SW is buggy and difficult to manage. Overall HW quality is a joke for mission critical systems. Holding on due to a near monopoly in the market. The introduction of any real competition in the market could be disastrous for them.

NICE isn’t a hyper-growth software company with a revolutionary technology. But without the less profitable, more sluggish physical security division, NICE’s growth has picked. Excluding those divisions, in the most recent quarter, sales and EPS increased by 9% and 11%, respectively. Growth will pick up further this year (analysts are predicting 31% in 2017) as sales generated by recently acquired inContact aren’t yet included in the financial statements for 2016. Beyond 2017, growth is expected to slow to 5-10% annually.

Other pluses: It is profitable (27% non-GAAP operating margin), has a lot of cash (16% of market cap), and 50% of revenue is recurring. It is also relatively cheap for a SaaS company -- 3.6x and 18x sales and earnings for 2017. So I think it has a good chance to beat the market on its own. Though it might also be acquired by a larger software company. Its not too big or expensive, and I could see them being acquired by Oracle or SAP for customer relationships, technology and recurring its revenue stream. Also, since the company is based in Israel, a US-based tech company could fund the acquisition with unrepatriated foreign cash.

A fresh connection with IBM will buoy short term value.
