A Traditional "Local Touch" Leader Espouses a More Global Vision


Rather than pursuing the usual route and writing our opinions and analyses of major market trends and then giving the pertinent vendors a chance for a factual review and feedback, we’ve done the opposite, and have asked different vendors about their opinions and their approaches to market trends. Sage is the most recent vendor to join this discussion.

Facing A Selection? Try A Knowledge-Based Matchmaker Part 4: User Recommendations


This tutorial identifies the significance of researching technology vendors to both buyers and vendors/VARs. Buyers require research to determine the short list and vendors/VARs can use research to assess the viability of opportunities before committing time and money to a sales effort. Since a 'one-size-fits-all' product is still not a viable solution for most clients, the ability of technology products to meet clients' needs depends on client requirements. The Catch 22 for both buyers and vendors/VARs is to pinpoint the right match in this ongoing 'dating game'.

J.D. Edwards - A Collaboration Thought Leader Or A Disguised ERP Follower? Part 1: About J.D. Edwards


Like most of its peers, J.D. Edwards is hoping to rebound by focusing on Internet collaboration and extended-ERP applications. The company has also differentiated itself from competitors by embedding Enterprise Application Integration (EAI) into its OneWorld product. While J.D.

However, we also believe that managing this large application portfolio, much of which involves partnering or extensive integration and customization, will be cumbersome. Part 1 presents an overview
