Oracle Gets SAP'ed by IBM


SAP AG (NYSE: SAP) and IBM (NYSE: IBM) today announced an agreement to expand their global sales, marketing and development relationship. As part of this agreement, the two companies will work together to provide expanded choices for customers that wish to implement mySAP.com and IBM's DB2 Universal Database on a variety of hardware platforms. Following in the footsteps of Siebel, SAP has abandoned Oracle and is standardizing on DB2 UDB as its preferred platform. The deal is estimated at $400 million in sales annually.

(TEC predicted this development in September, see Vendor Challenges in Oracle Co. - Internet Paradigm Boosts Applications Growth , September 1, 1999.)

Welcome to TEC's Vendor Spotlight series. This installment focuses on Agresso, a Netherlands-based ERP vendor now enjoying its fair share of success in North America. So how successful is Agresso? Just ask SAP—Agresso claims to have won over $50 million (USD) against SAP in 61 separate deals…

But if the somewhat technical talk of architecture doesn't do much for you, then this, also taken from TEC's Market Comparison Report , helps illuminate the practical side of the Read More

Is Oracle Becoming Invincible?


On June 20, Oracle Corporation, the leading provider of database and enterprise software applications, announced its fiscal 2000 results, claiming that it has passed SAP to become the world's largest applications software company.

oracle vendor  While the statement that Oracle is the most improved ERP vendor within the last few years would be a dead certainty, the idea of it becoming the No. 1 applications vendor remains too far-fetched. One swallow does not make a summer . Oracle's first quarterly sales numbers greater than SAP are an encouraging victory for Oracle and disturbing news for SAP (which, in a knee-jerk reaction, released an abrasively toned rebuttal press release), but do not represent Oracle's inauguration as the No. 1 ERP vendor Read More

Oracle Loses Again


SAP AG has chosen SQL Server 7.0 as its strategic database for the Windows platform. The companies also will cooperate to make the Windows 2000 OS available as a platform choice for customers wishing to implement mySAP.com solutions.
