Microsoft Dynamics CRM: Much More Than Meets the Eye - Part 1


While Microsoft Corporation has not usually been that forthcoming about breaking down its revenues per individual product lines, during one earnings announcement call for financial analysts in 2009, the worldwide leader in software, services, and solutions for people and businesses pointed out the following three products as its best performers: SharePoint, Microsoft

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.

iverson axapta  should make it an attractive opportunity to enhance existing horizontal financial management applications. However, the combination of the respective niche public sector and nonprofit accounting provider and MBS Great Plains does not necessarily create an overnight nonprofit and public sector accounting leader, though many previously stalwart providers will see MBS coming in their rear mirror. Both MBS and Best Software will at least face stiff competition from Blackbaud that boasts a broad, scalable, Read More

Microsoft Business Network (MBN)--Coming of Age? Part Three: Challenges and Competition


While on the surface, there are few economic or strategic reasons for organizations to persist with electronic data interchange (EDI), many seem reluctant to adopt the alternative at this stage. In fact, there has been almost negligible growth in the number of organizations replacing their EDI-based systems with XML.

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.

Yet, despite its long time indisputable upbeat posture, RedPrairie''s expertise has remained mainly within the North American market and within the trucking mode of transportation, and its solution footprint has needed improvements in terms of multinational capabilities, ITL compliance, contract management, and payment processes. Although the vendor opened a European office in the not so recent past, it 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.

FRx Poised to Permeate Many More General Ledgers Part Two: Market Impact


Since FRx already has integrations built to over forty leading general ledgers (and now a scalable tool kit available to accommodate virtually all others), the idea was for users to leverage the investment they have already made in their GL and to add increased functionality as their needs become more sophisticated.

Microsoft Dynamics AX: The Chosen One Among Microsoft Dynamics ERP Equals? - Part 2


Part 1 of this blog series positioned all four Microsoft Dynamics enterprise resource planning (ERP) product lines and concluded that Microsoft Dynamics AX [evaluate this product] has been selected as the ace and global “platform” player in selected industries in the Dynamics ERP lineup. In other words, the product has been providing an industry-enabling layer upon which certified partners can

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.

iverson axapta  From a Management Perspective: Part One We have been hearing about service-oriented architecture (SOA) for some time.
