Why Read This Report

Many relatively new SaaS business application vendors are looking to capitalize on the success and market disruption of leading SaaS players like NetSuite, Salesforce, and Workday. In this report, we identify six of them that we believe have what it takes to become breakout vendors in the fast-growing SaaS categories of finance (including EPM), human resources (HR), eCommerce, procurement, supply chain, and ERP. AD&D leaders: These vendors — Anaplan, BetterWorks, CloudCraze, Coupa, LLamasoft, and Plex Systems — stand out for their track records of customer success and market approaches to their respective segments.
