Top 100 ERP Software Vendors


In 2012, the global Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) applications market grew 3.6% to approach nearly $36 billion in license, maintenance and subscription revenues, slightly above our previous projection.

In 2011 our projection called for a 3.1% growth for 2012 and the better-than-expected results was attributed to an improving economy, coupled with increased adoptions of Cloud-based ERP applications.

Last year SAP led the pack with 20.8% market share with $7.5 billion in ERP product revenues, riding on a 9.2% jump in license, maintenance and subscription revenues. Oracle was No. 2 achieving 11.7% share, Infor was the third at 4% and Sage and Microsoft were tied at the fourth place with 3.8% each.

Workday posted 118% jump in ERP applications revenues in 2012, buoyed by growing acceptance of its Cloud-based financials and HCM software. The steep rise solidified the positioning of Workday, which became the fastest-growing ERP applications vendor last year.


Aspen Technology, Upland Software (formerly PowerSteering), SS&C and Ventyx also were among the fastest-growing ERP applications vendors due to their solid results as well as acquisitions they made last year. Here are the 10 ERP applications vendors that grew the most in 2012.

We are working on the update of the Top 100 ERP vendors and that report will be published shortly.

After the storm passes, the siren comes. That perhaps sums up the state of the ERP applications market as it readies another roller-coaster ride following the end of the financial crisis. This applications market sizing report focuses on the 2012 performance of the leading vendors in the worldwide enterprise resource planning applications market.

The good news is that most vendors have weathered the storm pretty well, leaving them with a solid base of recurring revenues as well as new sources of growth in horizontal and vertical markets. The bad news is that companies are demanding greater returns on their ERP investments. Companies that used to be spending tens of millions of dollars on ERP projects are shifting their investment plans to more tactical solutions, mostly via the Cloud to eliminate upfront license costs.

Others that are stuck with multiple ERP systems and the associated maintenance agreements have begun to rationalize their IT environment in favor of simplifying their technology stack or in some cases taking on a shared service approach, either of which is bound to hurt certain ERP vendors.

As a result, the balancing act for most vendors is to maintain the status quo for as long as possible, while making the necessary adjustment in order to take advantage of the new world of software consumption.

Another source of uncertainty lies in developing countries such as Brazil, China, and Russia, all of which have been showing signs of deceleration.

Whatever the case, the ERP market, which in some cases is regaining its momentum after a long recession and a consolidation wave, is entering uncharted territory with terrain that is more treacherous than ever.

Top Line and Bottom Line

On the top line, the ERP applications market has begun to diverge into core vs. edge. Some of the vendors such as QSII and McKesson have seen decelerating growth with their core ERP offerings, while edge products usually delivered via the Cloud have enjoyed growing adoptions among customers.

After more than six years of development, the Fusion ERP applications from Oracle have started gaining traction. According to the vendor, it has picked up more than 400 customers for its Fusion applications with many deploying Financials and HCM modules in the Cloud.

Similarly, vendors such as AthenaHealth, NetSuite and Workday have seen their Cloud applications revenues skyrocket over the past year surpassing the growth rates of counterparts in the on-premise world. Workday, for example, saw its Cloud-based revenues jump 118% to $181 million in 2012.

The trend is expected to continue as on-premise ERP vendors ramp up their Cloud-based offerings, while Cloud-savvy providers seek to consolidate their gain through a smattering of global partnerships and strategic alliances.

For instance, Sage, the No. 4 ERP vendor that has been mostly selling on-premise packages, recently announced a slew of add-on capabilities including Mobile services and Mobile sales capabilities, both of which will be made available through Azure, the Cloud-based platform from Microsoft. Sage is also wooing other Cloud-based ISVs to deliver their Web services through, the Web-based portal for Sage’s two million customers in North America.

It remains to be seen how these partnerships are going to reshape the global ERP market. Yonyou, the leading Chinese ERP vendor formerly known as UFIDA, announced a deal in 2011 with Atos, the French IT consulting firm, to take its software around the world under Yunano, a joint venture.

Yunano is expected to help Yonyou sell Cloud applications to customers in Asia Pacific via Canopy, which is the Cloud service provider created by Atos with the help of EMC and VMware. According to Yunano’s website, it has more than 1.5 million customers. It is not clear how many of these Yunano customers are also long-time users of Yonyou, whose customer count has also exceeded 1.5 million.

On the other hand, countries such as Australia, China and Russia that used to drive the growth of a wide swath of ERP vendors have been cited as key reasons behind the recent slowdown. Even TOTVS, the high-flying ERP vendor in Brazil, has lost some of its luster in recent months.

For the first quarter of 2013, TOTVS saw a 2% drop in license revenues following a 22% decline in average selling prices to new clients. Number of new clients added in first quarter of 2013 also fell 6%.

Coincidentally the deceleration is coming on the heels of new economic measures expected from central bankers, namely the move to end regular purchases of government bonds under the quantitative easing policy by the US Federal Reserve, which has been instrumental in reviving the domestic economy with ultra-low interest rates.

As with many big-ticket purchases, ERP systems have benefited from such easy credit that has fueled the investment boom  around the globe, tempting CFOs and line-of-business executives to either issue new corporate debt or ratchet up capital spending over the past few years. If a more risk-adverse climate becomes the norm as seen in the cooling down of economic engines in places like China and Brazil, ERP vendors could be in for a rude awakening just as their migration to the Cloud is taking shape.

Source: Apps Run The World

Much of the growth will be driven by the rise of Cloud-based ERP systems and their associated subscription revenues. License and maintenance revenues are expected to show little or no growth through the forecast period.

In terms of regional spending patterns, Asia Pacific will continue to outpace EMEA and North America as large and small enterprises are increasing their IT budgets in order to stay competitive by shoring up their financial, procurement, HR and other integrated systems for improved efficiency and greater insights into their global operations. The same bullish sentiments can also be found in Latin America and Africa.

Will rising tide lift all boats? Despite the fact that the ERP applications market could add $8 billion in incremental revenues over the next five years, not all gains will be shared equally. In 2012 a number of vendors including Athenahealth, Infinite Campus and RealPage have made a concerted effort to gain share through competitive wins, namely displacing the incumbents such as QSII, Skyward and Yardi, respectively. The outcome could only be described as acrimonious at best.

For example, Infinite Campus of Blaine, MN, won a state-wide contract worth $15 million to install student information system in Wisconsin, the home state of its rival Skyward, which for years has been the ERP provider for 50 percent of Wisconsin school districts. Skyward appealed the decision all the way to Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker threatening to leave the state if the contract was upheld. The same scenarios are expected to play out on a wider scale as Cloud-based ERP vendors direct their resources squarely against their on-premise counterparts in a frenetic race to win the bulk of ERP implementations mostly through legacy system replacements across the entire marketplace.

The storm may have passed, but the damage has already been done. For ERP applications vendors, the shift toward Cloud delivery and mobile extensions will leave some more exposed than others. As customers begin to reevaluate their back-office environments in order to achieve better results, the new era of corporate computing, which favors easy-to-use Web services and always-on availability over heavy customization or batch processing, could rearrange the competitive landscape.

Amid the volatility, the only certainty is that the current crop of leading ERP applications vendors will be hard pressed holding onto their existing customers, let alone winning new ones, in another potentially devastating storm, one that could bring calamity for some and opportunity for others.
