Will User Enterprises Ever Get onto an Easy (Support and Maintenance) Street?


Vendors' traditional pricing strategies aren't going to work much longer. Sooner or later, prices will be determined by what the market is ready to bear rather than be based on what vendors think is a profitable way to deliver solutions.

preventative maintenance plans  User Enterprises Ever Get onto an Easy (Support and Maintenance) Street? A series of articles published at the end of 2005 highlighted at great length a conundrum on price per value that has long affected enterprise application vendors and their users. Specifically, while vendors would like to have well-oiled business models that promote stable and recurring revenue streams (which in turn would ensure future product and service enhancements), users favor freedom of choice (in terms of which vendors Read More

How Airlines Can Stop Getting Murdered by Maintenance Costs


Patchwork maintenance repair and overhaul (MRO) systems can cost large airlines millions in duplicated effort, extra inventory, and delays. But with round-the-clock schedules to maintain, few airlines can afford to upgrade to an integrated MRO solution any time soon. Today TEC Analyst Philippe Reney looks at two ways airlines can improve their MRO capabilities without a complete IT overhaul.

The Guthrie Theater in Minneapolis, Minn., USA opened a new facility in 2006 and more than tripled in size, prompting the maintenance team to revamp operations and replace overstuffed paper repair binders with a computerized maintenance management system (CMMS) to generate work orders and schedule preventive maintenance for nearly 350 pieces of equipment. The CMMS also captures repair data and issues historical reports. Organized maintenance and a foolproof 25-year projection on capital replacements earned the team a million-dollar matching grant award from the Kresge Foundation to establish a building reserves fund in 2010.
