Software Giants Make Courting A Small Guy Their "Business One" Priority


As the battle for the mid-market intensifies, each Tier 1 vendor is exhibiting its bag of tricks for small-to-medium enterprises. While PeopleSoft is refining its fixed-price & time proposition to the upper-end of the mid-market, SAP is trying a twofold strategy of promulgating its mySAP All-in-One similar offering for the higher-end of the mid-market, while offering SAP Business One product to appeal to complexity-adverse smaller enterprises.

Software Giants Make Courting A Small Guy Their "Business One" Priority Part Three: Market Impact Continued


Trying to sell dumbed-down versions of mySAP Business Suite, Oracle E-Business Suite, without a serious re-engineering of these products, has not worked for the lower-end of the market.

High Availability in Workload Automation


When designing a software system, the possibility of long-term downtime—due to hardware, operating system, or software failure—often gets neglected.
