Keeping your ERP Resolutions

Posted on 4 January 2017 by Cathie Hall

cathie_keeping_your_erp_resolutions.jpgWe all start the year with good intentions of what we will and won’t do, but by mid-January most of us have already broken our resolutions.  As a long distance runner I spend many hours running long distances, and many more training.  I train when it’s cold, dark, wet and windy.  I train when I am on holiday.  I train when I probably should be asleep.  I also need to think about what I need to do to support my training: strength work in the gym, my diet, getting enough sleep, not drinking too much.  The reward comes though when I enter an event and reach my goal.  Not only do I measure success in terms of achieving a specific goal – e.g. running from Edinburgh to Glasgow (which is the challenge for March 2017), it’s also about the positive benefits running has on all aspects of my life.

UX is No Longer Optional

Posted on 6 December 2016 by Kevin Dherman

kevin_ux_is_no_longer_optional.jpgHistorically, enterprise software has had a captive audience. Over the past two decades little has been required to engage users. The very existence of a solution was generally enough for businesses to make use of it. This is no longer the case, with users becoming implicitly more savvy to what is and isn’t user friendly. This has mostly been spurred by easy access to things like consumer applications, increasing the level of end user expectation.

Posted on 29 November 2016 by Darren Edwards
