Microsoft tops ERP spending survey

Microsoft tops ERP spending survey

Microsoft business technology is top choice for 2006, according to AMR Research

Microsoft Business Solutions is the leading platform for businesses aiming to
purchase or upgrade their enterprise resource planning products in the next
year, a study has found.

Some 271 IT decision-makers surveyed by AMR Research said they would choose
MBS over other technology providers such as Oracle and SAP, which came second
and third in the poll.

The report showed that more than 70% of organisations plan to increase their
ERP spending in 2006, reflecting pent-up demand following several years of IT
cost-cutting.

‘Our research indicates that there will be a huge surge in ERP spending in
2006. With companies of all sizes growing their ERP budgets, this is bound to be
a banner year for top vendors in this space,’ said AMR research director Jim
Shepherd.
