Does integrating an application with a client's Navision system, while corresponding with the client's highly overpaid, underknowledged, Navision consultants  count?

I'll assume it wasn't you ;-)

I used to work for a bunch of years with Oracle Applications.
Its a monstrosity of an ERP application.

Im not working with it any longer on a daily basis, however the client calls once in a while and needs stuff done.

I am into SAP. Slowing down a bit but still moving ahead.

I see they have Microsoft got many solutions: Great Plains,  Navision and Exapta. What is different to these solutiuons -- same strategy / target markets?

Great Plains (acquired by Microsoft) big in the US,
for medium sized company

Navision (recently acquired by Microsoft) big in the Europe,
for medium sized company

Axapta for larger company

They do have a road map for these 3 products to next 10-12 years

The idea is to merge these 3 product into a on with in a decade ...

Navision bought Axapta guys, before being bought by MS.

Patrik : you're correct, Navision purchased Daamgard before MS acquired Navision
