Article Series on Design Studio, Part 9: Putting It All Together

Our focus, in this article series, is to show you how you can use Design Studio to make business processes simpler and easier-to-perform. In a previous article (see http://www.danalytics.com/guru/letter/archive/2007-11.htm) we focused on using Design Studio’s Page Designer to render a simple list of vendors and display their open invoices. Taking this concept even further--by combining Portal Page Designer, a Portal Page Data Query (DME) object and a form object (a “formlet”) customized using Form Designer--this article demonstrates the delivery of a comprehensive solution to a real business problem. I’m extremely grateful to The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP) for letting me share this story with you.  Read More..

Inforum 2014

Although I didn’t attend Inforum 2014, this is the backdrop against which I watched the keynotes via streaming video and digested the executive/analyst briefings. “’Designing emotion into the product is now something you really have to think about explicitly and measure yourself against’, says Brad Smith, CEO of Intuit, the maker of personal finance and […]

We’re Number One!

It’s not often that one gets to say “we are the best”, but Medstar Montgomery Medical Center (MMMC) now has that honor. I’ve had the privilege of working with MMMC [formerly Montgomery General Hospital] for over a decade.  Truly a fantastic group of IT professionals, and I’m proud to be part of their team!  So, […]

Another Update on Alleged Patent Infringement

Back in 2011, Lawson responded to an Alleged Patent Infringement by replacing Requisition Self-Service (RSS) with Requisition Center (RQC). In the meantime, Lawson has been acquired by Infor, but the patent case still lingers. Here’s an update. Some of you might have received this notice from Infor, and are unsure how this might impact your […]

The Untimely Passing of a Legend

We learned today that our dear friend, Matthew Allbee, passed away over the weekend after a long battle with cancer. The last time I saw Matt was just a couple of months ago at Inforum, and while he certainly wasn’t well, I had no idea it would be the last time we would talk. I […]
