On September 20, Baan, an ERP vendor recently believed to be deceased, won its first new contract since being acquired by Invensys. The British Defence Aviation Repair Agency (DARA) has placed a large order for the complete Baan enterprise solution. Will the market witness Baan rising like a phoenix from the ashes?

SSA BAAN IV: strategies of preying on dissatisfied and apprehensive organizations where those doomed systems were implemented (For more information, see Baan Defectors - Is This Only Tip of an Iceberg? ). However, Invensys has recently made some more determined steps with a view to stem the tide of defecting customers and to possibly start winning new deals.

Q: Who Wants to Marry a Multi-Billionaire? A: Baan -- Foster Care for Its Orphans Needed As Well
Baan Co. interim chief executive Pierre Everaert said he could not rule out a takeover of the troubled Dutch business-management software group. We hereby provide a list of (un) usual suspects.

SSA BAAN IV: ERP only as a necessary evil lurking in the back office. They consider it largely irrelevant to the CRM business so that acquiring an ERP company would represent a distraction and a dilution of their value proposition. However, this attitude may change very soon, as SAP is on the quest of converting its defector-users currently using Siebel s CRM products to switch to its latest CRM offering that is coming of age (slowly but surely) and obsoletes the need for 3rd party integration. The same holds true

Baan Seeking A New Foster Home -- A Déjà vu Or Not Quite?Part Three: Market Impact and User Recommendations
Baan's focus on discrete manufacturing has not been a close fit with Invensys' plant automation products that have been geared mostly to process industries. To that end, Invensys has had a nightmarish job of trying to rationalize Baan and its process ERP counterparts, Protean and PRISM, development - strategy abandonment has been a catchphrase of late. Thus, while the savvy buyer will obtain much improved technology and large customer base in need for new products, the overriding problem has been the lingering negative sentiment around the company, as viability of the vendor is of utmost importance in the enterprise applications space.

It would even be spooky to see Baan acquired by its former brother in arms , although SSA GT s current bullish posture might bode well for Baan s future, regardless who the buyer happens to be.
