Just released: Profit May 2012


The May 2012 issue of Profit is now available online.

In this issue, we focused on how the ever-changing dynamics of the marketplace put new demands on IT and business managers—requiring they stay nimble and creative to keep pace. So even after a successful project launches, the best leaders are looking to the horizon to identify new challenges and opportunities.

And they expect that the IT systems that support them will reflect their needs. Business processes enshrined in core enterprise resource functionality must match the expectations of customers and partners. IT access points must address the needs of actual users.

Continuous improvement must be a philosophy shared across the organization. And any long-term IT strategy must have flexibility and scalability in its very DNA.

Updates from COLLABORATE 2012


COLLABORATE 2012 really gets going today, with a couple Oracle announcements already hitting the wires (one that involves a great customer we'll be featuring in the May issue of Profit). I'll be visiting an Oracle usability focus group, chatting with OAUG president Mark Clark, getting an update on big JD Edwards announcements from Lyle Ekdahl and John Schiff. Plus, iPhone photos from the Profit redesign launch party tomorrow night!

In other words, watch this space. I'll make regular updates as the show goes on. -A
