Here are some key findings from our research on enterprise software:

  • 69% of respondents currently use enterprise software and another 9% are considering an
    implementation within a year
  • Small companies were far more likely to not use or have a plan for enterprise software (nearly 22
    times more likely than large companies, and over three times more likely than small to medium
    organizations).
  • Databases, storage and human resources were the most popular business functions towards which
    companies are using or considering enterprise software, however mobility was also cited as a strong
    category for future deployments.
  • Customer Relationship Management (CRM), Business Intelligence (BI), Financial Management and IT
    Service Management/System Integration were the top four components of enterprise software in use.
  • 24% of respondents were “very satisfied” with their current enterprise software products and another
    55% described themselves as “somewhat satisfied.”
  • Nearly a third of respondents have replaced enterprise apps with cloud services within the past year,
    or intend to do so in the next year and just slightly less are opting for a hybrid approach.
