I recently wrote about the plans/ impact of oracle’s consolidation schema. A Cnet columnist finds that shifting economics, industry consolidation and dwindling profits are forcing big software companies to build & market comprehensive product stacks. The idea is by offering a broad product set, software companies can maximize revenue from existing customers and maintain control over product development. Customers get "one throat to choke" for product support and better integration -long the bane of big companies attempting to assemble their IT departments from a hodgepodge of components. Broader adoption of industry standards, such as Web services protocols, is making product integration easier. In a way, customers are forcing the creation of stacks. Many corporations are seeking to upgrade their systems around a services-oriented architecture, or SOA, a modular software design that promises to make business applications easier to write and maintain.Dennis Howett points to Jeff Nolan’s post about how application vendor strategies are changing to reflect the new realities of the Internet economy and Dan Farber’s dissection of Jeff’s argument. Dennis highlights that traditional analysts/media can never provide the same effect that Jeff Nolan’s & Dan Farber’s is creating. No doubt that in the fast changing enterprise application space, bloggers are certainly creating good impact.
