Software drives the digital transformation of any company, but despite enabling revolutions in all manner of sectors, from manufacturing to retail, the industry itself is in the midst of rapid change. And while software firms are busy transforming themselves, the hardware and systems firms are also busy addressing the changing dynamics. All of this adds up to furious competition for talent and leadership, requiring software consultants who understand the sector’s changing landscape.
This has most noticeably manifested in a shift to cloud-based programs, which have created disruptive new business models, products, and go-to-market strategies. The increased presence of private equity in this space has unleashed a new wave of highly agile, innovative, and performance-driven ventures that are taking on the traditional industry pacesetters. Meanwhile, vertical-specific companies are getting into the game, converting their intellectual property into standalone software businesses.
