market is mature and slow-growing. However, the market is actually undergoing tremendous architectural and technological transition. This report provides a quantitative market-sizing analysis based on the direction and scope of the overall fibre channel storage systems
market, and analyzes next-generation fibre channel storage systems
segments and their growth prospects. PubDate: 8/15/2008 3:57:00 PM
Abstract: The network attached storage (NAS) model, based on network file systems (NFSs), creates a number of issues for high-performance computing clusters (HPCC) systems. NFS is oriented toward access, not performance—which means that it does not scale as needed for growing HPCC systems. It also adds another layer of latency between the storage and the computing systems. In this white paper, we outline a new model for storage.
Abstract: Persistent delivered web-based sales support and customer service solutions to a broadband data and VOIP provider. We helped our client rapidly build and deploy web front end systems for order entry, self-care, and customer care and also integrated these systems with their fulfillment, inventory, and billing systems using service oriented architecture (SOA). This resulted in improved end customer acquisition and satisfaction and improved time to market and significantly reduced total development costs.
Abstract: The idea that tier-one systems are difficult to maintain and upgrade is based on outdated notions about their complexity and flexibility. Although tier-one systems are more complex internally than tier-two or tier-three systems, tier-one systems are often easier to maintain: for one thing, one enterprise system is easier to maintain than several. Learn more about this and other reasons for upgrading to a tier-one system.
Abstract: On July 25, Made2Manage Systems, Inc., a provider of enterprise business systems for small and midsize manufacturers, and Click Commerce, Inc., the provider of Enterprise Channel Management software and services, announced a new offering to enable small and mid-sized manufacturers to leverage the Internet to support their sales, inventory and service networks.

Abstract: Business strategy, a road map telling us how the business plans to be successful, does not guarantee success. Strategy execution requires business processes that do what the strategy calls for--and do it well. In today's automated world, these business processes rely on business systems. Therefore, a direct link exists between the success of business strategy and business systems. Poor systems are a frequent reason for the failure of a business strategy.
Abstract: This is a transcript of an audio conference on Enterprise Resource Planning Systems presented by TechnologyEvaluation.Com. The presentation used the TEC patented selection engine WebTESS to conduct a real time evaluation and selection. It then reviewed the critical differentiating ERP criteria, as well as detailed comparisons of the several major ERP vendors: SAP, Oracle, PeopleSoft, J.D. Edwards, Baan, Intentia, System Software Associates (SSA),Geac Computers, Industrial & Financial Systems (IFS), QAD, MAPICS, Symix Systems, Great Plains, and Lawson Software.
Abstract: In April Ross Systems, Inc., a supplier of enterprise systems, announced financial results for its third quarter of fiscal 2000. In May Ross Systems’ announced its Chairman and CEO, Dennis Vohs will retire as CEO at the end of the company’s fiscal year on June 30, 2000.
Abstract: Human resources (HR) systems have been around for many years, providing robust and efficient solutions for companies of all sizes. When properly designed, implemented, and maintained, these systems allow companies to engage and nurture their employees and critical processes. When these systems are neglected, however, the result is a loss of competitive edge, increased employee dissatisfaction, and unnecessary costs.
Abstract: Many manufacturers have already implemented enterprise resource planning (ERP) systems. That’s why questions about the need for an additional system to track, analyze, and manage costs are no surprise. Does it replace the entire ERP system? Is there additional work for cost personnel? While each user of enterprise cost systems uses them differently, the road to success lies in using them in conjunction with ERP systems.
Abstract: In one of the most difficult economic environments in decades, manufacturers around the world are reevaluating their enterprise resource planning (ERP) systems. On-demand ERP solutions, commonly referred to as software-as-a-service (SaaS) ERP systems, are increasingly attractive to enterprises seeking to cut costs and extend scarce IT resources. Discover the five advantages of on-demand ERP systems.
Abstract: Architecture bridges the semantic gap between the requirements and software. Application software systems must be architected in order to deal with the current and future needs of the business organization. Managing software projects using architecture-centered methodologies must be an intentional step in the process of deploying information systems ― not an accidental by-product of the software acquisition and integration process.

Abstract: Architecture bridges the semantic gap between the requirements and software. Application software systems must be architected in order to deal with the current and future needs of the business organization. Managing software projects using architecture–centered methodologies must be an intentional step in the process of deploying information systems – not an accidental by–product of the software acquisition and integration process.
Abstract: Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) solutions have to work with many other systems, not just ERP, so integration is not a new issue for PLM vendors. Most PLM vendors recognize the need for integration and have addressed the need in their toolkits. The additional work comes from integrating the concepts and semantics of one system to the next, if this business level integration has not already been provided between the two systems. This can be a big challenge for best of breed vendors, who may need to rely on systems integrators for much of this conceptual and semantic integration.
Abstract: Despite rapid industrialization in China and other developing countries, most manufacturing execution systems (MES) and warehouse management systems (WMS) are found in North America, Western Europe, and Japan. These systems have made extraordinary productivity gains possible in the West. However, Chinese manufacturers require a new generation of MES and WMS capabilities to boost their productivity.
Abstract: Over past two decades, Ross Systems has delivered strong back-office functionality and good customer support within certain industries; it is considered a leader in native process manufacturing functionality. The company has also expanded its online operations through its RenaissanceLink software application portal and its Ross Systems E-Commerce order management software subsidiary. However, its financial position for the last 18 months has eroded due to the combined effects of decreased license revenue and investment in R&D.
Abstract: On April 20, Symix Systems, Inc. announced financial results for the third quarter and nine months ended March 31, 2000. The operating loss is attributed to the Company's continuing investment in its e-business operations, and the delayed rebound of the traditional enterprise systems market following the Y2K-caused slowdown.
Abstract: While enterprise applications solutions are moving closer to the plant floor, and plant-level systems are moving closer to enterprise planning application functionality, these systems will not likely converge anytime soon, because they use different technologies and have different user requirements.
