SAP APO: Will it Fill the Gap?
Announced over two years ago, SAP's Advanced Planner and Optimizer (APO) is geared toward the supply chain management market, where it will compete head-to-head with established best-of-breed vendors like i2 and Manugistics.

Mainstream Enterprise Vendors Begin to Grasp Content ManagementPart Three: Challenges
To conduct collaborative processes, businesses need embedded intelligence, and business intelligence (BI) or analytics applications focused on structured data offer only a part of the total solution. In other words, businesses also need content management for the unstructured data and content, which can contain a majority of business information, given that many decisions makers collaborate via e-mail or voicemail, which are examples of vast unstructured info that currently resides outside of business processes and of the reach of ERP and BI systems.

Scala and Microsoft Become (Not So) Strange CRM Bedfellows
The Scala and Microsoft alliance in the CRM arena has merits of mutual benefits, particularly in the short to medium term, but due to vacillating motives of the participants that compete in the other enterprise applications fields, will it last?
