ERP software classified as leading in the "Magic Quadrant for Single-Instance ERP for Product-Centric Midmarket Companies" report "demonstrate a clear vision and the ability to execute against this vision. Midmarket ERP Leaders' products have deep and robust functionality that addresses a range of core user requirements. Not necessarily the largest vendors in terms of revenue, these vendors have proven products, a track record of customer success and demonstrated momentum in growing their market presence, as well as a clearly communicated strategy to develop their current product into a next-generation application without causing too much disruption when adopted by their customer base. Leading vendors have offerings that appeal to the specific process needs of midmarket customers, show good support for user-centric ERP approaches, and are designed or streamlined for low TCO, while being available and well-supported in multiple regions."
Companies positioned as Leaders are "successfully transforming their products to become model-driven applications to allow for high process and information flexibility, with tools for embedded analytics and UIs that allow for easy adoption by different types of users in the context of a user-centric ERP strategy. They also have compelling strategies for addressing the ongoing market changes related to emerging technologies, such as SOA, cloud, mobility and the integration of social technologies."
