Digital business models are proving to be incredibly disruptive. Industry boundaries are blurring. Embedded software is changing everything. Customers are demanding solutions that are highly scalable, secure, robust, and always on. The commerce experience must be seamless, and the technology powering is all must be invisible. Meeting these expectations demands new strategies and services for consumption, delivery, and integration that reduce risk, add value, and can be sustained beyond prototypes.

Driven by hyperconnectivity and the science of Big Data, the Internet of Things (IoT) is helping business models adapt to this new environment. Flexible and integrated business process built on a digital core of enterprise resource planning (ERP) solutions is the first step to running in real time and integrating predictive analytics, Big Data, and mobile technologies. Information is analyzed quickly with in-memory systems – enabling people to detect trends and work smarter and more efficiently.

How can companies embrace these capabilities to meet their unique innovations and industry practices? Recent research reveals that simple, seamless, and personalized customer engagements is the best approach. According to a recent Ovum study, the most successful long-term strategies consider current and future IT landscapes and optimize a path that includes IoT-enabling applications, platform, and services.
