NetSuite Significantly Outpaces the Vendor Landscape by Both Revenue and Market Share Growth

SAN MATEO, Calif.—May 4, 2015—NetSuite Inc. (NYSE: N), the industry's leading provider of cloud-based financials / ERP and omnichannel commerce software suites, today announced that it is once again the fastest growing financial management system (FMS) vendor among the top 10 vendors on a global basis for the past year, according to calculations performed by NetSuite with data from the Gartner report, "Market Share: All Software Markets, Worldwide, 2014," published on March 31, 2015. 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 2014. NetSuite is also the only pure cloud software provider among the top 20 FMS vendors on a global basis.

NetSuite demonstrated significant market share gains on many metrics, according to Gartner's latest market share research on Financial Management Systems in 2014. They include:

  • On a global basis—NetSuite's FMS market share growth rate of 46.6 percent was more than six times the rates of its closest competitor within the top 10 by market share.
  • NetSuite's FMS revenue growth on a global basis of 53.5 percent was more than four times the growth of its closest competitors within the top 10 by market share.
