SAP’s SCM revenues grew by almost 32 percent in 2007 according to Gartner; SAP has not had any significant suite functionality releases for the past two years, due to the overall continued transition to the core applications of SAP Business Suite 2008. In my view, this is an indication that SAP SCM customers are weighting enterprise integration and the 80-percent-is-good-enough rule over superior functionality. Oracle and JDA on the other hand present a different scenario in their 26 and 67 percent respective market growth rates. Both of these companies have turned to acquisitions to fill-in gaps for best-of breed technology in planning, transportation, trade compliance and other areas. Their strategy of offering ala-carte best-of-breed with certain levels of integration are apparently equally attracted for the market. I will go out on a limb and predict that when the 2008 market actuals are released one year from today, SCM will remain a robust area of investment, and there may be even more surprises in the ranking of the top three.
