Research and Markets: Global SaaS-based Enterprise Resource Planning Software Market to 2016: Microsoft, NetSuite, Oracle & SAP Dominate the Industry

DUBLIN--()--Research and Markets ( has announced the addition of the "Global SaaS-based Enterprise Resource Planning Software Market 2012-2016" report to their offering.

The increasing influence of social networking sites such as Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn, allows SaaS-based ERP vendors to introduce social networking in businesses that will help the employees to interact with their customers. The linkage of SaaS-based ERP software with social media gives employees a much more rich understanding of the end-customer, making customer interaction more personal. The use of social tools within ERP software also increases the degree of integration between co-workers, which in turn improves the quality of information captured about customers.

Moreover, inspired by the Apple Application Store, the ERP Application Store has been introduced by SAP AG. SAP has also added the ability for customers and partners to buy and resell its Business One ERP software for smaller companies through the store. Vendors such as SAP AG, NetSuite Inc., and Microsoft Corp. are actively building application stores to provide smartphone access to ERP data. SaaS-based ERP is being impacted by mobility and the propagation of smartphone applications, and is focusing more on building out an ecosystem of applications that will run with native functionality on the iPhone and Android.

According to the report, one of the major drivers of the Global SaaS-based ERP Software market is the increasing demand from SMEs. This is because tasks such as implementation, continuous operation, backup, updates, and infrastructure maintenance of the ERP software are handled by SaaS vendors, thus reducing the total cost of ownership of ERP solutions.
