AMR Research released its annual report on the state of the Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) market. The Market Analytix Report: Enterprise Resource Planning, 2004-2009 revealed that ERP market revenues increased 14 percent in 2004. The report indicates that approximately one-third of the growth in the overall market was due to fluctuations in currency exchange rates.

While the ERP market has grown in revenue, consolidation continues to change the industry. In 1999, the top five vendors (J.D. Edwards, Baan, Oracle, PeopleSoft, and SAP) in the ERP market accounted for 59 percent of the industry's revenue. AMR Research expects the top five vendors in 2005 (SAP, Oracle, Sage Group, Microsoft, and SSA Global) to account for 72 percent of ERP vendors' total revenue.
