These stats are given to us via our partners. Some of their names you have 
already hit on the head, others included companies like Ellucian with a huge 
part of the North America Higher Ed market, Hitech Systems with 
government/emergency services, Zafire with airlines, P2 with energy, etc. We 
have quite a few vendors who are very large and successful players in their 
respective verticals.

Cheers,
Dan

Daniel,
 
In the "View from the Top by Andy Youniss", he list the following;
 
40% of US institutions of higher education 80% of Mexico’s emergency response 
systems 70% of North America’s largest independent insurance agencies 80% of 
automobile dealerships in North America 55% of Fortune 100 companies 50% of the 
top 400 energy-products companies
 
Except for the Fortune 100 companies, it would seem that the others might be 
using packaged software.
A list of these packages might be interesting.
 
I'm not disputing the numbers but some explanation of how they were calculated 
would be nice to know.
 
I have a vague idea about the auto dealers and higher education but not the 
others. I think this illustrates the "I never heard of Pick/multi-value 
software" comments we hear a lot of because the database is "hidden" from the 
users.
 
BTW, maybe auto parts and many other wholesalers and retailers should be added 
to this list.
 
Just my 2 cents,

Don Robinson
