Postmodern ERP Ecosystem

Emergence of a cloud-based postmodern ERP ecosystem.

Gartner has called out 2016 as the year that on-premise ERP implementations are relegated to legacy status. Rather than rip and replace these systems, companies will seek to wring a few more years out of them by building out a cloud-based ecosystem around them in the areas of CRM, HR, and spend management, to name a few. By 2020, we may start to see total system replacements, but this will be the most common path forward for the foreseeable future.

No one knows how 2016 will play out, but it’s quite clear that companies that focus on creating value; on maximizing resources, people and time; on pushing the boundaries of innovation; and on using data to run their business smarter will have the agility and flexibility to manage through whatever will come.

This is an exciting time to be in enterprise software. With the cloud and software as a service, we have a new chance to get it right. Buyers are increasingly interested in considering cloud options, and dozens of exciting new companies are reaching scale and giving incumbent vendors a run for their money. In this slideshow, Rob Bernshteyn, CEO, Coupa, has identified six enterprise software trends he expects to see in 2016.
