The times they are a changin

I have been looking through the feedback from the AGI GI in 2015 survey that we ran as part of the foresight study that will be published soon (just need to finish my third of the editors intro). One comment caught my attention “none of the big 3 software vendors will still be around in 2015”

Not sure who the big 3 vendors are? Well change 3 to 5 or even 8 and you have pretty much swept up all of the players in UK GI software supply. How many of these companies will be around in 5 years time?

To survive let alone flourish GI software providers are going to need to change dramatically to adapt to the challenges of new business and technical models. Some will be too encumbered by their legacies or their management. Will anyone rember them in 2016?

So who do you think will be the winners and losers?

More thoughts on this in the intro to the AGI Foresight Study in March.
