healthcare, distribution, public sector,

provide enterprises with agility and flexibility to help drive performance and
scalability and assist in reducing time-to-value."
In its Magic Quadrant for Cloud ERP for

set of loosely coupled products comprising:
ERP -- supply chain and manufacturing-related functionality such as demand
management, order management, material requirements planning (MRP),
inventory management, supply chain/direct procurement, manufacturing
control capabilities, and distribution/logistics.
management functionality (those vendors that provide only financial
management as a suite are rated in a separate Magic Quadrant).
focused on indirect goods, services and capital equipment.
- HCM --
for cost management as well as staffing for operational resources.
industry-specific modules or applications including, but not limited to,
modules such as configure-to-order (CTO) or make-to-order (MTO), and field
