Mediocre software doesn’t scale.
Insane clarity does.
Netscape co-founder and VC Marc Andreessen once wrote, “Software is eating the world.”
The numbers back him up. A 2021 Gartner, Inc. forecast put worldwide IT spending at $4 trillion (trillion with 12 zeros). Enterprise software alone represented $601 billion.
The world’s most valuable companies—Apple, Microsoft, Alphabet—sell software. With all the headlines and hype, it’s easy to forget the less savory truth: Thousands of companies throw billions of dollars at mediocre software each year.
