Six months after announcing its partnership with IBM, Industri-Matematik posted positive license growth in its third fiscal quarter ended January 31, 2000 but

y2k bike  they diverted funds to Y2K remediation. Its long reliance on Oracle's sales channel left IMI unable to effectively win business on its own. The rise in license revenues is a sign of hope, but does not indicate a return to long term growth for IMI.

IMI suffers from a lack of visibility outside Europe, although it derives over Read More...

Merger Mania At Its Extremes
Other than for the peculiarity of a ‘love triangle’, the merger of SynQuest, Viwlocity and Tilion might be a harbinger of SCEM’s annexation by the realm of SCM,

A CFO's Guide For Managing IT
In the post Y2K era, many companies have turned to the CFO to oversee the IT function with the CIO or head of IT reporting to the CFO. IT may look

y2k bike  because of a non-event. Y2K didn't really happen, at least in sense of the disaster that was predicted. IT did its job. For corporate boards and executives not really comfortable with technology in the first place, the Y2K non-event has had the practical consequence of moving IT activities from a headline to a footnote on the corporate report. As a result IT, which had gained a seat at the Executive Committee during the Internet/Y2K bubble, started to be relegated back to a staff function. Often, in all Read More...

Other factors, such as competitive pressures from ERP vendors with like SAP (APO) and Oracle are bound to intensify over the next few years. Some sales execution problems experienced in the first half of 1999 are also to blame for the decline. These problems were highlighted by Sidhu after i2's second quarter and stemmed from sales personnel being unable to sell Read More...
Windows 2000 Releases to Manufacturing - Finally
Microsoft Corp. said Wednesday it finished work on its long-awaited Windows 2000 operating system (a/k/a Win2K), wrapping up a long and painful development

y2k bike  However, because of recent Y2K efforts, a number of IS/IT managers (in banks, for example) want to take a brief break from pushing their companies into system-wide upgrades. The Win2K upgrade is characterized by some as much more than your typical upgrade - a company's enterprise-wide network structure would probably have to be altered. The proliferation of yeah-it's-expensive-but-you'll-eventually-get-your-money's-worth articles also highlights the apparent need to sell the market on the benefits. Read More...
Evaluating Enterprise Software - Business Process or Feature/Function-Based Approach? All the above, Perhaps?
Owing to learning from the past experiences and to the help of specialized selection service providers, selecting an enterprise package has to a degree, become

Technology had not been upgraded; software processes had continually been held together with Band-Aids and patches. With the potential, but unrealized, repercussions of Y2K, the mentality was to replace, not rewrite. Under this scenario and the above assumptions, looking at software from a business process perspective can make a lot of sense. Your current software environment is untenable, indefensible, and Read More...

Software Selection: A Third Alternative Part Two: Seller's Perspective and the Third Alternative
Failed projects do not bode well for the vendor. It can cause their sales cycle costs only to rise even more and their reputation to suffer or, at least, become

Y2K changed this paradigm into a replace, not rewrite, mentality. Accordingly, evaluating and selecting software has become a more common occurrence for IT and user departments. The common focus that both buyers and sellers share in this process, is to do it as confidently and efficiently as possible. The third alternative for selecting Read More...
Is There a Magic Pill for Web Performance Problems?
The growth of sites and users on the Internet is beginning to create concerns about performance and the effects of any performance problems on E-commerce.

y2k bike  We predict that once Y2K is no longer the permanent technology news item, Internet performance will take its place. With more companies looking to use rich media and streaming technologies, either within their websites or within their ads, performance will become an increasingly important issue especially to entertainment and shopping sites. This will add impetus to businesses and venture capitalists to invest in fundamentally different approaches to reducing delay. One approach that is available to Read More...
IMI Sees Red In Dawn Of Fiscal 2001

Fourth Shift Tightens Belt To Weather The Drought
Fourth Shift has been marking time. While Q3 2000 was almost breakeven due to a rigid cost curbing exercise, the unnerving fact is the 24% license revenue

The improvement over the last quarter is merely attributable to a well-exercised rigid cost curbing exercise; the picture becomes more depressing when the comparison is made to a year ago. The license revenue declined a hefty 24%, while the service and support revenue dropped 5% (See Figure 1). However, while it is unnerving that the revenue pipeline seems to be drying up, the company has been managing to curb cash Read More...
Catalyst International to Tread Water With SAP Through 2000
While Catalyst should be congratulated for improving profitability, the Wall Street and user communities were clearly expecting to see more revenue from its

y2k bike  of 1999 due to Y2K), it clearly was less than Catalyst originally expected. Catalyst faces a Herculean task in educating SAP's sales force about its WMS products, which is critical for enabling them to sell them efficiently without placing an unmanageable burden on Catalyst.
