ERP Adoption: The Year Ahead from Forrester

From: Forrsights Software Survey, Q4 2010; Enterprise and SMB Software Survey, North America and Europe, Q4 2009

Forrester's Forrsights Software Survey, Q4 2010, was fielded to 2,403 IT executives and technology decision-makers located in Canada, France, Germany, the UK, and the US from small and medium-size (SMB) and enterprise companies with two or more employees. This survey is part of Forrester?s Forrsights for Business Technology and was fielded during September and October 2010. LinkedIn Research Network fielded this survey online on behalf of Forrester. Survey respondent incentives include a choice of gift certificates and research reports. We have provided exact sample sizes in this report on a question-by-question basis. Forrester?s Forrsights for Business Technology fields 10 business-to-business technology studies in 12 countries each calendar year. For quality control, we carefully screen respondents according to job title and function. Forrester?s Forrsights for Business Technology ensures that the final survey population contains only those with significant involvement in the planning, funding, and purchasing of IT products and services. Additionally, we set quotas for company size (number of employees) and industry as a means of controlling the data distribution and establishing alignment with IT spend calculated by Forrester analysts.
