Another construction crew has shown up in the ongoing project to build the last mile of finance: SAP. Well, they were actually on the project site before, but they seem to be bringing in additional heavy equipment. A couple of days ago it was announced that SAP is acquiring disclosure management solutions from cundus AG. It seems that SAP is doing this to better compete with Oracle's and IBM's offerings to the market.
So we have IBM, Oracle, and SAP in the game. These three companies can move some dirt! I wonder where the middle market software vendors are. It will be interesting to see who ends up succeeding and who ends up as road kill.
