Collaboration Software: Index of Collaboration Software Technologies
Collaboration Software, also known as group collaboration software or groupware, is software which allows cooperation on a business document between multiple parties on multiple computers. Collaboration software also allows the integration and merging of document changes and versions on a business document.
There are two types of collaboration software: IT centered and low IT involvement. IT-centered collaboration software, like many document and content management platforms, requires new IT infrastructure, training, maintenance and support. Low IT involved collaboration software communicates collaborative information to all parties involved using the existing IT infrastructure and with little or no training and maintenance, making open collaborative software more diverse and less expensive. This type of collaboration software also manages the ad hoc processes of business collaboration, assisting businesses even when the workload and deadlines create a hectic and disorganized schedule.
This article presents an index of collaboration software technologies to assist businesses in finding collaboration software that works for them. Any given internet search on "groupware" or "collaboration software" will yield millions of results. Knowing what technologies to look for will help whittle down the results to a groupware that works the way businesses work.

Microsoft RMS ? Great Plains Integration ? Overview For IT Specialist
Microsoft Great Plains and Microsoft Retail Management System (Microsoft RMS) are getting new market share due to the Microsoft strong marketing campaign. Both products: Microsoft Great Plains and Microsoft RMS are coming from the same Microsoft subdivision - Microsoft Business Solutions (MBS), however due to the fact that both products were bought by Microsoft from different vendors, the integration between the two is not an easy thing. At this time MBS has RMS integration on the General Ledger and Purchase Order level into Great Plains out of the box. This integration has some advancements in comparison to old product: QuickSell, but it is still GL and PO only. We do understand the need for midsize and large retail companies, structured as clubs and selling on account to their members to have more adequate integration when you can synchronize your Sales information and have robust Great Plains reporting. There is the product on the market, which is integration on the Receivables Management level from RMS to Great Plains, written by Daniel Sionov and Andrew Karasev and maintained by the alliance between LightEdge Solutions (www.lightedge.com) and Alba Spectrum Technologies (www.albaspectrum.com). In Alba Spectrum Technologies we actually do coding and product tuning for specific client needs.
Upgrading Great Plains Dexterity Customization ? switching to new technologies: SQL, Crystal, eConne
1. Replace Dexterity cursor with SQL Stored Procedure Dexterity was designed as multiplatform technology (primarily Btrieve, Ctree, SQL Server, potentially Oracle). Dexterity data retrieving mechanism is based on Range start, Range End, Get First and Get Next clauses. It is in fact similar, however a little bit slower to cursors in Transact SQL. Long ranges in Dexterity are good candidates for replacement by SQL stored procedures with update clause. For example, consider to replace following Dexterity code: Range clear SOP_HDR_WORK. Clear 'SOP Type' of table SOP_HDR_WORK. Clear 'SOP Number' of table SOP_HDR_WORK. Range start table SOP_HDR_WORK. Get first table SOP_HDR_WORK. While errEOF do If 'Salesperson ID' of table SOP_HDR_WORK = "ERIC" then Edit table SOP_HDR_WORK. Set 'Salesperson ID' of table SOP_HDR_WORK to "BILL". Save table SOP_HDR_WORK. End if. Get next table SOP_HDR_WORK. End while. With the following SQL code Update SOP10100 set SLPRSNID="BILL" where SLPRSNID="ERIC" Bringing new data into a table in Dexterity is based on change/edit table clauses, in SQL they are equivalent (by performance) to inserting one record at the time. When having long cycle of change/edit table in Dexterity, consider replacement by SQL stored procedure with Insert Into clause. 2. Use Crystal Reports, call them from via VBA in Modified form The easy way to call Crystal Report from your VBA code from your modified form: Const RPT = "D:ClientsTheClientInvoice Status.rpt" Public crwApplication As CRPEAuto.Application Public crwReport As CRPEAuto.Report Private Sub Print_BeforeUserChanged(KeepFocus As Boolean, CancelLogic As Boolean) If SalesTransactionInquiryZoo.Type = "Invoice" Then If crwApplication Is Nothing Then Set crwApplication = CreateObject("Crystal.CRPE.Application") End If Set crwReport = crwApplication.OpenReport(RPT) crwReport.ParameterFields(1).SetCurrentValue (DocumentNo) crwReport.Preview End If 3. Use Direct .Net Web Publishing from Great Plains Database The easiest and safest way is to use eConnect - SDK with VB samples, created for eCommerce programmers and web designers to call the functionality in Microsoft Great Plains. If your company can not afford eConnect - create your own set of stored procedures to address Great Plains database and go ahead with Visual Studio.Net to do the web publishing.
