Persistent Proliferation

A decade ago, today, and a decade from now, digital enterprises will continue to face an ever scaling set needs and challenges across four primary areas:

More Content

Customers and employees alike will always need more content delivered on more channels, and enterprises will always need new capabilities in order to help democratize content creation and access to make it easy for marketers, and developers alike, to scale publishing processes to distribute that content to all channels and touchpoints. And, reuse that content and make it engaging, personalized and targeted for each and every individual need.

More Applications

Digital enterprises will need to build and onboard new digital applications and business services as markets, demands, regulations and needs evolve. Digital enterprises must make it easy for developers to build new, innovative applications and to automate the provisioning of new services with maximum security, scalability, performance and availability.

More Data

With more content, more applications, channels, devices and touchpoints, you will always have an ever increasing amount of data. Digital experiences will be 100% data driven. Every single employee experience, every single customer experience will be powered by deep insights that enable you to deliver the services, and the content, and the experiences employees and customers alike need in order to accomplish their objectives.

More Risk

In a digital-first and privacy conscious world, risk will only continue to accelerate. Managing security, managing compliance, managing brand, legal, and corporate risk is paramount. Security can no longer be an afterthought and must be in the core of business operations - of every new application, of every new experience. Everything must be trusted by design.

The CIO's Dilemma: A False Choice


Traditional Software Stacks

(a.k.a. Monoliths) don’t provide flexibility or the customizability of the innovation pipeline that’s necessary for organizations to continue to move at great velocity.

Pure Headless Stacks

Provide innovation but lack security, customizability, feature richness and scalability only put your business at risk as a standalone strategy.

DIY Microservices Stacks

Power innovation and afford maximum customizability, but run & operate costs to achieve enterprise-grade security and scalability put organizations at risk of being left behind.
