Abstract

The business domain of software development growth increasingly during 2018 and while software companies in Finland are taking benefit of this momentum, they are facing multiple internal and external challenges. We constructed annual software business survey for 99 enterprise to micro-size software companies in Finland. Based on our survey, software development firms aim at growing rather than improving efficiency or changing focus. The focus remains on strengthening the current business instead of aligning it with the market transition, although the lack of competence and resources is remarkable. This poster paper gives a prompt overview of the Finnish software business domain and how software companies are encountering it.
