"The enterprise resource management applications market continues to grow strongly, despite its size and maturity. The movement to the cloud is driving much of the innovation in the enterprise resource management applications area. New and innovative vendors, building socially enabled cloud offerings, are emerging and starting to have an impact as they nibble away at the market share of the larger, traditional players. This does not mean that the traditional vendors are standing still, they are also stepping up the game to modernize existing applications, build new ones, and acquire new technology," says Christine Dover, research director, Enterprise Applications and Digital Commerce.
