“CRM ERP integration” can mean a lot of different things to a lot of different people. Since this is a such a broad characterization of the interoperability of disparate systems, it is helpful to break the topic of CRM to ERP integration into its different components or touchpoints in order to better define what ERP integration really means for a specific organization.
Some ERP to CRM integration touchpoints can be handled by the default functionality within an off-the-shelf CRM to ERP integration package. While these types of packages can significantly simplify certain integration components, there’s always some level of configuration required. Also, the “one size fits all” solution may not always be exactly that — modifications to core integration functionality may need to be made.
Other integration touchpoints may require custom functionality to be built out, because a particular integration requirement is not common enough for an integration package vendor to have pre-baked it into their solution.
It’s important to identify each potential integration touchpoint and then determine whether a given touchpoint applies to your business. If it does, the next step is to determine whether the benefit to that particular connection outweighs the cost of implementing or developing it. Let’s look at some common CRM ERP integration touchpoints.
wishful thinking anyway. good luck to us.

SAN JOSE, Calif. – Google is preparing for the possibility it may shift its massive data centers from Intel x86 to IBM Power servers. It also is preparing for the possibility it may shift to ARM servers, but it’s not quite as far along on that path.
The search giant gave a peak at just how prepared it is to move to IBM Power servers at the annual Open Power Summit here. It has now ported to the Power8 server it developed two years ago many Google apps and most of Google’s infrastructure software.
“For good software developers enabling Power is just modifying a flag in a config file and off they go,” said Maire Mahony, an

SAP AG has agreed to buy Business Objects SA for about #$%$4.8 billion (US$6.78 billion), a surprise move that breaks with SAP's traditional strategy of avoiding large company acquisitions.
The deal, announced in a hastily called press conference on Sunday evening, is designed to accelerate SAP's growth with the addition of thousands of new customers and a new product line to address the fast-growing market for business intelligence (BI) software.
Beefing Up Business
"The biggest driver was definitely growing new business," SAP CEO Henning Kagermann said of the acquisition.

SAP offer more than 25 industry-specific ERP solutions, which provide a tailored system to help give your company an overview of industry-specific business processes. To help define the requirements of individual industry sectors, industry solution maps were created in cooperation with industry-specific user groups, partners, and SAP development teams. SAP currently offers the following industry sets:
IBM and Business Objects have signed a new joint development and product distribution deal, for pre-integrated data warehousing and business intelligence.
Under the terms of the agreement, IBM will include a starter edition of the Business Objects business intelligence package with DB2 and DB2 Warehouse. Business Objects in return will distribute and resell IBM's DB2 Warehouse with its XI software and CFO performance management applications.
"Customers are seeking ways to innovate and derive greater business value from their information," said Ambuj Goyal, general manager IBM Information Management. "To help meet this challenge, we are extending our partnership with Business Objects to accelerate the introduction of new Information on Demand solutions."
wags.......and business objects and the xml/sec issues of vcsy.c om.? hmmm.and is the tivoli workload scheduler to be optimized for z systems....linux for xml............wags.
Tivoli Workload Scheduler for z/OS can support several z/OS systems. The tracker collects information about activity on the z/OS system it supports, such as when a job has started, or when a print has been processed. This information is recorded in an event record and sent to the controlling system. Each event contains a time stamp, which records the date and time that the event record was created.
The systems that Tivoli Workload Scheduler for z/OS supports might be in different time zones. The event record contains a field that specifies the difference between the local time of the system that collected the record and Greenwich mean time (GMT). This time difference is automatically calculated and placed in event records. If you intend to change the local clock GMT offset by using the z/OS SET CLOCK command , all Tivoli Workload Scheduler for z/OS systems running on the affected z/OS should be shut down and then restarted after the SET CLOCK command has been issued. The GMT offset is stored when the subsystem is started.
To avoid shutting down and restarting the Tivoli Workload Scheduler for z/OS systems for daylight savings time, set record 90 in member SMFPRM0 of the SYS1.PARMLIB. At daylight savings time, the time is updated automatically. See "Updating SMF Parameters" in the Installation Guide for more information.
The controller processes event records from all the systems in your Tivoli Workload Scheduler for z/OS complex. Because all event records contain a local time difference field, the controller can convert time stamps to the local time of the controlling system. This is necessary because all time values stored in Tivoli Workload Scheduler for z/OS databases and data sets are expressed in the local time of the controlling system.
Time values appearing printed reports are also expressed in the local time of the Tivoli Workload Scheduler for z/OS controlling processor.

if the tws patent was voided by the uspto examination of vcsy 744.....their whole product vertical tumbles like dominos....so, without sounding too elated, more dd/watching of this area is needed....
good luck to us.
