Process ERP Market Loses PRISM and Protean
Wonderware is reducing the staff dedicated to the ex-Marcam PRISM and Protean products from approximately 400 to less than 100. They will also cease to offer these products, but have indicated a transition to a new product. What impact will this have on existing customers and the Process ERP marketplace?

WONDERWARE: Summary In early October Wonderware , a division of Invensys , announced to employees and customers that it was significantly cutting the headcount and discontinuing marketing and sales efforts for the PRISM and Protean product lines. These products, part of the acquisition of Marcam Corporation in 1999, address the ERP needs of process companies with the majority of the install base being in the food or chemical business. From approximately 400 people, Wonderware will cut headcount to fewer than 100

Solving Enterprise Problems: The Fully-integrated Solution of IQMS
Though superficially, IQMS, a small, quiet ERP provider, may be similar to its competitors, by offering fully-integrated applications and services that are typically expected from larger tier one vendors, IQMS has truly differentiated itself in the market.

SCT Comes Back With a Vengeance
SCT Corporation, an IT solutions provider for a number of disparate industries, announced that the quarter which ended June 30, 2000, was a record quarter for license fee revenue within SCT's process industry solutions business. SCT, which claims experiencing continued success with enterprise-wide, global accounts in the process industries, now has eight out of the top 16 food processors in North America as clients.

WONDERWARE: competitors, like Ross Systems, Wonderware, and Infinium may tout as superior. The market should expect SCT s remedial actions in that regard. The company also plans to shortly launch two new components, Customer Relationship Management (CRM) and Analytics. User Recommendations SCT s target market, process manufacturing companies in the $50 million - $1 billion-a-year revenue range, should certainly consider the company s latest product offering, both as an integrated bundle and on a component base, but

The Name and Ownership Change Roulette Wheel for Marcam Stops at SSA GlobalPart Three: Last-Ditch Effort by Invensys
Under Invensys, Marcam has seen things change frequently including reorganizations, management changes, strategy changes, and the loss of many employees with deep domain knowledge.

WONDERWARE: number of names including Wonderware , Invensys Production Solutions , Invensys Production Systems , Baan Process , and so on. Until SSA Global likely renames it under its banner, the name has now temporarily settled back to its starting point, Marcam. While discussing the new name with previous Marcam executives at the time several months ago, we learned that things appeared to be slowly moving in the right directions in other areas as well. Namely, in the fall of 2003, Marcam presented yet another refin

Invensys Production Solutions - Can Historic Strengths And The Protean Boost Overcome Its Liabilities?Part Two: Liabilities, Strategy, and User Recommendations
Invensys must communicate its successes and strategy to the marketplace, and must aggressively invest in customer satisfaction, marketing, and sales. IPS must convince customers and prospects that it is here to stay; while the functionally rich products are great advantages, many other considerations make some customers and prospects perceive these solutions a risk.

WONDERWARE: market. First Marcam, then Wonderware and then Baan , the newly named Invensys Production Solutions must remind its customers and the marketplace of its historic success and forget about so many years of financial pressures which dropped Marcam, an early Process ERP leader, into the leagues of the also runs of the late 90 s. Since the mid-90 s this business has been relatively invisible to the market (as seen by less than 100 new customers in last several years), and customers and the marketplace may

Baan might be showing us that miracles are still possible. Will in 2001 the market witness the textbook-case of turning around the previously badly mismanaged company?

WONDERWARE: decision to roll the Wonderware Protean and Prism process manufacturing products into Baan s offering, with integration to be completed in about a year (for more information, see Invensys Announces New Division - Baan Process ).
