In the next edition of the Accenture Series focusing on ecosystems of the future and digital transformation strategies, you will discover that the era of large and costly IT projects is over. Successful modern companies emphasize understanding and maximizing potential of modern technologies. Technologies are transforming these companies' business models and powering their services and products by employing new talents that experiment with architecture in searching for new values. The market dynamics require building a technology core that is sufficiently robust and at the same time flexible to enable a company's sustainable growth and development. Old IT approaches will not hold up in today's context and in a time of rapidly changing customer demands. The new IT and technology core is component-based and ready for rapid incremental change.
