Article Series on Design Studio, Part 9: Putting It All Together

Our focus, in this article series, is to show you how you can use Design Studio to make business processes simpler and easier-to-perform. In a previous article (see http://www.danalytics.com/guru/letter/archive/2007-11.htm) we focused on using Design Studio’s Page Designer to render a simple list of vendors and display their open invoices. Taking this concept even further--by combining Portal Page Designer, a Portal Page Data Query (DME) object and a form object (a “formlet”) customized using Form Designer--this article demonstrates the delivery of a comprehensive solution to a real business problem. I’m extremely grateful to The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP) for letting me share this story with you.  Read More..

  • Arun MRuma Malhotra Hi Ruma - My name is Arun and I work for a healthcare firm. I just thought will check with you for something. I am currently working on a migration project where in we are moving away from Lawson and bringing in MS4. I am trying to put together a file for deduction data from lawson so that, it can be used as an input to MS4. And I have been having a tough time finding out which fields are from which tables in lawson. I have an excel spreadsheet with the list of fields. I could use some help and wanted to see if you could help me out with this. Thanks a lot!!

        • StephanieHi Arun, have you used the ctrl shift O function? This would tell you the field names in Lawson, you can then input this into MSAddin's Query if you were unsure of what tables the fields came from. I'd be happy to help when general feedback but there may be a lag time with my response.

          Hope this helps!

          Another Update on Alleged Patent Infringement

          Back in 2011, Lawson responded to an Alleged Patent Infringement by replacing Requisition Self-Service (RSS) with Requisition Center (RQC). In the meantime, Lawson has been acquired by Infor, but the patent case still lingers. Here’s an update. Some of you might have received this notice from Infor, and are unsure how this might impact your […]

          Inforum 2013

          I just returned from Orlando, having attended Inforum 2013. Last year’s Inforum, which quickly followed the acquisition of Lawson by Infor, was really just a combination of Lawson’s annual conference (CUE) with Infor’s name and logo slapped on for good measure. This year was quite a different story. Starting with the fact that I was actually […]
