Executive's guide to the future of enterprise apps

Summary:Enterprise software is evolving to accommodate new business models, support a more mobile workforce, and take advantage of innovative technologies. This ebook discusses the most significant trends, strategies, and solutions.

Gartner's recent Worldwide IT Spending Forecast reports that enterprise software is the fastest growing market segment in 2014, with spending expected to hit $320 billion — a 6.9 percent increase over last year. But the market isn't just growing. It's being reshaped, with the cloud, mobile technologies, social media, and big data analytics transforming established business models and driving more nimble, affordable solutions.

Many companies are moving away from their heavily customized legacy implementations in favor of a more diverse and flexible application portfolio that allows them to integrate core on-premise functionality with specialized cloud solutions and outsourced business operations.

As the enterprise app frontier expands, IT decision makers have new opportunities to save money, meet critical business needs, and support today’s collaborative and mobile workforce. The latest guide from ZDNet and TechRepublic will help you sort out the current enterprise software trends, technologies, and offerings.
