SSA: Evolving into systems integrator to survive

SSA's Portfolio strategy is to surround its core ERP products with best-of-breed 3rd party enterprise applications and provide system integration services and support around it. SSA will gradually transform itself into a systems integration provider, as opposed to a pure ERP vendor, within the next 3 years. By that time, we believe service & support revenue will contribute up to 80% of SSA's total revenues.

The major part of SSA's huge R&D investment has been squandered on resolving product instability and performance problems, instead of on development of new ERP extension components that would provide for new sales revenue. The combined effect of bad corporate viability, problems with the BPCS product, and SSA's lack of new extended ERP products, may convince some of its existing customers to replace its Read More

Analyzing MAPICS’ Further Steps After Frontstep

The former staunch IBM AS/400-based ERP supplier to mid-market manufacturing companies, MAPICS, has become quite a larger vendor and with a wider choice of products due to the recent acquisition of Frontstep and its entire product line, which included ERP, CRM, and SCM, on a single Microsoft .NET-based technology platform. However, as the customers from both camps have been uncertain of their provider's strategy, given that a bigger size brings about the need to rationalize multiple products within the same marketplace, after a few months long period of buried heads and brainstorming sessions, MAPICS has lately been engaged in explaining its rationale, as to set many customers' minds at ease.

Edwards demonstrated somewhat more galvanized strategy than the one it initiated and less successfully executed during the last year. With its renewed mid-enterprise focus and commitment to deliver customer-driven solutions, the company seems to be going back to its mid-market roots.
