In addition to Baan being in a better shape and hardly resembling its 1999/2000 incarnation this time the vendor was rather a victim of its now ex parent's sins' than of self-inflicted wounds, which was the case prior to its Invensys stint.

PeopleSoft - Are Business Intelligence and e-Commerce Enough?


PeopleSoft is currently developing the PeopleSoft Business Network (PSBN), which should incorporate business transactions, knowledge and analytical tools within and beyond enterprise boundaries. PSBN and EPM initiatives have the potential to increase revenues, however the coveted 50%+ annual growth is not achievable without strong product offerings in CRM and manufacturing area...

The Company went public in 1992 and has grown from a $113 million HRMS vendor in 1994 into a $1.3 billion software powerhouse in only five years (see PeopleSoft, Inc. Annual Results Chart).

SAP, PeopleSoft Earnings Look Brighter; ERP Strikes Back


On January 7, taking many by surprise, enterprise software giant SAP pre-announced fourth quarter earnings, saying pre-tax earnings had doubled the final quarter of 1999 after a third-quarter profit warning. License revenue skyrocketed 40% to 800M EUR ($822.7M U.S.) in the fourth quarter and sales rose 25%, well above Wall Street estimates.

peoplesoft baan  results from SAP and PeopleSoft as well as strong recent reports from J.D. Edwards and Oracle Corporation demonstrate the market is on its way back. We expect sales to return to full force by the end of the second quarter 2000. Only the Baan Company continues to struggle, since its business situation remains seriously aggravated in the wake of its CEO and CFO resignations earlier this month.

Is Baan Clinically Dead?


On January 4, 2000 Baan, Europe's No. 2 business software company, sank deeper into trouble as its CEO resigned and it forecast a fourth quarter loss of $240 million to $250 million after restructuring. Its shares plunged over 30 percent as analysts cut recommendations on the loss-making vendor, which has yet to name a replacement for Mary Coleman, who is returning to her Silicon Valley home after taking charge only last May.

peoplesoft baan  main competitors' (SAP and PeopleSoft) recent bullish Q4 earning predictions. Mary Coleman was undisputedly the spirit and torchbearer of the turnaround of the company, and her departure is a serious blow to the company's already shaky situation. Furthermore, we believe that Baan's vagrant strategy manifested in a detour from its core ERP business, which was its core competency, in favor of e-commerce, where it is a relative newcomer, is particularly disconcerting. Stopping development of both its core Read More

PeopleSoft Gathers Manufacturing and SCM Wherewithal Part Two: Market Impact


The PeopleSoft-J.D. Edwards merger was, in great part, about retaining the big five (or big four, or big three) seat and the need to be bigger within shrinking market opportunities. The combined vendors should now a have solid foothold against SAP and Oracle, particularly because one better-performing side could, if necessary, cover up for the underachieving one.

peoplesoft baan  the next prey. Indeed, PeopleSoft could have achieved most of its objectives by acquiring,,for example, Baan , QAD , Epicor , IFS , Intentia , or i2 Technologies for only a fraction of J.D. Edwards' price tag (provided, of course, these vendors' shareholders were keen on a prospective sale). Why then this significant and quite pricey acquisition that possibly prompted Oracle to join the slugfest? In addition to the joy of finally vaulting over its formidable foes, Siebel Systems and Oracle , there were Read More

PeopleSoft Revamps World for Its Mid-Market "Express" Conquest Part Two: Market Impact


The major factors of success in business applications for the mid-market segment have traditionally been--flexible pricing, packaging and deployment options; speed of implementation; vertical focus; interconnectivity to other applications and legacy systems; product scalability and scope expandability; Internet and wireless device accessibility; low cost business-to-business (B2B) electronic connectivity; and a single point of contact possibly with a local consulting and implementation support. PeopleSoft seems to have captured (or at least tackled) most of these.

peoplesoft baan  Edwards & Company , PeopleSoft , Inc. (NASDAQ: PSFT), has been making decisive moves to deliver a number of new, and refurbished solutions, in a great part by leveraging its recently acquired product portfolio. Although the vendor has acted swiftly on assimilating its former competitor (see PeopleSoft Gathers Manufacturing and SCM Wherewithal ), these recent initiatives might show us that the vendor has moved even farther from the digestion stage and into a full-blown execution and productivity phase.

'Collaborative Commerce': ERP, CRM, e-Proc, and SCM Unite! A Series Study: PeopleSoft


PeopleSoft has risen from its relatively humble origins in the Human Resource Management Systems (HRMS) arena, its sole focus as it begun life in 1987. Over the course of a decade or so, it added Supply Chain Management and Financials to its list of application offerings. In the last few years, in the face of slowing cash flows from its traditional strongholds, it has gone full bore toward Internet-based enterprise-wide - even cross-enterprise - solutions, trying to enter the game and be competitive with other top tier ERP-turned Collaborative Commerce vendors. Showing fiscal growth and, very-recently, notably-improved market acceptance, Peoplesoft may be the enterprise software turnaround story of the last decade.

Baan And SSA GT Merge To Form A Mid-Market Empire With An ''Iron Side'' Part Three: Market Impact On SSA GT


Like the previous few SSA GT's acquisitions, this merger too seems aimed at enlarging combined Baan and SSA GT's customer base, market share, and, more importantly, its predictably recurring support revenue and consequently larger R&D pool.

(SSA), also once a high-flying ERP vendor. It is even spooky to see Baan acquired by its former ill-fated brother in arms', although SSA GT's current bullish posture should bode well for Baan's future. To be fair, the SSA GT's progenitor, former Read More

PeopleSoft Annuncio-es Continuation Of Its Shopping Spree


While PeopleSoft has added yet another bit of weight to its applications portfolio with the acquisition of Annuncio, potentially earning thereby the ability to manage marketing campaigns and track individual customer's interactions across online and off-line channels, one is to wait and see how quickly and easily the company will assimilate a number of smaller products it has recently bought.
