- Software services and applications are a major contributor to competitiveness: it greatly improves operations and services, and it also allows for the creation of new businesses and activities that would not exist without it – said Neelie Kroes, European Commissioner for the Digital Agenda.
In the opinion of Bo Lykkegaard, Research Director, European Enterprise Applications, IDC - The European software industry is enjoying a period of growth despite the difficult economic climate in the region. The combined software revenue of the Truffle 100 companies grew 11% in 2012 compared to 2011-.
During the first half of 2013, software demand in Europe increased by 4%, driven in particular, by new technologies such as cloud computing, big data analytics, and social/collaborative applications. - In reality, we are seeing a boost in demand for a new breed of enterprise software, which is inspired by Google, Apple, and Facebook. These new paradigms for the software user experience are not only changing the look and feel of enterprise software, but are enabling new business models and business processes inside and between organizations. Employees can engage with customers via social communities, companies can make complex decisions on what to offer in real-time, and employees can use business applications that resemble consumer applications on a smart phone or tablet – said Mr Lykkegaard.
The Truffle 100 ranking is prepared each year by IDC & CXP Group under the guide of the European Commission. The classification is prepared by IDC analysts based on the criterion of total revenue earned during the previous year.
