CRM applications are a crucial element of enterprise application portfolio. Despite relatively high penetration rate of CRM solutions, the market is not maturing and the outlook for vendors is positive: investment, adoption and product revenues are all set to rise. Enterprises still list strategic issues as the top inhibitors. Issues such as solution complexity, high total cost of ownership and lack of strategic support of CRM installations are causing enterprises to be cautious when considering or deploying CRM solutions.

The market is increasingly segmented along the enterprise size axis. In such market deployment and go-to-market strategies are crucial. On-demand solutions have emerged as credible alternative to traditional on-premise solutions. Although this method does address certain adoption inhibitors, CRM on-demand alone cannot transform the market.
