Thanks to open source, the Cloud and API's, it is easier than ever before to build software. As a result, competition is tough, prices are under pressure.
Stop building software, start building a service.
To make the most out of a digital service, you'll want to service a large customer base with a limited team, yet offer each customer an experience that is as personal as possible.
Why is there such a large gap between the book value of digital companies, and their valuation? Digital services build up new types of assets one does not (yet) find in their balance sheet. A strong online presence is one such asset, a loyal customer base is another.
