The average cloud software company reported 10% growth during the 2008-2009 recession. Meanwhile, we’ve seen the market react harshly towards companies guiding for 25% growth (such as Elastic).
We know the winners from shelter-in-place but we are still sorting out what growth should look like in the middle of the category. My guess is that 25% is going to be higher than average by the time we exit this year.
