Why focus on software innovation?
Software is part of everything. It differentiates products, services, and business models – and is increasingly part of our systems and physical infrastructure. Yet few organizations have the software development and delivery skills and systems that are necessary to make it a competitive advantage.
Value creation in every industry continues to shift towards software. Software innovation is becoming synonymous with business innovation. For example: global mobile data traffic is expected to increase 18-fold over the next five years to 10.8 exabytes per month. Today, electronics drive 80 percent of the automotive industry’s functional innovation. Software is the key to most of it. Yet with these opportunities are challenges and we need to make sure we can accelerate delivery while still maintaining appropriate controls. Managing software innovation is critical to this process.
