Woe is HP. The company recently made headlines with news that its Autonomy division, which sells a number of products for enterprise content management (ECM), search and discovery, customer experience management, and more, misrepresented its financial situation to get itself acquired by HP. Indeed, HP says its pain from this misreprentation comes to about $5 billion (USD). Read the rest of this entry »

Laserfiche recently implemented its enterprise content managment (ECM) solution for Oregon’s Jackson County. Like many public sector organizations, Jackson County has to adhere to strict records retention schedules. County employees with varied roles must access these records for different purposes, and thus they need distinct views to find, filter, and access the records according to their role requirements.
A new case study explains how Jackson County dealt with these issues using its Laserfiche ECM solution. Laserfiche supports the county’s processes from scanning, to organizing the records in its repository, to disposition.
TEC is preparing to publish more detailed information and reports on Laserfiche in the near future. In the meantime, you can find out more in our IT Showcase or you can evaluate ECM solutions in TEC Advisor.
Ever hear of a company or government agency’s computer systems falling victim to some individuals’ malicious activities? In spite of the frequent news documenting these events, many organizations don’t prioritize the security of their own systems. Vendors such as Rapid7, McAfee, or Qualys offer different types of software to assess, manage, or curtail your information technology (IT) systems’ vulnerabilities. I recently saw a demonstration of Rapid7’s products and would like to highlight a bit of what they can be used to do toward efforts at hardening IT systems. Read the rest of this entry »

That membrane between your business and the online world—your Web site—is expected to be so permeable and malleable these days that web content management (WCM) systems have to manage a lot more than just the content on your site. Now web experience management (WEM) has emerged to address the way people access and interact with your site. WEM also illuminates more of these interactions for your own business’s marketing edification. In this blog post, I’ll look into what WEM means and how it fits within the backdrop of WCM functionality. Read the rest of this entry »

Openbravo ERP is an enterprise resource planning (ERP) solution on the less expensive side of the spectrum, which is valued by distribution and retail industries as well as by manufacturing, services, public-sector, and nonprofit organizations.
I caught up with Openbravo’s John Fandl recently about the company’s latest iteration of its ERP solution (version 3). In the past, we’ve mostly mentioned Openbravo as a peer to other open source ERP vendors, but it deserves to be considered in its own right. Read the rest of this entry »
Is there a tension between the people authorizing IT spending in your company and those determining the needs? The roles of each C-level position, combined with current approaches to IT, may tell the story of how “strategic” your IT systems really are. More importantly, this tension underscores the involvement IT must have in understanding and participating in determining needs. Read the rest of this entry »
Learning management systems (LMSs) and Web content management (WCM) systems for corporate or educational environments have a new but not untested contender. Trunity (a combination of the words truth, trust, and community) provides a platform used to collaborate on delivering a significant body of research used by educational institutions. It may be worth a further look and that’s what we at TEC, intend to do shortly. Read the rest of this entry »
I was playing with an interesting site recently called Compete.com. Compete.com tracks the US traffic audience of various Web sites. Thanks to you, our visitors, I was pleased to see that TEC has surpassed a number of firms (Gartner and Forrester) over the last several months. To see for yourself, click this compete.com link for the 2010 stats.
As much as I appreciate this graph, it represents the US region specifically. I’d be curious to see where the rest of the world goes for its information about enterprise software issues.
Here’s a bit of trivia for you. If you’re visiting our site from the US, you’re part of the 36% of our audience that is based in North America. The rest of our Web audience comes from Asia - 24%, Europe - 13%, Latin America - 10%, Africa - 8%, Middle East - 6%, and Oceania/Australia - 2%.
We have a lot of new work planned for publishing in 2011, so I hope it proves as useful to everyone as the material from the past year has.
