2010 ERP predictions reviewed

Following from my previous post of Panorama’s 2011 ERP predictions, I was pointed to their 2010 predictions, which were:

  1. Diligent focus on ERP software benefits realization and ROI.
  2. SMBs to get back into the ERP software market.
  3. Increased adoption of Software as a Service (SaaS) at SMBs.
  4. Lots of ERP SaaS talk, but not as much action at large organizations.
  5. Increasing focus on organizational change management and ERP benefits realization.
  6. With ERP software, it’s still a buyers’ market.
  7. Enterprise software risk management.
  8. ERP software vendor consolidation.
  9. Focus on integration rather than major ERP package enhancements.
  10. Niches, low-hanging fruit, and business value.

Which one’s would you vote as being the most accurate?
