Microsoft’s ambition will be its greatest challenge, as the company is concurrently experiencing an almost disruptive technology transition from Windows to .NET

navision utilities  With the addition of Navision's array of applications, some of which had long been direct competition to the Great Plains products and with many products still leveraging proprietary toolsets, the division will have a challenge to figure out how to leverage the installed base of over 260,000 customers and how to avoid impending products/geographies conflicts in over 4,000 combined partners.

They do it like that in the Balkans -- Select and deploy ERP, I mean (Part I)


The launch of TEC’s blog has somewhat coincided with my visit to Belgrade, Serbia (what used to be Yugoslavia and then Serbia @ Montenegro) for personal reasons. Those several days spent in my homeland in late October/early November (whereby I missed my beloved Boston Red Sox’ winning the MLB World Series ’07 Championship, darn it!) I at least used this time to also learn about the enterprise

Microsoft 'The Great' Poised To Conquer Mid-Market, Once and Again Part 2: Challenges and User Recommendations


Microsoft's reticence to comment on any timelines of product integration and operations mergers, to our belief, stems from their genuine inability to foresee it at this stage. Still, although the indications that the business will continue to be as usual are strong, Microsoft may eventually decide to streamline its diverse, likely redundant, product mix, staff, and channel. Once Microsoft figures it out and gets a much clearer picture, it should emerge as a mid-market leader making its competitors scramble to better its value proposition.

In 2012, there is still no such thing as a true “total solution provider” for energy and utility companies.
