The strategic goal of any production and utilities department is to maximize production. Machinery and equipment is run continuously, or in batches. The equipment can be complex, as in nuclear reactors, or as simple as lathe machines. The goal to maximize production is determined by the availability of the equipment and its condition.

The strategic goal of the maintenance department servicing production and utilities departments is to ensure the reliability and availability of the machines. The operational goals of the maintenance department require availability and scheduling of employees for work orders, maintaining inventories for the parts, and the analysis of maintenance-related problems.

Equipment maintenance management software helps achieve the strategic and operational goals of a maintenance organization. These software packages are available as stand-alone applications customized for specific requirements, or integrated end-to-end solutions.

At the strategic level, equipment MMS helps top management to make decisions about the purchase of equipment by providing data and analysis of the cost of managing the assets, and by providing data about the vendor and analysis of the equipment provided by various vendors.

At the operations level, equipment MMS helps manage the maintenance schedule of the equipment. The software helps in the preventive and predictive maintenance by analyzing the historic data of the previous maintenance work orders. It also helps decide the availability of the equipment and the duration of the work. An integrated solution helps in optimizing the inventories by determining the parts usage and reorder time.

Equipment MMS is ideally suited for small and medium-sized enterprises for which the entire integrated solutions may be very expensive. The decision to install equipment MMS should be guided by the requirements of the organizations and the features of the software.

It is often difficult to identify an infected e-mail message. The way modern viruses and mass mailing internet worms function, messages can seem to arrive from friends or colleagues. In reality most infected messages are being automatically sent by another infected machine who has no idea their machine even has a problem. Since the virus or worm pretend to be the owner of the infected computer it can be hard for you when you get unexpected email messages from them.

Here are a few important things to watch for:

1) E-mail messages from people you don’t know (including and especially SPAM). These are usually the culprits that put a virus on your computer.

2) E-mail messages from friends or family that you were not expecting (especially if they contain attachments). It is possible that these may not be from people you know, but may actually be spam messages.

3) Attachments in an email with subject lines that seem inappropriate or strange, even if it’s from someone you know. For example, an email from your retired father who is on a beach in Mexio titled “Update on system report” is suspicious.

4) You should NEVER EVER launch an attachment that ends with an .exe, .pif, .com, .bat, or .scr extension until you have scanned it with up-to-date virus scanner. Even files ending with .doc, and .xls (word and excel documents) can carry macro viruses and should be scanned. It does not matter if you completely 100% trust the person it came from. SCAN IT.

5) Never open SPAM email. Spam email is too easy to copy and use to send a nasty virus. I’m not saying spammers send viruses, but virus senders/creators do use spam-like messages to send their viruses, Trojans, and internet worms around.

6) If you’re not 100% sure the email is legitimate, call the sender and ask before opening the attachment. If you’re sure you’ve received an e-mail message with a virus, you should delete the email WITHOUT opening the email or the attachment. If it is important, it can always be resent.

7) Email is becoming the #1 method for viruses, worms and Trojan horses to spread. Take extra special care with your email, and you will not only protect yourself, but prevent yourself from accidentally becoming a spreader of virus loaded email messages.

The smartest thing to do is simply install a very affordable antivirus program (like Norton, McAfee, or PC-cillin) and set it to automatically scan all incoming and outgoing email messages and attachments. This way you protect your own computer, and make sure you don’t forward any infected messages to your friends and family.

The most important thing you have to realize is that viruses cannot get on your computer by themselves. You do have to put them there by opening files that can contain the harmful viruses. They could wipe out your hard drive, which could be detrimental for you if you have important files stored there and for which you don’t have a back up disk.

If you do get a virus on your computer, you don’t have to panic. If a virus is active in the memory, the anti-virus software may not be able to detect it. If you really want to make sure your computer doesn’t have a virus, turn it off and reboot it using a disk that you know doesn’t contain any virus such as your antivirus software’s recovery disk.

Enterprise Content Management and Enterprise Reporting Practices

Word Count:

Summary:
In a large business, many things will be going on in many different areas. It will be impossible to understand what is really going on based on personal observations alone. Analytical reports based on specific data bring out the nuances of ground realities.

Article Body:
The ECM Association ,AIIM, defines ECM as: “…the technologies used to capture, manage, store, preserve, and deliver content and documents related to organizational processes. ECM tools and strategies allow the management of an organization’s unstructured information, wherever that information exists.”

The focus of the definition above is on tools and technologies. AIIM itself emphasizes that while tools are important, it is the way that they are used that is important. Content must be managed in a way that furthers the organization’s goals.

According to AIIM, the four primary areas in which ECM helps organization are: Compliance, Collaboration, Cost and Continuity.

In each of the areas, you must have clear strategies and policies before you start using ECM tools. Strategies and policies are derived from organizational goals and your particular environment.

COMPLIANCE

Compliance with regulatory requirements involves costs. The variety of regulations, and the ongoing legislation of new regulations and requirements, adds to the costs. Only a proactive strategy developed with the involvement of legal, technology and administrative personnel can help minimize these costs. This kind of a proactive approach will bring out possibilities for using ECM tools to ensure compliance with applicable regulations at a maximum of convenience and minimum of costs.

COLLABORATION

Collaboration helps people with different expertise to contribute to the overall business results. Overall business results are helped by finding faster ways to get your product or service to the market, reducing your operational costs and completing activities and processes quicker and in a more streamlined fashion.

ECM provides tools like instant messaging, emails, online meetings and whiteboards to facilitate collaborative working. These tools make it possible to participate instantly, or at a time of your convenience. You can review the up-to-date status of a problem or solution, ask queries, make suggestions or presentations and get feedback. All these allow you to get involved and contribute meaningfully.

COSTS

When you start thinking of how ECM can help with costs, the first thing you might notice will be the cost of the ECM system itself – an addition to cost rather than a reduction. However, if you have a proper strategy in place, even tentatively, you will also be able to evaluate how ECM can help you achieve larger-scale business results at lower costs.

The key is clarifying your objectives and their implications. Don’t let existing information processing technology constraints limit your expectations in these matters. With ECM, information can be made available on tap by all those who need it (and are authorized to access it). This would include not only employees in your organization, but also suppliers, customers, and governments outside it.

You won’t have to spend most of your time actively contacting everybody and conveying your requirements or meeting theirs. The result will be not only savings in time, but also better quality results in all areas. You will soon begin to see how ECM can help you operate on a much higher scale and at much less relative costs.

CONTINUITY

Keeping your business going 24/7/365 is critical in today’s global corporations, and even many smaller organizations. Natural or man-made disasters must not be allowed to disrupt operations too seriously.

Achieving this objective will first involve developing clear strategies and policies. You will determine which content is business critical, how quickly each type of content must be restored, how such restoration is to be arranged for, and all the other incidentals involved.

ECM, with its comprehensive range of capabilities, will then help you implement the strategies and policies.

CONCLUSION

ECM provides a great set of tools and technologies. It can help achieve great business results through increasing speed of marketing and other operations, mainly through faster access to relevant information.

However, you need to sit down with your people and develop clear strategies and policies, un-constrained by present information system limitations, before you start implementing Enterprise Content Management Systems.

Article Body:
Extracting complete and unaltered information from mobie phones and smartphones is vital for any investigation. A cell phone can be a ‘black box’ providing invaluable information for a criminal investigation. A doubt in the authenticity of data extracted from the device immediately dismisses any value the data could have as court eidence, and negates its usefulness for investigation purposes.

Modern mobile phones contain much more information than most people realize. Symbian OS based smartphones store data such as call list, SMS events, GPRS and Wi.Fi data connections in system event logs, but no access to such data is provided with any of the original manufacturer’s consumer tools or commercially available third.party alternatives. Sony Ericsson smartphones store even more information, and have even less extraction support from the manufacturer and the third parties.

It reduces the clutter, removes junk and makes your Registry more compact, allowing Windows run faster and smoother.

All of these optimization features don’t look like Reg Organizer is a direct replacement of Windows Regedit, but hold on! Unlike the numerous competing registry optimizers, Reg Organizer actually serves as a replacement to the primitive registry editor included with Windows. Giving its users a way to conveniently edit Windows Registry, Reg Organizer provides all browsing and editing features available in Regedit, and more! Unlike the minimalistic Regedit tool, Reg Organizer offers a fully featured graphical user interface for performing basic and advanced manipulations with the computer System Registry.

You can find all registry keys related to a certain application, or run Search and Replace to substitute certain registry values with other ones. Search and Replace Registry comes handy when moving applications from one disk or folder to another, letting you change paths quickly and easily.

Managing the Registry does not end with editing, searching and replacing. Set Reg Organizer to handle .REG files, and you’ll be able to actually preview the .REG files before or instead of importing them into the System Registry. Defragment and compress Windows Registry to optimize computer performance, change undocumented Windows settings without the risk of messing up the Registry, and do many other exciting things you would never do with regedit.exe!

A report by research and consulting firm Forrester Research mentions that, jobs which are lost in United states because of software outsourcing are primarily low salary IT jobs.

Keywords:

Article Body:
A report by research and consulting firm Forrester Research mentions that, jobs which are lost in United states because of software outsourcing are primarily low salary IT jobs. These jobs are like software programming or computer support specialists or computer operators. But on the other hand, high end high paying jobs like system analysts, network analysts and research analysts have seen continuous and stronger growth. Jobs in this niche market is growing steadily at the rate of 4 to 5% every year. These jobs which require stronger domain knowledge and knowledge of internal working of IT systems and business process are difficult to software outsource.

Which jobs will not get affected by software outsourcing

Jobs for software engineers for the position of system analysis and application development implementation are also growing at the rate of 6% a year. This is because, though software outsourcing can be done to India or other offshore software development locations, customers require in-house staff for customization and maintenance of purchased software.

Why Software outsourcing will decrease

Report also mention that, attraction of cost saving in software outsourcing is yet very high and because of that, increase in jobs like software programmer will be very minimal. Also, because of very low increase in software programming jobs, salary rise will also hardly 1% in next few years. Salary of computer operators and database administrators will also grow at barely 1% rate. On the other hand, report also mentions about jobs which will have highest salary rise. Salaries of computer research scientists and information system managers will have highest growth which will be around 3.5% every year. While salaries of analysts and system administrators will grow at the rate of 2 to 3% every year.
Conclusion about offshore software development

Report concludes with note that software outsourcing which has major costs saving today will decrease by 2008. Because in US salary rise will be very less. While in India and other offshore software development destination, because of lack of availability of resources, salary rise will be very high. This will decrease the difference between salary of Indian and US software engineer and eventually decrease costs saving. So many companies will prefer in-house resources rather then software outsourcing.

CRM is the accepted purpose of Customer Relationship Management is to enable organizations to better manage their customers through the introduction of reliable processes and procedures for interacting with those customers.

In today’s competitive business environment, a successful CRM software solution cannot be implemented by only installing and integrating CRM software application designed to support CRM processes. A holistic approach to CRM is vital for an effective and efficient CRM policy. This approach includes training of employees, a modification of business processes based on customers’ needs and an adoption of a relevant IT CRM system (including software and maybe hardware) and/or usage of IT CRM Services that enable the organization or company to follow its CRM strategy. CRM Services can even replace the acquisition of additional hardware or CRM software application licences.

The term CRM "Customer Relationship Management" is used to describe either the "CRM software" or the whole business strategy (or lack of one) oriented on customer needs. The second one is the description which is correct. The main misconception of CRM is that it is only a software solution application, instead of whole business strategy.

Major areas of CRM Software System Solutions focus on service automated processes, personal information gathering and processing, and self-service. It attempts to integrate and automate the various customer serving processes within a company.

Special regressions of this data can be very beneficial for the marketing division of a firm

A integrated CRM software system is often also known as "front office solutions." This is because they deal directly with the customer.

Using E-Learning in ERP Systems Implementation
E-Learning and Its Benefits.

In today’s world, information technologies are actively used in many spheres of life, including learning. In particular, e-learning courses are becoming more and more popular. Computer-based training saves you time, money, and effort when implementing such intricate software solutions as MS Dynamics AX or NAV. This way of studying can be useful not only for individuals, but also for large corporations.

In this article we will explain the advantages of online training during the implementation of complicated software products in general and Microsoft Dynamics products in particular. So, why should you use e-learning, and what benefits can it bring to your organization?

Theory and practice. Online courses allow students to gain theoretical knowledge and ground it in practice on the spot.

Knowledge assessment. Assess your knowledge by answering online test questions.

Interactivity. Software emulations enable the students to work with the program interface without installation.

Flexibility. Learn any time you wish within the 3-month access period.

Reasonable prices. Distance education for Microsoft Dynamics products costs less than offline classes.

Implement ERP Systems with E-Learning

These days, ERP systems develop so fast that it’s hard to ensure that employees are properly trained on them. Traditional trainings are not sufficient, and that’s why a new technology needs to be introduced.

Trainings:
http://www.speedteach.com/dynamics-nav-training.aspx
http://www.speedteach.com/dynamics-ax-training.aspx

When implementing Microsoft Dynamics products, namely ERP systems, most companies hire experienced professionals to do this job, which involves additional expenses. Instead of this you can use e-learning to train the specialists who are already employed in your company. When correctly integrated with ERP processes, a comprehensive e-learning solution makes it possible to increase knowledge and improve skills for both internal and external users of the system.

However, in no circumstances should you put the offline courses aside. E-learning solutions cannot completely substitute conventional classroom training, so you can effectively combine online and offline education for your specialists. For example, the theory can be taught traditionally, while the practical tasks can be done by the means of online trainings. Moreover, if someone of your employees need to conduct trainings on MS Dynamics software, he or she can effectively use e-learning courses to prepare beforehand.
