The Software Inflation Rate in 2021: 1.4%

Matthew Guay examines the software inflation rate in 2021:
"After a decade where software got 62% more expensive...software prices, largely, haven't inflated nearly as much as the broader market this year."
There are some good insights here and observations about services and software getting more expensive, even if it was only a slight increase in the case of MailChimp and SurveyMonkey. It's getting harder for larger companies to determine the cost of software because the software aimed at them "increasingly hides pricing, requiring a sales call first before sharing an estimate of what it'd cost for your team."
