Why every business requires a digital platform, and a Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) to deliver it

The digital age has transformed how businesses use data.  At one time, enterprise computing was about supplying Systems of Record (SoRs) to serve employees that took care of all data entry and management issues behind a firewall.  Today, customers want to serve themselves, they demand transparency, and frequent updates on the performance of services provided by suppliers. 

Few organizations that weren’t born into the digital age have back-office systems that are up to the task. A significant gap exists between back-office Systems of Record, and the IT platforms (today often described as digital ecosystems) demanded by stakeholders.

Digital Ecosystems must serve ALL stakeholders in a single integrated information management environment.  They also need to be tailored to support the differentiating qualities of providers.  This has led to the emergence of cloud PaaS solutions like Encanvas that allow non-technical authors to design and deploy applications to support their business processes and workflows that extend beyond the traditional financial system or ERP.
