Project Planning, and response to Multi-Tasking is Killing Your Business

Thu, 12/06/2007 - 04:48 -- John Locke

I met Bruce Henry at an MIT Enterprise Forum event last night. Turns out we're both working on software for project management. Theirs is Liquid Planner, ours is Project Auriga.

I'm a bit skeptical about their statistical approach to project scheduling... I definitely agree with giving estimates in ranges, but how is your approach that different? Aren't you depending on arbitrary guesses by the project manager users, to come up with those ranges and confidence values?

The CMS Matrix

Fri, 03/18/2005 - 09:47 -- John Locke

Just found a site that provides a feature comparison for several dozen content management systems of various types, both proprietary and open source. Search for the features you need, and this will show what's available. Not found on this list are some wiki engines, ERP systems, CRM systems, or document management--but these are some of the features you can select from the list to narrow down on a content management system. The CMS Matrix - Content Management Comparison Tool.

Job Time Tracking web site for SQL Ledger

Thu, 10/21/2004 - 02:18 -- John Locke

An open source time tracking program called Jobby has just been released. What's cool about this is that it hooks into the SQL Ledger financial database. It also connects to dotProject.

Right now, it reads customers, vendors, and services directly from SQL Ledger. In its next phase, it will transfer hours directly into SQL Ledger invoices!

  1. If you are a user of business software and are interested in finding out more about open source options for your business or office, you may be a little bit frustrated about the lack of introductory-level information on this topic... The best single source of such information that I have found so far is John Locke's "Open Source Solutions for Small Business Problems." It provides an excellent introduction to the concepts, advantages, and disadvantages behind open-source.
