In addition, over the next five years, the enterprise resource planning (ERP) market in India is expected to reach US$ 341 million, according to International Data Corporation (IDC). Of this, the SME potential in India for the enterprise-class is projected to be US$ 160 million — 47 per cent of the overall market."

We have the in-country experience and proven supplier status in India to support the growth predicted by global independent research firms and our partners," said Mr. Anton Ravindran.
