Book Description
Since the Yankee Group began following the Web integration space several years ago, we have been saying that this market would develop and grow rapidly until it would no longer support all participants equally. We believe that this stage of market maturity is upon us, and that 2000/2001 are the years when winners will pull ahead of the competition and the also-rans will either reinvent themselves or be acquired. Supply and demand is driving this sea change in the marketplace, as described in Exhibit 1. On the demand side, users are moderating the growth rate of their demand, they prefer to rent instead of buy, and they are demanding comprehensive (end-to-end) solutions. Meanwhile, on the supply side, core tasks are becoming templatized, capital requirements are increasing exponentially, service consistency problems are emerging, and the increase in competitors is creating too many brands in the marketplace for users to efficiently shop the market. Perhaps most importantly, the industry has not solved its most fundamental growth constraint-labor-and the shortage of capable personnel is rapidly becoming a war for talent that only the strongest firms will survive. Furthermore, public and private capital markets have almost completely dried up. This Report will describe the market dynamics, profile the changes that will occur in the competitive landscape, and help users wade through the plethora of competing brands. In this phase of the market, bigger is better. The Web integration business now requires major capital investments to build reliable, scalable infrastructures. Projects now demand large amounts of resources-people, capital, money, and knowledge.
