Group Chief Executive, Accenture Technology Services
Software is a disruptive force in every industry
Software is now a basis for differentiation and innovation. It's a channel to new services and revenue streams, seamless customer experiences and expansion into new markets. More than ever, your software strategy is your business strategy. The ability to roll out business capabilities continuously will be the difference between companies that stagnate and ones that evolve.
Are you ready for the high-velocity, software-driven world?
New technologies are accelerating the pace of business. But existing IT strategies lag behind. Companies need to fundamentally redefine the business of applications.
IT operations overshadows innovation
Cross Industry: IT Spending to Run, Grow and Transform the Business for 2013
Three new application strategies
to shape your future
To compete with agility and speed, companies can no longer afford massive, multi-year system implementations.
Liquid applications are assembled leveraging modular architectures, next-generation integration techniques and a cloud-first, mobile-first mindset.
Adopt new development approaches that incorporate smaller, reusable components to continuously deliver software.
To manage growing volume, velocity and complexity, and to maximize the business value of internal and external data, companies need to harness software intelligence.
Intelligent applications offer three critical capabilities—intelligent automation, integrated analytics and self-governance.
Embed intelligence everywhere to automate routine tasks, improve business processes through integrated analytics and teach applications to act.
To grow revenue and defend their market position, companies must open new dimensions of application connectivity—creating new competitive frontiers with software.
Connected applications provide companies with the technical means to interface with business partner and customer ecosystems, and with the Internet of Things.
Rewire for the borderless business by introducing new ecosystem strategies, designing applications for resiliency, and integrating information and operational technologies.
When software is a product of the company
Business strategy and application strategy are defined jointly and continuously, supported by new planning processes. Business needs IT to ensure the company’s software products are market relevant. IT needs business to identify new markets where they can introduce software products.
Leap ahead of the competition by developing talent in new areas
