Application Giants in Duel and Duet for Users’ Hearts, Minds … and Wallets


While SAP and Microsoft are concurrently partnering for certain initiatives, they are still dueling about who is bigger, better, smarter, whose user screens are prettier and more user-friendly, and so on. But the major question is whether the market and users are ultimately going to be better for it.

On the user experience side, the vendor has tailored the user experience to roles (thereby trying to reduce the user experience footprint per-role, as will be described later on). On the runtime infrastructure side, it has added several Microsoft technologies, ranging from reporting via analysis to portal capabilities. By doing so, the Microsoft Dynamics team has been able to get rid of a bunch of arcane code in its existing runtime environments Read More

SAP HANA-One Technology to Watch in 2012 (and Beyond)


Did you know that SAP HANA is much more than a high-speed analytic appliance? TEC principal analyst P.J. Jakovljevic reveals how HANA is a universal database that will enable companies to analyze large volumes of operational and transactional information in real time, from virtually any data source, and that will eventually deliver an entirely new class of applications that will change the way people think, work, plan, and operate.

But they share many similar tools and approaches in designing next-generation applications and overcoming the aforementioned limitations of relational databases. SAP has lately been working on perfecting HANA to be open, i.e., without the need to work with SAP's applications, per se. Thus, the giant wants to power data warehouses and quick OLAP calculations from wherever and from whatever data sources. Besides the recent Read More

The Necessity of Data Warehousing


An explanation of the origins of data warehousing and why it is a crucial technology that allows businesses to gain competitive advantage. Issues regarding technology selection and access to historical 'legacy' data are also discussed.

design stored in structured repository  or non-relational, the very design that makes an OLTP system efficient for transaction processing makes it inefficient for end-user queries. In the 1980's, many business users referred to their mainframes as the black hole , because all the information went into it, but none ever came back out - all requests for reports had to be programmed by the Information Systems staff. Only pre-canned reports could be generated on a scheduled basis, ad-hoc real-time querying was virtually impossible. To resolve Read More

Access to Critical Business Intelligence: Challenging Data Warehouses?


There is a perception that if business users are given access to enterprise databases and raw query tools, they will create havoc in the system, which is a possibility—unless the business intelligence (BI) product developer understands the potential problem and addresses it as a business-critical factor.

What Does the “M” in PLM Really Mean?


In the two previous blog posts (What Does the “P” in PLM Really Mean? and What Does the “L” in PLM Really Mean?) I discussed the object being managed within the product lifecycle management (PLM) methodology. Now, it is the time to move on to the last word—“management.” Management is such a general term nowadays, that simply looking at it won’t give you much idea of what it is about in the PLM

design stored in structured repository  tools such as computer-aided design (CAD), computer-aided manufacturing (CAM), and computer-aided engineering (CAE) are the most direct contributors to the productivity of generating product definition information. However, these are not enough. It is not rare to see a manufacturer send part drawings to a supplier through e-mails and for the latter have a hard time loading the files, or for a design engineer to spend one hour to find an existing drawing that he can simply re-create in half an hour.
