Each year, Frost & Sullivan conducts intensive best practices research to determine how best-in-class companies worldwide manage growth, innovation and leadership. By analyzing each company’s performance and comparing it to its top competitors, they assign performance ratings. Frost & Sullivan also looks at the key industry challenges that can be addressed by product line strategy. An effective product line strategy for the software license management industry has to not only accommodate new business models, but also readily support new deployment options, new platforms, and new product architecture.
