  3. The Software Revolution Since the dawn of Silicon Valley, large shifts in the computing and provisioning of software have led to opportunities for significant wealth. But when we examine the history of large tech businesses over the last 25 years, two different narratives begin to emerge. In the first, young venture-backed upstarts offer a new product or service and experience explosive growth. They disrupt an existing industry, but at the same time create opportunities for those few incumbents nimble enough to adapt to the new environment. The second narrative is more familiar to observers of the venture capital industry. Instead of revitalizing, many of the old incumbents wither away. Today, another enormous technological shift is underway: a revolution in how software is created, sold, delivered, and utilized for business. This is the next massive wave in enterprise computing, and it has Silicon Valley buzzing. http://www.forbes.com/sites/truebridge/2013/09/17/the-software-revolution-a-sector-trends-series/
