Smart enterprises realize they cannot be everything to everyone. They rely on
partnerships that bring complementary skillsets and the ability to manage voluminous
and diverse data. This type of collaboration drives innovation and fosters continuous
evolution, not just one-time project improvements.
Successful enterprises of the future will need to develop symbiotic relationships across
the ecosystem to exploit market opportunities and accomplish their goals. And
ncreasingly, the companies will interact with an ecosystem that is expanding to
nclude startups, academia, technology providers and platform players.
Legacy service delivery models are taking a backseat to genuine partnerships with
service providers. Services will need to be more focused on best practices and specific
outcomes, and delivered via an ecosystem. In other words, a partnership approach to
service delivery will drive future success.
