This IDC Perspective focuses on one of the three core pillars of IDC's future of industry ecosystems model: shared applications. We see shared applications as a fundamental building block for industry ecosystems, as they are the enabling set of technologies that power collaboration, communication, innovation, and operation.

"An important part of organizational resiliency is having the right applications that can be quickly, flexibly developed either internally or in concert with ecosystem partners. Having that external 'bench' of application development support, and ongoing collaboration with other ecosystem participants, enables companies to move quickly to meet the mission of their industry ecosystem. Software initially enables an organization's products and services and the way that it operates, and the ecosystem can further surround this with more software and services to optimize a blended physical/digital experience and provide improved customer, consumer, citizen, or patient experience," said Jeff Hojlo, research vice president, Future of Industry Ecosystems and Product Innovation Strategies.
