From an interview in Computerworld with Harry Debes, CEO of Lawson Software:
Some SAP and Oracle accounts acquired Lawson for some of their divisions simply because they don’t want the incumbent vendor to dictate the future terms of business to them and for them to have all their apples in one basket. They want to keep their primary vendor honest.
We are the anti-SAP and the anti-Oracle.
Positioning Lawson Software as the anti-company just seems so…well, I guess the word is lightweight. Sorry, dude, hate to be mean, but that’s how I see it.
