Czech enterprise app market grew 24% in 2005

Czech market for enterprise application software (EAS) expanded by more than 24% in 2005 to surpass $105 million in license and maintenance revenue, IDC says. Vendors benefited from the thriving economy, with the top 5 enjoying revenue surges of between 15% and 60%. SAP again dominated the Czech EAS scene, capturing more than half the market. However, other top vendors managed to eat away at SAP’s market share, with second-ranked Microsoft Dynamics, third-ranked LCS, and fourth-ranked QAD all outperforming SAP (and the total market) in terms of revenue growth. Fifth-ranked Oracle also experienced healthy growth. Together, the top 5 vendors accounted for nearly 78% of the market.
