“The software market is now increasingly appearing to be economically independent, being driven by technological capability and improvements. The software as a service model, rather than subscription pricing, has classified software as a scalable running cost rather than a capital investment, which has assisted growth when other markets have faltered amid the uncertainties created by Brexit.”
