The Essential Supply Chain


Supply Chain Management (SCM) once viewed as a way to obtain a competitive advantage, is now perceived as a logical and necessary extension of Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP). The reasons: First, traditional ERP systems lack the advanced planning tools necessary for companies to respond to an increasingly competitive business environment. Second, advances in computing power and data transmission enable disparate entities to communicate efficiently and at a low cost. Finally, vendors have observed the complementary nature of SCM and ERP and are engaged in consolidation of their product suites.

More a trap than a tradeoff, this situation can sometimes be avoided if business strategy is made the first area of reengineering. However, in cases where an implementation is already underway, project teams are often required to compromise on functionality in order to complete the project on time or within budget. This occurs because many systems do not offer the flexibility and functionality required Read More

E-learning and Organizational Culture


The success of an e-learning initiative depends as much on the people and culture of the organization as it does on the technology used. Several corporate cultural factors that affect the success of an e-learning implementation are discussed and illustrated.

E-learning is one methodology and technology for delivering and enabling learning. In most organizations, an e-learning initiative is an implementation of training and collaboration that is made available to employees over the corporate intranet, and is thus readily available to people at their convenience. While e-learning may partially replace classroom training, in most cases it is Read More

Manufacturer's Nirvana -- Real-Time Actionable Information


How many ERP vendors, including the largest ones, have natively built-in real-time production monitoring, warehousing management, time and attendance capture, and complete quality management systems?

While some larger complex enterprises, with a variety of unrelated businesses and divisions, may need a best-of-breed solution to extend their activities into e-collaboration in a more flexible manner, we also believe that managing this large application portfolio, much of which involves partnering or extensive integration and customization, is cumbersome to say the least. While the best-of-breed approach can have its merits (see Best of Breed Versus Fully Integrated Software: Read More

Architecture Evolution: From Mainframes to Service-oriented Architecture


Product architecture is going to do much more than simply provide the technical functionality, the user interface, and the platform support. It is going to determine whether a product is going to be able to accommodate increasingly evolving user requirements.

In that setup, the mainframe (or an extremely powerful minicomputer) represents the brain, while so called dumb terminals allow the user only to access and input data. In other words, since a dumb terminal is a mere combination of a keyboard and a terminal, it cannot process information itself. The early era was thus characterized by immediate processing of information by the mainframe, but separate, silo departmental applications would reside on Read More

How to Address the Two Key Challenges with Virtualization


The amount of data and IT assets stored outside corporate data centers has risen significantly, and IT managers are now looking to consolidate their IT infrastructure. This paper examines the trends toward server consolidation and virtualization, and how wide area network (WAN) optimization can help IT organizations address the challenges of application performance and information availability within these environments.

The Demarc Extension and Its Role in the Enterprise Network Telecommunications Infrastructure


Demarc extensions have been a recurring gray area in the telecommunications industry for years. There is often misconception when it comes to who actually performs the Demarc extension. This confusion can lead to finger pointing and eventually a bad reputation for those involved. Understand the issues surrounding the Demarc extension and how they can be resolved from the very beginning.

Software as a Service: Next-generation Network Performance Management


An estimated 55 percent of users of business critical applications work in remote locations. With so many users working remotely, networks become congested and user productivity suffers. Until now, wide area network (WAN) monitoring and shaping has required special appliances, but there’s a new alternative software-based solution available that leverages the power of the user’s PC—providing unprecedented traffic control.

Secure Information Sharing for Layer-two Networks: Delivering Security without Complexity


Although layer-two networks are a viable, cost-effective alternative to traditional wide area network (WAN) services, they have some major security deficiencies. One of the key drawbacks of layer two is its inability to handle identity authentication—which creates serious theft and vulnerability problems. With a layer-two data protection solution, however, you can mitigate these types of security issues.

The "S" in SAP Doesn't Stand for Security (that goes for PeopleSoft too)


During the course of product evaluations for a customer, the Technology Evaluation Center has uncovered a potential security hole in SAP R/3's three-tier architecture. SAP has revealed that they expect the database or third party products to handle security between the application server and the database server. If the client does not take these extra measures, the master password for the SAP database instance travels over the network in the clear, and can be captured. PeopleSoft has the same issue.
