Oh, 1990. You brought us “Edward Scissorhands,” “Twin Peaks,” “Ice Ice Baby” and Windows 3.0. For those things, we are forever grateful, but as we sat in our cubicle sporting shoulder pads and bad haircuts, another trend was emerging. Computing power was expanding and hardware prices were starting to drop. With broader technology adoption in the workplace, organizations needed a way to connect their people and their processes. And so, enterprise software was born.
Over 20 years later, here we are. It’s 2013. Vanilla Ice has gone radio silent, Windows 8 is now the OS of choice and traditional enterprise software has become big and heavy. Times are a changin’ and the demands of modern businesses have, too. Now more than ever, organizations need solutions that are easy to build, easy to change and easy to scale across line-of-business systems.
In 2013, business applications fill the gaps where enterprise software fell short. They enable a new reality where technology solutions are imagined and built by the people who need them. They break through the silos that enterprise software created and provide the right information to the right people — so those people can make better decisions.
Business applications are designed for a new world and culture of work — one that is distributed, empowered and collaborative.
