We are pleased to announce that for 8th time in a row, Gartner has named Oracle as a Leader in the 2023 Gartnerâ Magic Quadrant™ for Warehouse Management Systems. Oracle is positioned as a Leader in three Magic Quadrant reports covering Supply Chain Planning Solutions, Transportation Management Systems, and Warehouse Management Systems. We believe this recognition further demonstrates Oracle’s ability to deliver a unified, end-to-end and scalable supply chain management solution from planning to execution.

This year’s report also mentions: “Despite being a very mature market, recent macro factors and disruptions have spurred innovation. However, while economic and business conditions are challenging for some vendors and regions, the overall market is forecast to exceed $3.35 billion by 2027 with a five-year compounded annual growth rate (CAGR) of 9.9%. WMS offerings continue to differ in areas such as usability, adaptability, decision support, scalability both up and down market, use of emerging technologies and life cycle costs. Furthermore, customers increasingly favor suites that can support end-to-end supply chain and logistics process orchestration. Gartner refers to these areas as supply chain convergence and supply chain execution convergence (related to convergence of operational activities).”
Gartner defines organizations in the Leaders quadrant as: “Leaders in the WMS market are present in a high percentage of new WMS deals, win a significant number of them and have a large and growing customer base. They have robust core WMSs and offer reasonable — although not necessarily leading-edge — capabilities in extended WMS areas, such as labor management, work planning and optimization, slotting, returns management, yard management and dock scheduling, and value-added services.”
Gartner further adds, “To be a Leader, a vendor doesn’t necessarily need to have the absolute broadest or deepest WMS application. Its offerings must meet most mainstream warehousing requirements in complex warehouses without significant modifications, and a substantial number of high-quality implementations must be available to validate this. Leaders must anticipate where customer demands, markets and technology are moving, and must have strategies to support these emerging requirements ahead of actual customer demand. Leading vendors should have coherent strategies to support SCE convergence, and they must invest in innovation, have a proven track record in commercializing advancements and have processes to exploit innovation. Leaders also have robust market momentum, market penetration and market awareness, as well as strong client satisfaction — in the vendor’s local markets as well as internationally. Leaders understand the importance of alliances and develop robust ecosystems of partners. Because Leaders are often well- established in leading-edge and complex user environments, they benefit from a user community that helps them remain in the forefront of emerging needs.”
