ERM applications market to see steady growth in the coming years: IDC

SAP, Oracle, and Microsoft hold almost one third of the overall market and have slightly increased their collective position compared to 2010

By CBR Staff Writer

The Enterprise Resource Management (ERM) applications market is predicted to enter prolonged period of steady growth after recording extraordinary growth 2011, according to a report by International Data Corporation (IDC).

IDC’s Worldwide Semiannual ERM Applications Tracker monitors almost 370 ERM vendors in a total of 49 countries.

IDC Worldwide Software Trackers director Patrick Melgarejo said 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.

"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," he added.

In 2012, the regions are expected to grow at single-digit rates on average, starting a prolonged conservative yet positive period where every region except Western Europe would grow at above-market rates.

Asia/Pacific excluding Japan and North America is expected to record best growth led by massive investments in ERM in countries including China, India, Indonesia, Philippines, Thailand, and the US.

Latin America, unlike past years, is not expected to be feature among the top regions due to an anticipated drop in Mexico, while CEMA and Japan will show steady positive growth, IDC said.
