Early Cloud Adopters

Early cloud adopters accelerate past their competition.

Companies that took to the cloud early have now accumulated large stores of data, and are well positioned to use Big Data technology to gain insights into new areas to optimize for efficiency, or even opportunities to create new revenue streams. These early adopters should already be enjoying greater agility and possibly improvements in revenue and cost containment relative to competitors who haven’t made the leap to the cloud. They should be well positioned to use data as an accelerator to propel them past competitors weighed down by legacy systems.

No one knows how 2016 will play out, but it’s quite clear that companies that focus on creating value; on maximizing resources, people and time; on pushing the boundaries of innovation; and on using data to run their business smarter will have the agility and flexibility to manage through whatever will come.

This is an exciting time to be in enterprise software. With the cloud and software as a service, we have a new chance to get it right. Buyers are increasingly interested in considering cloud options, and dozens of exciting new companies are reaching scale and giving incumbent vendors a run for their money. In this slideshow, Rob Bernshteyn, CEO, Coupa, has identified six enterprise software trends he expects to see in 2016.
