Top ERP Vendors in 2021

In no particular order, these are the top ERP vendors you should consider for your next ERP project.

Oracle 

Company Profile:

Headquarters: Austin, TX
Ownership: Public
Stock Ticker: NYSE: ORCL
Number of Employees: 135,000
Annual Revenue: $39.5B

It should come as no surprise that Oracle stands as one of the top ERP vendors on the market today. As the second-largest software company in the world by revenue and market capitalization, Oracle develops applications and tools for database development, Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) software, Human Capital Management (HCM), and Supply Chain Management (SCM) software.

Oracle's dominant market share in the EPR industry is largely influenced by several notable acquisitions including PeopleSoft (including JD Edwards) in 2005, Siebel in 2006, and later NetSuite in 2016.

While Oracle receives substantial revenues from legacy on-premise ERP products such as Oracle E-Business Suite, PeopleSoft, and JD Edwards the major focus of Oracle sales and marketing is spent promoting it's born in the cloud ERP portfolio including NetSuite, the #1 selling cloud-based ERP for the SMB/ MME marketplace.  

 

oracle Cloud-based ERP Products:

Oracle Cloud ERP Reviews & Ratings 2021Oracle Fusion Cloud ERP

Oracle's flagship cloud-based ERP product "Oracle Fusion Cloud ERP" focuses primarily on four key areas:

  • Financial Management
  • Supply Chain Management
  • Project Management
  • Risk Management

Oracle Fusion is geared towards larger, more complex organizations preparing to move key business systems that were once on-premise, to the cloud. 

Benefits of Oracle Fusion include flexible billing contracts, ease of integration with other Oracle applications, and extensive customization options.

While Oracle Cloud is a great ERP system some potential areas of concern have more to do with who is and isn't a good fit for Oracle Cloud ERP.  Companies that have complex manufacturing needs or global supply chains are likely not a great fit (today) for Oracle Cloud ERP.  While Oracle Cloud is highly capable there could be better, more mature options to address these specific areas.  

Areas of concern: Some of the common customer complaints revolve around lackluster technical support, long/expensive implementations, and a partner ecosystem still learning the ins and outs of Oracle Cloud ERP.

Oracle Cloud ERP Pricing: Some online resources claim Oracle Cloud ERP pricing starts at $175/month/user however with any tier 1 ERP solution you can expect to spend a couple hundred thousand to well over a million dollars for the software and services.

Oracle Fusion Cloud Customer Reviews: "Oracle ERP cloud is a full comprensive solution that has the capability to cover all our business needs. For a company like us that implemented the solution more than 3 years ago, there are 2 main added value points that we apreciate: 1. The setup steps to cover new business requirements are supported with a rich documentation and a shared knowledge. 2. The extensions powered by an omnicomprensive set of REST API enable the solution to be adjusted to all new busines needs." Source: Gartner Peer Insights

 

NetSuiteNetSuite

Purchased by Oracle in 2016, NetSuite ERP is a cloud-based enterprise resource management platform that improves businesses’ effectiveness, automates core processes, and provides operation-wide visibility. Users can pick and choose advanced modules à la carte to create their own custom-tailored ERP solution.

While Oracle Cloud ERP and NetSuite do overlap in some functionality NetSuite is really directed at companies that have outgrown entry-level accounting systems such as QuickBooks or Great Plains and looking for a more robust cloud-based ERP solution that can help them scale while providing greater visibility organization-wide.  

Areas of concern: NetSuite has experienced tremendous growth in recent years and as a result, some common customer complaints revolve around lack of highly capable technical support and too few seasoned consultants available in the marketplace.

NetSuite ERP Pricing: NetSuite pricing starts at $99/user/mo plus the cost of the suite which starts at $1,499 however most NetSuite customers will spend between $30 to $150k per year for the software and another $50k - $250k for implementation services depending upon the ERP project scope.    

Oracle NetSuite Customer Reviews: "Netsuite offers an infinitely expandable product to our adjust for future business needs and future systems users/employees capabilities. They are also constantly improving the product offering to enabling us to leverage new technology with low implementation costs... " Source: Gartner Peer Insights

 

oracle Legacy On-premise ERP Products:

Oracle E-Business Suite

Oracle E-Business Suite also referred to as EBS is a fully integrated comprehensive suite of business applications that span financial management, supply chain management, human resource management, project management and more. While Oracle EBS can be deployed in the cloud it was originally intended for on-premise use by large organizations with lots of complexity.  To date, there have been over 2,000 deployments across dozens of countries in some of the largest corporations around the globe.  

Oracle EBS Customer Reviews: "Oracle E-Business Suite is the most comprehensive and useful suite of integrated, global business applications which are enable organizations to make good decisions, reduce costs, and increase performance. Oracle E-Business Suite is having strong team management with risk tackling approach. The support and service system is also very helpful and online available 24*7 " Source: Gartner Peer Insights

JD Edwards

Founded in Denver, CO in 1977 JD Edwards the developer of EnterpriseOne is an integrated ERP software suite that was acquired by PeopleSoft just before the Oracle PeopleSoft acquisition in 2004.  JD Edwards referred to as JDE, is commonly used in the manufacturing, distribution, consumer package goods, and construction industries. 

JD Edwards offers plenty of flexibility when it comes to deployment and database preference.  It can be deployed both on-premise or in the cloud (private, public or hybrid) and offers over 80 additional application modules users can deploy as their business needs shift.  While there are still thousands of companies that run JD Edwards around the globe, Oracle sells very few new JDE logos and actively trying to migrate legacy customers to the cloud (Oracle Fusion).

JD Edwards Customer Reviews: "We've just migrated from a legacy JDE system to EnterpriseOne and it turned out to be a really tough ride - the initially planned timeframe was exceeded 3-fold and we yet have to get full control of our material flow again. The reporting features are outstanding, the UI is up-to-date, but under the hood it's extremely complex and migration isn't smooth as one would wish it'd be unfortunately." Source: Gartner Peer Insights

 

PeopleSoft

Also founded in 1977 PeopleSoft offers a suite of integrated applications designed for mid to large organizations that were originally developed with a key focus on human resources and financial management.  Over the years PeopleSoft has matured to include additional modules and capabilities to better support additional departments throughout the entire enterprise.  PeopleSoft over the years has gained significant traction within the higher education and healthcare sectors and continues widespread use over thousands of customers across dozens of countries.  

 

What do the analyst say?

Industry Recognition and Reports | Microsoft Dynamics 365Oracle has continued to receive the highest marks from reputable industry analysts such as Gartner's Magic Quadrant report that comes out each year. 

Most recently both Oracle's Fusion Cloud ERP and NetSuite were featured in the top right (the best) quadrant for "Cloud Core Financial Management Suites for Midsize, Large and Global Enterprises" with Workday and SAP S/4 HANA trailing closely behind. 

To have two products featured in the Leader category shows Oracle's commitment to bringing best-in-class cloud-based ERP solutions to the market that are highly capable and providing tremendous value to the organizations that use them.

SAP

Company Profile:

Headquarters: Waldorf, Germany
Ownership: Public
Stock Ticker: NYSE: SAP
Number of Employees: 100,330
Annual Revenue: $32.15B

SAP the company/brand has become synonymous with ERP software.  Most people think of SAP first when they think of ERP software. 

SAP's partner ecosystem is vast and provides broad capabilities across many different types/sizes of companies, everything from SMB sized retailers to the largest global industrial manufacturers.  

SAP ERP PyramidSAP offers three cloud-based ERP products with SAP S/4 HANA being their flagship cloud-based ERP aimed at the largest, most complex enterprises, followed by SAP Business ByDesign a great product for the MME, and SAP BusinessOne a complete, all-in-one ERP designed and priced for SMB sized companies.  

All three ERP applications are great solutions for companies that are looking for an integrated solution tieing together financial, inventory, supply chain, project, and staffing data to drive better decision making and visibility to the organization. 

All of these ERP products can be deployed using HANA, SAP's multi-model database that stores information in memory instead of on a disk which allows for real-time analytics even for large businesses with massive amounts of data/transactions.  

 

SAP Cloud-based ERP Products

SAP S/4 HANA

S/4 HANA is SAP's flagship cloud-based ERP product (that can also be deployed on-premise).  SAP S/4 HANA is built on the HANA database giving SAP less dependency on competitor databases and provides groundbreaking performance especially for companies storing massive amounts of data and transactions.  While S/4 is SAP's tier 1 EPR it's not designed for just any type of business, its best for organizations that are large, complex, and global in nature (and have a seven-figure ERP budget).  

SAP S/4 Pricing: Like many ERP companies, SAP does not publically disclose list price information for S/4HANA ERP. However, as with most tier 1 ERP systems you should anticipate a high six to seven-figure ERP budget to implement S/4HANA.  

SAP S/4HANA Customer Reviews: "SAP S/4HANA is one of the best enterprise resource planning system that I have worked with, because its operation is very potential to carry out tasks with high precision and high performance, its flexibility has delighted us because this allows the system to adapt easily to all our needs of use, it is a very practical and very updated system, I really describe sap s/4hana as the best among all its competitors" Source: Gartner Peer Insights

 

SAP Business ByDesign

SAP Business ByDesign had a rocky start with its initial introduction to the marketplace and actually claimed to stop further development of the ERP solution back in 2013, and use the be the butt of jokes by industry leaders such as Zach Nelson (former NetSuite CEO). That being said SAP in recent years has continued to increase R&D investment into ByDesign and was recently acknowledged by Gartner, as a "Niche Player" in their annual Magic Quadrant analysis.

SAP Business ByDesign Pricing: The monthly base package fee starts at $1,818 which includes two advanced users and three core users. Additional core users cost $120 per month, and any additional advanced users cost $217 per month. 

SAP ByDesign Customer Reviews: "Use this to manage our financials and production tracking for materials, build instructions, quality checks, part ordering and product management. It is easy to use and input information into for BOM, and for searching to find items." Source: Gartner Peer Insights

 

SAP Business One

SAP Business One is a complete all-in-one ERP solution design for SMB sized companies that can be deployed both in the cloud and on-premise.  SAP is very popular among small manufacturing and distribution companies through Europe and North America and tends to compete well with companies like NetSuite and Sage.  It's best suited for companies with limited financial complexity but needs highly capable supply chain and inventory tracking capabilities which Business One delivers.

SAP Business One ERP (Cloud) Pricing: SAP BusinessOne offers three different tiers of licenses Professional, Limited, and Starter.   

  • Professional: $132 per user per month. Provides unlimited access to all of SAP Business One’s features, including financial management, sales and customer management, purchasing and inventory control, and more.
  • Limited: $99 per user per month. Limited user licenses have limited access to a particular professional area.
  • Starter: $110 per user per month. The starter package is designed for startups and small businesses and includes accounting, sales orders, item management, and purchasing.
Most SAP Business One projects will be in the ~$75k-$150k price range for both the initial software subscription and implementation and support services.  

SAP BusinessOne Customer Reviews: "SAP All-in-one is a very good integrated Enterprise Resource Planning(ERP) solution. We are using it from one year and its provides us everything including customer management, construction accounting, and service management modules etc. It helps a lot in growth of business and its features like data analysis and user security are really great. SAP All-in-one providing a very good data processing speed and it easily integrates. " Source: Gartner Peer Insights

Dynamics 365 Business Central Overview

The Dynamics 365 products offer several pros including product flexibility, extensibility, and a vast ecosystem of VARs and ISVs that can fine-tune an ERP solution for most industries. Some cons for Dynamics 365 are that it's not as robust as other ERP solutions that excel with high volume distribution and/or complex manufacturing.  Another con with Dynamics 365 is that with its extensive technical capabilities finding the right partner to assist with change management is equally important as finding a partner with the right technical capabilities.

Finance & Operations are licensed as two separate applications, Finance and Supply Chain Management.

  • Licensing for each user starts at $180 USD/user/month for single-app full users of Finance or Supply Chain Management with a 20 seat minimum.  If you choose to license more than one application you can license other applications for an incremental $30 instead of $180 (20 seat min).

Infor CloudSuite

Infor CloudSuite is one of the more popular cloud-based ERP choices on the market today. In fact, they come in at #4 in terms of ERP market share.  Infor CloudSuite is very strong with customers within the Food & Beverage, Aerospace & Defence, Fashion/Apparel and Industrial Manufacturing industries.  

CloudSuite offers tremendous flexibility in large part due to numerous ERP acquisitions such as Baan (Manufacturing ERP) and more recently Lawson which was very popular with government and non-profits. Some clients may find that CloudSuite has a less modern look and feel with their user interface and those highly concerned about end-user adoption may find other solutions more visually appealing.  That being said, Infor CloudSuite's capabilities rival that of Oracle, SAP and Dynamics 365 F&O with very strong capabilities around configure, price, quote (CPQ), being able to quickly and easily translate a sales order/proposal into a work order and predictive analytics capabilities that help make the purchasing and management of inventory much more easily and accurately. 

Infor CloudSuite Pricing:

Infor does not publish its pricing information and licensing model online. However as with most ERP's like CloudSuite you can anticipate spending six to seven figures on your ERP software and implementation/support services.

Infor CloudSuite Customer Reviews: "Great tool! On time performance, reduced inventory levels by implementing lean practices using APS. We are able to have real time postings and financial tracking.

Gartner goes on to say...

In its 2021 Magic Quadrant for Cloud ERP for Product-Centric Enterprises, Gartner notes that, “The ERP for product-centric enterprises market is accelerating its transition to cloud deployment models.

Implementation Accelerators helped us start the project on the right track. The support Team from Infor has always been extremely responsive. Product and Development teams have done a fantastic job working on challenges we faced along the way. Moving to the M3 Cloud Edition provided us with hundreds of new features and APIs to streamline the business. What did not work well: The learning curve was quite steep for the Service Provider and us as the customer.
