The push for efficient service and outcome delivery is driving software industry leaders to rethink their capabilities

The rise of a modern software industry  

The push for efficient service and outcome delivery is driving software industry leaders to rethink their capabilities. Traditional methods of software delivery - off-the-shelf and bundle packaging - are being challenged by the fast and intelligent nature of subscription business models. 

To maintain market relevance, leaders need to rethink their recruitment approach and consider service-specific training.  As new talent continues to appear throughout the software industry, so does the competition to acquire it. BigTech - Google, Amazon, Facebook, and Microsoft - have an increasingly competitive position in the software industry due to their pioneering platforms and forward-thinking structure. In turn, new talent is seeking both a competitive salary and job opportunities, with a turnover rate of 13.2% in 2018 - the most leading in all sectors - 49% still plan on staying in the tech sector after leaving their current tech employer.  

The IT market sits at $1.6 trillion and is full of opportunities for software companies willing to meet modern requirements. Software business players can set brand-new standards for the industry by considering their place within the market, company size, and capabilities.

Top challenges for current software leaders:

  • Software companies are struggling to improve team coordination and communication, an increasingly important factor for both customers and employees
  • The evolving consumer base is expecting software firms to deliver better outcomes and rapidly meet modern expectations
  • The introduction of subscription software and advanced platforms creates a gap within the industry, giving larger tech companies a market advantage
  • New talent stays within the industry, but companies unable to provide a competitive salary and modern infrastructure suffer from low retention rates
