No shortage of amazing blog posts to link to this month, was tough to narrow it down. Here's a list of my favorite ecommerce related posts in January. Enjoy.

  • Justin Palmer kicks off our list with 5 Anti-Resolutions for Marketing Success in 2010. All the things you shouldn't rely on this year.

  • Ever wonder if those "Tweet this" links in emails get used? According to Silverpop research, sadly, the answer is no.
  • There's no one who sees more retail email than Chad White, who's rounded up his favorites for the Email Design Hall of Fame, 2009.

As more outsourced point packages are implemented within an environment, the more the emphasis is placed on integration management. Integration is tough enough when all the systems are in-house. When you add disparate technologies (because the service providers don’t standardize on a single technology set just for you), separate companies (that now have to be coordinated with when there is any change) and feature overlap (each one of these products offers some functionality that another system already provides), it can really become a problem.

The IT team is now forced to spend more time and money on making sure that its systems all play nice with each other. Integration starts overtaking all of the other aspects of IT, and less time is spent on developing new offerings.
