BI Approaches of Enterprise Software Vendors


The need for business intelligence (BI) is real for all enterprise software users.

BI and BPM: It’s Not as Blurry as You Think


There seems to be a blurry line between business intelligence (BI) and business performance management (BPM) applications. Some software vendors offer solutions that actually incorporate BPM and BI within the same application, which makes it harder to distinguish between these two software solutions. The following are some—certainly not all—key differentiators between BI and/or BPM functionality

ERP Vendors Intrude on SCE/WMS Safe Haven


Within the warehouse management system (WMS) market, which is still the main breadwinning offering for most of the SCE vendors, most products are functionally on par with mere nuances in ease of configuration or industry focus to differentiate the winner. ERP vendors have taken advantage of this unfavorable perception for WMS specialists to in the very least shore up their huge install bases, if not compete for some "green field" WMS opportunities.
