Gartner Report: Global ERP Grew 16.7 Percent Last Year

The global ERP market grew 16.7 percent last year, hitting a market valuation of $20.7 billion, according to figures recently reported by Gartner. SAP is clearly dominant as the vendor with the largest marketshare, with SAP's 28 percent being exactly double the second-largest marketshare for an ERP vendor: Oracle.

The third, Sage (7 percent), is coincidentally exactly half of Oracle's marketshare. The next two vendors--Info Global Solutions and Microsoft--took 6 percent and 4 percent, respectively. That still left the largest slice of the marketshare pie--at 41 percent--to be split among a wide field of "others."
