that will enable companies to analyze large volumes of operational and transactional information in real time, from virtually any data source, and that will eventually deliver an entirely new class of applications that will change the way people think, work, plan, and operate.

Architecture-Centered Information Systems In The Manufacturing Domain - Part III - Steps in the Architecture Process


Architecture bridges the semantic gap between the requirements and software. Application software systems must be architected in order to deal with the current and future needs of the business organization. Managing software projects using architecture–centered methodologies must be an intentional step in the process of deploying information systems – not an accidental by–product of the software acquisition and integration process.

Technology Viewpoint The technologies that will be used to implement the system are selected in this view. All other viewpoints are fully independent of these technology decisions. Since the majority of the architecture design process is independent of the deployed hardware, commercial technology evolution can be readily accommodated. A Read More

What Does the “M” in PLM Really Mean?

Solomon Stands the Test of Time Despite Changing Masters Part Three: Product Differentiators


Of all the MBS' products, Solomon is apparently the purest in terms of a standard Microsoft technology stack, and without any proprietary additions. Furthermore, its sharp focus solely on Microsoft technology from ground up, coined in ''the power of one'' motto (one OS platform - Windows XP/NT/2000, one database platform - MS SQL Server, one development environment - MS Visual Basic, etc.), also presents an attractive, risk-adverse option for penny-pinching mid-market customers. Solomon IV has consequently been very competitive in speed of implementation, feasibility of customization, total cost of ownership (TCO), and price/performance ratio.

Further, the Solomon Object Model allows any application or programming tool that is capable of communicating to the Microsoft Component Object Model (COM) the ability to integrate with any screen in Solomon. Moreover, not only does it facilitate the integration with external applications, the model also provides the necessary architecture for Microsoft VBA , which is used within the above-mentioned Customization Manager. In other words, the object model provides a programmatic interface to the Read More

Where Is ERP Headed (Or Better, Where Should It Be Headed)? Part 2: Product Architecture and Web-Basing


This note discusses how a flexible and agile ERP system needs an adaptable architecture, how easy integration to 3rd-party applications has become a key selling point for ERP vendors, and how extending ERP to the Internet stems from the intent of many IT organizations not to reinvent the wheel in their scramble to create e-commerce applications.

Object orientation means that design, linkages, etc., use objects as their basic building blocks, which is a radical departure from traditional 'procedural' design and coding methodologies. An object class is a combination of data and processing logic. The data for a class may correspond to a relational database table, but this is not necessarily the case. The processing logic comes in methods, which are similar to subroutines or procedures. By maintaining processing Read More
