"The world is entering the era of the digital economy, where data is digital capital. Organizations need to view data as a strategic asset for creating value and competitive advantage through new offerings, new business models and new relationships," said Maureen Fleming, program vice president, Integration and Process Automation research, IDC. "However, very few companies are getting all the value from their data as they should be, as it is locked up in various applications and systems that aren't designed to talk to each other. Companies who are truly digitally capable will be able to connect these disparate data sources, pull critical business-level data from these connections, and make informed business decisions in a way that delivers competitive advantage."
Application Networks Pave a New Way for Organizations to Evolve Quickly and Innovate at Scale
Organizations are being required to connect an ever-increasing number of applications, data and devices to create entirely new customer experiences and revenue channels, especially as new competitors enter the market and disrupt existing business models. By building an application network, companies can fundamentally increase their pace of innovation. With instant fine-grained visibility into information across the application network through its graph, organizations gain deeper insights that are otherwise incredibly difficult to obtain in today's enterprises.
