Create A Modern Software Strategy With AI-Driven Platforms and Their Ecosystems


Out with the Old End-to-End Solution

End-to-end solutions have come a long way but are often limited in their abilities. Oftentimes organizations find themselves in a situation where their source-to-pay (S2P) software is overstandardized, creating restriction and a lack of customization. Others feel the options are too many, with understandardization resulting in mile-long portfolios of solutions and vendors. In other words, the end-to-end solution mentality must be abandoned if businesses are hoping to remain agile in their operations.

In with the Ecosystem Solution

It’s time to pursue open ecosystems and microservices when it comes to your business processes. According to Forrester, in the next 3-5 years, organizations who adopt a core solution with application and microservices plugins will be well on their way to future-proofing their business.
