federal government vendors  Two: Dealing With the Federal Government Dealing With the Federal Government Neophytes will find dealing with the Federal Government perplexing, since the customer in case will act very differently than its commercial counterparts. Also, the additional regulatory requirements impact how eligible contractors are selected, monitored, and paid, and may require the aspiring contracting company to revise internal procedures or enhance its back-office or ERP system.

Document Management System (DMS)

Document management systems (DMS) assist with the management, creation, workflow, and storage of documents within different departments. A DMS stores documents in a database and associates important information about the documents, to the documents (known as metadata). Most systems provide workflow engines to design and support document creation, publication, and usage. DMS solutions are often used by insurance and health care industries, government bodies, or other organizations processing high volumes of documents.

Federal Contract Management and Vendors' Readiness Part One: Entry of Small Vendors into Federal Contracts


When all enterprise vendors go for ERP and like solutions to help improve the business of small, midsize, and large aerospace and defense (A&D); engineer-to-order (ETO); contract manufacturing; maintenance, repair, and overhaul (MRO); and like project-oriented manufacturing companies they may face the need to meet government contract requirements.

federal government vendors  of Small Vendors into Federal Contracts Event Summary In the market for application software there is a large number of small, highly focused vendors. The business model for these vendors focuses on a relatively small, tightly defined market with specific requirements that cannot be met with more generic products. These specialists, boutique, or niche vendors (neither of these terms is meant in a derogatory manner) will compete by having in-depth product functions and intimate knowledge of their market Read More

Smaller Vendors Can Still Provide Relevant Business Systems Part Three: Project Oriented Organizations


The unique business needs of project-oriented organizations, when addressed by large ERP vendors that offer general-purpose enterprise software, typically require heavy customization in order to work. On the other hand, when project-oriented organizations turn to small off-the-shelf project-management solutions, these solutions are soon outgrown by the user company.

As an example, leading ERP vendors provide procurement software that works with pertinent laws and regulations, such as Code of Federal Regulations (CFR), DoD Contracting Regulations, General Services Administration (GSA), Federal Acquisition Regulations (FAR), Federal Supply Schedules (FSS), etc. Also, they provide human resource (HR) systems that align Read More

Big ERP Players Courting Government Agencies


There has been significant activity in the public sector, with all major players winning important new federal contracts for Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP). This strong government interest in ERP applications means that ERP seems to be getting some infusion from this sector at least.

federal government vendors  have captured important new federal contracts for ERP, signaling continued strong government interest in ERP solutions. Oracle, within the past month, won contracts with the National Institutes of Health and the Small Business Administration. Other recent wins include the departments of Energy and Veterans Affairs. SAP Public Sector and Education of Washington, in addition, landed an award in early October with NASA. That win follows others in recent months, such as a series of pilot projects with the Read More

Federal Contract Management and Vendors' Readiness Part Three: Meeting Federal Requirements


Companies that are not already offering the capabilities of meeting the exacting, stringent requirements of federal agencies will likely not be able to tap the recent surge in the federal and defense markets. Conversely, those vendors and their users--government contractors--who can deliver comprehensive solutions that satisfy the requirements of federal agencies are in the driver's seat to capture that market segment.

Small ERP Vendors Missing The ASP Boat


Our experience from conducting dozens of ERP software selection engagements recently teaches us that some number of smaller enterprises, first-time ERP buyers, opt for an ASP. Surprising, however was that an even more significant number of incumbent mid-market vendors by not addressing this trend have been handing over a big opportunity to their bigger brethren.

BI Approaches of Enterprise Software Vendors


The need for business intelligence (BI) is real for all enterprise software users. It is rare to find a user who feels they get the information they need from their enterprise software system and even those who do want more. The need is not just reporting; they need business monitoring, analysis, an understanding of why things are happening. They need diagnostic tools.

ERP Vendors, Are You Green Enough?

Thus, the results and conclusions should not be used for any serious purpose.

The Reinvention of Software Vendors and End-User Value


Application vendors are focusing on their install base as their primary source of revenue while cutting costs to provide profitability. Most vendors will tell you that they are both new account and customer oriented, and some have struck this balance. But the vast majority have been worshipping at the Wall Street idol of new accounts for so long that the reality is, they have a new account business model.
