if not disruption…
We looked back at our 2015 predictions to find that we were mostly right. Major ERP vendor growth slowed and there were no blockbuster acquisitions. Enterprise Software customers questioned high maintenance fees and cloud ERP took off.
Meanwhile, there was much cloudwashing and little innovation among larger vendors. Private equity acquired more vendors.
2015 was the year that most ERP buyers came to understand the implications of legacy technology – the high technical debt and the difficulty of adapting software to meet the demands of an increasing digital and social media world. “Customization” became a dirty word in 2015.
