Composable Business: Everything You Need to Know (BCS IT Now Magazine)

Share this:

What is a Composable Business? How does it actually work? How can you become a Composable Business? Why is it different to what enterprises already have?

These are questions that frequently come up and we’ve tried to answer them in an article in BCS, The Chartered Institute for IT’s magazine IT Now.

With over 60,000 members around the world, BCS is a professional body that represents those working in IT and computer science with the aim of promoting the study and application of technology. Its members include C-level decision makers such as CIOs, CTOs, CDOs and CISOs that work across a wide range of industries.

In the article, Roei Soudai, our Vice President of Products, explains that the default approach to enterprise software has long been assembling a single, large and indivisible unit of code that lacks modularity. This has complicated efforts to implement upgrades and limited the ability of organisations to adopt new technologies in the long run. As a result, many organisations have earned the reputation of being the laggards of innovation, and they have been slow in their response to changing market conditions. 

This is pertinent because the future is perhaps the most uncertain it has been for enterprises in modern history – and so enterprises need a way of withstanding the unforseeable events of tomorrow. This is where the concept of a Composable Business comes in – what Gartner defines as an organisation created from interchangable building blocks, which allow it to rearrange and reorient as needed in response to internal or external factors. Roei explains how this actually works in practice and how an enterprise can become a composable business.

BlackSwan’s flagship platform ELEMENT™ can develop AI applications with ease. These applications consist of multiple independent sub-compknents that are analogous to atoms, molecules and substances. The sub-components act as a reusable building blocks for enterprise software applications, and they can be reoriented through the use of APIs.
