High Performance Organizations Are Driven by the Power of Enterprise Business Events


"Agility", "real time enterprise", "zero latency" ... these are among the several buzzwords doing the rounds these days. Some would characterize these present times as belonging to the "Real Time Decade." Are these words just hype or do they proffer a vision of reality for the near future? This article attempts to examine the issues involved and offer some answers.

ERP Vendor to Client: "You Incompetent and Clueless Fools"


The backstory: a lawsuit filed in 2008 by Alabama pet food maker Sunshine Mills over a Ross Systems ERP implementation. Fast-forward to December 3, 2010, when an Alabama jury awarded Sunshine Mills $61 million (USD) in damages ($45 million of which were punitive). From CIO.com's article about the verdict, quoting Sunshine Mills attorney Daniel McDowell: Ross Systems handled the

And also , well, newsflash: sometimes people just hate people, and in particular, sometimes people hate customers. It happens. I'll bet this mudslinging could have been avoided, though. It's all extremely reminiscent of what happens when three critical components go MIA during the software implementation process: Clearly defined expectations from both the vendor and the client with respect to what the software Read More

Microsoft .NET-managed Code Enablement: Examples and Challenges

What CRM Should Have Taught IT (although not getting the message is not entirely IT's fault)


IT hasn't properly supported CRM because it hasn't understood either its importance or its requirements. The advent of CRM exacerbated a serious, pre-existing condition, rather than CRM creating the condition. Bottom line-gathering business requirements for technology support should no longer be IT's problem. It's up to business to gather and communicate business requirements for technology support. And business-siders don’t need to understand technology to accomplish this, either, because this is 2003, not 1993.

Actually, many IT folks walking around desperately trying to avoid blaming themselves for their loss of budget are muttering the same thing. But the key learning I'm referring to carries a different descriptor. It's not the software, stupid. Turns out that CRM wound up being more about customers than technology. And to add insult to injury, CRM is more about Read More

The future is tomorrow’s present.
