Software Test Tools

Tools exist to support software testing at all stages of a project. Some vendors offer an integrated suite that will support testing and development throughout a project's life, from gathering requirements to supporting the live system. Some vendors concentrate on a single part of that life cycle. The software test tools knowledge base provides functional criteria you might expect from a testing tool, the infrastructure that supports the tool, and an idea of the market position of the vendor.

Working with Smaller ERP Vendors: The Pros and the Cons


During briefings with small ERP vendors, I often hear the argument that they are more flexible and can better respond to their customers’ needs than larger vendors. The ultimate example: “You can even talk to the CEO if you need to.” But would you want to? Bypassing the usual workflows and calling the CEO (this actually really happens) may not be a recipe for the best technical support ever.

The success of the implementation depends on many factors (e.g., project management, solution complexity, etc.), but providing Read More

JDA Portfolio: For the Retail Industry Part Six: ERP Vendors and User Recommendations


ERP vendors promise products linking to financial and manufacturing systems (which logically, is currently the vendor's own system) and include collaborative SRM and PLM capabilities and links to CRM systems.

When an organization decides to improve its HR, payroll, and talent management processes and enters the market for a new people management solution, the discovery phase can be overwhelming. Not all solutions and vendors are the same, and uncovering the pros and cons to make an informed decision may be more difficult than the decision itself.

An Amateur Software Buyer’s Guide to Outplaying Vendors


Whether it is an enterprise resource planning (ERP), a customer relationship management (CRM), or any other system, acquisition and deployment of enterprise class software is usually a significant move for a company of any size and industry. It leads to disruption of the company’s business activities, so much so that hardly any employee is left unaffected during such a major project.

So if they don’t know what software Read More

Retail Market Dynamics for Software Vendors Part Two: Progress


ERP vendors are making their way into the retail market by bundling, acquiring point solutions or partnering strategically to embed retail-specific functions within their suites. Like in all other enterprise applications markets, eventually, albeit not any time soon, the retail market too will come to a showdown between the pure retail vendors and the enterprise application vendors (e.g., Oracle, SAP, Lawson, PeopleSoft, SSA Global, Geac, Intentia, etc.), which have been striving to natively embed more retail-specific capability into their products.

For every product under its brand umbrella, there are several product attributes, including definitions, specifications (product weights, measurements, calorie counts, etc.), images, marketing messages, and prices.

To make things worse, companies may have hundreds or thousands of products and a number of individuals may maintain each bit of product information, so the Read More

Enterprise Applications Vendors Going Viral and Social: Another Take

What Large-scale HCM Software Solutions Are Missing: Enter HCM Niche Vendors


Human capital management (HCM) solutions are relatively recent in the software for business market. Until recent years, most HCM vendors were more or less niche vendors.

ERP Vendors Intrude on SCE/WMS Safe Haven


Within the warehouse management system (WMS) market, which is still the main breadwinning offering for most of the SCE vendors, most products are functionally on par with mere nuances in ease of configuration or industry focus to differentiate the winner. ERP vendors have taken advantage of this unfavorable perception for WMS specialists to in the very least shore up their huge install bases, if not compete for some "green field" WMS opportunities.

Small ERP Vendors Missing The ASP Boat
