SEAM Process - Applied to Salesforce.com / CRM Projects

SEAM, defined as "Systemic Enterprise Architecture Methodology" is to be applied to salesforce.com and DRO projects by Nexell.SEAM, developed by the Swiss EPFL based in Lausanne, together with Prof. Alain Wegmann, is a process analysis framework allowing companies to map their business processes and needs to their IT infrastructures. This approach relates directly to the business need for CRM and how it should be applied to salesforce.com and cloud-based projects.In simple terms, SEAM can be compared to sewing, where different materials, possibly with different patterns, need to be matched and aligned, to achieve a common goal & result. Nexell's approach to SEAM, together with the EPFL, allows for alignment of salesforce.com different "Cloud" solutions. Sales Cloud, Marketing Cloud and Service Cloud do not simply exist in a business environment without some "sewing" needed to align the SEAMs. This approach guarantees customers a coherent business solution, in an optimized planning and project...

Lessons learned early - Privacy & Security

It seems the lessons of internet security and privacy cannot be learned early enough in life and it is never too early for parents to start teaching their kids about it either, it seems.Getting the kids their first mobile, tablet etc for Christmas ? Well it's time to discuss the risks of internet, their identity and their privacy.Case in point (true story). Two kids (7 & 9) have been using computers for a few years now and are completely hooked on the site www.moviestarplanet.com. It is a great cloud-based application, where kids build their own characters, put on a show & make their own movies and earn points based on popularity, number of views etc. You get the idea. With these points, they can buy more accessories, clothes etc to make their characters even better.Of course these two trusting kids tell their friends how great this is, show them how it is...

Kindle Fire 1st experience

So I received the new Kindle Fire (color version of Kindle) yesterday, personal delivery from a friend, as Amazon doesn't deliver outside the USA yet.The intention is to have the device setup for all Nexell users, with a single account, which can be shared so that all technical manuals we need can be purchased and used on the device as well as any other device (iPhone, Android etc), with the Kindle App installed.First impression of the device is great, look & feel, setup etc, but if you expect an iPad or iPad killer you'll be disappointed. WLAN built in, but no GSM, and as it is a US only device, don't try to download any free Apps as you will get the message "blablabla geographical restrictions blablabla", DRM kicks in. Angry birds anyone ? Forget it, cannot install it, even though it says it is "compatible" with my device. Of course, if...

Running Android Apps on the Kindle Fire

We are technology buffs and LOVE to play with new toys. But are they really toys ?

About to receive our Nexell #Kindle Fire, personal import from the USA as they don't ship abroad (yet), and as most of our team is Android device based, found this great article on a few simple steps to actually run almost all Android apps on the Kindle and not only the ones available from Amazon.
