What’s the Biggest Problem in IT?
- First there was Enterprise Resource Planning – ERP applications that promised to take care of every aspect of your business. They were expensive and complex. To take advantage of their massive capability required further investment in consultancy and programming.
- Then came the Cloud – software was ‘rented’ rather than purchased outright. The market became fragmented, flooded with Platform as a a Service solutions and single solution products for project management, timekeeping, mail management, accounting ….These looked inexpensive on the surface, but they operate in silos.
- The answer to these combined problems is to link all IT systems and enable all databases to talk to each other. Sounds impossible – or expensive!
