  • CO - C R E AT E S E R I ES: I NDE PE ND E NT SO FTWAR E V E N DORSEach ISV today faces unique circumstances. They also must manage a wide range of contemporaryproduct development challenges across a number of dimensions. To successfully transform softwareproducts for a connected world, ISVs need a flexible transformation framework in which they can“start anywhere” and easily tailor components to their highest priorities. This approach enable clientsto identify hidden barriers, reveal opportunities and accelerate a wide range of initiatives. Six commonsteps for transformation include:1. Leverage the latest in usability design and technology – The staggering growth of Smart- phones, tablets and other connected devices create a range of new usability challenges for a consistent, cross-platform experience while providing complete enterprise application functio- nality to the end user across devices. Differences in screen size, processing, power, wireless performance, gesture and new user interfaces (UIs) such as advanced haptics and more create a clear competitive need to leverage the latest in UI design and usability best practices.2. Optimize for the mobile ecosystem – Creating complete functionality in a mobile environment along with optimizing application performance over various wireless networks - including cross- platform delivery to mobile devices - can be daunting. Testing alone all the various combinations of devices, operating systems and wireless networks however is a must for transforming software for the connected world.3. Embrace traditional and “as a service” consumption models – Shifting from traditional software and delivery models to software as a service (SaaS) is fundamentally changing the economics of software. It also can open new markets, significantly reduce capital and operational costs, and en able ISVs to dramatically improve their overall business model. Evolving to this model is highly complex and a multi-stage process with a significant number of technology deci- sions to make, but clearly a must do to remain relevant in the modern world of software.4. Harness real time analytics – One of the most powerful competitive weapons in the software industry today is analytics. For many organizations, piling terabytes of structured and unstruc- tured data that changes at rapid velocity needs to be managed and analyzed real-time in a secure environment. ISVs must have a clear plan to capture, analyze and create actionable, predictive intelligence in real time. This area continues to evolve very quickly and is likely to remain a key area of software transformation for years to come.SYMPHONY TELECA CORPORATION © 2012 3

Monetize new market opportunities – Software transformation has the potential to open new markets and new sources of significant revenue for ISVs. Simply mobilizing software can help ISVs take their solutions in new markets or geographies. In some industries, client analytics can also be significantly monetized. A goal of any transformation plan should be top and bot- tom line growth and mining new markets is the shortest path to success.6. Refresh core development practices – Modernizing traditional software development practices such as agile multi-site development processes, quality, automation and outsourcing of non-core product lines to free-up R&D budgets, resources for transformational initiatives are just the beginning of core practices that may need a refresh. Some of these can also yield the biggest gains in terms of immediate return on investment.The software market is undergoing a dramatic change.
