Europe: Future of Digital Innovation

Software becomes a bigger piece of how every organization competes and many are redesigning the app delivery function as a strategic business capability. Organizations are transitioning to become both a user and producer of software based digital products and services but this requires the setup of a software innovation value engine. What software is, how it's produced, who develops it and how it's distributed is radically changing. In four dedicated reports this IDC Theme analyses European buyer trends, customer attitudes, and behaviors to Software Innovation; providing insight into regional challenges and guidance on investment prioritization strategies. Software innovation efforts must be built around “digital native” software planning, sourcing, development and distribution models. This research theme helps technology vendors fine tune go-to-market strategies while supporting end-users in the development of Digital Innovation Roadmaps. This IDC Theme is a subset of the European Devops, Developers and Cloud Platform Strategies CIS.
