Where is the cloud going next? A look back at SaaS 10 years ago and the shift to industry cloud

Download to read offline

Back in 2003, Emergence Capital theorized that enterprise software would move to the cloud. The first ten years were flush with companies in the horizontal market: Salesforce, Workday and Intacct all changed the way organizations do business. Now, ten years after Emergence started, we are seeing an even bigger opportunity: vertical cloud solutions. With Veeva, Guidewire and Opower, we are in the midst of an industry cloud revolution.

Don't believe us? Take a look here at how industry cloud is both similar and different than prior technology shifts, and check out our take on the hallmarks of an industry cloud company as well as the current industry cloud landscape.

  20. 20. In the past, vertical software has been a kludgy extention of the horizontal code. Customization was usually done by systems integrators like Accenture whose business models were based on one-off projects for their largest customers. Every year, a new set of consultants would build custom code extensions.
  21. 21. We all know what happens when you use spaghetti code with bad fittings, everything leaks. Customizations were expensive to maintain and prevented the true value of vertical software to accrue to customers. One set of custom code couldn’t talk to another custom project. The promise of aligning the software and data insights in a particular industry was never realized. ,
