The Name and Ownership Change Roulette Wheel for Marcam Stops at SSA GlobalPart Two: Marketing By Invensys
IPS was hoping that the early product vision and venerable reputation that Marcam has in the process manufacturing market for providing plant-centric ERP solutions might finally play well to capturing the marketing opportunity.
: mentioned earlier on, Invensys PMD still had many complementary products and technologies in its other product families that gave it credibility in the emerging operations management market, but Protean s production model strengths in costing and scheduling had yet to be integrated with these systems, a colossal (and seemingly never accomplished) feat. Consequently, IPS loss of momentum in ERP after the sale of Baan and a protracted neglect of Marcam has become all but irretrievable, while Protean s futu
Baan Seeking A New Foster Home -- A Déjà vu Or Not Quite?
Given Invensys' irrevocable decision to give up Baan for another adoption after all, one is to wonder whether this is the 'year 2000 revisited' or whether Baan and its customers should instead look forward to turning a new leaf.
: Systems . The revised PMD will thus retain the Wonderware MES (manufacturing execution systems) and plant automation division, the process manufacturing ERP products Protean and PRISM , and the enterprise asset management (EAM) product Avantis . Even after Invensys cut its humongous debt in half by the sale of non-core businesses, weakening trading conditions are causing it to further divest its holdings either partially or wholly in all other businesses beyond its Production Management and Rail Systems d
Invensys Production Solutions - Can Historic Strengths And The Protean Boost Overcome Its Liabilities?
Invensys has created a new group within its Production Management Division called Invensys Production Solutions. The group includes the PRISM and Protean process ERP products plus the resources of Invensys Validation Services group. While the unit should have much strength, it also has certain liabilities that must be addressed.
: its Production Management Division (PMD) called Invensys Production Solutions (IPS) ( www.invensysproductionsolutions.com ). The group will include the PRISM and Protean process ERP products plus the resources of Invensys Validation Services group ( www.vtc-usa.com ), a Montreal, Canada-based provider of regulatory compliance, validation, and consulting services encompassing the entire validation project life cycle and a range of validation services for the regulated supply chain. While the newly formed u
Invensys Production Solutions - Can Historic Strengths And The Protean Boost Overcome Its Liabilities?Part Two: Liabilities, Strategy, and User Recommendations
Invensys must communicate its successes and strategy to the marketplace, and must aggressively invest in customer satisfaction, marketing, and sales. IPS must convince customers and prospects that it is here to stay; while the functionally rich products are great advantages, many other considerations make some customers and prospects perceive these solutions a risk.

Baan Seeking A New Foster Home -- A Déjà vu Or Not Quite?Part Three: Market Impact and User Recommendations
Baan's focus on discrete manufacturing has not been a close fit with Invensys' plant automation products that have been geared mostly to process industries. To that end, Invensys has had a nightmarish job of trying to rationalize Baan and its process ERP counterparts, Protean and PRISM, development - strategy abandonment has been a catchphrase of late. Thus, while the savvy buyer will obtain much improved technology and large customer base in need for new products, the overriding problem has been the lingering negative sentiment around the company, as viability of the vendor is of utmost importance in the enterprise applications space.
: new setup within Invensys PMD, well over 80% of revenues will now likely come from process industries, since, in conjunction with solutions provided by sister Invensys companies such as Wonderware and Avantis , Invensys Production Solutions also provides a broad set of capabilities for the process sector. Thus, Baan will have then been singled out as the discrete manufacturing black sheep in the family, causing Invensys to review the carrying value of its investment in Baan, and to move it into its wind
The Name and Ownership Change Roulette Wheel for Marcam Stops at SSA GlobalPart One: Event Summary
Sometimes, the enterprise applications market can produce many strange twists and turns, in addition to being tough for all and even cruel to some. The tale of Marcam, Baan, and SSA Global, whose paths have crossed, parted, and crossed once again since the early 2000s, might be an object case.
