The past five years have been anything but calm in the once-placid global EHS and Sustainability (EHSS) software space. This market has seen a whirlwind series of acquisitions and private equity transactions, the volume and magnitude of which few would have predicted five years ago. We first wrote about this “EHS Software Arms Race” in 2016, describing how market players use inorganic growth strategies and strategic capital infusions to break from the pack in the race for market leadership.
In a crowded field, Sphera Solutions has distinguished itself in adapting to these trends and moving aggressively to a market-leading position, largely by execution of a bold inorganic growth strategy. In this report we’ll explore the macro forces shaping the new EHSS software market paradigm, discuss Sphera as an exemplar in meeting the challenges and capturing the opportunities presented by the new order; and discuss risks, opportunities and recommendations for customers.
