Should Your ERP Meal Plan Include the McCloud?


I have observed the enterprise software industry over a number of years, conducting research and reading tons of publications on ERP and other enterprise software issues, and I have noticed that cloud vendors and industry analysts frequently use analogies to describe software offerings and, more recently, to help businesses better understand the cloud, or to inspire trust and interest in cloud

Mobile Content and Document Management Best Practices and Decision Checklist


Every minute of every day, employees move business files onto their mobile devices so they can work at home, on the road, or at client sites. The result is the equivalent of a mobile scrum of risks, redundancies, and wasted efforts and resources. A result of the huge popularity of mobile phones and tablets and the bring your own device (BYOD) trend, the large number of mobile devices being used for work purposes and the large amount of associated content being moved with these devices means that businesses are at risk. Mobile device management provides a first defense, but it’s not enough—businesses need to lock down the content and documents with policy-based controls to decrease their level of risk and ensure comprehensive enterprise mobility management.
