Should Uniqueness Vouch For Marketing Automation Niche Players?

One reason thereof is the phenomenon of large packaged ERP and/or CRM suite providers to slow or even stall enterprise applications buying decisions even well before their serious market entry. As a result, the niche vendors have to battle to maintain their market dominance despite strong solutions, while the large vendors are still develo Read More

Is Epicor Poised to Rule the Mid-Market Retail Sector? (Part III)


Part II of this blog topic analyzed Epicor's forays into the attractive retail sector via the CRS Retail acquisition two years ago.

Oracle Splurges on MICROS Systems


Oracle announced its intent to acquire MICROS Systems, Inc., a provider of integrated software and hardware solutions to the hospitality and retail industries, for approximately $5.3 billion in cash (or $4.6 billion net of MICROS’ cash on hand).

Xchange Adds To The List Of CRM Point Solutions' Casualties Part Two: Market Impact & User Recommendations


Why has it been so difficult for CRM point solution providers to even find a white knight, which has not generally been the case with even ancient ERP products? Could it be that while the traditional introspective mind-set of ERP becomes history, its functionality remains critical and CRM is being absorbed into ERP solutions?

These vendors either have enough resources and/or they have open solutions that can either supplant or can be grafted onto Xchange customers' instances.

As Hype Becomes Reality, a Radio Frequency Identification Ecosystem Emerges Part Two: The Middleware Dilemma, Partnerships, and What Next?


Given the pressures on radio frequency identification (RFID) middleware vendors, pure-play middleware suppliers will likely either diversify or get absorbed by larger companies. All RFID vendors, regardless of category, will tend to form partnerships to hasten time to market.

ncr realpos 7167  Philips , AT&T , NCR , and Cisco Systems are focusing on the RFID market, and it is currently not clear what role these large technology companies will play, whether it will involve platform integration, middleware, or even business applications that leverage RFID technology.

Data, Data Everywhere: A Special Report on Managing Information


The quantity of information in the world is soaring. Merely keeping up with, and storing new information is difficult enough. Analyzing it, to spot patterns and extract useful information, is harder still. Even so, this data deluge has great potential for good—as long as consumers, companies, and governments make the right choices about when to restrict the flow of data, and when to encourage it.
