Increasing Application Platforming Opportunities Amidst Rise Of New Technologies
Dale Vile points to a recent online research study conducted in January 2006 involving almost 6000 IT Managers and other IT Professionals reporting that a lot of organisations out there either going through or planning upgrade and/or consolidation activity, which will naturally lead to them reviewing their platform requirements. Even if they are not upgrading or consolidating, many are realizing that any platform installed more than five or six years ago is probably underperforming significantly by today’s standards. The volume - one in every four larger enterprises is looking at a packaged application platform switch or upgrade during 2006. He points out that larger organisations across the market were frantically implementing ERP and CRM applications in the second half of the 90s invested heavily in Sun, HP boxes while rolling out SAP, Oracle and Siebel applications. The software vendors are also luring their customers into upgrading to the latest releases, with more intuitive user interfaces, mobile enablement, integrated business intelligence, and all kinds of other goodies. This is quite a significant chunk and good for the industry on the whole.
