Deltek's Second Bite at the IPO Cherry (Part I)
In the last decade or so of covering the enterprise applications market, I've witnessed so many products and vendors disappearing and reappearing under a

i part 9  repositioning time in 2003.  I think the apex was when Deltek's then enlightened marketing engine churned out such cheeky gems as challenging the likes of the Big 3 ERP leaders at the time, by taking the entire back page of the June 6, 2003 Wall Street Journal business section with a signed “come to us” letter authored by Ken deLaski, the former Deltek CEO and President. The Part II of this topic will thus analyze the recent times at Deltek and whether the company has lately evolved and separated Read More...

Epicor 9: Delivering What Oracle and Others Are Yet to Achieve? - Part 1
Undoubtedly, the recent major event at Epicor Software (despite concurrent unfortunate occasional and distracting shareholder power struggles, takeover bids

This is a division within Epicor (contributing to about 30 percent of the company’s revenues), and its product portfolio is on a slightly longer-term development track to convergence.

To that end, Microsoft has included the monitoring and analytic functionality within Microsoft Office SharePoint Server (MOSS) 2007 , while seriously backpedaling on (if not completely unplugging) the development of its nascent financial planning and consolidation application in PPS. This event could be good news for Epicor, as Epicor Portal Read More...
BigMachines: Getting Bigger and Better - Part I
I recently attended Gartner’s CRM Summit in Scottsdale, Arizona (US). During the conference, I bumped into several old acquaintances who are working for

i part 9  prior commitments. At least I had the chance for an in-person update briefing during a lunch break at the CRM Summit, and I'll go into the latest developments at BigMachines over the last 12 months or so. But before analyzing these events at BigMachines, let me explain why such CRM-oriented solutions are needed at all. While TEC’s previous article “The Complexities of Quote-to-order and Possible Solutions”  goes to great lengths to explain the typical conundrums of selling  mass customized Read More...

Part 1 of this blog series outlined Epicor 9 (a.k.a., Epicor ERP [evaluate this product]), Epicor Software’s next-generation converged product suite. A similar

In the meantime, I expect that Epicor’s prospective or existing customers will have to perform a standard Epicor Service Connect  integration between Epicor Procurement and Epicor 9. Both the Procurement and Epicor 9 products already use Epicor Service Connect for other integrations. Epicor Service Connect is an application (part of the Epicor Productivity Pyramid  mentioned in Part 1 ) that orchestrates processes (workflows) at a more macro level, usually between applications (instead of Read More...

SAP : We need to separate out DBAs vs. database modelers. DBAs traditionally spend a ton of time tuning the d Read More...

I was thus wondering what the buying behavior has lately been, i.e., what prospective customers value more: the traditional IFS Applications functionality, the latest technical gadgets, or both.

In fact, not only does on-premise CODA continue, but UNIT4 has been lately putting a lot more “oomph” behind the product in terms of a revamped Read More...
