In today's hyper-connected world, windows of opportunity open fast and close even faster. In this Idea Economy, anyone can change the world, creating an age of relentless competition. Every enterprise is at risk of missing a market opportunity and being disrupted by a new idea or business model. The winners in this world are companies of any size that embrace and execute good ideas to deliver value faster and better than their competitors. Today's infrastructure is too static and changes are too process-oriented, making it slow and complex. In the Idea Economy, infrastructure must be the engine of value creation, not the bottleneck to success. What has worked in the past isn't going to work in the future, as IT must now be able to support two operating environments.

  • Traditional applications that are designed to support and automate existing business processes such as collaboration, data processing, analytics, supply chain, and web infrastructure
  • A new breed of applications and services that drive revenue and new customer experiences by leveraging mobility, Big Data, and cloud-native technologies

To be successful in the Idea Economy, it's imperative for businesses to participate and capitalize quickly. How quickly IT can experiment, learn, test, tune, and turn ideas into value matters more than ever.
