SoftBrands to Institute Fourth Shift for SAP Business One Manufacturing Work-Plan Part Three: Market Impact


SAP seems to have grasped that the key to success in the SMB market is brand awareness and an apt product, since SMBs are looking for support from incumbent vendors, with intimate knowledge of their vertical and business processes, ample local resources, and the commitment to support them both off- and on-site to achieve value over a long-term relationship. SAP partners' solutions have been leveraged and managed through SAP Global Solutions Network, so that partners do not have to reinvent the wheel, and even unnecessarily compete in the same industries.

While the higher end of ERP market has (surprisingly) experienced only limited merger & acquisition activity during 2000 (mainly seen in ERP losers been devoured by ERP outsiders), the mid-market has seen more significant intra-market activity.

Microsoft 'The Great' Poised To Conquer Mid-Market, Once and Again Part 2: Challenges and User Recommendations


Microsoft's reticence to comment on any timelines of product integration and operations mergers, to our belief, stems from their genuine inability to foresee it at this stage. Still, although the indications that the business will continue to be as usual are strong, Microsoft may eventually decide to streamline its diverse, likely redundant, product mix, staff, and channel. Once Microsoft figures it out and gets a much clearer picture, it should emerge as a mid-market leader making its competitors scramble to better its value proposition.

Solomon Stands the Test of Time Despite Changing Masters Part Three: Product Differentiators


Of all the MBS' products, Solomon is apparently the purest in terms of a standard Microsoft technology stack, and without any proprietary additions. Furthermore, its sharp focus solely on Microsoft technology from ground up, coined in ''the power of one'' motto (one OS platform - Windows XP/NT/2000, one database platform - MS SQL Server, one development environment - MS Visual Basic, etc.), also presents an attractive, risk-adverse option for penny-pinching mid-market customers. Solomon IV has consequently been very competitive in speed of implementation, feasibility of customization, total cost of ownership (TCO), and price/performance ratio.

mbs navision forum  Furthermore, as mentioned earlier, MBS Solomon offers several series or groups of integrated modules that address different business types and needs.

Of all the MBS' products, Solomon is apparently the Read More

Solomon Stands the Test of Time Despite Changing Masters


It appears that several of Microsoft Business Solutions (MBS) Solomon's truly differentiating traits, which could not have been easily or quickly replicated by its seemingly more robust brethren products within the MBS division, will have been a good enough reason for Microsoft to continue to bolster the product rather than to consider any other less popular options (e.g., stabilization and replacement) to offer to Solomon's loyal customer base and resellers, some of which will have even feared the possibility.
