Plateau's acquisition of Nuvosoft helps round out Plateau's talent management suite. Nuvosoft has strong functionality, but a limited customer base.
Financial management, human capital management and procurement applications form the administrative "backbone" for all organizations. These Key Issues for 2007 summarize Gartner's research in these areas.
Also, if you are a Gartner for IT Leaders client, check out the new ERP/SCM specialty page off of the Application Management Home Page. There is an Analyst Corner section that I post blog entries to on occasion.
