Oracle vs. SAP
A recent market share analysis by Gartner showed that Oracle’s ERP revenue growth outpaced the rest of the industry in 2010.
Oracle maintained its position as the second-biggest maker of ERP software behind SAP. According to Gartner, Oracle had $2.6 billion in ERP revenue in 2010 compared to $2.4 billion in 2009. That almost 8% growth was higher than the 5.5% growth in the whole industry.
SAP had almost $5.4 billion in ERP revenue in 2010, almost twice as much as Oracle. Other top ERP vendors include Sage, Infor, Microsoft and Kronos. Overall, the top 10 vendors account for 62% of the market. SAP and Oracle alone account for almost 40%.
