Vertically-focused companies represent an emerging approach to building cloud companies: focus on an industry and go deep to build lasting customer loyalty.The Next Wave of Industry Cloud is Data
Vertical, industry-specific software unlocks tremendous value
Emergence has long believed that software tailor-made for the needs of an industry can deliver more value than horizontal software focused on a function.
Traditionally, industry-focused companies have been perceived as “niche plays” because they tended to only offer one application, often built on top of an existing horizontal platform, in a single vertical. Not anymore. Emergence is interested in companies being built to leverage cloud infrastructure and to offer several layers of value in what we have named the "layer the cake" approach. We see tremendous potential in deep domain focus, and we are excited to help build the industry cloud leaders of tomorrow.
