Integrated Solutions: Look Before You Leap
When it comes to integrated enterprise systems, functionality is not exactly unimportant, but it needs to be combined within a fairly simple-to-use application set that actually gets used rather than languishes on the shelf.

AVANTIS: Baan , Marcam , Avantis , and Wonderware , under its roof, which were never delivered together (see The Name and Ownership Change Roulette Wheel for Marcam Stops at SSA Global—Part Three: Last-Ditch Effort by Invensys ). Presently, IQMS ( http://www.iqms.com ), a privately-held, Paso Robles, California-based (US) company, may be unique in the ERP arena, and not only within its mid-market realm. It is the developer of EnterpriseIQ , a well-attuned, extended-ERP system for small and mid-size plastic

Baan Seeking A New Foster Home -- A Déjà vu Or Not Quite?
Given Invensys' irrevocable decision to give up Baan for another adoption after all, one is to wonder whether this is the 'year 2000 revisited' or whether Baan and its customers should instead look forward to turning a new leaf.

AVANTIS: asset management (EAM) product Avantis . Even after Invensys cut its humongous debt in half by the sale of non-core businesses, weakening trading conditions are causing it to further divest its holdings either partially or wholly in all other businesses beyond its Production Management and Rail Systems divisions. It is seeking either suitable equity partners or new owners, as appropriate to the development needs of each business. A structured and phased process to achieve this is already underway. The

Marcam Solutions: Shifting its Focus to MES
The envisioned integration with Wonderware's FactorySuite 2000 will allow Protean users to solve shop floor problems with all production data collected and made instantly available. We believe that within the next 4 years Marcam will gradually shift its focus to plant integration and operations applications, while de-emphasizing its financial and order management components and relying on interfaces with other ERP vendors.

AVANTIS: and quality control management. Avantis software manages inventories, maintenance schedules, and all related paperwork. Marcam sells its product primarily through its direct sales force in 19 offices worldwide. The Company also partners with a number of industry-leading vendors including HP, NEC, IBM, and PeopleSoft. By fiscal year end 1998, the Company had approximately 1,400 customer sites in over 40 countries. In 1999, Marcam Solutions was acquired by Wonderware, the factory automation division of

Resurrection, Vitality And Perseverance Of Former ERP Goners Part Two: Geac & Baan
While not doing as well as Ross and SSA GT, Geac and Baan are certainly on the right track.

AVANTIS: companies Baan, Wonderware and Avantis , under the leadership of Laurens van der Tang, the president of Baan, and Joe Cowan, who was chief operating officer of the combined organization until his recent departure to EXE. The vendor has last fall also reformed its indirect sales channel organization to be comprised of several companies that sell the entire iBaan suite of solutions to customers in a specific market-size category. The channel develops and implements sales programs that contribute to drive

Baan Seeking A New Foster Home -- A Déjà vu Or Not Quite?Part Two: Baan Under Invensys
Baan's phase under Invensys, after a turbulent three years that have seen considerable people, market and technology change, and considerable worthwhile investment. Recently-announced technology developments seem to be in sync with the market's trends, and leaning shrewdly towards the requirements of holistic business requirements from engineering design collaboration, to CRM and on to SCM.

AVANTIS: companies Baan, Wonderware and Avantis, under the leadership of Laurens van der Tang, the president of Baan, and Joe Cowan, who was chief operating officer of the combined organization until his recent departure to EXE Technologies . Unfortunately, the burden of debt, with no sign of the market recovery in sight, has forced Invensys to back out of its above strategy. At the end of the day, the Baan s phase under Invensys, after a turbulent three years that have seen considerable people, market and

Manufacturer s Nirvana -- Real-Time Actionable Information
How many ERP vendors, including the largest ones, have natively built-in real-time production monitoring, warehousing management, time and attendance capture, and complete quality management systems?

AVANTIS: Baan , Marcam , Avantis , and Wonderware , respective ERP and MES products, yet never delivered together (see The Name and Ownership Change Roulette Wheel for Marcam Stops at SSA Globa—Part Three: Last-Ditch Effort by Invensys ). Thus, IQMS ( http://www.iqms.com ), a privately held, Paso Robles, CA (US)-based developer of EnterpriseIQ , a well attuned extended-ERP system for small and mid-size plastic processors and like repetitive manufacturers, might be unique in the entire ERP arena, and not only

The Name and Ownership Change Roulette Wheel for Marcam Stops at SSA GlobalPart Four: What SSA Global Gets
The acquired company, although constantly morphing from Marcam to IPS back to Marcam, has a good track record and a heritage of selling solutions to manage divisional or autonomous plant sites within selected process industries.

AVANTIS: (maintenance management applications, whose Avantis product is now a part of a different unit within Invensys) in 1991, and the MAPICS product line from IBM in 1993. Marcam launched Protean ERP software in 1994, and during 1995, it all but halted major development of a client/server version of PRISM to focus on its similar but technologically more advanced and seemingly more prospective Protean line. The PRISM and Protean software suites both automate tasks such as resource planning, production model

Baan Seeking A New Foster Home -- A Déjà vu Or Not Quite?Part Three: Market Impact and User Recommendations
Baan's focus on discrete manufacturing has not been a close fit with Invensys' plant automation products that have been geared mostly to process industries. To that end, Invensys has had a nightmarish job of trying to rationalize Baan and its process ERP counterparts, Protean and PRISM, development - strategy abandonment has been a catchphrase of late. Thus, while the savvy buyer will obtain much improved technology and large customer base in need for new products, the overriding problem has been the lingering negative sentiment around the company, as viability of the vendor is of utmost importance in the enterprise applications space.

AVANTIS: such as Wonderware and Avantis , Invensys Production Solutions also provides a broad set of capabilities for the process sector. Thus, Baan will have then been singled out as the discrete manufacturing black sheep in the family, causing Invensys to review the carrying value of its investment in Baan, and to move it into its window shop Development division. Still, one should note that Invensys has not deteriorated Baan s business; quite the contrary, it has kept some prominent Baan veteran staffers in

Reliability driven maintenance (RDM) focuses on understanding the

AVANTIS: its former CMMS division Avantis (now part of Invensys ), upon the acquisition of ShawWare, way back in 1991. Thus, Ivara has lately turned into a primarily reliability driven maintenance vendor with a number of proven implementations. Part of its new identity includes a stronger focus on the company s WorkSmart implementation delivery approach, which ensures clients successfully make the transition to proactive, reliability-based maintenance. Particularly by focusing on the implementation planning

Enterprise Resources Planning (ERP) Market - Dismal 1999, the New Millennium to bring Relief (for Some)
The worsening plight of most ERP vendors, caused by the market slowdown, which started in the fourth quarter of 1998, continued in full force throughout 1999. The market size for 1999, with the 4th quarter yet to be reported, is estimated at $18.5B-$19.5B (12%-16% growth over 1998), with sales expected to top $55B-60B by 2003, for a CAGR of 28%-32%. ERP software suites will become universal business applications that will encompass front-office, business intelligence, and e-commerce/supply chain management, and ERP will no longer be the acronym sufficient enough to cover it, so we would like to suggest a new acronym - iERP, meaning Inter(

AVANTIS: Strengths: Protean, PRISM, and Avantis niche functionality and plant-level features, product flexibility and ongoing post-implementation system agility, tight process manufacturing focus, cross-platform product. Challenges: Poor financial performance, dubious ERP strategy, confinement to process manufacturing, weak financial and distribution modules, lack of expanded ERP modules.
