Retail Market Dynamics for Software Vendors Part Two: Progress


ERP vendors are making their way into the retail market by bundling, acquiring point solutions or partnering strategically to embed retail-specific functions within their suites.

Business Suite 4 SAP HANA: The New Simplified SAP


TEC's principal BI analyst Jorge Garcia delves into SAP’s recent release of SAP Business Suite 4 SAP HANA (SAP S/4HANA), one of the most important releases in years for SAP. A totally new SAP ERP suite especially designed to take full advantage of HANA, S/4HANA exploits HANA’s high performance and real-time capabilities, and promises to deliver tangible business and technical simplification, as well as a radical new design and user experience.

But, existing and new customers should Read More
