Lawson Software-IPO and Several Acquisitions After Part Four: Strengths Continued


Lawson, contrary to many other players, seems to be compensating its narrow foothold with a strong vertical dimension. Lawson will continue to concentrate its internal sales efforts on its traditional vertical markets and to additionally rely on partners to address and develop for particular industry needs. Look for Lawson's opportunistic expansion into another service industry market and for its abstaining from manufacturing in the foreseeable future.

Conservation International Switches from Oracle to Agresso


UNIT4 is known for providing its software applications to a wide range of not-for-profit and non-governmental organizations, and a signed contract with one of the largest US-based environmental organization is another step in this direction. Being a global organization, Conservation International required a system capable of supporting all the nuances involved in operating a non

architectural  World ERP. First, Agresso''s architectural design easily and comparatively quickly accommodates the various types of changes that the organization faces on a regular basis. That specific approach—Business Living In Change (BLINC)—is common to all of UNIT4''s offerings. Second, Agresso supports important functionality—grant tracking and donor reporting—that was obviously missing from Oracle''s software. Third, Agresso has flexible and customizable workflow management capabilities. And, finally, Read More

MSF R2 Service Architecture


As Internet and IP technologies are increasing service expectations, the number of resources available to create, deploy, and manage new services have reduced. The result is that expectations for new services are outpacing the ability to deliver them. We explore the limitations of traditional voice service architecture, and propose a new architectural solution to address these shortcomings.

One Offering to Watch Unfold in 2012: UNIT4 Business Analytics Apps


For me, the third week of December 2011 was a week of revelations of sorts in the realm of enterprise applications. Amid all the IT punditry/buzzword talk throughout the year about cloud computing, analytics, mobility, social, and in-memory, there were two concrete announcements in mid-December from two vendors that gave me pause. Both vendor product announcements are still far away from their

architectural  action, and many concrete architectural details are yet to be unveiled. The briefing was also, well, too brief for us to flesh out many more details, other than the fact that the product is based on Java and runs on Microsoft SQL Server . Each application and subscribing user are assigned a database and OLAP cube instance to. Still, the vendor’s track record shows lots of delivery on its ambitious promises in the past, and I am happy to take a leap of faith. In any case, the touted design principles of Read More

Great Product: Too Bad The Architecture Doesn’t Fit

Bentley Extends Commitment to Siemens PLM Software


The 3D computed-aided design (CAD) world continues to be co-opetitive. Many of the situations where fierce competitors end up using each other’s tools in their competing products are circumstantial, i.e., those products were using tools supplied by a software company before it was acquired by a competitor. For example, the Parasolid 3D geometric modeling kernel was developed

In addition, this endorsement by Bentley should come as a consolation, given the ISO hurdles for JT and Dassault Systèmes’ recent decision to decouple the SolidWorks business logic from Parasolid and to continue with a dual kernel product strategy ( the Parasolid and the CATIA kernels ).
