Table of Contents The Market. We believe our total addressable market is at the center of three large and growing industries: The overall global retail industry grew at a 4. In addition, the adoption of SaaS solutions has grown significantly, and, according to Gartner, estimated worldwide total software revenue for SaaS delivery within the enterprise application software markets is expected to grow at a CAGR of While the e-commerce market is expanding, it is also becoming more complex, particularly for global multi-channel retailers and brands trying to reach consumers with consistent storefronts across multiple channels, geographies and digital touchpoints.

Several trends are driving this increased complexity: Need to Maintain Scale and Global Presence. Companies that are unable to maintain the quality and functionality of their e-commerce sites as they expand and grow risk losing both existing and prospective consumers, domestically and internationally. As the speed, functionality and sophistication of internet applications continue to improve, consumers increasingly expect a rich, interactive and personalized e-commerce experience, such as active merchandising, social commerce, dynamic product imaging and ratings and reviews.

Proliferation of Retail Channels. E-commerce is expanding beyond traditional web storefronts viewed on a personal computer due to the rapid proliferation of internet-enabled devices, including in-store kiosks, smart phones, tablets, and other devices, allowing consumers to access information and shop through an increasing number of digital retail channels.

Integration of Systems and Business Processes. Businesses have dramatically recast their online presence from static e-commerce sites focused mainly on presentation of basic product information or simple purchasing to dynamic, interactive hubs for consumer marketing, transactions, communications and services. Businesses require robust, scalable and global e-commerce solutions that can integrate with other enterprise solutions, such as enterprise resource planning, customer relationship management, order management, call centers, supply chain management and business intelligence systems.

Rapid Pace of Innovation. As the switching costs for consumers adopting the newest technologies remain low and new shopping models evolve, the pressure for companies to keep up with the pace of e-commerce innovation increases. Traditionally, there have been two common solutions for the creation and management of an e-commerce business: While traditional on-premise enterprise software solutions offer the benefits of in-house control and differentiation through custom development, they typically have relatively high upfront costs and are difficult to maintain, upgrade and scale.


Table of Contents A SaaS delivery model can combine the lower costs, speed of implementation and other operational benefits of outsourcing with the functionality, flexibility and customization capabilities of on-premise enterprise software solutions. As a result, the adoption of SaaS solutions across industries has grown significantly.
