Next Global Tech 50
We have prepared a series of research reports on the new generation of companies across several sectors around the globe. Our coverage includes 11 industries that have been affected the most by cutting-edge technology and are likely to shape the international economic landscape of tomorrow. This series is to be presented during the World Innovators Meet 2019, an annual event that gathers global leaders from a variety of fields at the heart of Beijing.
In this report, we examine several major trends in the enterprise services ecosystem. By looking into primary and secondary market dynamics, we found that enterprise technology is a rising trend, with lots of hot money flooding into software, applications, data analytics, and enterprise infrastructure. Here are the key highlights from our study.

Developers gain more power in enterprises as we see more automation solutions extending to more people across different departments in enterprises.
While open source technology is now used by large enterprises everywhere, the shift from closed-source software to open source is still in the early stage of development.
