(NYSE: N), the industry's leading provider of cloud-based financials / ERP and omnichannel commerce software suites, today announced that its SuiteCommerce platform has been named a "Leader" by the research and analyst firm IDC in the IDC MarketScape: Worldwide Digital Commerce Applications 2014 Vendor Assessment (doc #249597, June 2014).
The report assesses vendors in the digital commerce applications market, which IDC predicts will grow at an 18.8 percent compound annual growth rate for the period 2013-17, to reach $4.1 billion worldwide.
