Will A Big Fish's Splash Cause Minnows' Flush Out Of The CRM Pond? Part Two: Challenges and User Recommendations


The ultimate success of Microsoft CRM will be judged by its follow-up releases. While Applix’ decision to abandon the CRM space and suddenly re-focus on BPM may be regarded as a not quite deliberate move, but rather as a sudden act of taking another plunge. Is the Applix move a harbinger of the future for smaller CRM vendors?

vantage vs oracle  another plunge. From this vantage point, its expansion into CRM several years ago might now be considered as hasty and opportunistic (the company admits that the initially seemingly good idea of marrying CRM and analytics has never materialized). Given the idea has still been purported (see CRM Analytics Brings More Profitability ) and given some vendors' success to cross-sell real-time analytics to e.g. capture and analyze customer interaction from multiple channels, such as Siebel , PeopleSoft , Read More

Infor Strikes Again (at Long Last): Getting “Soft” while Flexing its Muscles? - Part 1


Just when I had begun to think that Ned Lilly’s ERP Graveyard blog might go out of business soon (or at least change its name and charter), here came his new blog entry in early June 2009. The blog post’s cause was the official press release (PR) entitled “SoftBrands Enters Into Definitive Agreement To Be Acquired By Affiliate Of Golden Gate Capital And Infor.” Now, the acquisition was

Thus, those folks that did not fit with the new corporate direction were asked to leave and were replaced by the former members and top executives of large corporations (e.g., Oracle or Fujitsu). Moreover, the company recently instituted a field solutions marketing (formerly product marketing) team, whose role is to  inter alia  pass feedback from the field to the centralized product development team. Previously, the sales person that would shout the most loudly w Read More

Enterprise Applications Battlefield Mid-Year Scoreboard Part 3: IBM


IBM still needs to convince users that it is nimble enough to handle the smaller projects prevalent in today’s cost-conscious market, which may be a concern that is aggravated rather than alleviated by the acquisition.

vantage vs oracle  From an enterprise applications vantage point, this is a worthy accomplishment for IBM, which should gain a healthy number of Siebel , SAP and PeopleSoft implementations, and should also become the global leader in SAP implementations. PwC Consulting's Life Sciences and Pharmaceutical, Oil & Gas, Aerospace & Defense, and Automotive expertise will also be a welcome addition to IGS' traditional strengths in integration and IT outsourcing. IGS will thereby extend its lead in the market in terms of Read More

Experiencing a Different Corporate Culture at QAD Explore 2008


No, my intent here is not necessarily to provide a typical analyst alert after attending a vendor's annual user conference, in this case the QAD Explore 2008 in Orlando, Florida (US) last month. This is not to imply that there was nothing there to write home about either. Quite the contrary, the multiple-day event was, well, eventful for market observers and hundreds of QAD's global customers

Also, the abovementioned MMOG/LE initiative/participation was quite smart to give QAD credibility in the sector beyond mere software. In a nutshell, the initiative entails a checklist of about 200 compliance criteria for automotive suppliers, which is pure know Read More

Welcome to ERP - Distribution Showdown! Epicor Enterprise vs. JDA Supply Chain Planning & Optimization Suite vs. Pronto Xi


I'm Larry Blitz, editor of Technology Evaluation Centers’ (TEC) Vendor Showdown series. Welcome to our latest: ERP - Distribution Showdown. You’ll notice this one has a broader focus than Showdowns we’ve done in the past. Again we’ll be comparing three vendor solutions head-to-head, but not just on functionality. This time we’ll also look at the industries these solutions support, how well they cover different portions of the mid-market segment, and how their installed bases break out geographically. Of course, functionality is again a key component of this Showdown, broken down into four main distribution areas and 13 subareas. We hope you find today’s Showdown helpful and informative, and invite your comments and questions at showdown@technologyevaluation.com.

EAM Showdown! IFS vs. Mincom vs. CHAMPS


Using our EAM Evaluation Center, we compared Mincom Ellipse, CHAMPS, and IFS head-on. For the overall rankings, we looked at the vendors in two basic configurations: with back-office (HR and financials) functionality, for a total of eight main modules, and without, for a total of six main modules. To eliminate any chance of bias, and to ensure a level playing field, all 3,146 criteria comprising the modules and submodules in the EAM request for information (RFI) were given equal weight and priority.
