This paper begins by exploring why SOX compliance continues to be so difficult when it is treated as an annual project rather than a continuous process. Then the paper discusses how Likewise Enterprise can help your company make the shift to continuous compliance for identity and access management in a mixed network. Likewise joins Linux, Unix, and Mac OS X computers to Active Directory, providing the basis to assign each user a unique ID for authentication, authorization, and monitoring. Likewise also includes group policies for non-Windows computers so that you can centrally manage their security settings in the same way as Windows computers.

It's a common scenario in the mining and oil & gas industries: the project has been approved to proceed and the pressure is on to get multiple parties – partners, consultants, contractors and suppliers – working together efficiently to meet an aggressive schedule. This challenge is often exacerbated by globalization and by the vast volume of data that flows between the project team.

Most project resources perform work and include such entities as personnel, equipment and contractors. However, the concept of a resource (and the techniques of resource management presented in this paper) can also be applied to entities that do not perform work, but which must be available in order for work to be performed.

One of the difficulties of managing projects that involve several (perhaps many) organizations is that the group has no pre-established procedures for handling actions that cross organizational boundaries. With no procedures in place, confusion and miscommunication will result, which will lead to unnecessary delays, wasted resources, and potentially even conflict among the organizations.

For some projects, tracking actuals is unnecessary or is not worth the effort required. In other cases, however, tracking actual costs and resource usage is an essential aspect of the project control function. Why then is tracking actual costs and resource usage on a project ever worth the effort required to accomplish it?

Projects to implement ERP tend to be difficult, expensive and drawn-out. They are often full of painful surprises and overrun budgets and schedules that were extravagant in the first place. They fail entirely in an alarming number of cases.  Why this should be so is not immediately apparent. If we list, at a fairly high level, the tasks required to implement an ERP system in a company that’s already familiar with ERP practices, what we see is a significant but not daunting amount of work.

ERP system acquisition projects are rarely deemed to fail.  All the well-advertised failures come later, during implementation and afterward.  Nevertheless, the seeds of these failures are invariably planted in the earliest stages of ERP acquisition planning.

ERP implementations fail – when they do – because implementation projects allow a few well-known risks to go unmanaged. These risks go unmanaged because the control of results slips from buyer to seller.  It doesn’t have to work that way.

It is a truism that in any complex activity, the critical, defining decisions should be made as early in the process as possible.  In ERP implementation projects this principle is routinely undermined by the nearly universal practice of separating acquisition and implementation activities into separate projects, performed by separate teams operating under separate control.

Here’s a test: Can you list all the issues your software team is working on now? Can you sort them by severity, priority, features affected, and other criteria such as whether the issue is a bug, customer request, or product enhancement? Can you show the histories of all related comments and actions? Can you distribute this information easily to concerned individuals — showing only the information relevant to them?

Being the new person on a bug tracking team can be very intimidating. The other team members are likely very set in the process and know exactly what they are doing. They are used to working as a team and they understand what is expected of them. Being new, though, does not mean that a person can not fit in on the bug tracking team. All a person needs to do is learn a few beginner tips to using bug tracking software.

Patton Harris and Rust and Associates has 13 branches.  Management and IT needed a way to help these offices work on projects together to optimize company resources.  Using GlobalSCAPE WAFS gave PHR+A fast file access across branches using minimal system resources. No management is required as it operates in the background and real time byte level differencing not only reduces bandwidth usage and spikes but also the changes are sent as they happen – not when they are needed.

Time is money, resources are scarce and only projects that add value and meet the organization's strategic aim and objectives should be flying. Why is it, therefore, that so many projects are running that have not been formally approved, burn limited and finite resource and, most importantly, do not improve or deliver new services or increase market share?

Unlike email, instant messages (IMs) do not allow group communication; nor do they persist -- you can't hold on to them for as long as you wish. Persistent group chat, however, allows businesses to organize persistent dialogue around business-critical topics, and keep them for easy retrieval later.
