Boundaryless systems are a new paradigm for most of today’s businesses. Many companies simply don’t have the right culture to partner at scale. What’s more, their legacy business processes and systems weren’t designed to support boundaryless expansion.
Both of these factors will hinder future growth. Here are some practical steps every company can take to capitalize on business innovation through boundaryless systems and convert the breakneck pace of technology into an opportunity to outperform the competition.
Break through the cloud ceiling. Cloud isn’t the finish line—it’s the starting point, with edge computing right behind. It’s the first step for capturing the value of the boundaryless future.
Design for disruption. To insulate against change, companies must leverage flexible architectures and design interoperable systems with a uniform approach to data, security, and governance.
Decouple the entire IT stack. By decoupling infrastructure, data, architecture, and applications, companies can remove unnecessary dependencies across all layers of the solution stack.
Explore new, unconventional business models. When boundaries disappear, new spaces open up to solve significant problems—piggybacking on technology advances to scale innovative ideas.
