Technology innovation and business disruption are changing the software market today. Cloud computing is blurring the line between applications and services, and smart solutions are combining hardware with software into new, purpose-engineered solutions. We are happy to announce that we have launched our Forrester Forrsights Software Survey, Q4 2010, to predict and quantify the future of the software market and help IT vendors to tap into the insights from approximately 2,500 IT decision-makers across North America and Western Europe.
The survey will provide insights on the strategic direction and spending plans of enterprises from very small businesses to global enterprises, segmented by industry and country. In comparison with last year’s survey, we significantly boosted the sample size this year for the energy (oil and gas, utilities, and mining) and healthcare industries; we’ll be able to provide an in-depth analysis for these industries along with retail, financial services, high tech, and other industries.
Key themes for this year’s software survey include the following topics:
And, of course, we’ll continue to ask traditional questions around implementation plans, custom development, and preferred vendors.
Clients of Forrester’s Forrsights for Business Technology can expect the final software survey data results at the beginning of November, and we will publish some of the key findings in a Q4 Forrester report. You will see Forrester’s Forrsights data pop up in this blog from time to time, but if you’d like more info right now — or want to check out some of our other surveys, e.g., on hardware or services — visit the Forrester Forrsights section of our Web site.
