Leaders are preparing their enterprises to be future ready. Whichever pathways are followed, there is typically a technology hurdle: the systems, data, and processes in the enterprise aren’t fit for becoming future ready. Therefore, the enterprise has to replatform, to get from the current “silos and spaghetti” set of systems to a set of Future-Ready platforms. MIT CISR found four distinct approaches to enterprise replatforming—building an API layer, filling gaps with a partial replacement, migrating to a new Future-Ready platform, or undertaking a core replacement.
