Bruteforce Consolidation : Ominous Signals
Ephraim Schwartz writes that Salesforce.com would have us believe that his company will become a major platform for enterprise application integration. This is not going to happen and adds that while Oracle is building an impressive software portfolio, neither Oracle nor its CEO Larry Ellison has enough time or money to buy every single enterprise software vendor. We may be left with SAP NetWeaver as a business process platform; Oracle's boast that it can offer everything from accounting to fulfillment, logistics, and more; Salesforce.com's Web services platform for third-party components; Microsoft Dynamics; and possibly IBM's Workplace middleware, which offers everything but the applications.It will take many years for the market to figure out who's right and who's wrong.He rightly concludes, pure-play on demand solutions will gain only limited acceptance in the enterprise. SOA will become a popular internal solution but, along with the so-called extended enterprise that drives it, will never quite get off the ground.
