Constantly connected customers, empowered by broadband connectivity and millions of apps, have turned the tables on business. “In order to compete, firms must keep a close eye on trends changing the way that they should think about digital convergence, digital experience delivery, and how they interact with their environment through APIs,” notes Principal Analyst Brian Hopkins. “The pace of digital disruption makes the future less predictable, but firms must also deal with the fact that information has never been more available and the pressure on IT to be more open has never been higher.”
