Software

At AGC, we recognize the transformative influence that recent and ongoing economic and technological developments has on the software market. In order to remain relevant, enterprises have been actively adapting essential products and services to meet the demands of increasingly sophisticated clients and customers. Given the pressure on IT budgets, enterprises have turned to SaaS (Software-as-a-Service) and Cloud-based delivery for the lower cost and on demand scalability. A growing number of organizations are solidifying formal cloud strategies as the preferred delivery model for software needs. In the future Cloud-based delivery will apply to broad computing as on-premises models become a staple of the past.

Software’s evolution has recently been driven by a number of variables including the challenges encountered when digesting the copious amount of data. An increased emphasis has been placed on software with advanced analytics capabilities, shifting the focus from aggregation and measurement to analysis, forecasting and optimization, to streamline operations and improve business decision making. Analytics are becoming democratized and are powered by emerging technologies including machine learning and natural language processing.

Organizations, which in the past were inclined to purchase costly software that promised to meet enterprise needs, often through expensive customizations, are now opting for lighter weight but easier to support configurable applications. Thus creating new white spaces for those customized workflows that facilitate a new paradigm emphasizing agile and continuous delivery of improved software.  Conscription of software is changing dramatically, as well as, with mobile platforms becoming critical to the successful deployment of both applications and infrastructure leading to whole new generation of management and security solutions.

We at AGC see these factors, among others, fundamentally changing the software industry to meet the goals of productivity, efficiency, and functionality to gain a sustainable competitive advantage. Because software encompasses a vast swath of functions in the enterprise IT environment, AGC enjoys strong relationships and deep understanding of the space which enables us to address the shifting currents of the software market to achieve strategic growth.

I want to extend my sincere thanks for all of the help from the AGC team with the exit process. AGC was very responsive, willing to work on whatever, whenever and were key to help our team get the deal over the goal line. I have already told Scott my willingness to support AGC's marketing efforts and hope we cross paths again. David Zabrowski, Chief Executive Officer, Cloud Cruiser

Fred and AGC did an outstanding job throughout the entirety of the process. AGC's ability to position and present DenyAll's story in a unique and compelling fashion was key to this successful outcome. AGC came in highly recommended, having expertly handled previous assignments for some of my investors. This was not a straight forward assignment as the accounting and the overall business was complex, yet AGC made the story easy to understand and consume, and found the best buyer regardless of the geography. It was a pleasure working with Fred and Harsh, and I would absolutely welcome the opportunity to work with them again in the future. Jacques Sebag, Chief Executive officer, DenyAll
