Jon Reed's Introduction, February 2008: Looking back on my interview with Dave Bernard on SAP EAI technologies, I am struck by how today's EAI market is both fundamentally similar and fundamentally different.

An Historical View of the ERP Market
(and the Challenges SAP Faced with Its R/3 Product in the Late ‘90s).
Jon Reed Looks Back on His Landmark Interview with Bobby Cameron of Forrester

Jon Reed's new introduction, April 2008: In January of 1999, I had the opportunity to interview Bobby Cameron, Principal Analyst at Forrester, about SAP's position in the evolving ERP market. Things are different now, but in the mid-‘90s, Forrester really was the thought leader in the ERP marketplace in terms of analyzing trends, and also providing a cautionary tone towards some of the over-spending and over-hype that was occurring in the market at that time. Nowadays, there is no one analyst firm that has a corner on the vision for the market.
