This IDC Market Perspective discusses key market developments in enterprise applications ecosystems. On March 4, 2019, IDC analysts across Europe contributed to an online brainstorming conference and explored large enterprise applications vendor strategies for incorporating Innovation Accelerators — AI, BDA, RPA, next-generation security, IoT, AR/VR, and other new technologies — into their enterprise application platforms. This document summarizes the narratives of eight IDC analysts with diverse product/market perspectives.
"The enterprise applications market is transforming from a slow-moving incremental technology market into a fast-moving, vibrant, and collaborative ecosystem. Vendors must embrace new agile operating models to thrive in this new world of enterprise applications. This discussion proves that the days of monolithic enterprise architectures are truly behind us," said Gerry Brown, IDC's CX research director.
