Dennis Howlett at AccManPro has really blasted the MS Dynamics strategy – Three men in a boat – quote:
“In my opinion M$ business apps strategy in the UK is crap and effectively wrecked its market position. I don’t believe M$ can be considered a trusted *UK* business apps provider.
In short, they’ve taken the market ‘best’ app Navision – with its highly effective but proprietary C/Side technology, Axapta, the very low selling, Oracle DB preferred but .NET compliant app and Great Plains, the M$ smoke and mirrors app par excellence (for the UK), with no real understanding of ‘business.’ And effectively nuked the lot by developing to .NET but with GP style functionality.”
So does MS have a future in the ERP industry, or might they lose the plot and sell it off, as my Syspro colleague once said.
