Progress Software Revs Up to Higher RPM via Savvion - Part 1
Late 2009 and early 2010 were characterized by a number of mergers and acquisitions (M@As) in the vibrant and buoyant business process management (BPM

apama acquisitions  (CEP)  platform ( Progress Apama ), and so on and so forth. Lombardi Software was pegged there as a strategic partner solution for missing BPM capabilities, but I am aware of only a few common clients that have come from Progress and Lombardi’s joint effort since (although some companies might have coincidentally deployed both products). Conversely, Progress’ infrastructure peers and competitors, Oracle, Microsoft, IBM, Tibco , and Software AG , have had certain BPM capabilities for quite some

Progress Exchange 2013 Part One: What's the Current State of Progress?


By P.J. Jakovljevic (see bio) and Bob Eastman (see bio) As it has been excruciatingly painful for die-hard Boston Red Sox fans to watch their moribund baseball team’s previous two seasons, it has been puzzling and perhaps also painful for enterprise software market observers to watch the coinciding self-implosion of sorts of the New England software vendor Progress Software Corporation. For

Now, the Red Sox might have already redeemed themselves with the (unexpectedly) stellar regular 2013 MLB season (and also with a great start to the MLB 2013 post-season), but only time will tell whether Progress can do a similar feat in its arena. After the aforementioned severe pruning, many have asked what might have remained at Progress other than its original OpenEdge application development platform. Read More

Progress Software Revs Up to Higher RPM via Savvion - Part 4


Part 1 of this series began the analysis of the recent merger of Progress Software Corporation (NASDAQ: PRGS) and Savvion Inc. Progress has this way made a large leap into the business process management (BPM) space, from where it had been notably absent.

Part I of this blog series introduced the concept of complex event processing (CEP) and possible needs for CEP software applications.

It is worth analyzing what has happened with the Apama product since being acquired by Progress Software. Progress Apama’s Current State of Affairs For one, Apama revenues have increased multiple times (e.g., 70 percent growth in fiscal 2008). This growth probably makes Progress the market share leader in the CEP market , together with the fact that Progress Read More

Lawson Software-IPO and Several Acquisitions After


Lawson Software, almost two years since a successful IPO amid adverse conditions at the time, has had its share of difficulties while rounding up its vertical offerings via a slew of focused appetizing acquisitions. While the last two quarters have seen license revenue revive and profits, certain ongoing challenges will have to be overcome so that Lawson can see again its best days of a few years ago.

Lawson Software-IPO and Several Acquisitions After Part Five: Challenges and User Recommendations


Lawson has yet to show that its strategy and technology can "travel abroad," especially to Europe where it needs to put down some deep roots if it is to fulfill its global ambitions. A measly portion of its total revenues comes from sales outside of the US-a proportion that has been static for the past several years. On the other hand, it may point out how successful the company has become in the US in the past decade. What is puzzling is why that success has remained local.

apama acquisitions  Software-IPO and Several Acquisitions After Part Five: Challenges and User Recommendations Challenges While we believe that the strategy of Lawson Software, Inc. (NASDAQ: LWSN) has been sound, many may wonder why the vendor has experienced recent troubles. The reasons are multiple. First, it appears that sectors such as health care, the public sector, and professional services have not been less recession-sensitive amid the overall market malaise. Second, one should never discount fierce competition Read More

Is SSA GT Betting Infini(um)tely On Acquisitions? Part Three: Complementary Products


At a first glance, one can even notice that the complementary nature of some SSA GT products and Infinium products may indeed provide a ‘kick for a buck’ proposition. Further, it appears that SSA GT understands and listens closely (via Global Guide Groups) to the needs of conservative ERP customers that are unwilling to ditch a good functional product even at a cost of its technological antiquity. Further, it has a track record of strong functional development that preserves the customer’s current investment.

Lawson Software-IPO and Several Acquisitions After Part Three: Market Impact


In several aspects, Lawson Software could be regarded as an enterprise applications market anomaly. For one, at its peak in fiscal 2002, the company boasted annual revenues of nearly $430 million, but it still has only a slender (less than 10 percent of revenues) presence outside of its US domestic market. Further, it remains a major force in enterprise applications software, yet it does not cater the functionality to manufacturing sectors, and the vastness of its sales are thus derived from just a few service-oriented vertical markets-primarily health care and retail.

apama acquisitions  Software-IPO and Several Acquisitions After Part Three: Market Impact Market Impact Although Lawson Software, Inc. (NASDAQ: LWSN) has a long trail of success, throughout 2002 it encountered many simultaneous challenges. Still, after initially chalking up and experiencing hiccups, the vendor seems to be weathering the storm and getting back on track. While it is quite difficult to compete against the likes of SAP , PeopleSoft , and Oracle , it is certainly not impossible, as witnessed in the past Read More

Lawson Software-IPO and Several Acquisitions After Part Four: Strengths Continued


Lawson, contrary to many other players, seems to be compensating its narrow foothold with a strong vertical dimension. Lawson will continue to concentrate its internal sales efforts on its traditional vertical markets and to additionally rely on partners to address and develop for particular industry needs. Look for Lawson's opportunistic expansion into another service industry market and for its abstaining from manufacturing in the foreseeable future.

Best Practices: Six Questions to Ask Before Moving Core HR into the Cloud


Mergers and acquisitions, decentralization, and globalization are putting enormous pressure on HR to standardize systems and processes. The lack of a single global system of record for core HR data prevents companies from operating effectively and efficiently. As companies race to expand into new markets quickly, HR leaders must understand the opportunities and challenges that exist with core HR today. The cloud allows for global reach and scale, but you must ask the right questions to determine the cloud solution that is right for you.
