Enterprise Software and Application Services Supplier Landscape 2016

Our annual research theme 'Surfing the Waves of Disruption' was highly appropriate for Enterprise Software & Application Services (ESAS) suppliers to the UK market during 2016 as they faced yet another disruptive wave: preparation for the move to data-led intelligent applications. This is emerging as a particularly fast moving wave and over the year awareness and activity levels ramped up, especially in the second half.

It is driven by the recognition that in a digital environment, data lies at the heart of value and competitive strength but it needs a new set of enablers to make the most of it - namely machine learning and AI techniques embedded into business applications, which is opening the door to new-style intelligent applications. But it is not just enterprises that are facing disruption. These developments are also causing suppliers to reevaluate their own models, services and delivery approaches, while also facing new competition from data owners and data-owning industrial suppliers who are encroaching into the ESAS market.  

The ESAS Supplier Landscape 2016 report examines how these pressures are impacting the market and changing the competitive landscape.
