organizations, the backbone of industrialized societies
for hundreds of years, must adapt to change to remain
competitive. In doing so, they have grown from 'one-man'
workshops into multinational organizations with tens
of thousands of employees. With the advent of computer
technology and the pace of technological advancement,
many manufacturing organizations need to bring their
legacy infrastructure and applications into the Windows
and Internet environments in order to reap their benefits.
core competency of any manufacturing organization lies
in its products. Understandably, many organizations
regard managing their technological infrastructure as
a "necessary evil." The processes required of purchase
requisitions, purchase orders, inventory management
and invoice creation are dependent on a long history
of transactions that have usually occurred within a
legacy system. As the pace of doing business accelerates,
a premium is placed on completing these tasks as rapidly
as possible. Many companies relying on legacy systems
must navigate multiple screens to process a single transaction
and some must use information from multiple legacy applications.
To complete the required tasks at a speed that enables
them to remain competitive in fast-moving markets, companies
can use a MitemView
application to efficiently combine all of this information
into a unified, rich Windows or Web-based interface.
Development, Rapid Deployment
non-invasive approach enables applications to be developed
and deployed very quickly without compromising quality,
reliability, or scalability. The applications can be
as simple or complex as needed and can dramatically
increase the efficiency of legacy application processes.
speed with which an integration strategy can be deployed
depends on the complexities and issues of the processes
involved, but MitemView can be used for applications
such as purchase order requisition systems, invoice
systems, inventory management and client order status
over the Web, to name a few.
to improve efficiency to reduce operating costs and
increase competitiveness, manufacturing organizations
face the tough challenge of accelerating their technology
investment. MitemView gives organizations a means for
effectively delivering a proven, reliable and scalable
