Consolidation predicted among ERP players
The traditional 'big five' Enterprise Resource Planning companies could become a thing of the past over the next few years.
Speaking at the Deloitte Consulting ?Maximising The Pay Off Of ERP? conference in Brussels, IT adviser Dr Michael Hammer, said there was an ‘evolution underway towards a limited number of ERP offerers.’
The traditional big players include Peoplesoft, SAP, Baan and JD Edwards.
However, the larger vendors suffered negative results last year due to Y2K.
