Lynx recruits e-business manager Wednesday 28 February 2001 PDF Print Robert Moores has been recruited as the e-business manager at e-solutions provider Lynx Technology, where he will be responsible for helping clients develop their IT strategy and implement e-business solutions. Lynx already successfully provides a comprehensive range of infrastructure, hosting and enhanced managed services to its clients. With the development of its strategic e-business consulting team, Lynx is now proactively helping its customers link business strategy and IT to deliver bottom-line business results. Moores, states, "We believe that the most rewarding opportunities during the coming 12 months will be in supply chain integration and information sharing through intranets and extranets. "There is a very strong business case in these areas based on lowering the cost of business operations combined with a low level of risk, and a quick return on investment. Put quite simply, linking IT systems eliminates data entry duplication and error, and speeds up the whole business process - it is not difficult to attach a value to this". Lynx has already implemented several XML-based solutions in this area, and doubtless XML, along with workflow, extended transaction management and message queuing technologies will be central to integrating business processes and systems both within and across organisational boundaries. By providing linkages at system and process levels these technologies extend the life of existing systems and information stores, and enable business managers to select new best-of-breed applications as appropriate. In business terms, this represents a low-risk, incremental approach to the development of e-business. Robert began his working life in sales before moving into IT. From early years as a computer programmer he moved on to project management and has worked in Australia and the USA. Prior to joining Lynx, Robert spent seven years as Director and co-owner of CATS Consulting which he helped grow from the proverbial attic start-up to a strong regional player.
