SAP HANA-One Technology to Watch in 2012 (and Beyond)


Did you know that SAP HANA is much more than a high-speed analytic appliance? TEC principal analyst P.J.

Lawson Software-IPO and Several Acquisitions After Part Three: Market Impact


In several aspects, Lawson Software could be regarded as an enterprise applications market anomaly. For one, at its peak in fiscal 2002, the company boasted annual revenues of nearly $430 million, but it still has only a slender (less than 10 percent of revenues) presence outside of its US domestic market. Further, it remains a major force in enterprise applications software, yet it does not cater the functionality to manufacturing sectors, and the vastness of its sales are thus derived from just a few service-oriented vertical markets-primarily health care and retail.
