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 
BTW, maybe auto parts and many other wholesalers and retailers should be added 
to this list.
Just my 2 cents,

Don Robinson
