COVID-19: UK industry focus - Where next for the software industry?

Historically, the enterprise software industry has proved relatively resilient to macroeconomic shocks and cycles, and is expected to weather the COVID-19 storm better than most industries. 

The pandemic is accelerating software adoption in certain market segments, for example the increased demand for virtual collaboration tools and the growth in e-commerce since the lockdown began. 

Our experts discuss the need for software leaders to consider the risks and opportunities that COVID-19 presents, and will continue to present, and how to navigate and address these in the coming years. 

“Software is likely to be among the first industries to recover from the COVID-19 crisis. Certain segments will even benefit from accelerated adoption of digital solutions by businesses to enable flexible working, social distancing and automation.”
