Latest applications publications
It’s a simple fact of software life. Not all applications start life as mission-critical; but, much like our own process of human evolution, at some point in their lifecycle, they evolve to become more fundamental to the core operations and central workflows that an organisation needs in order to survive.
Initially, many software applications may be created on the basis of an initial deployment rationale for some lower-level functional procedure, perhaps for a specific line of business, or some other more comparatively lesser task.
But, in time, due to market shifts and a range of other factors, those initially quite basic apps start to become mission-critical. So we need to be able to evolve applications that started life differently if we are to ensure security and scalability.
Cloud identity access and management platform Okta has published its latest Businesses @ Work report, offering fresh insights into the new applications taking over the workforce.
As Okta is used by thousands of companies to securely integrate their application portfolios, the company’s user data provides a useful indication of application trends.
Whereas previous reports highlighted collaboration tools such as Slack and Zoom as the fasted growing apps, this year’s research suggests we are entering a new period dominated by data and security tools.
