As enterprises make the shift to a service based and project based world, project based solutions are the only applications category that enterprises can rely on to deliver on process automation, process improvement, and innovation for this new world of work. Expect more in this category and more from vendors such as: Agresso, Augeo, BST Global, CMiC, Deltek, Epicor, Lawson, Maconomy, Meridian Systems, Microsoft Dynamics, Oracle, Primavera, Sage, SAP, Tenrox
