ItGs good to see the shift from single vendor systems to
multi-vendor systems based on the best available software for any particular
needs. The only downside I can see with this type of system would be the way
the systems communicate with each other, and if they are able to transfer
information from one system to another without many problems. It is nice though
that organizations are starting to break away from the shackles of having to
stick with one vendor for all their needs.
