Enterprise Applications and Digital Commerce

Business interactions, from transactions to information exchange, are changing rapidly to be more cognitive, efficient, and automated. IDC believes the use of the 3rd Platform is significantly altering the use of current enterprise applications to the next generation of "intelligent applications." The intelligent applications, including intelligent ERP, will be built in the cloud, highly configurable and flexible, improving the enterprise user experience tenfold. The enterprise application research will span from legacy ERP and associated applications in finance, order management, enterprise asset management, procurement, and travel and expense to intelligent ERP and the new intelligent applications supporting the business.
