How Has MAPICS Been Extending?
MAPICS, one of the leading mid-market ERP vendors, has significantly expanded its product offering during 2000. On June 15, MAPICS announced the release of XA 6.0, the latest version of its flagship AS/400-based Extended Enterprise Application (EEA). Earlier, on May 9, MAPICS announced the delivery of its second flagship product, the Point.Man Extended Enterprise Edition, which enables customers, suppliers, distributors and partners to collaborate via the Internet. We express our view regarding its latest announcements and strategic direction.
products are in tune with the MAPICS focus and can help it mine its existing customer base. This merger has created a company with potential combined revenue of $160M and a product portfolio that can run on all major hardware platforms, thereby leapfrogging most of its competitors in the mid-range ERP market. We favorably regard the company s recent e-business initiatives, which are in tune with the market trends and its customers requirements. Moreover, we condone MAPICS downplaying its role as yet
Analyzing MAPICS’ Further Steps After Frontstep

However, as the customers from both camps have been uncertain of their provider's strategy, given that a bigger size brings about the need to rationalize multiple products within the same marketplace, after a few months long period of buried heads and brainstorming sessions, MAPICS has lately been engaged in explaining its rationale, as to set many customers' minds at ease.
-- Microsoft and IBM. With MAPICS SyteLine 7, the vendor now boasts a notable application built on a .NET architecture. However, the loyal AS/400 install base should rest assured of MAPICS continued support for the platform. The big news on the MAPICS ERP for iSeries product side is that the version 7.3, which is slated for December, will feature Double Byte support, and expanded Java 2 Enterprise Edition (J2EE)-based client technology.

MAPICS To Leap Forward In A Frontstep Way
MAPICS’ acquisition of Frontstep is a real positive given that Frontstep had already spent ~$60 million to deliver its entire product line, which includes ERP, CRM, and SCM, on a single technology platform, a notable feat. The combined company will have solutions that have been implemented in more than 10,000 customer sites worldwide in only a handful of industries of focus. Now the work of battling Tier 1 vendors and mid-market juggernauts begins.
consequently at multi-national companies with diverse technologies enterprise-wide, going forward, newly enlarged MAPICS logically desires to become an active dual (i.e., both J2EE and Microsoft .NET compliant) platform vendor. To that end, the company will continue to sell and enhance its traditional breadwinning product for the IBM iSeries (formerly AS/400 ) platform along with Frontstep s newly rejuvenated SyteLine 7 product, which was recently completely re-architected on Microsoft .NET .

We also agree with MAPICS plans of enhancing its core ERP products and continued emphasis on integrating e-commerce components with its back-office systems. The most recent
