Enterprise expectations from applications are rapidly shifting from driving business processes efficiently to enhancing stakeholder experience, building new business models, and preparing business for the future. Such evolving expectations need a dramatically different application ecosystem, as applications of the future are likely to be significantly different from their predecessors. Next-generation applications will be better equipped to respond to enterprises' agility and resilience needs. They will augment human capabilities, provide differentiated experiences, and operate seamlessly across business functions and the technology landscape.
