This IDC study reviews shares for the ERP software market, which grew steadily in 2017. It is clear the pace of change in the ERP software market is accelerating rapidly, largely thanks to the 3rd Platform and the innovation accelerators of cognitive systems including machine learning and IoT. This acceleration is no longer about "when" the enterprise jumps onboard but now about rationalization, modernization, and transformation as companies make the move.According to Mickey North Rizza, program VP, Enterprise Applications and Digital Commerce, "ERP solutions are quickly advancing into the cloud. The 3rd Platform, i-ERP, and the digital economy are shaping the new normal within ERP. Digital transformation initiatives are bringing the back office to parody with the front office and yielding a new digital core that encompasses the entire enterprise."
