Global Business Software Industry

The global business software industry covers software programs used to boost and measure productivity within the business sector. The industry encompasses basic software for small businesses (like Microsoft Office and accounting software); software for medium-sized businesses (like those that deal with human resources, client relations, field services, etc.); and more in-depth applications for larger companies (like business process management and enterprise resource planning).

Key Market Segments

The global software-as-a-service (SaaS) market is forecast to record an impressive 41% yearly growth between 2008 and 2015 to exceed $4.3 billion, up from $390 million in 2008. The market is being fuelled by increasing adoption of web-based applications, and relatively low initial implementation costs as companies can opt for on-demand applications instead of purchasing the full application license. Growth is particularly strong throughout Asia Pacific, while Australia & New Zealand (ANZ) together represent the number-one regional market in Asia Pacific. Emerging markets like China and India are forecast to record strong growth over the coming years, followed by Singapore and Hong Kong.

Customer relationship management (CRM), ERP and collaboration represent the most-used applications. Over the coming years, interest is likely to continue rising for applications like e-procurement platforms, e-learning and HRM. Obstacles to market growth include lack of bandwidth and data security.
