About This Constellation ShortList™

The emergence of a subscription economy coupled with digital business models drives the creation of a new type of solution known as Smart Services Digital Billing. Legacy billing systems lack the ability to support subscriptions, consumption-based models, and one-time transactions. Smart Services Digital Billing provides a billing solution for organizations operating untraditional business models. Expect Smart Services Digital Billing to support business models built on smart services for IoT, blockchain consensus and sharing economies.

With 52 percent of the Fortune 500 turning over since 2000, success requires a rethink around the core mission and business model of an organization. The companies included on the Constellation ShortList provide the key functionality and requirements for early adopters pursuing digital transformation initiatives.

“Form must follow function in digital transformation. Once you craft the right digital business models, you’ll need the right digital technologies for success,” said R “Ray” Wang, chairman and founder at Constellation Research. “As organizations implement digital programs to disrupt an industry, employment of the right tools will determine whether or not the program is successful; each Constellation ShortList guides companies to the right technologies for their transformation initiatives.”
