Baan Seeking A New Foster Home -- A Déjà vu Or Not Quite? Part Three: Market Impact and User Recommendations
Baan's focus on discrete manufacturing has not been a close fit with Invensys' plant automation products that have been geared mostly to process industries. To

not technologically savvy  But, even that should not be necessarily bad, particularly if the vendor in case could use Baan technology straight away; also, merely maintaining existing Baan install base, even with a limited number of new accounts has lately been a proven tenet of success for a number of vendors (see Resurrection, Vitality And Perseverance Of Former ERP 'Goners' ). One should note that Baan was by no means the only major ERP vendor to succumb to market forces in 2000, given Gores Technology Group (GTG) acquired at a

Talent (Human Capital) Management and Sports? Sign Me Up, Please! - Part 2


Part 1 of this blog post introduced some mixed feelings and doubts that we might still have about the noble concepts of talent management and human capital management (HCM). This skepticism lingers in spite of the many indicators of the usefulness of these concepts in mitigating some imminent global workforce challenges, which were outlined in Part 1. Accommodating "Generation Y" Let us not

One group that has been receiving a lot of attention is the so-called Generation Y : the group mostly in their 20s that has recently entered or is about to enter the workforce. These dudes and dudettes haven’t just adopted the use of the Internet – they have grown up with it, and they rely (live and breathe) on it .

The cost, time and effort to upgrade SAP to newer version continue to be a concern to some users too. The perception that SAP is still the most cumbersome and expensive product to deploy remains indelible in many minds, despite an increasing number of flawless SAP implementations.

PeopleSoft Remains Rock-Hard And Economy Proof


PeopleSoft again exceeded Wall Street estimates in another stellar quarterly performance, with more than 100 new customers and with more than half the deals for multiple suites or products. Will the company bear well the brunt of becoming the new market darling, which inevitably brings increased scrutiny by many?

The benefit of being a market darling bears the pressure of too harsh punishment when things start going wrong. SAP , Oracle and Siebel will also be much more alert and will bide their time to lambaste PeopleSoft, instead of letting it grow unnoticed in their back yard while they are busy bickering amongst themselves. These vendors can also tout deeper and broader functionality in some areas, e.g. trade exchanges. PeopleSoft also has Read More

MAPICS Moving On Pragmatically Part 4: Competition and User Recommendations


Production management remains MAPICS’ strongest spot, and, therefore, it has often been implemented only in manufacturing divisions of large global organizations that use a Tier 1 ERP product for corporate financials and/or HR applications. Therefore, executing the ambitious initiatives with its modest albeit solid resources compared to the above competitors will be a notable challenge.

While they do, service may drop below MAPICS' stringent standards because the Read More

Subtle (or Not-so-subtle) Nuances of Microsoft .NET Enablement


The Microsoft .NET strategy continues to confuse many, due to the lack of understanding of the technology. Indeed, because of the massive marketing campaign undertaken by Microsoft, many vendors have adopted a "too liberal" approach to marketing .NET Framework-based initiatives.

Scala and Microsoft Become (Not So) Strange CRM Bedfellows Part Two: Market Impact Continued


Microsoft's foray into the CRM arena has not been a bed of roses, despite its indisputably large marketing muscle and R&D investment, its strong channel, traditionally attractive pricing policies, and the aura and experience within the market segment. Microsoft CRM remains both a threat and an opportunity for the most nimble mid-market CRM vendors. Microsoft’s entry with CRM evangelism through an array of seminars nationwide has bolstered the market’s awareness of the need for CRM applications.

Baan Seeking A New Foster Home -- A Déjà vu Or Not Quite?
