Software, Systems and Services

Every digital transformation depends on software to become a reality. But even as software enables revolutions in sectors from manufacturing to retail, the software industry itself is in the midst of rapid change. The shift of the entire industry to the cloud brings disruptive new business models, product, and go-to-market strategies. The increased presence of private equity in the space has unleashed a new wave of highly agile, innovative, and performance-driven ventures that are taking on the traditional industry pacesetters. And vertical-specific companies are getting into the game, converting their intellectual property into stand-alone software businesses. While software firms are busy transforming themselves, the hardware and systems firms are also busy addressing the changing dynamics. The advent of the cloud, software-defined everything, and the emergence of hyperscale players have fundamentally changed the landscape, forcing incumbents to transform core businesses and build new business and operating models. All of this adds up to a furious competition for talent and leadership.  

Egon Zehnder’s Software, Systems and Services Practice gives our clients — whether public, private, or private-equity-backed — an advantage in the talent marketplace.
