2024 Forrester Enterpriseappgovernance Max Quality V3

Perficient, a leader in digital transformation, has been included as a company interviewed in Forrester’s recent report, “Rethink Enterprise Applications Governance: Refocus Applications Governance And High-Performance IT Exploiting New Technologies To Win, Serve, And Retain Customers.” This comprehensive report explores the evolving landscape of enterprise applications governance, shedding light on the transformative potential of new technologies such as AI and cloud computing. According to Forrester, this report “shows technology architecture and delivery leaders how to develop agile application governance that capitalizes on new technologies embedded into enterprise applications…”

The report delves into key aspects of modern applications governance, highlighting the following critical points:


Adaptable Architecture Paves the Way For Flexibility

The significance of modern architecture in delivering flexibility and scalability to enterprise applications is vital. Forrester highlights cloud transformation as a key example, explaining that “Migration to the cloud continues to dominate the enterprise applications roadmap for large companies that want to scale their operations and decision-making in order to win, serve, and retain customers in more transparent and competitive markets.”

Additionally, data federation and generative AI play important roles in enhancing the adaptability of modern architectural frameworks. We believe this aligns closely with Perficient’s expertise in cloud transformation, where we empower organizations to leverage the cloud as a foundation for agility and innovation.

Through our utilization of cutting-edge technologies such as generative AI and data federation, Perficient enables businesses to overcome traditional roadblocks and seamlessly adapt to evolving market dynamics.

Integration of Automation and Artificial Intelligence Into Modern Architecture

Forrester’s report highlights the transformative impact of intelligent automation and artificial intelligence on modern architecture, stating, “Modern architecture enables the rapid deployment of local or industry-specific instances for each business unit.”. We believe Perficient aligns with this vision by offering intelligent automation solutions that streamline operations, enhance efficiency, and drive cost savings. Our Process Transformation solutions optimize operations, while Modernization solutions improve customer and employee experiences. With Automation as a Service (AaaS), organizations benefit from dedicated teams delivering end-to-end process automation for faster deployment and seamless resource access within modern architectural environments.

AI-driven automation and large language models further enhance organizational capabilities by streamlining processes, improving user experiences, and driving operational efficiencies. By leveraging advanced technologies like Generative AI and LLMs, we believe Perficient empowers organizations to customize applications while upholding privacy, security, and compliance standards.

Evolution of Two-Tier Governance Models

Forrester emphasizes the importance of balanced governance in the era of hybrid cloud solutions, highlighting the need for a “judicious mix of public and private cloud solutions” to support diverse business needs and ensure agility. Large organizations frequently operate distinct ERP systems specific to individual business practices, and according to the report, “They might deploy their ‘tier-one’ ERP with full functionality for bill-of-materials or bill-of-process work centers and routings as well as significant modifications to complex operations; regional or international sales subsidiaries or branches might receive simpler ‘tier-two’ solutions.”

We view our expertise in architecting and managing hybrid cloud environments as a way to enable organizations to maximize the benefits of public and private cloud solutions while ensuring compliance, security, and scalability.


Emerging Trends in Work Dynamics Shape Enterprise Application Requirements

The transformative impact of AI is reshaping work structures and organizational dynamics, and Forrester’s report showcases how intelligent automation is reshaping organizations and supporting applications. For example, legacy enterprise applications are no longer sufficient for the evolving nature of work, but as the report states, “Legacy enterprise applications support legacy enterprise structures, tasks, jobs, and careers.” The scope of modern work necessitates swift human input across various scenarios, driving the need for embedded analytics, process automation innovation, and real-time collaboration.

We believe Perficient’s focus on intelligent automation and process intelligence empowers businesses to adapt to changing work patterns and drive innovation in the digital age.
