In the last decade or so of covering the enterprise applications market, I've witnessed so many products and vendors disappearing and reappearing under a different name, ownership, etc., but it is for the first time now, at the end of 2007 that I saw basically the same vendor go public for the second time (and in a 10 year timespan). Namely, Deltek (evaluate its flagship product), the leading
new construction proposal
operations, and help win new business. To that end, it combines financial management, time and expense (T&E) management, billing, project management, resource planning and management, document management, client relationship management, and proposal and marketing automation, all into one integrated solution. The gist of Deltek Vision's value proposition is to empower project-based professional services businesses to maximize profitability by reducing budget overruns and increasing resource utilization.
