Cloud-based ERP software company NetSuite has just finished their annual user and partner event, SuiteWorld. This year's event is significant as it's the first one after the company's acquisition by Oracle last year. That US$9.2B purchase is Oracle's largest ever acquisition and will drive some changes in how NetSuite operates.

Yesterday, we ran a story discussing how to choose business software. In the comments kal0psia asked "Are there any plans to build a PSA in the actual Suite platform rather than integrating into OpenAir? Last time I checked this still wasn't the case".

I'm currently attending SuiteWorld. This is the annual customer event for cloud-based ERP software maker NetSuite (which was acquired by Oracle late last year). During the opening keynote today, given by Executive Vice President of Oracle + NetSuite Jim McGeever, it was announced that a new piece of the NetSuite product pie would become available this June. The new HR module, SuitePeople, brings HR functions into the suite. But this had me thinking. Is a single software solution that brings everything to you in one neat package the way to go? Or should you buy best-of-breed apps for each function and integrate them?
As you read this, I should be somewhere over the Pacific Ocean, en route to Las Vegas. I'll be attending SuiteWorld. This is NetSuite's annual event where the company shares what's new, gets customers to tell their stories and tells us what's we can expect from their cloud-based business software in the coming year.
