J.D. Edwards Reaches $1B Milestone In Another Losing Year


On December 4, J.D. Edwards & Company announced its return to profitability in Q4 2000, a sign the market may be buying into its Internet collaboration approach. However, 2000 remains a more bitter than sweet year for the company owing to the posted loss and staff departures earlier on.

Do You Want Your Apps to Talk Back to You (as a Chatterbox)? - Part 1


Let me start this blog series with one disclaimer: I am not an early adopter and I do not easily fall for any vendor’s slick marketing. At a recent large user conference, a vendor’s staffer asked me why I wasn’t already using an iPad tablet computer. That question cracked me up, since I still use an Apple’s discontinued iBook notebook (besides the fact that I might only

BPM Weaves Data And Processes Together For Real-time Revenues


Linking data to process is the realm of business process management (BPM). BPM's focus on process dramatically reduces the amount of data that needs to be moved, and thereby reduces both the initial cost and ongoing maintenance cost of application integration.

Oracle Makes A U-Turn At The 'All Things To All People' Exit


Oracle has been trying hard for some time to find a magic formula to revive its declining applications revenue.

Open letter to companies planning on using Social CRM


If you have decided to use social customer relationship management (SCRM) to sell your products or services, you should be ready to adapt to what your customers consider SCRM to be, not vice versa.

Part 1 of this blog series talked about my attendance of Dreamforce 2010, salesforce.com’s annual user conference, which has over the past several years become a highly anticipated and entertaining end-of-the-year fixture for enterprise applications market observers.

Will Glovia Glow Again Through Its Hub And VARs? Part 2: Challenges and User Recommendations


While the Fujitsu/Glovia relationship has worked well in Japan, a difficult market for many other ERP vendors to penetrate, it may prove to be quite a different case in other markets. Further, until recently, Glovia’s middle and top management team had long been in a state of flux and often poached by recently higher-flying competitors in the markets it attempts to regain. Further, one cannot help feeling that Glovia’s knowledge of its target market has always been deeper than its market visibility and share.

Nonetheless, the company has managed to maintain its existing customers' satisfaction level while successfully re-inventing Read More
