I vincoli creati dai pakages applicativi

Craig Le clair, di Forrester Research, ha pubblicato un bel report intitolato:

Stuck In Cement: When Packaged Apps Create Barriers To Innovation

(Lo potete acquistare qui.)
Lo ha poi commentato nel suo blog qui.

Craig però suggerisce anche una soluzione: il BPMS !!!!!

Prendo in prestito le parole di Ben Farrel di Appian:
Here are some startling facts:
ERP software maintenance fees alone “represented one-third if enterprise IT software budgets in 2010, with license fees accounting for another 25%.” That’s right: just keeping the ERP lights on eats up more than half of the total IT budget.
Perhaps that would be acceptable if ERP software delivered what the business needs today, but Craig shows that it clearly does not. Of ERP and other monolithic packaged apps he states, “These systems have developed inflexible architectures and have become aligned with silos built around business functions that now present a serious barrier to many fast-moving companies.” In other words, the limited extensibility of those apps leaves them stuck in business silos that they then help perpetuate, while required business functions existing in the white space between packaged apps continues to be paper- and email-based, cumbersome and non-standardized.
What’s the Conclusion?
Craig states that, “Enterprises that deployed ERP six to nine years ago are now questioning the budget for upgrades – and they should.” Business has changed dramatically in that time – and the rate of change is increasing. The business “wants more value and is reluctant to invest just to maintain functionality that many already view as lacking.”
What’s the Alternative?
Craig says that what’s required is a “Process-first Perspective” based on “an outside-in focus that starts with the needs of the customer.” To paraphrase again: build your business processes based on what’s going to optimize the customer experience, not based on the limited capabilities of your packaged apps.
How Do You Get There?
Do you need to take a jackhammer to the cement (or concrete) for a massive “rip and replace”? Luckily, no (have you ever used a jackhammer? It’s hard and slow work.). Instead, you can get the new and flexible functionality you need, and breathe new life into those legacy systems, by overlaying your packaged apps with a flexible process layer. In Craig’s words, “In the future, companies will address process and application gaps not by customizing on-premises software, but by linking best-of-breed applications using accessible and adaptable processes built on top of Dynamic Case Management or BPM Suites.”
What’s the Next Step?
Modern BPM software, with native mobile and social capabilities, is creating a seismic shift in corporate IT. 
Quindi diamoci da fare e iniziamo progetti BPM se vogliamo uscire dall'impasse, e tutti sappiamo quanto ne abbiamo bisogno!!!.

When applied in cool, wet weather, it can cause burning
of the leaves and the russeting of fruit. Native plants
or at least plants adapted to similar conditions as your region
will have a better chance of growing and thriving.

Subtle gardening themes act upon the subconscious, and merely give the observer
a pleasant feeling.

Make sure to evenly cover your hair, especially the tips.
Comb the excess oil through the dampened hair,
making sure to cover the ends of the hair. com/hair-growth-products-top-things-to-know-before-purchasing-a-product ]hair growth products visit our website howtomakeyourhairgrow-fasterandlonger.
From my experience, it is quite difficult to style hair
immediately after a hot oil treatment, so you might want to skip the curling iron or hot
rollers. * Lavender Oil — prevents further hair
loss and improves the health and quality of the hair.

So there are many virtual airlines that you can choose
from and be their management. These originally were quartz crystals from the River Rhine in a region noted for gem-cutting, particularly the town of Idar-Oberstein.
After February 27, The Sim Online servers were shut down
and it is now known as EA land, old account holders can still come
back of course, and its the same game. The history of diamond
simulants starts with the history of real diamonds which
have to be known and treasured before some enterprising person
gets around to imitating them with a cheap substitute.
3) Physical parameters: The simulators are almost real, but actually
they are on the ground, I mean around the sea level.
