Sage rumoured to be in acquisition talks with IBM and SAP

6th July 2011

Computing Magazine/ Computing.co.uk report an intriguing development about Sage suggesting they are in talks with IBM and SAP about becoming a part of their respective businesses.

If correct, what does this mean for the typical Sage software-using business? A big boost in supplier confidence or uncertainty about the future of the software they’re running? Reassurance of big brand name kudos or concern about becoming an even smaller fish in an even bigger pond?

And what about those companies who are at the point of ordering Sage software? Will the software they have chosen to commit hard-earned capital to be the same software they find themselves running in 2 years time; or will the inevitable “corporate streamlining” result in a forced move to the new owners own applications?

Given the benefits of working with independent software houses, like Merlin Business Software, what benefits could Sage software users enjoy?

Merlin has already been selected to supersede Sage solutions in over 70 businesses to date, replacing Line 50, Line 100, Line 500 and Sage Enterprise software solutions. Unlike Sage, Merlin has just one version of its software, meaning that smaller companies use the same sophisticated software tools as perhaps their larger competitors expect of their software. With its industry-specific approach to software, Merlin does not purport to be a “jack of all trades”; moreover Merlin’s wholesale, distribution and manufacturing customers enjoy a software solution designed just for them.
