Selecting PLM Software Solutions Vendors Part 3 - A Timesaving Solution


In PLM, there is no single vendor that can meet all of the requirements, and the market is still immature, so almost every product can be the right solution provided a certain set of requirements. The Catch 22 for both buyers and vendors is to pinpoint the right opportunity in this ongoing 'dating game'.

Message to ERP Vendors: Honesty versus Glitz


It’s a bit surprising that sales teams from some ERP vendors are still under the impression that simply wining and dining a customer is enough to win a sale. It’s this type of hubris that can cost vendors entire projects. Recently, I was helping with a customer’s software evaluation and selection process. Yes, we have products and solutions that extend beyond the simple self-service tool usage

Seeking Vendors, the Early Part of Selection


How do you figure out, from within a large range of software vendors, which vendors to start evaluating? I'm curious to see some feedback on what most people use to start researching and narrowing down their list of software vendors before going into an RFI process.

Mid-Market ERP Vendors Doing CRM & SCM In A DIY Fashion Part 2: Market Impact


Tier2/Tier 3 vendors are prepared to endure the onslaught of the likes of SAP, Oracle, and PeopleSoft, as well as of proverbial mid-market leaders such as J.D. Edwards, Baan, Intentia, QAD, IFS and Epicor, and newly formed mid-market juggernauts like Microsoft Great Plains, Best Software (formerly Sage Software), and Navision, to name some. Frontstep and the Syspro Group lead the way.

Part I of this blog series tried to analyze not only the opportunity but also the many related strings attached stemming from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (ARRA), a.k.a. the Economic Stimulus Plan. The inspiration came from my attendance of the Deltek Insight 2009 user conference last May, where Deltek decided to fill a market need by convening a separate

Working with Smaller ERP Vendors: The Pros and the Cons


During briefings with small ERP vendors, I often hear the argument that they are more flexible and can better respond to their customers’ needs than larger vendors. The ultimate example: “You can even talk to the CEO if you need to.” But would you want to? Bypassing the usual workflows and calling the CEO (this actually really happens) may not be a recipe for the best technical support ever.

What Large-scale HCM Software Solutions Are Missing: Enter HCM Niche Vendors


Human capital management (HCM) solutions are relatively recent in the software for business market. Until recent years, most HCM vendors were more or less niche vendors. In fact, the novelty of HCM solutions still permits the emergence of new niche vendors, a phenomenon that does not occur in more mature markets like ERP, where the appearance of brand-new niche vendors is rare.
