Re: Infor's Plot in the ERP Graveyard
Ha! Love the Graveyard graphic. Interesting to see how so many of SAP's acqusitions are just one time around; I wonder if that is a good or bad thing in terms of shaking out all the integration points?

Re: Infor's Plot in the ERP Graveyard
Just a nit on "ERP Graveyard", it is not an independent analysis of ERP's, but yet another sales tool (or really sales slander".  It lists many ERPs that have never been dead, and other's (like Infor VISUAL ERP) that has had more development resources and great releases of it since Infor purchased it then in the 5-8 years prior.   ERP graveyard, was started by a Open Source ERP software company, just b/c it's open source doesn't mean they don't want to make $, and compete, and this is just another tool to do just that.

Infor's Plot in the ERP Graveyard
If you haven't seen the ERP Graveyard, take a look. Infor makes Oracle look lazy where ERP acquisitions are concerned. The "Graveyard" moniker isn't quite fair, as many of these ERP systems are alive and well. Many others are Walking Dead that haven't been updated in years. Still others are truly dead - long since abandoned by customers. The Graveyard also includes things that really aren't ERP systems, like Hyperion and Siebel, for example.

Infor has a tough task deciding which ERP systems to keep moving forward and which to let go of without pushing customers away. Phillip's regime has been nothing but good for Infor and Infor customers so far as I've seen. Any Infor customers care to share their views?

nice addition
"Virtually all web applications require a load-balancing mechanism for scale-out and high availability. To address this requirement, Windows Azure provides a built-in load balancing layer in its architecture. In fact, the only way to access virtual machines created in Azure from a client machine on the Internet is to send the data via the built-in load balancer."

A great addition, I've seen sytems that use loadbal.* as the initial gateway, only for then users to bookmark server1.* after they get logged in.

When it comes to managing data, donít look at backup and archiving systems as burdens and cost centers. A well-designed archive can enhance data protection and restores, ease search and e-discovery efforts, and save money by intelligently moving data from expensive primary storage systems.
