December 2012 Boston Analyst Roadshow Snapshot


I am glad I was among the analysts invited to the traditional December analyst roadshow, which takes place in the beautiful city of Boston, by the event organizer, Judith Rothrock, the energetic and vibrant president of JRocket Marketing. In this event, several software vendors announce their latest software offerings and convene with analysts for friendly and informal discussions. The 2012 event

For example, the expense reporting page will be called “My travel expenses,” with the subsections Read More

Best Software To Hold Competition At Bay Part Four: Challenges & User Recommendations


The downside, as a rule, is the painstaking integration effort yet to be devised for a number of remaining products in the Sage’s/Best’s family and to be subsequently exerted, as there is always a large time bracket from concept to actual materialization. Further, integration is never a simple feat.

Navision Enhances Its e-Vision And Looks To Expand Vertically - Part 3: Challenges & User Recommendations


As the current market trend is towards vendors that can provide well-rounded but vertically focused solutions for medium-sized companies, Navision seems to have positioned itself to take a lead other vendors may find hard to emulate.

In North America, vendors such as Microsoft Great Plains Software and Epicor Software are entrenched competitors, which make it relatively difficult for non-US applications vendors to find suitable distributors in the largest IT market in the world. The fact that Navision currently has only around 180 resellers in North America speaks volumes in that regard. Similar moves are to be Read More

Two Force.com Apps Joining Forces at Dreamforce 2010


One of the major takeaway messages from salesforce.com’s recent Dreamforce 2010 conference was the company’s diversification within the platform-as-a-service (PaaS) space. Namely, during their keynote presentations, the company’s executives admitted publicly to the Force.com platform’s proprietary nature (i.e., the non-mainstream Apex language), which made them decide

Enterprise Systems and Post-implementation Agility-No Longer an Oxymoron?


The need to support flexibility prior to installation of enterprise systems has largely been mastered by many vendors. But what is really more important is ongoing agility after the installation. Agresso seems to have raised the bar in this regard.

agresso excelerator  Agility-No Longer an Oxymoron? Agresso Asserts Itself In mid-2006, Agresso , one of the top five providers worldwide of people-centric enterprise resource planning (ERP) solutions, made a more aggressive entry into the North American software market, where it currently has about a hundred customers. This was largely because the vendor saw an untapped opportunity in the vulnerability of most current peer ERP solutions, which cannot really address rapid change within a company.

Vendor Spotlight: Agresso


Welcome to TEC's Vendor Spotlight series. This installment focuses on Agresso, a Netherlands-based ERP vendor now enjoying its fair share of success in North America. So how successful is Agresso? Just ask SAP—Agresso claims to have won over $50 million (USD) against SAP in 61 separate deals…

One Year Later at Deltek: More of the Same (And Then Some More) - Part I


Time and again during my decade or so of covering the enterprise applications market as an industry analyst I have witnessed what difference a year can make. And boy, would 2008 be such a year! A year ago or so, I concluded an in-depth four-part series on Deltek (NASDAQ: PROJ), whose executives were recently happy to tell me that 2008 was not that terrible a year for the company. Quite the

And, since Deltek is an established US-based company with a large presence across the US (in terms of sales offices and reseller partners, especially within the “DC beltway” ), I’d expect it to fare even better than, say, Agresso in its core vertical markets as the new “New Deal” takes shape. Furthermore, Read More
