In the mid-1990s everyone referred to the great ERP leaders as JBOPS – JD Edwards, Baan, Oracle, PeopleSoft, and SAP. These companies were estimated to own over half of all market share in the ERP space. But the market consolidated dramatically in the early 2000s leaving what Gartner referred to as the SPOMS which soon turned into SOMS – SAP, Oracle, Microsoft, and Sage as JD Edwards had been acquired by PeopleSoft who in turn was acquired by Oracle. Meanwhile, UK-based Sage Group continued to acquire midmarket ERP products becoming a major force in the market along with Microsoft’s entry into ERP with the acquisitions of Great Plains (along with Solomon) and Navision (along with Axapta).

But that was about a decade ago and a LOT has changed since then. Our opinion is that the market has shifted dramatically and there are now many more major players to consider – especially in the North American market. From e2b’s perspective, the market leaders can now be identified by a new acronym (because acronyms are a cornerstone of the ERP market).
