a problem now, but it will surely become one—maybe sooner than we think. According to an IDC report , we created 281 billion GBs of data in 2007, and by 2011, that number will increase to 1,800 billion GBs. While we do have more sophisticated tools to extract and manipulate data, one of the challenges of the future will be to have structured data. This involves the existence of workflows for data creation and administration, data cleansing, and data deduplication (removal of duplicate records).

Tips for Researching Enterprise Solutions » The TEC Blog
research on enterprise applications. It is incredible how even the best solutions have the worst copy. Moreover, finding relevant information on even the most prominent enterprise applications can be … well, (uh-oh, I’m going to say it) like looking for a needle in a haystack, a process that can be as mundane and as tired as that old expression. ERP research, however, is a step that no selection committee can ignore. Consider this • Majority of decision-makers on a selection committee are not

Best of the Three CRM Solutions
In 2004, Best Software acquired ACCPAC through its parent company The Sage Group plc and has now released a new version of its CRM product: SalesLogix 6.2. Their objective is clearly to gain as much market share as possible in the growing small and medium sized enterprise market (SME). Acquiring additional market share is a clear objective when competing in a target market that houses players such as Microsoft CRM, Salesforce.com and the mid-sized Siebel offering. It will be interesting to watch how Best Software will position its new
: in the services that it has been most successful. In order to penetrate the market evenly across all sectors, and achieve a uniform market penetration that spans all sectors, SalesLogix needs to offer vertical versions. As partners have already built vertical solutions as customizations for individual customers or customer groups, the company is further considering this option for the flexible CRM platform. With its hosting capability, the recent ACCPAC CRM addition to the Best Software product family is
Selecting PLM Software Solutions
Past experience shows us that the vast majority of enterprise technology evaluations run over time and budget, and once selected, the majority of the implementations fail to meet functional, return on investment (ROI) and total cost of ownership (TCO) expectations. Enterprise technology selections for ERP, CRM, SCM, and other enterprise applications provide valuable lessons that can be applied to selecting PLM software, but there are some key differences that need to be recognized.
: is daunting for corporate IT buyers to discern the true capabilities, strengths and weaknesses of a given enterprise application suite, given the propaganda that pervades vendors endeavors to differentiate themselves (see Beware of Vendors Bearing Solutions ). When making strategic IT acquisitions, buyer s project teams, inundated with an abundance of available products and technologies, have a difficult time translating the content of glitzy marketing slides and grandstanding presentations into the
Servigistics and MCA Solutions Join Forces on Super Tuesday » The TEC Blog
I also think that it is hard for large ERP vendors to market smaller and more focused add-on solutions because their customer contacts are typically in IT departments and not in services operations (I believe that this is a critical flaw in the application consolidation model). Having said that, perhaps a much broader SLM platform will be more attractive to large ERP/ enterprise asset management (EAM) or product lifecycle management (PLM) /computer-aided-design (CAD) vendors to acquire, once

These pervasive problems have created a new industry of antivirus and anti-spyware software. Blacklist-based software is one of the most common response solutions.

CRM and Technological Solutions: Be the Customer
In CRM, and now e-CRM, its not about the technology, but about focusing on the locus of importance around which CRM applications grew; namely, the customer. Ignore him at your peril.
: Introduction Be the bagel. It was a refrain I heard often in a metalworking shop class I took in one of my engineering classes back in college. The purpose of the class was for the students to both design and build an original device of their own creation, with the purpose of helping them understand that engineers can t work in a vacuum, and they need to understand the implications of their design decisions when they send their blueprints down the line to the shop for prototyping and, ultimately, prod
