Will Sage Group Cement Its SME Leadership with ACCPAC and Softline Acquisitions? Part Eight: More Challenges and User Recommendations


Best Software/Sage will remain a pragmatic company that delivers products based on a savvy understanding of its customers' needs and the competitive forces in the market, and on constant adaptability. It is still standing on top of the hill in many SME markets, and it is typically a much more difficult task for anyone to capture the hill than to defend it.

Baan - What Will The Future In Invensys’ Stable Bring? Part 1: About Baan


Baan, once a leading global provider of ERP software hopes its adoptive parent, Invensys, will put it back on the enterprise software applications map. However, we believe Baan’s path to full recovery will be quite thorny. Part 1 discusses Baan’s history and where it is headed under Invensys.

Subsequently, Baan cut about 20% of its workforce and closed or consolidated dozens of offices worldwide. The accounting turmoil, restructuring, a market slump, and difficulties in integrating the acquired products, particularly in merging the myriad of sales teams with different skill sets, all caused a substantial loss and tainted reputation in 1998.

SAP Backpedals Its SaaS Forays -- By Design or Under Duress?


Let me start this blog post with a huge disclaimer: I have no intentions of wilfully beating up on SAP whatsoever!

Lawson Software-IPO and Several Acquisitions After Part Three: Market Impact


In several aspects, Lawson Software could be regarded as an enterprise applications market anomaly. For one, at its peak in fiscal 2002, the company boasted annual revenues of nearly $430 million, but it still has only a slender (less than 10 percent of revenues) presence outside of its US domestic market. Further, it remains a major force in enterprise applications software, yet it does not cater the functionality to manufacturing sectors, and the vastness of its sales are thus derived from just a few service-oriented vertical markets-primarily health care and retail.

lawsuit loans  Software-IPO and Several Acquisitions After Part Three: Market Impact Market Impact Although Lawson Software, Inc. (NASDAQ: LWSN) has a long trail of success, throughout 2002 it encountered many simultaneous challenges. Still, after initially chalking up and experiencing hiccups, the vendor seems to be weathering the storm and getting back on track. While it is quite difficult to compete against the likes of SAP , PeopleSoft , and Oracle , it is certainly not impossible, as witnessed in the past (see Read More

Microsoft's Open Source Licenses


This post is not an oxymoron. The Open Source Initiative recently approved two Microsoft licenses (the Microsoft Reciprocal License and the Microsoft Public License) as compliant with the open source definition. Why would Microsoft want to publish an open source license? The very idea of Microsoft participating in the open source community might sound odd. After all, hasn't Microsoft been one
