Ariba Dances for Joy in Quarter Time


Ariba, Inc., E-purchasing's prima ballerina, trotted out its latest financial figures, showing a quarterly revenue increase of 243% over the previous year.

Still, we observe that there is much less competition for Ariba in the marketplace-enabling arena than on the desktop. We think that as Ariba develops on the Ariba Network side there's some chance (probability 35%) of a separation, such as sale or spawning a company, between the desktop and Network parts of the company. User Recommendations We recommend that the largest enterprises continue to evaluate Ariba for provision of their Read More

MAPICS Moving On Pragmatically Part 4: Competition and User Recommendations


Production management remains MAPICS’ strongest spot, and, therefore, it has often been implemented only in manufacturing divisions of large global organizations that use a Tier 1 ERP product for corporate financials and/or HR applications.

Existing MAPICS ERP customers should review the above-mentioned enhancements (both developed by MAPICS and through alliances) with their local affiliate with an eye towards extending the value of existing applications. MAPICS customers with custom systems or products from other vendors should review the affiliate's development capabilities in order to gain Read More

Bob Eastman, senior SCM analyst, brings you a round-up of news from Syspro, American Software, and SERUS.

semiconductor news  (think “e2open for the semiconductor industry”—although e2open would undoubtedly have something to say about this), Serus is the smallest of these three vendors.

@Home Scans Own Customers
