    Potential future earnings

    I don't really understand your statement about
    XML because I'm not a tech guru in this
    field.

    However, I do understand your question about wireless
    demand for legacy data. I am a mechanical engineer with
    some experience in the manufacturing world. I can tell
    you that one of the big pushes that are being made by
    corporations is in the realm of inventory management. Much of
    the productivity gains which Alan Greenspan credits
    for keeping inflation down are a product of large
    company's improving their ability to manage their
    inventory. At this point, much of this inventory management
    is done using databases residing on legacy systems
    (remember we are talking large companies here).

    In
    some cases, these companies have already used Jacada
    to make the interface more usable and intuitive for
    their part flow management personnel. I believe that in
    the future part flow will be more and more JIT
    (just-in time) in an effort to minimize inventories to
    razor thin margins. In such an atmosphere a factory
    line worker would take a part he has just received and
    he is about to use on a larger assembly and �scan�
    it using a bar code reader or Radio Frequency tag
    reader to read a �tag number� which uniquely identifies
    that part. A computer communicating with this bar code
    reader would take the �tag number� and match it up with
    the part number from a database and remove that part
    from a �part inventory� and add it to an �assembly
    inventory�. It would also notify suppliers, transportation,
    and anyone else who needs to know that Part# 123 has
    been used and we need another Part# 123 in X minutes.
    The effect of such a system is that you know where
    all of the parts are in the factory and you don�t
    need ANY inventory if your suppliers can be
    co-located. This increases profit margins for the companies
    and in doing so reduces inflation. (If profit margins
    are higher you can afford to pay workers
    more.)

    The trick is you can�t do any of this without
    Jacada�s software if you want a net-like GUI. At least not
    so far as I know.
