This IDC study offers a different perspective of the software market from IDC's usual focus on software deployment and consumption, irrespective of the country of origin of the deployed software. It examines the software revenues from companies headquartered in Europe alone. Specifically, it looks into Europe's software industry in terms of country structure, market focus, and deployment type. IDC will comment on the future prospects of European software vendors and provide actionable advice. Furthermore, the study builds on IDC's contribution to the Truffle 100 study, which is available on www.truffle100.com.
