Value Matrix for Enterprise Resource Planning, 2012 
IRVINE, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 01/14/13 --  Sage North America today
announced its inclusion in the Nucleus Research 2012 second half
Technology Value Matrix for Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) with
Sage ERP X3 named a Leader. Sage ERP X3 is the most powerful and
flexible business management solution by Sage for mid-market
companies and subsidiaries of large groups looking to grow a
competitive business with limited IT resources.  
According to the report, the trend toward the consumerization of ERP
comes with the need for integration between ERP and other software
solutions. Nucleus describes Sage ERP X3 as being "scalable and
flexible" with an "improved user experience" and integration with
various Sage cloud applications, such as Sage SalesLogix for CRM,
Sage Exchange for payment processing, and Sage Sales Tax for sales
tax automation.  
Through the analysis of end-user experiences, vendors are evaluated
on both the usability and functionality of the applications and
placed into four categories of the Nucleus Research Technology Value
Matrix: Leaders, Experts, Facilitators, and Core Providers. The
Technology Value Matrix measures two core attributes that best
indicate an application's ability to deliver initial ROI and,
ultimately, maximum value over time. Vendors in the Leaders quadrant
have invested in both functionality and usability features that are
likely to deliver the greatest potential returns. These vendors have
both diverse and comprehensive product offerings, which enable
organizations to maximize ROI, and the resources to help
organizations deploy large-scale applications.  
"Sage ERP X3 offers preconfigured solutions for manufacturing
(discrete and process), services and distribution. With its latest
major release, Sage ERP X3 provides an improved user experience with
Webtop (a set of personalized widgets), better search capabilities,
and extended cloud applications," said Gabriel Gheorghiu, principal
analyst, Nucleus Research. "It can also be deployed as a hybrid
delivery model, which is a combination of cloud and on premises.
These enhancements make Sage ERP X3 one of the top ERP solutions from
both a functionality and usability perspec
"This recognition in the Nucleus Research Technology Value Matrix is
a testament to our focus on the user experience and giving businesses
greater freedom to succeed," commented Joe Langner, executive VP of
Midmarket Solutions for Sage North America. "It's our intent to
provide businesses with choice and flexibility with their business
management software, and the ease of a hybrid deployment of Sage ERP
X3 integrated with other connected services makes this possible."
