Q&A: Kevin Parker, CEO Deltek - Yahoo!7 News

Some interesting comments from the Q&A:

Before I started out at Deltek two-and-a-half years ago, I didn't know much about the company. Its one of the best-kept secrets in software, but its probably the worlds leading provider of software for projects. Other companies have specialized in ERP for manufacturing or other industries, but they operate in fundamentally different ways from us.


We have 12,000 customers built up over a long period time, particularly in government and areas such as in architecture and engineering. It can also be used in places like consultancies and advertising agencies. Most ERP customers buy stuff and then spend lots of time customizing, but most of our software is deployed with no customization.

Its basically ERP for services companies or projects. We occasionally see SAP and Oracle for bids, but most we co-exist, as companies will use Oracle for rest of the business and our software for project work.

Our biggest footprint is in the mid-market; 98% of our customers have less than 1,000 employees.
