I had not heard of YonYou before which “was founded in 1988 and is now recognized as a leading enterprise management software, solutions and cloud service provider in China and the Asia Pacific region” according to the company website. Ditto re Totvs and according to their website – “TOTVS is a software, services and technology company. An absolute leader in Brazil with 55.4% of market share and also in Latin America with 35%, (according to Gartner institute), it is the biggest software company in emerging countries and the 6th in the world.” Who knew? Another interesting finding was “The fastest growing ERP vendors in 2012 include Workday, Cornerstone OnDemand, WorkForce Software, Ventyx and NetSuite.”
