Enterprise Software Market Trends and Forecasts to 2021

Enterprise software is undergoing one of its most exciting - and frustrating - phases of development. This report provides analysis of the changes and challenges impacting the UK enterprise software sector and includes market size and forecast data for the period to 2021. 

Achieving the digital business ambitions enterprises are grappling with is pushing software to break all manner of boundaries and changing the very structure of the market. There is  inexorable SaaS adoption, the shift towards insight and data driven interfaces via AI/machine learning, applications as malleable services and technology stacks, and widely connected platforms and ecosystems. These developments create new possibilities but also bring new levels of complexity. And they are driving enterprises to reassess their relationship with suppliers.

As enterprises explore digital prospects they expect more from their suppliers  which is pushing software suppliers outside their comfort zones and deeper into areas such as component lifecycle management, and data strategy and management. And as connected business operations don’t ‘see’ the environment as discrete functions, the boundaries between software and business processes and infrastructure continue to break down too.

These are some of the issues and implications covered by this extensive report.
