IDC MarketScape Industry Analysis Report SaaS and Cloud Manufacturing ERP Software
As Acumatica Gold Certified partner, we’re always thrilled to see Acumatica get recognition by industry analysists. Acumatica is the world’s fastest-growing cloud ERP software for small to mid-sized businesses (SMBs). It’s no surprise Acumatica made the list in the “IDC MarketScape: Worldwide SaaS and Cloud-Enabled Manufacturing ERP Applications 2019 Vendor Assessment” link to pdf. IDC named Acumatica’s cloud manufacturing ERP software a “Major Player.” It’s fortunate for SMBs that Acumatica is a much more affordable option compared to many others on the list.
The International Data Corporation (IDC) includes over 1,100 analyst experts worldwide. The IDC helps business executives, IT professionals and investors make decisions about technology to accomplish business goals. Selecting the right ERP for manufacturing is a complex decision. In this report released in June 2019, they evaluated 13 SaaS and cloud-enabled ERP vendors for manufacturing. Integration is at the heart of any modern ERP platform. Small and mid-sized businesses need integrated capabilities for the entire company. They also need an ERP that’s scalable as they grow.
Here’s part of the IDC synopsis. “No matter the type of manufacturer you are, the one thing every company has to come to terms with is change. The manufacturing industry is changing faster than ever before, and it will be those ready to adapt that will succeed in this environment. However, most manufacturers are still utilizing legacy ERP systems that can’t evolve fast enough. Modernizing your manufacturing ERP software is a critical step in the digital transformation journey,” stated Reid Paquin, research director, Manufacturing IT Priorities & Strategies (ITP&S). “There are a lot of options when it comes to manufacturing ERP, selecting the best vendor for your requirements is a changing task but essential to long-term success.” This excerpt is from page 10 in the “IDC MarketScape: Worldwide SaaS and Cloud-Enabled Manufacturing ERP Applications 2019 Vendor Assessment.”
