Also was man durch die Börse so alles lernt. Alleine dafür ist´s total geil.
Die Kooperation mit ARIBA und IBM ist sicherlich eine sichere Planung. Die Ariba Software ist schweinegeil. Offene Schittstellen, modularer Aufbau. Aber in BRD geht die Story erst richtig los. Auf der Cebit hat mir ein Mitarbeiter vom Europa-Aufbau berichtet. Das sieht mit der Software sehr gut aus. Aber beachte. Viele Unternehmen setzen SAP R3, die Anbindung halten Sie deshalb mit SAP3.com für besser. Da hat SAP die Nase vorn. ARIBA, Commerce One etc. bieten die SAP Schnittstelle zwar, aber die Entscheidung wegen der Vereinheitlichung fällt dann oft auf SAP.
Welcher Wert der beste ist ist schwer. Aber I2 ist stark herunter. Steht auf STRONG BUY und sicher eins der Schlüsselunternehmen in den nächsten Jahren bei der Errichtung von "digitalen Marktplätzen b2b".
Und digitale Marktplätze sind die Story in den nächsten Jahren.
War interessant, ich hoffe ich konnt dir ein bissel helfen. Ich bin ARIBA Fan und würde die Kaufen, weil ich die Software von der Anwenderseite aus kenne, aber die Kooperation ARIBA, I2 und IBM bringt nen ganz ganz DICKEN im Geschäft. Commerce One ist sehr stark auf ein paar grosse in den Staaten orientiert und könnte den Europazug verlieren.
