Panorma, an independent ERP solutions consulting company, published their annual ERP report naming Microsoft Dynamics ERP as the most selected ERP software. Their report available for download below entitled, “2016 REPORT ON ERP SYSTEMS AND ENTERPRISE SOFTWARE, ” is a wealth of information for anyone thinking of upgrading their ERP or implementing ERP for the first time.
The report by Panorama sites that Microsoft tops the list of all ERP solutions for being:
- the most selected ERP software
The statistics are impressive: continually Microsoft is most selected as the software vendor of choice, followed by Oracle (23%), SAP (20%) and Epicor (7%). Other ERP vendors in Panorama’s dataset included IFS, NetSuite, Plex Systems, QAD, Sage, SYSPRO, Tyler Technologies and Unit4, just to name a few. (Note: An updated Nucleus Research report out July, 2016, says that 6 out of 10 customers would not choose SAP again.)
This statistic is further compounded fascinatingly as Microsoft is only shortlisted 27% of the time as opposed to other competitors being shortlisted more often: SAP is shortlisted at 41% and Oracle at 37%.
These numbers are no surprise to us at Clients First, a VAR rated in the top 1% of all the value added resellers. Our company has been implementing ERP for Microsoft Dynamics NAV and Dynamics AX since Microsoft’s inception when the products were called Navision and Axapta.
