Software - UK - February 2017

“By far the most significant disruption to the growth of the software market has arisen from the migration of computing to the cloud and the use of software-as-a-service rather than a capital purchase. Nonetheless, the constant evolution of software capability and availability, combined with long-term trends surrounding mobility, big data and increasingly artificial intelligence, provide long-term growth prospects.”
