MAPICS Moving On Pragmatically Part 4: Competition and User Recommendations


Production management remains MAPICS’ strongest spot, and, therefore, it has often been implemented only in manufacturing divisions of large global organizations that use a Tier 1 ERP product for corporate financials and/or HR applications. Therefore, executing the ambitious initiatives with its modest albeit solid resources compared to the above competitors will be a notable challenge.

high concrete  conundrum, for penetrating the higher-end of the market since MAPICS is not at the forefront of natively provided multi-national financials/consolidation, budgeting, project accounting/management, and human resources (HR) functionality. Without these in hand, it is a tall order for any vendor to penetrate the corporate management level competing against likes of Oracle, SAP and PeopleSoft. Production management remains MAPICS' strongest spot, and, therefore, it has often been implemented only in Read More

Microsoft Lays Enforced-Concrete Foundation For Its Business Solutions Part 2: Market Impact


Stampede 2002 has radiated moderate optimism within VARs and other attendees, in a sharp contrast with many other user or industry conferences where we have felt a generally somber, anxious, or at least subdued mood. Small wonder for this isolated ebullience, given that, despite the current soft market, both MBS and most of its partners are still operating well, are discussing closing new accounts, and even expanding.

IBM’s “Shark” Eaten by EMC’s “BASS”


EMC announced its latest high-end Symmetrix models, capable of scaling up to 19.2 terabytes of disk space. Perhaps they should name it the BASS (Big-Advanced Storage System, for the more refined among you), since they’re trying to sink IBM’s “Shark”.

high concrete  announcement sets the bar high enough that IBM will be hard-pressed to match it. Although IBM's ESS (The Product Formerly Known as Prince - er, uh, Shark ) was in the same general ballpark for enterprise storage - in fact its rated capacity exceeded EMC's former maximum - that proximity lasted only nine months. The Symmetrix 8730 now has a 70% edge in max capacity, and a 75% edge in internal bandwidth/bus speed (1.4 GB/sec vs. 800 MB/sec).
