The State of Professional Services: 2021

Professional Services organizations will find themselves being key drivers of services growth and success.

As we review the past remarkable year, consider current industry trends, and survey the landscape for the upcoming year, we can confidently say that the state of professional services in 2021 is strong. 

The need for the professional services function to define and maximize its role in the customer journey, and to accelerate customer time to value, will only increase this year and for the foreseeable future. 

For that very reason, we focus this report on how similar and different Services Engine companies (selling technology as an asset) and XaaS/SaaS Engine companies (selling technology as a service) are from the perspective of adoption of key professional services practices and core capabilities.
