SAN MATEO, Calif.—April 28, 2016—NetSuite Inc. (NYSE: N), the industry's leading provider of cloud-based financials / ERP and omnichannel commerce software suites, today announced that, for the third year in a row, it is the fastest growing financial management system (FMS) vendor among the top 10 FMS vendors on a global basis, according to calculations performed by NetSuite with data from the Gartner report, "Market Share: All Software Markets, Worldwide, 2015," published on March 31, 2016. According to calculations based on the report's data, NetSuite was the fastest growing FMS within the top 10, globally, both by market share and revenue growth in 2015. NetSuite is also the only pure cloud software provider among the top 15 FMS vendors on a global basis.

NetSuite demonstrated significant gains on many metrics, according to Gartner's latest market share research on Financial Management Systems in 2015. They include:

  • On a global basis—NetSuite's FMS market share growth rate of 45 percent is more than three times the rate of its closest competitor within the top 10 by market share.
  • NetSuite is the only pure cloud software provider among the top 15 FMS vendors.
  • NetSuite jumped to sixth from eighth in overall FMS market share percentage.
  • NetSuite's FMS revenue growth on a global basis of 40.3 percent was nearly four times the growth of its closest competitor within the top 10.
  • NetSuite’s total revenue gain significantly outpaced its competitors, with more than double the revenue of the next highest gainer.
  • NetSuite significantly outgrew the market for FMS software as a whole, which Gartner estimates declined at a rate of 3.3 percent year over year.

"We believe these results demonstrate NetSuite’s unstoppable momentum and consistent high growth as we continue to outpace our competitors," said NetSuite CEO Zach Nelson. "For the third year in a row, we feel we’ve proven that cloud FMS is now and the future.”
