Enterprise Management Software - Doing Some Good

Do some good! This is what I ask of Enterprise Management Software (EMS) and its vendors. Is it possible? What good comes from an EMS? Is it good for business? Is it good for the vendor? Is it good for both? Read and decide.

What does it mean to do some good?
What does it mean to do some good? When thinking of the automobile and the check engine light or gas gauge, it means that one does not need to get out of the car to know that there is an alarm. When thinking of enterprise management software, one expects similar alarms. I recently read that Congress required National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) to develop a rule requiring all new motor vehicles to include a tire pressure monitoring system (TPMS) [read more at http://www-nrd.nhtsa.dot.gov/vrtc/ca/tpms.htm ]. This site also includes information on the development of an automotive icon for the system. It would appear that Congress is helping the automotive industry do some good. Would you agree? Has enterprise management software received any help from Congress? Does Sarbanes Oxley list software requirements for compliance? Should software vendors determine – without congressional help – what is good for Sarbanes Oxley compliance? Is this good for you?
