Business Applications In The Cloud-Mobility Era
The rise of cloud and mobile computing has tremendous potential to drive economic growth by providing new capabilities to the modern enterprise. However, applying these new technical capabilities to business software also has the potential to increase complexity to such a degree as to substantially reduce the benefits. Model-driven approaches to enterprise software, although not a cure-all, can play a role in exploiting the new technology in a tractable manner. Despite the tendency to over hype new technology, cloud and mobile computing will substantially impact how computer software acts as a business enabler.
