ERP Graveyard

Ned Lilly, the main man behind the quasi-open source OpenMFG ERP system, has started a blog, ERP Graveyard, in which he tracks ERP vendor mergers and acquisitions. The thought behind it, of course, is that if you go with open source, you don't have to worry as much about your vendor going out of business.

What's best, however, is that Ned has put together a map of ERP vendor acquisitions over the past several years. I took a quick look and it appears complete.

Ned calls it the ERP Graveyard Scorecard, which is a mixed metaphor, but you get the point.
