Defining the Business Value from Your Technology Investment


Most decisions on technology investments, like decisions in other business areas, are tied to expected benefits. Typically, these benefits are identified as cost savings, greater efficiencies, "best practices," or more sales. But too often the value promised by adopting new technology is misinterpreted or misunderstood by the business. The result: mismanaged expectations, or worse, business decisions made with faulty information.

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.

Old software born on obsolete operating systems can be literally tricked into running on a modern Windows OS by inserting a layer of new code beneath it. And it can be concealed from the outside world by wrapping it in layers of modern graphical user interface and EAI code. So, software written during the 1970''s and 1980''s resides at the heart of many corporate systems. Its designers certainly didn''t know Read More
