Where is Modern Software Technology Going & What Does it Mean for Enterprise Software?


December 4, 2013

Doug Hadden, VP Products

I listened in to a very interesting webinar from Gartner on the “modern web” describing emerging standards, tools and ideas. (See the Storify below.) This webinar covered a wide range of use cases. This adds some more evidence to a number of trends that I’m seeing in enterprise software.

  • Large vendors are struggling to adapt software to meet user expectations from consumer applications. But, legacy code and legacy methods of software development are hampering these efforts. It’s very much a “2 steps forward and 1 step backward” dynamic
  • Social and mobile applications from major software vendors are very much “hit and miss” with a lot of misses. There still seems to be an excepted notion that social is outside core processes – and that just isn’t correct
  • Legacy monolithic software infrastructures are starting to crumble as the age of cloud and API services assembly takes charge>
  • Big ERP vendors can through as much data into memory for big data processing, but it’s just noise without semantic information
