While the Fujitsu/Glovia relationship has worked well in Japan, a difficult market for many other ERP vendors to penetrate, it may prove to be quite a different case in other markets. Further, until recently, Glovia’s middle and top management team had long been in a state of flux and often poached by recently higher-flying competitors in the markets it attempts to regain.

Transmeta to Intel/AMD: Eat Our Dust
