IDC FutureScape: Worldwide Intelligent ERP 2019 Predictions

This IDC study provides IDC's 2019 top 10 predictions for intelligent ERP systems and intelligent enterprise applications. "Intelligent ERP and intelligent enterprise applications are changing businesses' reliance on technology, moving from a transactional data repository to a substantial, proactive, outcome-based resource to the organization. Businesses can now view and interact with their organization in real time; ask questions such as what, where, when, how, and why; and predict alternative outcomes to mitigate risk. Intelligent enterprise systems enable greater productivity and profitability and the opportunity for more revenue as businesses become more agile and flexible and an intelligent enterprise," said Mickey North Rizza, program VP, Enterprise Applications and Digital Commerce, at IDC.
