We speak of the cost-benefit analysis to do before buying a system as if it really exists. It’s not as real as we pretend it is.
This roughly marks the start of GeoMetrick Enterprises. I started working on the company March 1st, 1996 and gotten all the insurance, registrations and such not long afterward. It’s strange to me to think that, this time last year, I had begun a W-2 job thinking I was starting a new phase in my life but, at this point, already knowing the job probably wasn’t going to last and that I would likely return, here. Here are some thoughts and observations based on these years in business.
In my last post, “Notes on Software Testing Habits,” I ran through a few thoughts about how to look at your software testing habits. Regulated or not, there are many commonalities.
In LinkedIn, I recently forwarded a post by Martin Lush entitled “Don’t Blame the Person – Fix the System!” One outcome for me from that is that it started a variety of side conversations with other people in the industry. One area of conversation that came up is that of testing, as a general topic and, today, I want to share my own thoughts on testing.
Some time ago, I made a post here about the levels of configuration and the misconceptions around them. What led-up to this post were conversations with customers and the continued realization that customers are still not being educated on what the term “configuration” means in our industry.
In a past post, I mentioned systems that let themselves become non-compliant. The issues I spoke about are actually issues for non-regulated systems, as well. All systems need some amount of maintenance and proper usage. However, there are other symptoms I hear among those groups who aren’t properly maintaining or using their systems. Here are some warning signs.
I keep hearing complaints of projects who go sprint-after-sprint with their Agile project and can’t make progress. Regardless, the methodology, I’ve got three observations to pass along to readers. For the past few years, Agile seems to be the hot topic but it’s still no guarantee for project success. Read on for more thoughts.
In my last post, I talked about how I’m seeing a resurgence of leads for business in Comments Regarding 2018. As I think more about it and speak to more people, I’m not sure I’m getting a clear picture of the year ahead. Next, I’ll tell you why.
Just as many businesses like to do, I try to watch the trends to get an idea how to plan out my year. 2018 is no different.
I know it sounds odd that a LIMS/ELN/SDMS/LES blog would give a workaround to software that is not of that type of software. However, so many of use use LinkedIn to keep in-touch or drive business that I frequently seem to be coming across people having the same problem I’m having with responding to messages. With that said, I found a workaround and willing to share what I have.
