Therefore, it is no wonder that his resignation has sent

Internet computing has driven the popularity of our database to an all-time high. Lowering prices will increase the overall size of the database market.

Netpliance’s 4X Price Hike - Will It Spell Boom or Doom?


Netpliance, Inc., whose i-opener could be considered the first Internet appliance, recently added functionality, but also decided to raise its hardware “membership kit” price from $99 (down from its normal $199) to $399, in an effort to get profits from more than its online services. Will people be willing to pay an extra $300 for the privilege of using a 10-inch display?

We expect that Netpliance will last until early next year. By that time, the Gateway/AOL appliance will be out, the first MSN Web Companions should be out, and other large manufacturers should be scoring with their appliances. We do not Read More

J.D. Edwards Fires Siebel, Hires YOU


J.D. Edwards announced plans to acquire CRM vendor YOUcentric, Inc. At the same time, they have severed their 18 month relationship with Siebel and ended integration plans between J.D. Edwards core functionalities and Siebel’s eFrontOffice capabilities. Abrupt? Yes. Unexpected? Possibly. In the best interests of J.D. Edwards and their customers? Wholeheartedly yes.

With a best-practice approach, if an automated software process has worked well for a group of companies or an industry, then logic should hold that it would work well for any company similarly aligned. The problem is, claims YOUcentric, this approach forces you to follow the pack rather than capitalize on what processes make your company unique. If the top Read More

Nothing Succeeds Like Success(Factors) - Part 1

NetSuite Had a Sweet IPO. Now What?


The end of 2007, at least in the space that I cover, has certainly been "the most wonderful time of the year" for one vendor - NetSuite. True, prior to that, Deltek had a decent initial public offering (IPO) , and possibly even more important, a stellar Q3 2007 quarterly report thereafter. However, on December 20, 2007 NetSuite Inc., a vendor of on-demand, integrated business management

It is thus no coincidence that both vendors use the Oracle database and AJAX, JavaScript and other Web 2.0 technologies on the User Interface (UI) side. Dan Farber's Read More

In a truly ugly display of how contentious the application server market has become, they argued over whose product was better, faster, cheaper.
