ERM Applications Market Forecast to Enter Prolonged Period of Steady Growth Following an Extraordinary 2011, According to IDC
20 Jun 2012
FRAMINGHAM, Mass., June
20, 2011 – International Data Corporation (IDC) today announced the latest
results of its Worldwide
Semiannual Enterprise Resource Management (ERM) Applications Tracker.
The tracker monitors almost 370 ERM vendors in a total of 49 countries, providing
biannual market size, vendor share, and forecast data for the eight functional
markets that comprise the ERM market in IDC's software taxonomy.
"The ERM applications market surpassed expectations
reaching 11.9% year-over-year growth in 2011, with the first half of the year
performing slightly better than the second half," said Patrick Melgarejo, director,
Worldwide Software Trackers. "In terms of functional markets, three out of
eight performed better than the average ERM market; they are Human Capital
Management, Financial Performance and Strategy Management, and Project &
Portfolio Management. These markets are also expected to perform the best in
the years to come."
In 2012, the regions are forecast to grow at single-digit
rates on average, starting a prolonged conservative yet positive period. Every
region except Western Europe is forecast to grow at above-market rates. Asia/Pacific
(excluding Japan) and North America will perform the best as investments in ERM
heighten in countries including China, India, Indonesia, Philippines, Thailand,
and the United States. Latin America, unlike past years, is not expected to be
among the top regions because of an anticipated drop in Mexico. Meanwhile CEMA
and Japan are forecast to show steady positive growth.
"In a global economy that continues to offer hopeful
signs mixed with uncertainties and elevated downside risk, companies will
continue to have a greater need for software and services that help drive down
costs, manage risk, improve productivity, and identify new opportunities for
growth," said Scott Guinn,
research director, Enterprise
Applications. "There is also a heightened awareness of the
consumer, and with that the need to integrate ERM more holistically with front-facing
systems. Technology trends fueling the recovery in ERM include advances in
architectural constructs, such as cloud computing, mobility, advanced analytics,
and new social models and tools. This means more touch points, greater
transparency, and more intelligent engagement with customers, employees,
suppliers, and partners."
As in the latest years, SAP, Oracle, and Microsoft hold
almost one third of the overall ERM applications market and have slightly
increased their collective position compared to 2010. However, when it comes to
specific functional markets the competitive scenario varies substantially. IBM
holds the number 1 position in the Enterprise Asset Management market. Infor
and ABB Ltd. are the other top competitors in this market. Within the Project
and Portfolio Management market, the top 5 ranking is completed by CA
Technologies and Deltek Inc. IBM, Infor, and SAS are also top competitors in
the Financial Performance and Strategy Management Applications market.
The competitive scenario changes again when analyzed by
region. While in Latin America TOTVS threatens the leading position with continuous
growth of more than 30% year over year. In Western Europe vendors such as DATEV
and Sage are in the mix for second place. In Asia/Pacific (excluding Japan),
UFIDA and Kingdee displace some of the traditional world class leaders and in
Japan, besides SAP and Oracle, Fujitsu, Works Applications, and OBIC Business
Consultants control the top 5 ranking.
