Get the current pulse from vendors and industries on the use or adoption of Enterprise Planning Software.
Our 2016 survey base provides a cross-section of data across geographies, functions, organization size, and vertical industries. We believe that, unlike other industry research, this supports a more representative sample and better indicator of true market dynamics. We have constructed cross-tab analyses using these demographics to identify and illustrate important industry trends.
Some of the highlights from this study:
Twenty-nine percent of respondents use enterprise planning software today, down from 31 percent in 2015 poll, indicating ongoing soft demand for adoption.
Among organizations that have not adopted enterprise planning software but do have plans, respondents indicate they are pushing out adoption into future time frames.
Perceived criticality of enterprise planning declined 5 percent in 2016 while measures of “very important” and “important” improved slightly, indicating lower urgency that may relate to economic cycles.
Finance is easily the leading advocate of enterprise planning.
