ERP Market Definitions And Forecast Assumptions

ERP Financial Management software covers finance-specific business processes such as accounts payable, accounts receivable, general ledger, and fixed asset accounting, as well as online functions such as invoicing, factoring, electronic payments and financial reporting. FM applications revenues represent a major contributor to the Enterprise Resource Planning market as part of our market sizing exercise.

ERP Services and Operations Management covers integrated applications suites designed to automate a range of business processes from back-office operations to financial management and from sales order capture to customer information management. Currently ERP also covers functions not being addressed by other functional markets. Examples include Environment and Health and Safety, Governance, Risk and Compliance, as well as industry-specific applicatons for 21 verticals.

Buoyed by NetSuite, Workday and Xero, the ERP FM market has never looked more promising, but incumbents are fighting back with quick conversion toolkits, GL upgrades and embedded analytics for easy reporting.

Industry-specific ERP applications continue to exert considerable influence over direction of enterprise applications market, but growth remains muted because of entrenched presence of legacy systems.

We supplement their written responses with our own primary research to determine quarterly and yearly growth rates, In addition to customer wins to ascertain whether these are net new purchases or expansions of existing implementations.

The database provides customer insight and contextual information on what types of enterprise software systems and other relevant technologies are they running and their propensity to invest further with their current or new suppliers as part of their overall IT transformation projects to stay competitive, fend off threats from disruptive forces, or comply with internal mandates to improve overall enterprise efficiency.
