EDGE

In the September issue of EDGE, we look at the complexities around getting information out of an enterprise-resource planning (ERP) system.

Should you go with a closed-loop solution (software tools are bundled into an ERP system) or look for an independent third-party option?

Does your ERP system satisfy the information needs of executives in your financial, human resources and manufacturing/suppky chain departments?

Is such software just too complex to serve basic information needs, and are their other alternatives to guiding the decision-making process.

Read EDGE in September and find out.

Communications & Networking

Wi-Fi phones are becoming more popular in the health care industry, partly due to restrictions on cellphone use in hospitals. But some analysts say voice over Wi-Fi vendors are rolling out products more quickly than the market can absorb them. Find out more in Wi-Fi feature, which will be published in the August issue of Communications & Networking magazine.

The August issue also includes a case study on an investment management firm that set up a converged voice and data network in less than four months.

In the fall, C&N will publish features on networked storage in the September issue, utility computing in the October issue and remote access in the November issue.
