Three Predictions for the Future of the Desktop

James Wooster Glue42 – “A major trend we are witnessing right now is what is labelled as “Digital Transition” – that is to say, the common-sense alternative to a multi-year application rewrite. The key steps are:

  1. Host the applications in a desktop workspace alongside the other (non-legacy) applications.
  2. Deploy user-behavior analytics to identify the areas of the legacy applications that are most used and/or would benefit from a rewrite.
  3. Provide external access to these areas via simple interop data-sharing techniques and expose as discoverable micro-applications .

These micro-applications can then be used as is or selectively replaced with new and/or more functional replacements. Critically, all of this can be done while preserving the user experience before, during and after change.”
