Forrester Names as a CloudBlue Late-Stage Player

Forrester notes that “The COVID-19 pandemic has accelerated customers’ migration to digital, with B2B leaders shifting their buying preferences in record numbers. Responding to these changes, brands are transforming their own business models to serve these buyers in new routes to market such as product-led growth; subscription, consumption, or usage-based pricing; e-commerce; and marketplaces. Making these business models work means creating partnerships at new levels of scale.” As an Accenture Strategy survey finds that 76% of business leaders agree current business models will be unrecognizable in the next 5 years with ecosystems being the main change agent.
