It’s About Process (or The Ability to Be Responsive)


Because business processes are often communicated in an ad hoc and unregulated manner, it can be difficult to standardize processes across organizations, particularly larger ones. TEC analyst PJ Jakovljevic takes you on a guided tour through workflow automation—or business process management (BPM)—and shows how these solutions can help ensure standardized adoption of processes, with highlights on several key BPM vendors.

In contrast to that, workflow modeling within ResponsAbility does not require coding, compiling, server deployment, etc. Furthermore, the SaaS deployment model completely obviates the need to buy and install an IDE.

Desktop Management's Dirty Little Secret


ESD (electronic software distribution) promises to simplify software distribution and management, and eliminate ''sneakernet'' the costly, time-consuming manual process that some companies still use to do upgrades and installations. Unfortunately, the cure often has some of the same pitfalls as the problem, not to mention a few snags of its own.

These time and labor costs often aren't revealed in the ROI figures ESD vendors show prospective customers. ESD technology evolved to troubleshoot such software distribution and management problems.

It’s About Time “Legal” Got Involved


On May 16th, a press release surfaced describing a new ASP (Application Service Provider) serving the legal industry. Trouble is, the new company’s website lacks fundamental information… Like who they are.

writing sops  at the time of writing, ASPORA's web presence was/is extremely limited. It lacks fundamental information such as company location, background, strategic partnership details, hosting information, and licensing data. It is rich (if not overly done) with flash-like graphics that lead to orphaned pages. Overall, the debut is slim. Could it be the marketing department got a little ahead of itself? Given time, perhaps ASPORA will catch up with its announcement, or simply fall victim to its own rhetoric. Read More

Maintenance Tips For Improved Profits: Creating the Business Case to Invest in Automation


Does it really make sense to spend money to save money? The answer may surprise you when it comes to maintenance of large capital assets including Facilities, Fleet, Plant Equipment and yes, even computers. It makes even more sense when you consider that today more and more companies are adding a new line item in their financial statements called "Deferred Maintenance Revenue Write Down". A lack of preventive maintenance affects the shareholders of all companies due to aging assets and reactive maintenance practices. A complete preventive maintenance program consisting of better business practices and a simple tool such as a Computerized Maintenance Management Software (CMMS) or Enterprise Asset Management (EAM) package can streamline the process and result in immediate savings in both time and money. So how do you justify the initial investment and where can the cost savings be seen across the enterprise?

What Makes a Good IT White Paper Good… and a Bad IT White Paper Very, Very Bad…


A white paper is a document or “brief” (and yes, perhaps unfortunately, I mean “brief” in the sense of something that informs rather than something that is short—white papers are sometimes as concise as newspaper editorials, or run as long as the latest “… For Dummies” book; examples of this will be provided in upcoming posts). A white paper’s purpose is to educate the reader, who is the potential

There are already a number of helpful online sources and books devoted to white paper Read More

BI Showdown Becomes a Firing Squad


Sometimes you don’t want to read the glowing pros or vicious cons about how vendors address 1433 separate business intelligence software criteria.
