Can you give more information?
Where did you see this term?
The definition depends on what kind of business you are talking about.

It can mean a driver-based inventory system in the computer programming field or it may mean a way to customize solutions by measuring and meeting milestones in retail business.

Thank You for your attention. Expression is in an audiovisual business context. The sentence which it appears in is:

"For contents producers, cross-media means added value because integrated production saves production costs and makes your business model scalable."

Thank You:-D

Hi Bushwhacker,

to scale = to climb up or over; ascend: scaled the peak

scalable = expandable

A "highly scalable" device or application implies that it can handle a large increase in users, workload or transactions without undue strain.

[FONT=&quot]S[/FONT][FONT=&quot]calability[/FONT][FONT=&quot] is a positive feature of a product that is sold to fast-growing companies, because it implies that growth can be accommodated without having to make major changes or learn new procedures.

Regards.

I think this means that you would be able to measure the process/progress of any program you implemented in your business.

Hi Bushwhacker,

Please read again more attentive my previous post at the present theme above. There is some more information concerning your question.

scalable = if piece of computer hardware or software (or a firm) is scalable, it continues to work well even if it is made bigger or connected to a larger number of other pieces of equipment.

scalability [FONT=&quot]
Property of a system that can accommodate changes in transaction volume without major changes to the system. Scalability most often comes into play when a system user anticipates growth in his business. You would not want to make a significant investment in any system, such as a fulfillm[/FONT][FONT=&quot]ent[/FONT][FONT=&quot] system, if it cannot grow as your business grows. On the other hand, you do not want to pay for excess capacity while you wait for growth to happen. A scalable system can be downsized as easily as it can grow. A server for a Web site has scalability if it can accommodate extreme peaks and valleys in user traffic

Regards.

V.
