A new survey found that a whopping majority of companies with 1,000 or more employees are either already using enterprise software, or planning to within the next 12 months.

That 98 percent figures contrasts sharply with the 57 percent of companies with less than 50 employees who adopt enterprise software.

According to TechPro Research, more than two-thirds of survey respondents are currently using enterprise software, up from 50 percent in 2014’s survey.

Interesting data points include:

The most common functions where enterprise software was deployed during the past 12 months are databases (45%), storage (39%) and human resources (34%). Comparing back to 2014, mobile was chosen the most frequently at 44%, followed by big data at 31% and databases at only 12 percent.

The report added:

It is interesting to note that the three least-picked selections in 2014 turned out to be the three most popular selections in 2015. Priorities and capabilities can change as plans merge with reality. It’s also possible that enterprise software offerings in the mobile and big data sectors have not been on par with expectations, resulting in growth in other areas instead.
