You cannot measure the effectiveness of a company's strategies within the context of its own industry while ignoring the interests and impact upon the markets it serves. Doing so is tantamount to arguing who is the best player on a losing team, or debating the color scheme of a restaurant that doesn't have any patrons - and yes I am a fan of Chef Gordon Ramsay's Kitchen Nightmares. With 85% of all e-procurement/supply chain initiatives failing to achieve the expected results, the software industry is now at a crossroads. Today's show will focus on these market realities that often escape the traditional analyst reports which are usually confined to the narrow scope of industry speak. Joining me today is Mickey North Rizza, a Research Director from AMR Research who will discuss the practical and real-world impact associated with her recent coverage of the Emptoris-Click Commerce acquisition.
