We’re always looking for software that can help solve problems.
Think about it. No problem, no special solution. No special solution, no consultant to implement it. So consultants are always looking for problems, and then figuring out how to solve them.
It may not always be the easiest way to pay the bills, but it’s what we do.
So here’s some of the software we’ve been checking out recently. In the next week or two we’ll talk more about each of these:
- DQS is an enterprise solution now in testing that promises to integrate multiple corporate systems into one virtual “über-system.” We are very interested.
- Enterprise Optimizer claims to accurately model entire enterprises and figure out the real-world consequences of business decisions. Many of our customers do this sort of thing; we’ll be looking a little more closely at this offering.
- PALO is a new public domain read-write in-memory OLAP server with an Excel front end that looks alarmingly similar to the familiar TM1. What is it and what does it mean for users and developers?
We’ll also be talking with some of the personalities in our world getting their views on software directions.
This web site is new, and we’re very interested in your responses and ideas. If you have something of interest to suggest, if you like, or if you violently object to what we’re putting out here, please drop us a line at Vector Space.
