Written By: Predrag Jakovljevic Published On: December 11 2009 Part 1 of this blog series outlined Oracle’s recent (and seemingly genuine) change of heart and approach towards partnering and catering enterprise applications to small and medium enterprises (SMEs). The analysis then moved onto the Oracle Accelerate program, which was launched about three years ago to allow partners to sell a greater number of smaller projects with fixed time Read More...
Have ERP Solutions Become Greener during 2009?
Written By: Yu Chen Published On: December 10 2009 If you haven’t read the blog post ERP Vendors, Are You Green Enough? that I wrote a little over a year ago, I recommend you read it first. After you’ve checked it out, I assume you’ll understand that I used a flawed and extremely simplified approach to “confirm” my impression of the correlation between the size of enterprise resource planning (ERP) vendors and the greenness of their offerings (see Read More...

In the News: Gartner Lawsuit
Written By: Gabriel Gheorghiu Published On: December 9 2009 Gartner seems to be in the news a lot lately. First, they announced they will acquire AMR and now we find out that a vendor is suing them for not being included in the Magic Quadrant. I wasn’t surprised to find out that the name of the website where the news was published is techdirt. Another interesting post on the same website caught my attention: five years ago, a woman sued a telecom Read More...
Vox Populi: Does Your Company Have a Strategy for 2010?
Written By: Gabriel Gheorghiu Published On: December 8 2009 2009 has been a hard one for all of us. All companies, big or small, in all industries, have been more or less affected by the economic downturn. And even though some people think that the recovery has already started and next year will be better, we all know that it cannot be much better. Not to mention that we might have to get through the second wave of the crisis. In both cases, a full Read More...

How Do People in Different Regions of the World Select Software?
Written By: Yu Chen Published On: December 8 2009 The joke “If … Made Toasters” (here is one of many variations) has been circulating and evolving on the Web for quite a long time. The first time I read it was at least 10 years ago, but once in a while I still receive it in my inbox. Since we’re always looking for something different, I’m taking the initiative and starting a new topic in a similar pattern—how do people in different regions select Read More...
Accelerating (and Fast-Starting) the SME Business at Oracle (and SAP) - Part 1
Written By: Predrag Jakovljevic Published On: December 7 2009 The blogosphere and other media outlets might still be raving about major announcements at Oracle OpenWorld 2009, such as the one about Oracle’s professed strategy of “gently” and thoughtfully assimilating Sun Microsystems. The impending merger (subject to somewhat more difficulty than previously expected, due to regulatory hurdles in Europe) should make Oracle not only the Read More...

Written By: Gabriel Gheorghiu Published On: December 3 2009 Now that Gartner is acquiring AMR, we cannot help but wonder what will be the next acquisition or merger in the business software research field.

Gartner acquires Aberdeen and launches The Magic Axis (Magic Read More...

Written By: Jorge Garcia Published On: December 2 2009 Making a decision related to your own business or the company you work for is not simple: modern business models have too much information to be analyzed by one person without the right tools.
