Objectives and key results software is a goal management framework that helps organizations to implement strategies. OKR helps companies to communicate these strategies to employees in an actionable, measurable manner. The main benefit of the software is to connect the company, team, and personal objectives to measurable results. The software helps in improving the overall efficiency of an organization by improving employee focus, and increasing transparency and productivity in teams.

The concept of OKR has been around during the 1970s and since then has become an important focus for companies such as Google, LinkedIn, Airbnb, Twitter, Dropbox, Spotify, and Uber. Increasing trend of streamlining the enterprise business process is a factor responsible for driving the OKR software market. Enterprises are increasingly focusing on deploying this software in order to increase efficiency by streamlining various business operational tasks such as HR operations management, workforce planning, and supply chain performance (SCP) management. OKR software is used to connect employees to corporate goals and align them to analyze root causes behind the company’s efficient performance. The software also helps in maintaining transparency related to targets between management and employees and also to track employee efficiency on a timely basis. Moreover, increasing demand for real-time data analysis is expected to boost the growth of the OKR software market. Therefore, all these factors are expected to propel the objectives and key results software market over the forecast period.

OKR software can be integrated with other enterprise software modules as well. For instance, it stores real time information of employees and links employees to business processes to help the organization to achieve goals. Moreover, the results provided by OKR software also helps the organization in the decision-making process, which includes decisions for operational, tactical, and strategic planning. The software also aids in reducing cost, saving time, and improving communication processes related to enterprises.

Rise in IT investments is anticipated to create lucrative opportunities for OKR software vendors across the world, especially in North America. Additionally, rise in adoption of such software in medium- and small-sized enterprises is expected to create significant opportunities for key players in the next few years. However, the cost of implementation of OKR software restricts the growth of the market. Furthermore, cybersecurity is a major concern for vendors in implementing this software. Data security issues are estimated to hinder the market during the forecast period.
