In the reference section 2-1 of our Forecast: Enterprise CRM, ERP and SCM IT Services Solutions we listed an incorrect percentage for comparison.

24 May 2005
In our 23 May 2005 report entitled, No Clear Winner in Overall RDBMS Market Share Race, the 2004 RDBMS market share for Oracle on the Linux platform was incorrectly identified as 69.1 percent. The correct market share is 80.5 percent. We have corrected and republished the document.

In our 1 April 2005 report entitled, User Feedback Reveals Ups and Downs of Strohl's Business Continuity Planning Software, the "What You Need to Know" section contained information about customer satisfaction with the Living Disaster Recovery Planning System that could be misinterpreted. The report has been updated with the correct information.

1 April 2005
In the research document User Study: Server Preferences of Large Organizations, Asia/Pacific, 2005 (G00126732), the wrong Summary was inadvertently included with the document and the associated Executive Summary. The corrections have been made and the documents have been republished with the correct Summary.

In the research document Organizations Should Revisit Browser Standardization, the name of a software distribution and management tool was incorrectly identified. The correct name is HP/Radia.

7 January 2005
In our research report "Forecast: SCM License Revenue, Worldwide, 2003-2008, Update (G00124483), published 19 October 2004, the license revenue for Intentia and IFS were misrepresented by the inclusion of maintenance revenue. We have adjusted our estimates for i2 Technologies because of publicly available information that was recently released. The correction represents 0.0047 percent of the worldwide SCM market. The effect is so minimal that no change is felt necessary. However, changes to individual vendor market share in each region, industry and OS have slightly affected each SCM segment's size and forecast for 2003 through 2008. An updated report has been published titled Forecast: SCM License Revenue, Worldwide, 2003-2008, Update (G00125530).

The correction represented 0.006 percent of the worldwide ERP market. The effect is so minimal that no change is felt necessary. However, changes to individual vendor market share in each region, industry and OS have slightly affected each ERP segment's size and forecast. An updated report has been published titled Forecast: ERP Software, Worldwide, 3Q04 Update (G00125567).
