This is a difficult subject to tackle, since ERP is such a large, mature market and so many companies rely on and continue to adopt and upgrade ERP systems. From QuickBooks to SAP, we all rely on some form of enterprise system to keep our financial, HR and, potentially, other elements (customer, supply chain) in sync. To begin to shed light on the issue, let’s look at two dynamic aspects of the ERP market now: innovation and leadership.
1. Innovation—What is currently being developed and how well is it usable/implementable by the average user?
2. ERP company leadership—Leaders tell you a lot about where the company is going. How hard will they fight for progress? Are they on a path to greatness? Can they take their companies there?
