Abstract: Presently the ERP software market is characterized by a fierce competition of some of the largest software producers of the world. While SAP tries to defend its position as the market leader, Oracle, founded as database vendor, has heavily invested into its ERP business by taking over large related software producers like Peoplesoft or Siebel. Microsoft also bought ERP vendors as a basis for its MBS (Microsoft Business Solution) division. IBM and Sage are further players in the multi-billion market of ERP software. Currently the market faces two big challenges. (1) The classic ERP market addressing large corporations has become mature and is characterized by growth through displacement today. However the ERP market for SME still promises big growth rates. (2) The classic monolithic ERP systems are presently replaced by new middleware based technologies that provide open platforms to easily integrate business applications of third party software producers. Network externalities will si gnificantly influence which ERP vendor(s) will dominate the future market. Therefore we will qualitatively analyse the current strengths and weaknesses of the presently most promising ERP producer with respect to network externalities. (More)
