  • Enterprise Workplace
  • Enterprise Solutions Platform
  • Intelligent Process Automation
  • IT Life-Cycle Management
  • Information Governance
  • Intellectual Property Management
  • Dynamic IT Infrastructure

"The macro-trends foreshadow major disruptions in the software industry,” claims Henry Morris, group VP and GM integration, development, and app strategies research. “For example, enterprise solutions platform highlight a shift from ERP suites as the center of gravity in applications. Intelligent process automation speaks to the rising importance of operational decisions as the target for improvements in business efficiency.
