  • Manufacturing the Cloud: Objects in the Rearview Mirror

    “Objects in the rearview mirror may appear closer than they are.” – Jim SteinmanI grew up listening to the music of my older brother and sister, which in the Davidson household in ’70s Glasgow, Scotland, meant a steady diet of what we now call classic rock but in particular AC/DC, Deep Purple, Blue Oyster Cult, Meat Loaf and UFO (who by the way recorded the best live album ever, “Strangers in the Night,” but that’s another story), to name a few.Then the 1980s came around and as everything got gl...

  • Manufacturing the Cloud: Location, Location, Location

    With changes in the global economy making it increasingly difficult to plan anything long term with any certainty, the ability to be agile and to change plans quickly and cost-effectively becomes all the more important. NetSuite is inherently agile and not just because of our configurability (as covered in my last blog) but because your company information is centrally managed with reduced infrastructure.Ownership of data is a question often raised by prospects during a sales cycle.

  • Manufacturing the Cloud: Platform 9 ¾

    One of my favorite pieces of creative writing has been the outrageously popular Harry Potter series. In particular, I’ve always appreciated how the author managed to weave little pieces of realism into the story by referencing common elements of modern society to offset the wild and wonderful world of wizardry. Take for example the concept of taking a train to Hogwarts, and only being able to access that train from a special platform — platform 9 ¾.At NetSuite, we have our own special platform —...

  • Manufacturing the Cloud: The Air Conditioned Server Room

    So it looks like cloud computing is here to stay after all. Like most innovations, there are a few early adopters while the majority sit back and look on with interest to see where it’s all going to go.

  • Join SuiteCommerce at SuiteWorld!

    We were so excited last year at the NetSuite Partner Conference in San Francisco when NetSuite announced that in 2011 the conference was not only going to be about partners but also about customers! It was long overdue to get the entire NetSuite ecosystem together for a week, to really showcase, meet, and put a face to all the relationships we have built in the past years.  At SuiteCommerce most of our jobs are done remotely, so we get few chances to meet face to face with our customers. Th...

  • NetSuite SuiteWorld Insight From Epiphany CEO

    It’s my first time blogging and it feels like public speaking but in silence. All–in–all a bit unnerving, but rather exciting. Another exciting first is the opportunity to attend SuiteWorld, NetSuite’s global user and partner conference.
