The PMO Conflict: So Much Promise, So Little Alignment
The PMO Conflict: So Much Promise, So Little Alignment.Papers and Other Package to Use In Your Complex System of PMO Conflict. When a project management office (PMO) operates well, the impact can be extraordinary. All too often, though, the PMO doesn’t become a clear asset. In order to avoid the worst-case scenario, PMO team members often become internal advisors with marginal impact and no authority. What can be done to avoid this? And what are the keys to successful PMO implementations?
: VERSUS FREEDOM Another classic conflict brought about by the PMO is the fear that the PMO will inhibit the project teams that are doing the daily work. The thinking can run anywhere from “this is just more administrative overhead” to “we know what we’re doing and don’t need meddling from management.” The basic argument at work here is that dispersed and distributed delivery teams are better suited to make prioritization decisions about where they should focus their energies.

Enterprise Application Alternatives: What You Should Be Asking Oracle and SAP
Despite challenges, both SAP and Oracle will be formidable forces in the hosting space, because of their intimate application knowledge, their infrastructure, organizational stability, and vast capital. However, SMEs should approach this decision with due diligence.
: may face a channel conflict with other Oracle ASPs, and system integrators (SIS). Also, while there is a price parity of $120 $150 (USD) per user, per month between the two offerings, SAP has the much broader, vertically-oriented functional scope of the mySAP ERP suite, whereas as many as 80 percent of Oracle hosting instances are still limited to Oracle Financials .

to resolve a war conflict we can us the army that is are not a solution. It is a tool of war or a defence tool. Equally to negotiate uses a diplomatic tool. Software is software, no-more no-less so why not just call it that. And of course we all agree it is not just technology but includes people with skills to set it up and train us how to use it. And to put it into a process requires consulting and setup for the change which can add to the effort. But in the end what we end up with is still just a softw

I Know What You Did Last Week - But I ll Never Tell
Internet advertising is under attack from privacy advocates and private citizens as DoubleClick reveals that it can correlate surfing behavior with individual identities. DoubleClick points out that this is only possible when the personal identification is provided voluntarily. Opponents question whether the average surfer understands the implications of providing information.
: skirmishes in the privacy conflict (see sidebar) this may be the first real battle. We doubt that the lawsuit itself will have much effect; it will probably drag through the courts for years. It will probably end up at the U.S. Supreme Court, which continues to struggle with the extent to which there are implied or explicit constitutional rights to privacy. But there is a possibility that publicity over the issue could affect both the ongoing Presidential campaign and the general level of user acceptance

Security Breach: Now What?
When people's lives or financial transactions are at risk, proper Security Incident handling is of extreme importance.
: proceeding and protecting can conflict with pursuing and prosecuting. If you have customer systems that need to be repaired according to a certain timeframe, and do not have standby disks, reformatting and reinstalling a disk most assuredly tampers with and destroys the evidence. Most likely a transfer of affected files from disk to tape, or writeable CD, will not stand up in court as permissible evidence. More often than not, most companies decide that proceeding and protecting is more advantageous than

Oracle continues respond to the changing requirements of the market, by addressing the need for Wireless Internet support, application servers, and expanded ASP support, while using new pricing models to maintain and expand its existing customer base.
: and a likely channel conflict with other Oracle ASPs, as well as with SI partners, Oracle might become a fearsome player in the ASP market.
