Analysts Comments
 “The impact of Oracle's descent into WMS is
  significant as the company gains a competitive
  advantage over traditional WMS vendors in two
  distinct areas -- integration and supply chain
  execution. The fact that Oracle can provide
  complete integration between its ERP, E-
  Business suite, and WMS products puts best-
  of-breed competitors at a severe
  disadvantage.”
 “Oracle has designed the solution as extremely
                    Currentanalysis.com, J.Jenkins. July 19, 2001
  flexible for the end user to modify.”
