How Has MAPICS Been Extending?
MAPICS, one of the leading mid-market ERP vendors, has significantly expanded its product offering during 2000.

Analyzing MAPICS’ Further Steps After Frontstep
The former staunch IBM AS/400-based ERP supplier to mid-market manufacturing companies, MAPICS, has become quite a larger vendor and with a wider choice of products due to the recent acquisition of Frontstep and its entire product line, which included ERP, CRM, and SCM, on a single Microsoft .NET-based technology platform. However, as the customers from both camps have been uncertain of their provider's strategy, given that a bigger size brings about the need to rationalize multiple products within the same marketplace, after a few months long period of buried heads and brainstorming sessions, MAPICS has lately been engaged in explaining its rationale, as to set many customers' minds at ease.

MAPICS: former competitor Frontstep (see MAPICS To Leap Forward In A Frontstep Way ), has shown both the signs of significant changes but also a persistence of a number of its historically recognizable invariant tenets of operation. The former steadfast IBM iSeries (formerly IBM AS/400 )-based ERP supplier to mid-market manufacturing companies, MAPICS, has since indeed become quite a larger vendor and with a wider choice of products, having recently acquired a Microsoft .NET -based competitor. However, as the cus

MAPICS To Leap Forward In A Frontstep Way
MAPICS’ acquisition of Frontstep is a real positive given that Frontstep had already spent ~$60 million to deliver its entire product line, which includes ERP, CRM, and SCM, on a single technology platform, a notable feat. The combined company will have solutions that have been implemented in more than 10,000 customer sites worldwide in only a handful of industries of focus. Now the work of battling Tier 1 vendors and mid-market juggernauts begins.

MAPICS: Will Customer Satisfaction be Enough?
MAPICS has consistently scored above average in the following customer-service & support benchmarks: reliability, quality of support, vendor stability, ease of doing business, and affiliate product and industry knowledge. However, limited platform support means that AS/400 products will contribute more than 50% of total license revenue within next 5 years. Furthermore, for the next 18 months, approx. 80% of license revenue will come from its existing customer base, who will want to either replace an old MAPICS product or add new modules to an existing MAPICS XA installation.

MAPICS: and large corporate divisions. MAPICS revenues in fiscal 1998 were $130 million. IBM launched MAPICS II (Manufacturing Accounting and Production Information Control System) software in 1978. It was the first MRP system commercially available for manufacturing enterprises and held the lion s share of the marketplace for many years, until the advent of client-server computing and emergence of the new generation of MRP systems, namely ERP. MAPICS II evolved from its start on the earliest midrange computers t

The Essential Supply Chain
Supply Chain Management (SCM) once viewed as a way to obtain a competitive advantage, is now perceived as a logical and necessary extension of Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP). The reasons: First, traditional ERP systems lack the advanced planning tools necessary for companies to respond to an increasingly competitive business environment. Second, advances in computing power and data transmission enable disparate entities to communicate efficiently and at a low cost. Finally, vendors have observed the complementary nature of SCM and ERP and are engaged in consolidation of their product suites.

User Recommendations We believe that the operations of existing users will not be seriously jeopardized in the short term. Nevertheless, they should be on a high alert and develop medium- to long-term plans for moving to new technology. Alternatively, they may want to consider beefing up their internal resources from the expected exodus of very experienced BPCS consultants. Until the acquisition

Intentia’s Intents To Be More Fashionable
Intentia remains solid, with both a new product portfolio and an increase in license revenue. The company, which is unimpeded by the current economic slump, finally seems to be realizing that it needs to achieve stronger global brand recognition well beyond its esoteric apparel/fashion vertical stronghold.

MAPICS: like J.D. Edwards and MAPICS . Although Intentia has been platform independent since 1999, it still has one more myth to debunk on top of its otherwise low brand recognition in Americas. Therefore, the company s big challenge remains its still nascent toehold in North America, without which no vendor can have a strong global competitive position. Recent alliances like the ones with Sun Microsystems, IBM and MRO.COM marketplace, might promote Intentia s visibility and give it a quantum leap. The company

ROI Systems - A Little ERP Fellow That Gets By
ROI Systems continues its disciplined new technology adoption. The moderation component of its strategy has been paying off, which proves crucial these days when many of its peers that have traditionally had more exciting and flashy products are facing the crunch.

MAPICS: e.g. Lawson Software , MAPICS or Microsoft Great Plains that are renowned for a good customer service, let alone the Tier 1 vendors, which customers still run on several generations old product releases. ROI may continue to be successful even in the current economic slowdown should it successfully address the concerns of smaller manufacturers, who are often intimidated by the perceived complexity of enterprise applications. These smaller manufacturers still have a need to get on board with fundamental

Does NavisionDamgaard Merger Mark Further Mid-Market Consolidation?
While the higher end of ERP market has (surprisingly) experienced only limited merger & acquisition activity during 2000 (mainly seen in ERP losers been devoured by ERP outsiders), the mid-market has seen more significant intra-market activity. The latest one was the merger between Navision Software and Damgaard.

MAPICS: QAD, IFS, Great Plains, MAPICS, and Intentia to name but a few, but also increasingly by Tier 1 vendors that are looking for additional revenue and market share growth (for more information, see SAP Claims Big Gains In The Low-End Battleground ).
