Solutions Review’s ERP Vendors to Watch is an annual listing of solution providers we believe are worth monitoring in the coming year.
The process of searching, evaluating, purchasing, and deploying an Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) solution is not as simple as it once was. There’s no such thing as a one-size-fits-all approach to ERP software, especially since solutions come in a variety of different flavors and each features a particular set of capabilities, strengths, and drawbacks.
To help you keep your finger on the pulse of the marketplace, we’ve turned our gaze to the future of ERP software. Whether its inclusion in a recent analyst report, the release of an innovative new tool, or a bump in venture funding, these are the ERP vendors that have earned watch list status from Solutions Review for the year ahead. Companies are commonly included if they demonstrate a product roadmap aligning with our meta-analysis of the marketplace. Other criteria include recent and significant funding, talent acquisition, a disruptive or innovative new technology or product, or inclusion in an analyst publication.
