Which technology to use for a PPC package?

We want to do a PPC (production planning and control) package. We want to do it as a product. Which technology...

should I go for? The first thing you should do, when making a decision like this, is perform a thorough analysis of your customers' needs. If your customer is the industry in general, perform a thorough market analysis to determine which technology best fits your business goals.

Once you have completed an analysis, you will be able to determine the hardware and operating system requirements that you must meet. With this information, you will be able to determine the platform that more closely fits. This will allow you to make a decision as to whether you should base your product on Java/J2EE, .NET, CORBA, JCL, a combination of these or roll your own from scratch. Also, check with industry experts to determine if you can leverage work that has been done by others.
