Is SSA GT Betting Infini(um)tely On Acquisitions? Part Four: Challenges and User Recommendations.


User companies will need serious convincing that SSA GT will not 'stabilize' or even discontinue some brands. Moreover, even in the cases where the company has been showing close attention to its customers’ wish lists, its crucial tenet of operation is profitability and setting realistic goals (the ROI justification works for the vendor as well).

Software Leasing Trend Slams Baan Earnings


On October 21, the Baan Company announced a larger-than-expected loss of $25M.

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


SAP AG has seemingly crossed a strategy chasm, from a strict, stodgy, Not-Invented-Here (NIH) approach to software development and delivery, to a seemingly quite open approach of broad development alliances, company acquisitions, Internet portals development, and a deep, new relationship with IBM for both technology sharing as well as bolstering IBM Consulting’s support for SAP’s new multiple mySAP.com™ initiatives.

Baan's focus on discrete manufacturing has not been a close fit with Invensys' plant automation products that have been geared mostly to process industries. To that end, Invensys has had a nightmarish job of trying to rationalize Baan and its process ERP counterparts, Protean and PRISM, development - strategy abandonment has been a catchphrase of late. Thus, while the savvy buyer will obtain much improved technology and large customer base in need for new products, the overriding problem has been the lingering negative sentiment around the company, as viability of the vendor is of utmost importance in the enterprise applications space.
