Many enterprises' business divisions recognize that their IT groups cannot deliver on the continuously changing and growing set of business requirements — at least not as fast and as cost effectively as required. At the same time, the Application Development & Delivery (AD&D) Professionals in these IT organizations are well aware that their current and legacy application architectures have already been extended beyond their breaking point and do not need any further add-ons, overlay, or patches, but they do need modernization and transformation.

This webinar summarizes key industry-neutral and industry-specific business drivers and explains 10 key technology trends that will reshape the value proposition of business applications. Finally, it explains a reference architecture that describes the future of business applications. AD&D teams planning to modernize and transform their business applications can use this reference architecture as a target state. In combination with the 10 key technology trends, AD&D Professionals can assess the road maps and the strategy of business application vendors and measure their progress.
