What Can Manufacturers Do in a Tough Economy? - Part II


Part I of this blog series outlined the first three suggested "winning strategies" by JDA Software Group Inc. that manufacturers (especially of consumer goods) could instantly deploy to drive up margins and protect shareholder value in the current economic climate (malaise). I also took the liberty of mapping, with the help of some current and former employees of JDA Software and former

PROACTIS: The Best-kept Secret in Indirect Spend Management? - Part 2


Part 1 of this blog series introduced PROACTIS, a UK- and US-based specialist vendor of spend control and e-procurement solutions with accredited partners worldwide. I had the chance to meet the company during my attendance of UNIT4’s UK user event in early 2010, where PROACTIS was an exhibiting partner.

Breathing Open Air at NetSuite


It has been almost two years since NetSuite Inc. (NYSE: N) went public and my analysis of that blockbuster initial public offering (IPO) event. Needless to say, much has happened at the bullish software company since.   NetSuite positions itself as “a leading vendor of on-demand (or cloud computing) integrated business management software suites for midsized

Those businesses, whose revenue is primarily derived from Read More

Part 1 of this blog series started with me lamenting my inability to attend the Deltek Insight 2010 conference. However, I recently had an in-depth post-event recap instead with Deltek’s in-the-know staff members. What then followed in Part 1 were descriptions of the major developments that transpired at Deltek Insight 2010 in terms of already released products and those
