The Clarion Live presentation this Friday is going to address the 7 killers of IT. These include:
** Project Management
** Information Systems Planning
** Data Centered Development and Management
** Data Model Manufacturing
** Business Information Systems Environment
** Business Information Systems Manufacturing
** Enterprise Architecture Development
Each of these topics is addressed and shows how they all fit together in an overall framework that is characterized by integration, interoperability, and non redundancy.
The presentation of each of the 7 topics includes:
** The issues that have to be solved
** The solution's engineering
** The enumeration of the work products created
** The computation of the ROI that makes each approach worth the effort
** The features, advantages and benefits
** How the topic addresses productivity, quality, risk and cost
** How and where Clarion fits in each ROI solution.
This two hour presentation provides an overview of all 7 ROIs. Attendees, thereafter are welcome to request a more in-depth presentation of each ROI including actual work products and detailed accomplishment steps.
Mike Gorman is happy to schedule these full presentations as individual ROI Clarion Live presentations, or if your organization desires a one-on-one presentation, a Go-To-Meeting presentation that lasts from a few to a half-day can be done.
As you all know, Russ Eggen died this past December 24, 2016. Many of our community participated in the GoFundMe 01 and 02. From Russ and his family, these two GoFundMe efforts were dramatically helpful.
Russ’s last few months were very stressful and painful. He held strong, clear-eyed on the ultimate destination, and became very much ready for his journey.
Russ's family, that is, his house-mate Celeste, his sister, Julie, and his nephews and nieces were all with him when he embarked.
On Friday, January 13, 2017 Mark Riffey, Rick Smith, and Mike Gorman will be hosting a "Russ Stories" webinar session.
The session will start at 11 AM Eastern, which is 8 AM Pacific. It will last no longer than 45 minutes.
Here is the link to sign up:
Our objective is to record various "Russ stories" that you may know throughout all these years. Stories that are personal, Clarion related, and TopSpeed and SoftVelocity related are all welcome.
We will record the session and make a version of it available on the Clarion Live Wiki space. We will also provide a link to Russ's family.
As to the general approach, as needed or requested, we'll give over control to different persons who may want to say and/or show something relevant.
If you would like to present please send me an email at: firstname.lastname@example.org so we can call you on you appropriately. Needless to say, make sure that your head phones and materialis already at the ready.
Rick Smith, and
