'Collaborative Commerce': ERP, CRM, e-Proc, and SCM Unite! A Series Study: SAP AG


SAP AG has seemingly crossed a strategy chasm, from a strict, stodgy, Not-Invented-Here (NIH) approach to software development and delivery, to a seemingly quite open approach of broad development alliances, company acquisitions, Internet portals development, and a deep, new relationship with IBM for both technology sharing as well as bolstering IBM Consulting’s support for SAP’s new multiple mySAP.com™ initiatives.

Ambitious Plans and Promises: How Will the Market Respond to One Enterprise Software Provider’s Offerings?


The market should commend Infor’s attempt to combine business-specific solutions from a partner like IBM. If nothing else, the fact that Infor can provide integrated and best-in-class offerings poises the vendor to become serious competition for such giants as SAP and Oracle.

Doubtful Thomases might question whether the former SSA Global , MAPICS , etc. were really killing these products and if Infor is just making itself look good by paying lip service to the promise of improvements.

SAP announced upbeat results for Q2 2001 and reconfirmed the positive outlook for the rest of the year amid the bloodbath of many of its competitors.
