A regional deli supply company upgrades its legacy ERP system, which includes much custom coding from RPG to PHP: "The core ERP system includes product processing, sales analysis, and financials.

Indirect proposition: Inside IBM UK software supremo's profit plan • The Register
Cloud startups like Dropbox pose a problem because they are viral in their sign-up and billing. This is what has given them a foot in the door at SMBs and the departments of big companies, and resulted in CIOs’ business-collaboration platforms becoming based on Dropbox before they know it. Also, some good insights into IBM go-to-market thinking around software.

Report: SMBs Buying Ultrabooks Through Retail Channels | The VAR Guy
21 percent of Ultrabooks purchased by midmarket companies were bought in big box retail stores such as Best Buy, in part because the purchasers could actually handle the product before plunking down the cash. Because Ultrabooks are touted as lightweight and highly portable, the ability to handle the merchandise gives retail channels have an advantage over online channels, where the greatest advantage is often a lower price.

Microsoft introduces Windows Server OS for small businesses
"If somebody can buy a $500 server, they're a little loathe to spend $500 for the server operating system that goes with it." Only available through OEM partners (to help drive server sales, I guess) and without all the software that comes with Windows Small Business Server. Looks like a good idea.

IBM to roll out $8-per-month hosted Lotus Wednesday
"An IBM Lotus executive said publicly in September that it would offer a Notes hosting service to cater to companies with between 1,000 and 10,000 employees, which IBM considers the midmarket. He said the offering would be priced between $8 and $18 per seat, per month, but did not offer more specifics." Good move for IBM.

"In my experience, SMB customer's perceive IBM as IBM, not the individual brands, be it hardware, software or services that make up the organisation. If there is confusion, or mixed messages, they will go to other vendors with clear and consistent messages and experiences."
