This IDC study assesses the state of next-generation applications, contrasts how the design principles of NGAs differ from those of current-generation applications, and discusses how such design principles will bring about a quiet transformation in the IT infrastructure and organizations that support these applications.As the 3rd Platform evolves, IDC is seeing the emergence of a first wave of innovation accelerators that depend on the 3rd Platform and radically expand their capabilities and applications. "Innovation accelerators such as robotics, Internet of Things (IoT), natural interfaces, cognitive systems, 3D printing, and next-generation security will collectively drive a new breed of applications that will transform IT infrastructure as we know it," said Ashish Nadkarni, program director at IDC's Enterprise Servers and Storage.
