Warehouse Management Systems (WMS)

A warehouse management system (WMS) should provide database and user-level tools in order for a company to optimize its storage facilities while at the same time providing user level task direction and activity support. The WMS should enable warehouse operators to optimize pick, put-away, and replenishment functions by employing powerful system logic to select the best locations and sequences.

The Importance of Server Robustness in CRM


In today's software frenzy and with the increasing demand for applications that provide maximum return on investment, many companies have failed to focus on subjects like reliability, downtime, and scalability. Since 1991, Touchtone Corporation has devoted its efforts to developing and maintaining a client/server customer relationship management (CRM) application and has equipped more than 750 IBM AS/400 and iSeries customers with its native OS/400 CRM solution.

Enterprise Application Integration - Where Is It Now (And What Is It Now)? Part 2: Where Is It Now?

The Next Big Thing or Integration-The Interaction Server Part 2: Possible Solutions


Web Services is a no-brainer as a standard mechanism for providing access to enterprise applications and data; this will allow businesses to create words out of alphabet soup (ERP, SFA, CRM, EAI, EJB, COM, BFD). Nothing about Web Services, however, addresses the front-end complexity of dealing with multiple channels, such as supporting disconnected devices and asynchronous interaction models that are required by wireless and mobile connectivity.

the database server is not available  similar to its predecessors, the Database and Application server. This parallels widely accepted, logical separations in software architecture between data, business logic, and presentation. The Interaction Server hosts a run-time container to manage interactions between multiple connected and disconnected devices and channels (e.g. HTML browsers, mobile phones, PDA's, Voice, Web Services) and the systems that support the enterprise.

Is HCM for Everyone?


Human capital management (HCM) software is traditionally understood as addressing human resource (HR) plus talent management business requirements. While HR software is now quite affordable and adopted by many businesses, a comprehensive HCM suite that includes talent management modules is not equally accessible. Talent management products are relatively new on the market. Some of them, especially

Hubspan is in Suppliers’ Corner


Founded in June, Hubspan helps suppliers connect to a buyer-centric B2B world.

Suppliers are usually enlisted by large companies to join a new exchange or trading hub but are offered no assistance in connecting to it beyond the specification for an interface they must scramble to build.

Making the Cloud Work for You


As the marketplace moves towards a less opaque and more defined cloud computing model, UK-based businesses will increasingly expect reliable, secure and cost-effective on-demand services that free employees to be more productive and more profitable, wherever they are located. These organizations have heard about the benefits but remain unsure about the “types of cloud” available to them, and about the precise timing and extent to which they should embrace opportunities presented by the cloud. Beyond convergence, the situation has become even more complicated with trends such as consumerization and the proliferation of handheld devices, plus the security threats (and remarkable new business opportunities) posed by an increasingly mobile world.

What Is Software as a Service?
