Press Release, 12/7/10
International Data Corporation (IDC) today announced the launch of the industry’s first global tracker covering the enterprise resource management (ERM) applications market on a semiannual basis. Covering six major regions and 13 of the largest country markets, the Worldwide Semiannual Enterprise Resource Management Applications Tracker provides biannual market size, vendor share, and forecast data for the eight functional markets that comprise the ERM market in IDC’s software taxonomy.
The ERM Applications Tracker is one of five new global Software Trackers being launched by IDC with results delivered to clients through both Excel-based spreadsheets and on-line Query tools. A critical component to the Software Trackers is the global presence of IDC’s software analysts who interview vendors, channel partners, and integrators on an ongoing basis at the country, regional, and global levels. This information is supplemented by IDC’s software contracts database and carefully analyzed by IDC’s newly established software company model team before it is entered into IDC’s proprietary Tracker data platform.
