Who rules the EC Landscape?

By a_rand ·
Ok, here's a tough one (sorta). I'm a senior consultant in an EC team, with one of the big 5, and I believe I know my ECommerce pretty good.

I know there's major players like Intelisys, Ariba, ProcureNet, CommerceOne, etc.., on the buy-side (or enterprise procurement). Then there is BroadVisiion, Interworld, OpenMarket, IBM, Netscape, etc., on the sell-side. Going a little deeper we start getting into middleware vendors or specialty vendors taht add their technology on top of the EC engine like Ephipany (OLAP tool), Taxware (tax), Vignette (author management), Acquity (CRM and web-based call-center management), etc.., and tons more.

I could keep going into more depth, but the real question is, has anyone come across a source (website, book or publication, analysts' report, white paper, etc.,) that keeps track of all the major players in the various levels of the EC Landscape.

As much as I know, there is always a new "gotta know it" vendor/product that I hear about. any thoughts, suggestions, comm

I have started using http://internetproductwatch.com to keep me in the loop about new products and give me a brief description about the product.

So far it has not been that bad. It is all encompassing and only target the E-Commerce and other net areas (extra, intra,…)

try,
http://www.ecommercetimes.com/

I also use www.infoworld.com and www.personalization.com.

I haven't found any one spot that covers all the various packages. It would be helpful but I don't how any site could staff a team to make the content good enough to be of any real use. The only people who know the landscape really well seem to be either the consultants or the software vendors, and in my (humble) experience the software vendors aren't upfront with their competition and the various consulting houses have a vested interest in selling the product that their current staff already knows.

I think that you have an open question, but a good one. I found that a variety of places seem to serve my interests - including GartnerGroup, Forrester Research and even Ernst&Young, who provide quite a breadth of knowledge. These are expensive and I have the luxury of a large company account, but on my own, I use the Wall Street Journal, a mag called FastCompany, and even the Harvard Business Review. I am looking at this from a strategic viewpoint thus far. For technical resources, I use the websites that others have listed, and include things such Microsoft's site, IBM's site and anywhere else I can find case studies. A lot of info is out there, but you just have to filter it to what suits you best.

I get a lot of info from www.webharbor.com and www.erpworld.com

Webharbor is focused on the ASP industry, but most of the players in EC are also in the ASP space. ERPWorld has some research tools and some good articles on the ERP industry as well as B2B, CRM, and others. The site has a restricted section for clients......$950/yr. I have only accessed the public stuff.
