Organizations, applications, and individuals can communicate far more effectively if they agree on the structure and meaning of information. XML was specifically designed to facilitate...

This new lightweight methodology challenges many conventional tenets, including the long-held assumption that the cost of changing a piece of software necessarily rises dramatically over the course of time. XP recognizes that projects have to work to achieve...

Kearney pan-European study suggests that half the acqusitions fail to achieve their objectives, while three-quarters actually destroy shareholder value. The objective for most mega-mergers is to increase market share and capitalise...
