Scaling Enterprise Software companies to international markets can be challenging. How do you assess the readiness of your software product offering and organization for internationalization? How to select core geographies to expand to? And which approach works best: selling solutions remotely, through a partner network, opening local offices or acquiring a company with a local footprint? The Performance Excellence team summarized practical lessons and described a clear, guiding and step-by-step approach for successful internationalization strategies. Together with our US team, we support portfolio companies as they expand to the US.
In the last 10 years, since the wide adoption of SaaS business models, we saw the rise of vertical software vendors: software targeting specific groups of professionals within a vertical market, for example accountants, lawyers, nurses, teachers or architects. Market dynamics differ for vertical versus horizontal (e.g. CRM) software segments.
The Market Intelligence team examined differences in market dynamics and the impact on product development and commercialization strategies of horizontal versus vertical software vendors.
