Compaq Will Build eBusiness Around Candle's Roma.
Candle has been busily promoting Roma but Steve Craggs, VP of Candle's EAI business, concedes that despite the company has only 40 customers for it worldwide. However, with Compaq's $7bn services business pushing Roma as part of its enterprise scale e-business solution, this population seems sure to grow. Additionally, claims Craggs, as a "near OEM" agreement, Compaq's choice of Roma could help Candle finally crack open the OEM opportunity which has so far largely eluded it, and attract further endorsements from other major systems integrators, such as Unisys, EDS and Andersen Consulting.
However, in the short-term it seems unlikely even Compaq's endorsement will have any dramatic effect on Roma revenues. The technology has been made available to Compaq on favorable terms, and the latter's NonStop ebusiness is in any case still a small portion of its systems integration business.
