One question

Q: How will the apps organization change in the next few years?

A: The digital expression of your enterprise is what matters most, so we expect to see an increase in application release frequency—how quickly you pump out new apps to your customers. [Enterprises] roughly put out four changes per app per year on average. We’re looking to see that increase to about 120 per year by 2020. The war for talent is going to be huge. People are going to be looking for college-level graduates who understand how to tap the power and value of apps, who understand how to create apps. They’re not going to come from the traditional places. There will be about six times more graduates coming from China, India, Russia, and Indonesia. Where we go to get our talent will be very different from where we go today.
