baan thai  SSA Global also bought Baan about a year ago. Before we delve deeper into the merger's strengths and weaknesses, let us revisit what SSA Global hereby obtains.

DeltaValve Deploys Infor PLM Discrete


Infor today announced that DeltaValve has implemented Infor PLM Discrete, adding to DeltaValve's existing deployment of Infor SyteLine ERP system.  In the discrete product lifecycle management space (PLM) space, Infor is not necessarily a best-of-breed stand-alone solution.
