Selectica Joins NetSuite’s Configure-Price-Quote Fray
One impression from the recently held SuiteWorld 2013 conference was that NetSuite’s partner ecosystem is becoming extensive – Autodesk and ClickSoftware
(now FPX ) and Trilogy (now part of Versata ) being the others, Selectica has managed to remain independently public and reinvent itself for the cloud computing era. FPX has done something similar under its new private owners, but it competes only in salesforce.com ’s ecosystem against Apttus, Cincom Acquire , and BigMachines (in which ecosystem Selectica is active as well). For its part, Trilogy has hardly ever been heard about in new deals, let alone in the cloud conversation. When it comes to

Progress Exchange 2013 Part One: What's the Current State of Progress?
By P.J. Jakovljevic (see bio) and Bob Eastman (see bio)As it has been excruciatingly painful for die-hard Boston Red Sox fans to watch their moribund
new company formed by Trilogy Enterprises in late 2012). Even Progress’ once fierce competitors bought—perhaps in a “fire sale” manner—some of its renowned pieces, such as the FuseSource open source middleware framework, which recently went to Red Hat , and the Apama complex event processing (CEP) platform, which was sold in June to Software AG . Now, the Red Sox might have already redeemed themselves with the (unexpectedly) stellar regular 2013 MLB season (and also with a great start to the

Symix Sytems: Shifting SME's Focus to Their Customers
Symix is regarded as the originator of the extended ERP concept (CSRP), which has proven to be so attractive to mid-market enterprises that two other leading
and strategic product alliances (Trilogy Software, Keyfile Corp., MCI WorldCom) have led to a very broad product portfolio for Symix. Fig. 2 Vendor Challenges Symix's low market capitalization of approx. $80 million makes the Company a very attractive acquisition target, while its low available cash resources ($5 million) do not provide for any real expansion and/or defensive corporate initiatives. Symix's two-pronged product strategy (SyteLine and SyteCentre), although creating more opportunities in a
Cincom Asserts Expertise In CRM For Complex Manufacturers Part 2: Challenges and User Recommendations
While Cincom's solutions, services, experience and results should resonate well with in the complex manufacturing segment, it competes against a slew of
FirePond , Calico , Trilogy , Pivotal , and Access Commerce (see Access Commerce Spices Up North American CRM Fray) in the realm of SFA/order management with embedded powerful sales configuration capabilities. Furthermore, configurators increasingly are required to provide a direct link with shop floor execution to, for example, add or change an operation, change the work center where the operation is performed, change the run rate on that operation, and change the set-up time, and they also need to
Is There a Way to Avoid Lengthy Catalog Numbers?
A sales configurator needs to be able to "decipher" products' specifications from a rule-based, constructed catalog number. Part number users should query vendors to determine whether their enterprise solutions cater to the needs of industrial automation manufacturers.

CRM For Complex Manufacturers Revolves Around Configuration Software
While pundits have been debating whether the configuration software deserves to be a CRM module on its own, it is certainly a part of the much broader CRM class of products, which typically includes front-office applications for sales force automation (SFA), marketing automation, and field service/call center management.
Customization Drives Complexity - Why It's Hard to Design, Sell, and Produce "Simple" Products
It seems counterintuitive, but the process of selling, designing, and producing what appear to be "simple" products becomes surprisingly complex when manufacturers introduce high levels of customization. How can manufacturers of configured products address this complexity to streamline their processes, reduce cost and increase customer responsiveness?
Symix Sytems: Shifting SME's Focus to Their Customers
Symix is regarded as the originator of the extended ERP concept (CSRP), which has proven to be so attractive to mid-market enterprises that two other leading mid-market vendors entered into specific R&D and licensing agreements with Symix to gain access to its SyteAPS. Despite a highly competitive environment, we predict that Symix Systems will reach $250 million in revenues within the next 3 years, based on attractiveness of its product for discrete manufacturing and distribution within Small-to-Medium Enterprises (SME).
