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.

Microsoft’s Underlying Platform Parts for Enterprise Applications: Somewhat Explained - Part 1


I can partly understand analysts’ temptation to beat up on Microsoft’s forays into the enterprise applications space. To be fair, "the empire" has had its share of strategic and tactical miscues, as if it had wanted to give these naysayers some ammunition. For one, many analysts and market observers first criticized the giant for not having a unified enterprise resource planning (ERP) product line

TARGIT


TARGIT was founded in 1986 with CEO Morten Sandlykke as one of the founding partners. Back then, we worked closely together with other large Danish software companies like Navision and XAL, known today as MS Dynamics NAV and AX, and we still share the technologies and innovative business ideologies with these platforms. From the very beginning, we developed and sold Business Management Systems. While starting out as a software company providing applications to the retail and oil business, we quickly realized the overwhelming need for analytical processing tools that could help management in day-to-day decision-making and action taking. With the acquisition of Morton Systems, established by Dr. Morten Middelfart, in 1996, TARGIT started to develop a Business Intelligence tool based on the same basic ideas of usability, versatility and ease of implementation that has always been a TARGIT trademark. In October 2000, our company was reorganized; the "new" TARGIT Inc. is a pure business intelligence company that markets only the Business Intelligence software solution; TARGIT BI Suite. The first version of the TARGIT Business Intelligence technology was launched during spring of 1996, and the core technology of TARGIT's Business Intelligence software is protected by several international patents. Today, TARGIT is driven by providing facts that beat fear and enables courageous leadership..
