Microsoft to Add "Encore" Functionality to MBS Great Plains 8.0 Part Three: Challenges and User Recommendations


MBS' current strategy of letting extension functionality proliferate spontaneously largely resembles the current development practice of the open source community. This can be be considered ironic, because open sourcing is something Microsoft loves to hate.

MBS may contend that this has always been a Great Plains only play, and thus, because the product is built on Dexterity it is the tightest solution possible and there are no plans to extend it to the other ERP solutions at this stage. In fact, there will even be a sort of an internal competition, given that MBS already has a partnership with Serenic Software , whose Navigator product is a nonprofit and public sector accounting add-on to MBS Navision. Hence, despite MBS' efforts Read More

Portals: Necessary But Not Self-sufficient


Having moved beyond its original role as a standalone presentation layer to become a part of a larger technology stack, the portal is now considered part of a larger offering, be it in collaboration, vertical-specific applications, or application infrastructure and middleware.

axapta jewelry  , Navision , and Axapta (recently renamed into Microsoft Dynamics GP , Dynamics NAV , and Dynamics AX , respectively), there is no severe risk of Epicor closely tying its portal strategy with Microsoft. This is really another case of co-opetition, where competitors come together for a particular product or concept, yet still remain competitive in the market. Such practices have become common in the industry, and are not particular to Microsoft, especially given Oracle's foray in the database, Read More

Global Software Aspirations


Exact has established a global infrastructure and network of offices offering direct support, sales and services, with the aim of providing customers a consistent level of service.

They have also acquired a bunch of local brands, like Macola, Microsoft Solomon and Navision , Epicor Vista and Avante , or Sage Line and MAS . As for whether carrying these different ERP offerings might hinder Exact's ability to create a truly integrated offering similar to that of Microsoft or Sage, this doesn't appear to be Exact's immediate goal. Exact does not want to hastily converge these into a single product and force users Read More

SOA From a Management Perspective: Part One


The big buzzword in enterprise-wide package software is service-oriented architecture (SOA). SOA promises to solve a company's software ills, making life easier for information technology departments. This research note takes a look at this new architecture and highlights some concerns.

Originally known as Project Green , Microsoft has committed to an initial phase called Wave 1 , which is nearing completion.

Tracing Food Quality and Safety, or We Are What We Eat, After All (Part II)


Part I of this blog post introduced the burning issues of food safety and the ensuing need for traceability. To the end of providing entire food supply chain traceability and information visibility, mid-March, during its CUE 2008 annual user conference, Lawson Software announced the availability of Lawson M3 Trace Engine 3.0, the first version offered within the US market. The application is

What is your opinion, will Lawson establish even Read More

RedPrairie to Spread Across Europe through LIS Acquisition Part Two: Market Impact


It is becoming increasingly important for supply chain execution (SCE) suppliers to have global implementation and service capabilities, while multinational user companies conversely benefit from working with global application providers. Now, the two merged vendors, RedPrairie Corporation and LIS, should have the critical mass and geographical breadth necessary to better serve the needs of their global customers, with local, multilingual support, and to compete for an ever-increasing number of multi-modal transport, multinational engagements.

Conversely, founded in 1985 as Logistics and Industrial Systems , LIS was one of the first UK-based WMS vendors, which has since expanded its footprint within the SCE space, boasting a large installed base in the UK and mainland Europe (nearly 200 installations not including Online's base). Despite this, it only had limited progress in the US. Along the way, ownership of LIS had changed several times, and in 1996, it Read More

Portal Strategy: One Vendor's Story and What It Means to You


Epicor is working with Microsoft so that portal adopters can benefit from SharePoint's models and access to other enterprise data.

axapta jewelry  is that Microsoft's own Axapta , a part of the Microsoft Business Solutions ( MBS ) product line which competes against Epicor, has not yet leveraged the SharePoint Portal solution. In light of this, Epicor will likely up the ante and offer a more complete implementation.

Scala and Microsoft Become (Not So) Strange CRM Bedfellows Part Two: Market Impact Continued


Microsoft's foray into the CRM arena has not been a bed of roses, despite its indisputably large marketing muscle and R&D investment, its strong channel, traditionally attractive pricing policies, and the aura and experience within the market segment. Microsoft CRM remains both a threat and an opportunity for the most nimble mid-market CRM vendors. Microsoft’s entry with CRM evangelism through an array of seminars nationwide has bolstered the market’s awareness of the need for CRM applications.
