Scala and Microsoft Become (Not So) Strange CRM Bedfellows


The Scala and Microsoft alliance in the CRM arena has merits of mutual benefits, particularly in the short to medium term, but due to vacillating motives of the participants that compete in the other enterprise applications fields, will it last? For the time being, Microsoft will likely be content to help Scala attack or keep the satellite divisions of its bigger competitors, particularly those of their common rival - SAP.

Assessing Deltek’s Ongoing Transformation


Conventional wisdom would imply that a software company that changes its owners and CEO in the same year might be in some kind of trouble or facing stormy waters.

Part 1 of this series began the analysis of the recent merger of Progress Software Corporation (NASDAQ: PRGS) and Savvion Inc. Progress has this way made a large leap into the business process management (BPM) space, from where it had been notably absent.

Progress Software Revs Up to Higher RPM via Savvion - Part 1


Late 2009 and early 2010 were characterized by a number of mergers and acquisitions (M@As) in the vibrant and buoyant business process management (BPM) space. The merger of Progress Software Corp.
