Vector Forum 2022: How To Become a Software Company

"Software is going to eat the world" has fast evolved from slogan to reality. Software has grown from being an add-on to tangible hardware business to being THE business. Across industries the vast majority of innovations are software-driven. Software stimulates new business models, such as pay per use and flexible SaaS. But the transformation is demanding, especially for companies with more traditional cultures. So the question is: How to become a software company? And: What is necessary to innovate our processes, competences, eco-systems, business—and culture?
