Enterprise software is
continuing to attract
capital—2018 was a big year
with ~150B in VC and PE
investments
Fundraising for tech is
continuing to be attractive,
dry powder is at all
time highs
Multiples and average check
sizes in private markets have
gone up across deal types
More money, bigger investments and higher valuations
• Total PE/VC investments more than doubled in
last five years
• Growth investing and large buyouts continues to see
momentum with emergence of mega funds in tech—Visa,
Thoma Bravo and Silver Lake together raised 27B in ‘17,
12B in ‘162
• Certain pockets like AI, Blockchain and IoT getting
aggressive funding
Dry Powder increased
77% since 2014, driven partially
by non-traditional investors …
Enterprise software
continues to be an attractive
space for investors …
… and big increases in

Companies choosing to stay private much longer, driving up add-ons
and buy-outs, new pockets of value creation in China and India
Despite some high profile
enterprise software IPOs
(e.g., Zuora and Slack),
abundance of capital means
enterprise software
companies are choosing to
stay private longer
As investors are looking for
ways to put more money to
work, there has been an
increase in number of add-
on and buyout deals (e.g.,
recent take-private deals of
Apptio by Vista and Ellie Mae
by Thoma Bravo)
We are starting to see value
creation and growth of
unicorns outside the
US/Europe/Aus – particularly
in China and India
Increased capital access, better recent
private returns resulting in companies
staying private longer …

Cloud strategy for enterprise customers3
• We are seeing increased cloud penetration even in some
regulated industries like healthcare and utilities
• Three out of four enterprises will be private and hybrid
• One of out five will be public only
How many clouds do enterprises use or
plan to use
• Nine out of ten customers are going to invest in more than
one cloud
• Several reasons for having multiple clouds. E.g., best of
breed functionality, managing vendor lock-in,
application/data architecture, location, cost, etc.

to 27B by 2020
We are also seeing increased

most large enterprises in the
short-medium term—50-75%

of (1) economies of scale (2)
network effects of

Given the hybrid and multi-
cloud reality, integration has
become an imperative – APIs

A top 5 CIO topic in many companies now … vendors re-engineering
solutions and building new offerings to address pain points
Data is top of mind for CIOs,
leading to spend increase
but there are no clear best
practices
To ensure location of data
storage is compliant and
include "data by design"
principles in product
development – requiring high
investments which is
creating headwinds for
expansion - especially for
small and mid-sized
software companies
New opportunities and high
growth in security point
solutions – DSPs needed to
integrate holistic solutions
Data is top of mind for CIOs …
Explosive growth in new
data privacy offerings
• 4x of number of privacy tech vendors in 1.5 years
• Market is highly fragmented
– 35% vendors offer one solution
– ~20% offer >3 offerings
• No vendor offers fully integrated solution
• Opportunity for Digital Service Providers (SI and advisory
services) to integrate holistic solutions
No. of privacy technology vendors5
• Spend on privacy likely to increase – CIOs will benefit from
best practices to manage data privacy and holistic
solutions
• Headwinds for Enterprise SaaS companies to expand
geographically due to high investments required –
especially for small and mid-sized players
Note: Cloud services spending on data centers only available for North America; NA is home to ~60% of data centers - extrapolated accordingly

• E.g., SalesForce
• Platform owners commit to treat all ecosystem
participants fairly and facilitate the economic
success of complementors
• Traditional boundaries are blurred
Platform value creation using ecosystems becomes the new logic for competition
While orchestrators have limited control, careful governance and deliberate plays – that balance what is good for the company vs. third
parties, end-users, the industry - are critical. Practice is racing ahead of theory, and pioneers who can crack the code will be
greatly advantaged
Strong ecosystems create
sizeable value for vendors and
the ecosystem1
Ecosystem builds on community
to increase value … large number
of contributors and users
create substantial value
• Customers consistently cite MSFT ELA as key
driver of cloud trial/adoption (license
portability, flexible true-up, clear discount
entitlements)
• Evangelize and build champions (e.g., hero
developers)
• Investment in Azure – DevOps, Open Source,
going beyond Windows and VSTS, multiple
regions
• E.g., Github ($7.5B), RedHat ($34B)
• Being externally oriented and to deploy
indirect influence
• Solve developer painpoints (GitHub faster than
alternatives; adds many features on top of the
original functionality)
• Continue to lower barriers of entry (AWS)
• Understand developer community deeply
(e.g., Microsoft with developers specific GTM)

100s of thousands customers
locked into platforms1
Verticalization emerging
as a value driver3
Organizations need new ways of thinking
about from an ecosystems perspective5
ObservationsImplications
• Providers leverage advantage by expanding
marketplaces to accommodate more 3rd party
solutions and become relevant across the stack
• Support integration into other cloud solutions
• Top 4 clouds will be the destination for 80% of
workloads2
• Two verticalization models evolving
– From scratch: Industry specific from the bottoms up
with a common set of shared features with fewer
customizations (E.g., Veeva in Life Sciences)
– On top of horizontal platform: Anchored on
standardizing or pooling data leveraging the
platform across many processes substituting certain
modules with industry specific workflows where
necessary (E.g., Vlocity in Comms, Energy, Health,
Public, Financial Services and Insurance)
• Early stage of life cycle with no clear winners yet
• By 2022, more spend on Vertical SaaS, excluding
desktop and employee productivity, than horizontal
SaaS4
• 150K+ customers
• 3K+ apps
• 425K+ customers
• 1.75K+ apps
• 430K+ customers
• 2K+ apps
• Dynamic: Based on a co-evolutionary vs. static
relationships and capacities
• Collaborative: Driven by novel product combos with
complementary offerings
• Influence based: Shaped by influence rather than full
ownership or control
• Indirect: Profits from system transactions or cross-
subsidies, as often monetization occurs indirectly
• Emergent: Generates and embraces unanticipated shifts,
reversals, and unintended consequences
• Network oriented: Involves overlapping networks vs.
discrete/linear value chains
• Externally focused: Focuses on activities beyond individual
company borders
• Shift to ecosystems challenges the very idea of “industry”
from the industrial revolution — a discrete set of broadly
similar players competing to produce a common end
product in a vertically integrated fashion
• Adopt an ecosystems perspective and consider the specific
strategic choices we face, based on our particular
situation, aspirations, and capacities
• 1M+ customers
• 4K+ services
• 500K+ customers
• 6k+ apps
