Stop Thinking Omnichannel and Start Doing Multiexperience

Jason Wong, VP Analyst, Gartner

Channels are inside-out thinking; and omnichannel thinking doesn't address customer nor employee experiences from outside-in. Omnichannel aims to address “where” users interact, but it does not take into account “how” they want to interact. To win in the experience economy, where engagement across apps, devices and interaction modalities is expected, application leaders need a multiexperience mind-set.

Turbocharge Your Business-Critical APIs via the Digital Integration Hub

Paolo Malinverno, VP Analyst, Gartner

APIs are ubiquitous ways to access “system of record” application data. Implementing these APIs may imply intractably complex integration challenges and impose intolerable workloads on the systems of record.

Key Issues:
How will application leaders tackle the challenges of business-critical APIs?
What will be the business value of the DIH architecture?
What will be the technologies application leaders use to implement their DIHs?
