What are you doing about the application economy?

This month’s #REWRITEChat hosted by @CA_REWRITE will discuss how companies must operate in today’s application economy.

#REWRITEChat Twitter Chat on “How to Thrive in the Application Economy” at 1 p.m. EST – Tuesday, September 30, 2014, hosted by @CA_REWRITE

Today’s reality is the application economy where businesses are being reinvented by software. Companies must find the proper balance of business savvy, software and skills to succeed.

Yet talk of the application economy could cause some to scratch their heads. While this reality is upon us, the definition of this app-driven business environment could be new to some. Still it remains certain: the world in which companies now do business is forever changed.

The application economy defined

The application economy refers to the emergence of a connected, mobile, application-based world where consumers are far more likely to experience your brand and interact with your enterprise through a software application than a live person. From desktops and laptops to mobile and cloud, applications are the key to a competitive user experience, and it is all enabled by software.

We will focus on our next Twitter chat on dissecting the various aspects of the application economy. We will discuss what IT leaders can do now to drive success across their IT organizations and enable businesses to thrive via software. The application economy is full of opportunity now that IT and the business can recognize them.
