Vendor Landscape: Mid-Market ERP
New players are taking ERP from just transactions, to business actions.
View Vendor Shortlist
What is a shortlist?
A shortlist is a personalized list of vendors based on the criteria you define. Your shortlist offers more information about vendor's strengths, weaknesses, price-points, etc, and ranks them according to your needs.
What is a Value Score?
The Value Score indexes each vendor’s product offering and business strength relative to their price point. It does not indicate vendor ranking.
Vendors that score high offer more bang for the buck (e.g. features, usability, stability, etc.) than the average vendor, while the inverse is true for those that score lower.
Price-conscious enterprises may wish to give the Value Score more consideration than those who are more focused on specific vendor/product attributes.
- ERP provides standardization and automation to resource and financial management. The mid-market systems provide structured data for better business decisions.
- ERP implementation is difficult and the ROI on the application is unclear. Most organizations fail to standardize their processes and rely on costly customizations to match the ERP to the business needs.
- The mid-market has a wide variety solutions that can support long-term growth and manage financial and business specific processes.
- The mid-market is being shaped by cloud vendors bringing role-based configuration and multi-site capabilities to the mid-market.
- Data management still requires forethought and governance – this cannot be automated.
- Vendors are building analytics into the ERP to reduce the need for separate analytics packages.
