Quidgest mentioned in Gartner’s Example Composable Vendor list
Quidgest was named as an example composable vendor in the latest 2021 Gartner Innovation Insight paper for Application Composition Technology (1) – the technology that can deliver greater organizational agility and innovation.
The global research and advisory firm indicates that, “by 2023, 60% of mainstream organizations will list composable enterprise as a strategic objective and will use an increasing number of packaged business capabilities (PBCs).”(2)
Such interest follows the burden full-scale applications – such as traditional ERPs and CRMs – pose to organizations. Their size, complexity, inflexible user experience, and internal entanglement result in high costs, customized applications that are difficult to maintain, and, most importantly, slow innovation. All this adds up to a monolithic effect that acts as a barrier to an effective digital transformation and composable enterprise.
Opposed to this bulky reality, composable solutions meet the business needs embodied by their multi-experience interfaces and take advantage of an advanced set of technologies.
According to Gartner, this approach has four main benefits
1. Collaborative composition
It provides a foundation for teams of business and IT people (whether these are fusion teams or otherwise) to collaboratively work together in initiatives around composable business applications.
2. Business agility
Different teams and personas can quickly develop new applications by reusing PBCs, full applications, process models, user experience (UX) elements, and other components available. This will dramatically accelerate time to value for innovations and increase business agility.
3. Managed tracking, governance, and operations
Enabling teams and individual users to compose and customize applications poses formidable governance and operational challenges. Therefore, the composition technology set must include functionality that enables curators to track teams’ activity; enforce governance, security, and compliance policies; and put in place integrated administration, monitoring, and management.
4. Support for product-centric application delivery
In product-centric delivery, individual business capabilities are released and maintained independently of the rest of the application. Well-designed PBCs maximize autonomy by encapsulating the full life cycle of the business entities they represent, and by minimizing external dependencies. Having autonomy of PBCs supports product-centric delivery by reducing component change and replacement friction.” 
Despite the benefits, only a handful of organizations, such as Nestlé, Air France, KLM, Nordstrom, City of Antwerp, are implementing composability. To these, we can add the long list of Quidgest’s clients – we have been developing composable technology for more than 30 years now, and all of our clients were early adopters of this approach.
