According to the report, “Leaders demonstrate a market-defining vision of how core financial management systems and processes can be supported and improved by moving them to the cloud. They couple this with a clear Ability to Execute this vision through products, services and go-to-market strategies. They have a strong presence in the market and are growing their revenue and market share. In this market, Leaders show a consistent ability to secure deals with enterprises of different sizes and have a good depth of functionality across all areas of core financial management. They have multiple proofs of successful deployments by customers, both in their home region and elsewhere. Their offerings are often used by system integrator partners to support financial transformation initiatives. Leaders typically address a wide market audience by supporting broad market requirements. However, they may fail to meet the specific needs of vertical markets or other, more specialized segments, which might be better addressed by Niche Players in particular.”
In addition, the report states “Gartner’s client inquiry data shows that interest in CCFM suites is increasing significantly. Many application leaders and senior finance users believe that moving to the cloud will enable them to easily avoid the challenges they face with on-premises core financial applications — such as cumbersome UIs, too much customization and expensive, hard-to-manage upgrades.”

We believe that this validates our product strategy and customer centricity, our focus on continuous innovation, and recognizes the confidence our customers place in Oracle Cloud ERP.”
