Our clients and search work have seen a migration from more traditional seat-licensed enterprise software to newer innovations in software distribution models such as SaaS (Software as a Service), and MSP (Managed Service Provider). Clearly, the ubiquity of the Internet and broadband connectivity were the primary drivers. Along with these distribution models came new business models; we’ve had the opportunity to help staff at the executive levels, in markets that include mobile applications, social networking, e–commerce, and interactive video and media.
In addition, certain brick and mortar industries have been early adopters of the Internet as a distribution channel, and we as a firm have worked at the board director, CEO/C–level, and VP levels in areas including e-travel and Internet video. Both B2B (business–to–business) and B2C (business to consumer) segments are yet another way of thinking about how technology is directed. BSG has been an integral part of building executive leadership teams targeting both end-customer segments
On-premises enterprise software.
Also referred to as perpetual licensed software, our search expertise goes back to the 1990’s. While there are still applications where this remains critical (high security government, some financial services, and developing country software deployment with less reliable Internet infrastructure), most software ISVs have, or are developing, a parallel Internet subscription offering, and weaning clients off client-server driven software solutions. BSG developed early enterprise software experience in areas that include ERP & CRM.
