EXPERT SESSION: The Five Characteristics of Intelligent Applications

November 13, 2018

Joey Fitts

Founder and CEO


Tech analyst firm Gartner has called intelligent apps a top strategic technology trend for both 2017 and 2018, and “expects most of the world’s largest 200 companies to exploit intelligent apps.” But what exactly are smart apps and how should we develop a strategy for execution?

Gartner VP, Distinguished Analyst, and Chief Data Officer of Research Doug Laney’s three V's (volume, velocity and variety) of big data greatly helped the industry communicate more effectively and specifically about what the term meant. The three V model provided clarity about which areas of big data to work on, problems to solve, and capabilities to bring to bear. With the rise of intelligent apps and services, a similar framework is needed to identify and characterize smart apps.

The Five Characteristics of Smart Apps (Five A's) will be detailed to provide a practical framework for developing business strategy, understanding customer value and productizing new experiences with smart apps and services.
