Agresso + CODA, VITA + Link (+ CODA 2go): What's the Sum? (Part 1)


Over the last few years I have produced a number of articles and blog entries on two once-independent and occasionally competing products: Agresso Business World (ABW) and CODA Financials.

The downward trend we see in SAP or Oracle licensing revenues might suggest that organizations are unwilling to invest in a solution that hooks them into a never-ending cycle of “need-spend-need-spend.” With a recession already here (and who knows for how long), unnecessary IT spending is no longer an option. This is especially true for Businesses Living IN Change (BLINC) such as organizations in the people-centric Read More
