The development during the last years has shown that the future is not only digital. The future will be completely different. Especially the conditions in the software industry are other, than they were in the predigital time (Hofmeister, 2013, p. 1). Therefore the recognition of future trends on time and the right evaluation of every trend are very important for every software vendor. The following paper shall help to understand on what sustainable and innovative software companies should focus on including a detailed description of the framework for innovation with the “Three Box Solution” from Govindarajan (2016).
