Software-as-a-service has and will continue to solve many business problems. It will also uproot how businesses sell and deliver “things,” such as flowers, music, and cab rides to consumers through downloads or a mobile app.
In 2011, venture capitalist Marc Andreessen predicted, “Software is eating the world.” Five years later, we know software rules everything around us.
In an article published on telecomreseller.com, Re-Imagining Business in 2016 and Beyond: “Everything-as-a-Service“, writer Dean Douglas envisions 2016 will have companies that sell products will have to reimagine consumption models and how they do business. More specifically, low-to-no-touch services that rely on mobile apps will find a way to develop an even greater and more loyal following among consumers. Douglas explains why he expects such a shift in 2016:
The mobile-first and on-demand economy has flipped our consumer mindset, as smartphones have become mini marketplaces in our pockets. Buyer expectations are increased. Instant gratification is a primary concern for business. Selling and delivery models have greatly changed, so customers can receive what they want immediately, or with a click of a button. Our personal lives are completely altered with these new expectations. In fact, these trends have instrumentally impacted B2B solutions. Everything-as-a-Service is uprooting the UCC market and how business is conducted in 2016.
As the business world becomes more digitally based, offices as we know it will also transition. Four walls will no longer define where and how we do work, which is why technologies such as VoIP phone systems will continue to make enormous strides in 2016 and beyond.
