A carefully executed data migration plan and the right migration technology can make cloud a viable option for scalable data storage.

ian mastersWritten by Ian Masters

As organizations continue to amass vast amounts of data, cloud has come to the fore as a solution that can meet growing storage demands. A notable 64 percent of respondents to Vision Solutions 2015 State of Resilience Report, which surveyed IT professionals, said that their organizations currently use cloud services. The number has more than doubled since 2011, when just 23 percent of respondents used the cloud.

Technology Focus: If Your Data Eggs Are in One Basket, You Should at Least Scramble Them PDF Print E-mail

It's never too late to protect your data and apps with software encryption…until it is too late.

john gristWritten by John Ghrist

It may be only a slight exaggeration to say that it seems like hardly a week goes by without news of yet another organization suffering a data breach. With world commerce coming to rely so heavily on moving large amounts of data rapidly between computers, the benefits of stealing that data has become irresistible to some.

9 Things to Consider When Choosing an ERP Package on IBM i PDF Print E-mail
Application Software - Enterprise Resource Planning / Financial
Written by Ross Freeman   
Monday, 13 July 2015 00:00

Selecting an ERP package is an event of huge significance. Considerations include functional fit, vendor capability, and implementation cost. But selecting an ERP package that runs on IBM i requires some specific considerations. We'll call this being "Viably i."

ross freemanWritten by Ross Freeman

In any ERP selection, a primary concern is that your ERP vendor will be around for the long-term. The choice to buy an ERP isn't a transaction; it's a relationship. As with any relationship, you should expect it to last for a long time. You can expect your ERP partner to be enhancing and expanding the product and fully supporting you year after year. They can expect you to take full advantage of the enhancements and stay on the current release. That provides maximum value to you and keeps the relationship healthy.

8 Very Good Reasons to Use Your Power i for Shipping PDF Print E-mail
Application Software - General

Consolidate PC-based shipping/transportation management systems (TMS) on IBM's Power i platform.

Written by Varsity Logistics, Inc.

Editor's note: This article introduces the white paper 8 Very Good Reasons to Use Your Power i for Shipping free for download from the MC White Paper Center.

 

Many companies in manufacturing, wholesale, or retail already use the IBM Power i to integrate most mission-critical enterprise data and business processes. In large, medium, and small companies, a decision was made to support enterprise applications on the Power i because of its reliability, low cost of ownership, superior processing power, flexibility, expandability, and security.

 

So, given the above, it may be surprising to hear that many of these companies still run their shipping and transportation management applications (one of their most mission-critical applications) on a collection of PCs and servers. Why would that be?

Technology Focus: IBM i Accounting Applications Stay on the Money PDF Print E-mail
Application Software - Enterprise Resource Planning / Financial
Written by John Ghrist   
Monday, 15 June 2015 00:00

If you want accounting software that runs on IBM i servers rather than directly on client PCs, there are still plenty of options.

john gristWritten by John Ghrist

If there's one area of application software that typifies the divide between running business software on a bunch of networked PCs as opposed to on a centralized server (although possibly with PC clients), it's probably accounting. QuickBooks and similar PC-based apps are commonplace at small businesses worldwide, and the conversation about moving enterprise financial tracking away from a server environment probably takes place at one company or another somewhere on a daily basis.

Technology Focus: Apps for Modernizing the IT Help Desk PDF Print E-mail
Application Software - General
Written by John Ghrist   
Monday, 20 April 2015 00:00

There are software solutions for providing help desk services that are more economical than building a custom application.

john gristWritten by John Ghrist

While it can be a major challenge to provide help-desk services, there's rarely much discussion of software applications that can manage that function, commonly referred to as IT service management, or ITSM. Part of the problem is that regardless of whether one is speaking of helping users of internal IT services, customers of various software applications, or clients of full-blown cloud-services, there's always a strong element of the "our requirements are unique, and no off-the-shelf product can do everything we need" syndrome.
