PeopleSoft Gathers Manufacturing and SCM Wherewithal Part Two: Market Impact


The PeopleSoft-J.D. Edwards merger was, in great part, about retaining the big five (or big four, or big three) seat and the need to be bigger within shrinking market opportunities. The combined vendors should now a have solid foothold against SAP and Oracle, particularly because one better-performing side could, if necessary, cover up for the underachieving one.

J.D. Edwards - A Collaboration Thought Leader Or A Disguised ERP Follower? Part 1: About J.D. Edwards


Like most of its peers, J.D. Edwards is hoping to rebound by focusing on Internet collaboration and extended-ERP applications. The company has also differentiated itself from competitors by embedding Enterprise Application Integration (EAI) into its OneWorld product. While J.D. Edwards' move into the EAI arena is indisputably risky, we commend its determination to bite the bullet and include integration systems into the core product offering. However, we also believe that managing this large application portfolio, much of which involves partnering or extensive integration and customization, will be cumbersome. Part 1 presents an overview

The Oracle/PeopleSoft Reality Check


While customers may be bemused if not concerned about the Oracle/PeopleSoft merger, they are from a traditionally risk-adverse market. Despite the lush deals offered by the competition, realistically, the only way Oracle will lose customers is through self-inflicted wounds.

j.d edwars europe  PeopleSoft, and especially former J.D Edwards users are likely discomforted, in part because of Oracle''s harsh comments about PeopleSoft products. While Oracle''s stance has since changed, impressions will still linger, and Oracle will have to deliver on its public relations promises. Just as end users are abuzz, so too are vendors who see consolidation as an opportunity to replace existing systems with their products. This brings us to a key question: for both users and vendors, what do the efforts by Read More

J.D. Edwards Finds Its Inner-Self Within Its 5th Incarnation Part 3: Market Impact


In a nutshell, J.D. Edwards seems poised to deliver applications within its traditional verticals that are wide-ranging, integrated, and modular (loosely decoupled) at the same time, which is apparently a clearer message and a better business model for the company. With a new management team the company seems to have found its soul, as it has finally pinpointed the right offering for its target market (both geography, customer size, and vertical segments wise), and it also seems to be exuding an air of confidence without arrogance, which had rarely, if ever, been seen in the past.

Competition Heats Up in ERP Market: Oracle Merger, and SAP and Microsoft Reacts


Although Oracle's product roadmap is beginning to take shape it does not include active marketing of the PeopleSoft and J.D. Edwards product lines.

Shall Bifurcated Tack Reverse J.D. Edwards’ Bad Spell?


By opting now for a “best of both worlds strategy,” J.D. Edwards might finally have a formula of getting out of the doldrums it has been in for some time.
