'TMS' - Too Much Software - Got You Down?

No one knows for sure when the slang expression 'TMI'--for "too much information"--began, but Wikipedia sums up the catchphrase best: an expression indicating that someone has divulged too much personal information and made the listener uncomfortable.
Right now, companies are experiencing something similar, but having to do with enterprise software. Call it 'TMS'--too much software--and it is making companies and their users, CEOs and CFOs, and CIOs and IT pros very uncomfortable.
Nowhere is the TMS phenomenon more apparent, more pervasive and more harmful than inside 21st Century enterprise software suites--the jumble of ERP, CRM, supply chain and BI applications spread all over the globe.
