Märkte und Wettbewerb sind heute hochdynamisch, komplex und die Zukunft von Unsicherheit geprägt – nicht zuletzt durch Covid-19 dringt dies aktuell ins Bewusstsein aller. Die Erfüllung der Kundenbedürfnisse sowie die Sicherung der Liquidität benötigen rasche Entscheidungen und entschiedenes Handeln.

Um diesen Herausforderungen gerecht zu werden, gilt es, Unternehmensplanungen und Prognosen effizient und in kürzeren Zyklen durchzuführen sowie sie für fundierte Entscheidungen schnell zu aktualisieren.

Die Studie basiert auf einer weltweiten Online-Befragung von 275 Unternehmen.

Here is some guidance:

  • If your company does not offer software consulting or solutions, and the use of one or more software solutions (e.g., BI or ECM solutions) is either part of your everyday work or in the pipeline, then please select the option "work for a software user company" regardless of your industry sector or company size.
  • Do you work for a company that offers software solutions (e.g., BI or ECM solutions)? Then please select "work for a software provider".
  • If your company offers IT/software consulting or services, then "work for an IT service provider/consulting firm" is the right choice.
  • Do you work or study in an educational institution such as a university or a research institute? Then choose "work/study in an educational institution".
  • Do you work as an IT journalist and write technical articles, features, blogs etc. for media companies? Then please click on "work as a journalist".
  • Does your company invest in companies in the B2B software sector? Then please select "work for an investment company."
  • If you do not feel you belong to any of the above categories, please select "None of the above/Other".

If you have not received an email with a link to the content after several minutes, please do the following:

  1. Check your spam folder. Did the email land there? If not...
  2. Have you unsubscribed from all BARC mailings in the past? Check this by entering your email address in the form. If the text " Looks like you've opted out of email communication. Click here to get an email and opt back in." appears below your email address, click on it. We will then send you an automated email. Click on the link in the email to enter your "Subscription Center". To ensure you receive an email with the link to free content, please select "BARC products and services". Now fill out the form again. If you still do not receive an email, please continue with step 3.
  3. Are BARC’s email sending domains blocked in your company? This could be the case if your colleagues do not receive BARC mailings either. Please ask your IT/email team to add BARC's email sending domain to their allowlist. This will enable you to receive emails from BARC. That wasn't the problem either? Then off to step 4.
  4. It seems that we made a mistake. We apologize for that. Please contact and describe your problem in detail, if possible with screenshots. We will find a solution as soon as possible. Promise!
