Panorama Consulting Solutions developed the 2017 Top 10 ERP Systems Rankings Report

Top 10 des Systemes ERP 2017

Finding the right enterprise technology for your organization

begins by defin­ing a long list of poten­tial ven­dors. With more than 250 sys­tems to choose from, this task can be daunt­ing. The good news is that there are many options to choose from. The bad news is that the pletho­ra of options means you risk choos­ing the wrong solu­tion. We hope that this report will help you nav­i­gate at least some of the options as you pur­sue dig­i­tal transformation.

Panorama Consulting Solutions developed the 2017 Top 10 ERP Systems Rankings Report

to iden­ti­fy the top ERP sys­tems based on mar­ket share, imple­men­ta­tion cost, imple­men­ta­tion dura­tion, ben­e­fits real­iza­tion and soft­ware func­tion­al­i­ty. To ensure that the find­ings are as accu­rate as pos­si­ble, data was gath­ered from Panorama’s annu­al bench­mark sur­veys between Sep­tem­ber 2012 and Feb­ru­ary 2016. A total of 1,660 respon­dents com­plet­ed the sur­veys upon which this data is based. Func­tion­al­i­ty data was gath­ered from ven­dor demo scores from Panora­ma clients.


Panora­ma deter­mined ven­dor rank­ings by first deter­min­ing mar­ket share. The ven­dors that ranked in the top ten for mar­ket share were then ranked accord­ing to the fol­low­ing cri­te­ria to arrive at an over­all score for the final deter­mi­na­tion of “The Top 10:”

  • Mar­ket Share — We eval­u­ate how many respon­dents select­ed and pur­chased each of the sys­tems. We assign a mar­ket share per­cent­age based on the fre­quen­cy of one sys­tem being select­ed over anoth­er. This has the low­est influ­ence in our study in terms of how sys­tems com­pare to one anoth­er, although it is the most impor­tant fac­tor in deter­min­ing which ven­dors make the top 10 list in the first place.
  • Cost as Per­cent of Rev­enue — We assess the total cost of own­er­ship for each sys­tem in the top 10. We nor­mal­ize these costs to account for the fact that larg­er orga­ni­za­tions are more like­ly to imple­ment cer­tain systems.
  • Aver­age Time to Imple­ment — We look at how long the aver­age orga­ni­za­tion takes to imple­ment each sys­tem. We also weight­ed these scores to nor­mal­ize for orga­ni­za­tion size.
  • Aver­age Panora­ma Client Func­tion­al Scores — Each year, we con­duct ERP soft­ware eval­u­a­tions for dozens of clients through­out the world. We cap­ture func­tion­al rat­ings of each of those sys­tems in our ERP ven­dor database.
  • Aver­age Pay­back Peri­od — Final­ly, we quan­ti­fy the aver­age time it takes orga­ni­za­tions to real­ize 100-per­cent of expect­ed busi­ness benefits.
