In a society that thrives on innovation and specialization, the one-size-fits-all approach often falls short.This is where the concept of vertical solutions comes into play, offering tailored, industry-specific capabilities that are gaining increasing significance across various sectors and becoming the preferred choice over their horizontal counterparts.
Think of it this way: Horizontal solutions are like Swiss Army knives, offering a broad range of functionalities that can cater to multiple industries. However, they often lack the depth and precision required for specific industries. Vertical solutions, on the other hand, are specialized tools designed with a single purpose in mind. They are finely tuned to address the unique challenges and requirements of a particular industry. Think of them as laser-focused solutions that cut through the noise to deliver precise results.
Industries call for specialization
In recent years, vertical solutions have gained prominence in industries such as oil and gas, government contracting/aerospace and defense, and life sciences. The reason behind this shift is simple: they offer a more efficient and effective way to solve industry-specific problems.
Let’s dive into a few examples.
Oil and Gas
In the oil and gas industry, vertical solutions like Dassian’s ERP software have revolutionized operations.These solutions cater specifically to the complexities of project management, cost control, and risk management, significantly improving efficiency and decision-making processes for upstream operations.
Government Contracting and Aerospace & Defense
For government contracting and aerospace & defense industries, vertical solutions provide a continuous digital thread of contract and program management data—from RFP inception through contract award, execution, and close-out. This integrated thread of information greatly simplifies operations and further supports compliance with regulatory business system requirements.
In the life sciences sector, vertical solutions are often used for R&D management and regulatory compliance for federally funded, flexibly priced contracts. These solutions help researchers and organizations navigate the complex web of regulations and data management. Real-world cases showcase how vertical solutions have accelerated drug development timelines and improved data integrity.
