Increasingly, Fortune 500 enterprises are turning to e-business software to enable real-time transactions and data exchange. This hot sector is crowded with software firms, each vying to peddle integrated suites for supply chain management, CRM, e-procurement, fulfillment and logistics. How can an enterprise IT manager decide which one to buy? The strongest contenders take a holistic approach, according to Yankee Group senior analyst Jon Derome. In this piece, the E-Commerce Times takes a closer look at three companies of different sizes and might that have chosen to follow that path: IBM, Siebel and BroadVision.

I'm sorry but I don't get the fact that Oracle pioneered the whole concept of a fully integrated e-biz suite, closely followed by SAP and Peoplesoft (yeah, let's face it, even if Siebel calls their many time excellent CRM products e-business applications, it can hardly be touted as a true suite). Why is only Oracle mentioned briefly at the end? Smells fishy!
