Comparison of ERP and CRM Markets' Life cycle Snapshots


Today's enterprise applications are required as a matter of course to address more than the processes taking place within the walls of an enterprise. Almost all traditional ERP vendors (small and big alike) had to experience a wake-up call and have long been trying to expand their product offering in tune with the ever-changing trends and requirements of the new collaborative economy. The need for providing a full, comprehensive CRM suite rather than an individual solution or a bundle of point solutions for each distinct CRM area remains firm, and will urge further market consolidation.

product life cycle scm  the customer life cycle, product life cycle, and so on, to name but a few, will be a big determinant of losers and winners. Proof of the above might be the fact that the traditional large ERP providers like SAP , PeopleSoft and Oracle can claim bigger CRM-related revenues than every pure-CRM vendor except for Siebel that still clings to its CRM leadership position. Therefore, even though there are some indications of an economic recovery, the recovery of many beleaguered CRM vendors in a still overcrowded Read More

From Idea to Market-ready Product in Record Time


The odds against successful product innovation are long. New products need to win over consumers and convince retailers—a challenging task for many reasons, including saturated markets, a growing variety of products and brands, and shorter product life cycles. To shorten time to market, companies need to integrate all development-related areas, within a single sphere of visibility and influence.

Every year, the consumer products industry enters 25,000 to 30,000 new products in the race to win customer favor. More than 60% of these fail, according to the results of a study by the German market research institute Gesellschaft fr Konsumforschung. Why? Companies have less and less time to conquer the market and achieve a return on their investment because ideas are copied quickly and me-too products a Read More

New Product Development and Introduction (NPDI)


New product development and introduction (NPDI) is probably the most important process for many companies, but also one of the least understood. While NPDI is responsible for revenues, few companies assign an owner for the whole process. Instead, it is usually driven through a series of functional “silos,” causing delay—and the loss of the original market requirements.

As a result, companies are increasingly dependent on revenues from new products to drive their top lines each year. A recent study by Deloitte showed that, for the companies most dependent upon new products, the proportion of their revenue derived from these products will increase from around one third to nearly a half over the next three years (see Figure 1). New Products = New Revenue Streams Now + 3 years Top Quartile 36% 45% Median 15% Read More

Service Lifecycle Management - Tapping into the Value of the Product Aftermarket


Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) addresses the full lifecycle of a product. The focus of most of the current PLM solutions, however, does not make the most of the value available from servicing products after they have been sold. Service Lifecycle Management (SLM) promises valuable business benefits after a product has been shipped to the customer, tapping into the value of the product aftermarket.

product life cycle scm  the Value of the Product Aftermarket What is Service Lifecycle Management? Service Lifecycle Management (SLM) is a business initiative focused on servicing a company''s products, and the customers that bought them, after the product has been sold. Simply put, SLM focuses on making more money from the product after the initial sale.
