Ok. Sorry. I misread it.
I think we need to see the difference between red ocean (win-loose) vs. blue ocean (win win) situation.
- Cheaper vendor wont eat the market share of Frappe
- as they have moved away from the dell business to apple business. Aka, it is not their target anyway.
- this is reflected in thier pricing decision // cheaper customer that provide learning is not so important to them
- I think more service providers will fill in the gaps due to proximity, language, special requirements, slice and dicing the offerings
- In the long term more Dells for the short term. Before people branch out and carve out thier own niches.
Although there are some that are not sharing there are others sharing thier local versions.
Ex : There is a Swiss version on Github with bank reconciliation.
We can make assumptions about the community. If we do, lets make positive assumptions.
That many are benevolent, most as passive and some neither.
Also need to remember, lots of submissions are never picked up by the foundation into the core for many good reasons
- does not fit the monolith model
- does not have sufficient resources to dedicate
If the foundation needs to step up and absorb what is already there and make features optional, it needs
- high quality developers
- 10-15 full time developers
- 2-3 managers to oversee operations
- 1-2 full time visionary leaders
It is a fairly complex, beautifully designed, organically built system.
As developers & visionaries, Frappe + Foundation + Community will have to constantly revisit the operations and see if it is the correct operational direction and make choices in some areas
- Growth vs. Stability
- Build or Absorb
- Monolith or Integrations
Maybe it can check all the boxes. But will need just more resources.
Overall, I see that ERPNext will do for ERP what Linux did for OS.
I will place a bet on that.
