As business needs change, organizations must be able to deliver innovation quickly and adapt applications dynamically — reassembling capabilities from inside and outside the enterprise. To do this, organizations must understand and implement the “composable enterprise.”
A composable enterprise is an organization that delivers business outcomes and adapts to the pace of business change. It does this through the assembly and combination of packaged business capabilities (PBCs). PBCs are application building blocks that have been purchased or developed.
Application leaders seeking to kick-start efforts to turn an organization into a composable business should:
- Enforce composable application design by ensuring application development teams use available external and internal API products as precursors of PBCs
- Educate your teams about how to exploit existing applications and platforms for composability by using application APIs and low-code development and integration platforms
