Thank you for all answers!

Straight after the summer, Statistics Sweden sent out the survey on the importance of software for Swedish companies. A survey run by Swedsoft. After the survey recently closed, we can now present a fantastic response rate.

Out of the 9,425 companies that received this voluntary survey, as many as 49% chose to help us by answering it. The fact that several thousand companies took the time to prioritize this is both important and highly appreciated. Through all these answers, we will now be able to draw better conclusions about the role of software in Swedish companies as well as about what challenges we will face in the future and what is needed to meet them.

The next step is that Statistics Sweden is compiling the answers. Then we will receive access to them and begin the analysis. The results of the survey together with the analysis will then be summarized in a report led by Martin Andersson, BTH, and Joakim Wernberg, Swedish Entrepreneurship Forum. The report is expected to be released in the spring of 2020.

Based on the data and analyzes that are produced, an analysis and suggestions will also be made on how these can support the development of courses for professionals. This is because the production of statistics is part of a larger project led by Linnaeus University, where a number of universities will develop courses for professionals. The entire project, including the statistics, is funded by Vinnova.

Thanks for all your help, now we look forward to reviewing the results.
