This IDC Market Perspective explains the importance of future proofing the enterprise application business with an ecosystem of partners. A common response in times of crises is to consolidate technology, software, and service providers to simplify oversight. But enterprises do not want to sacrifice innovation and are taking a critical look at an application vendor's entire ecosystem to discern how it will help them stay ahead of the curve. This document discusses benefits provided by enterprise application ecosystems, areas of focus to harness customer value, consideration of costs and risks, and advice for providers."The desire for ecosystem solutions from enterprise application vendors is in many ways a reflection of broader digital innovation transformation industries are undergoing themselves," says Mickey North Rizza, program vice president, Enterprise Applications and Digital Commerce. "Applications are front and center in the quest for the perfect ecosystem, and enterprise application vendors must utilize this unique leadership position to keep and gain market share in this new digital world."
