Smaller Vendors Can Still Provide Relevant Business Systems Part One: Event Summary


If Relevant Business Systems deliberately wanted to maintain its astute enterprise system as one of the best-kept secrets in the A&D and government contracting manufacturing markets, it has certainly succeeded.

Rewrite or Wrap-Around Old Software? Part One: Event Summary


Product architecture is going to do much more than simply provide the technical functionality, the user interface (UI)/presentation, and the platform support.

Will Recent Acquisition Catalyze Catalyst’s Strategy? Part One: Event Summary


For years, Catalyst International was a leading public WMS/SCE vendor before missteps by its previous management team caused serious problems in strategy and execution. Over the past few years Catalyst's turnaround strategy has returned it to growth and profitability. As a result, it has recently been acquired by ComVest, a wealthy, private investment firm. This development may indicate private equity investors' renewed interest in this market and might validate the company's turnaround strategy that began in late 2001. Still, the question remains whether the anticipated infusion of capital from ComVest will enable Catalyst to become a consolidator and rejoin its mightier direct competitors in the industry's upper echelon.

Feds Warms Up to ERP Spending, but Will Contractors and Their ERP Vendors Comply? Part One: Event Summary and Market Impact


There has been noise in the US public sector about a strong federal (Feds) interest in ERP applications. This, coupled with the Feds customary huge purchasing appetite for goods and services ranging from consulting to purchasing military devices and components, building, many businesses that have previously competed only in the commercial sector are tempted to feed the Feds. However, the Feds' peculiar and idiosyncratic regulatory requirements provide high barriers to entry, and novice companies that are not already offering the functionality for the sector will likely not be able to tap the recent surge in Defense and other federal markets.
