Enterprise software will look much more like Google/Apple/etc. and much less like Microsoft/Oracle/Salesforce/etc. It will be beautifully designed; be ‘bought’ (not ‘sold’) through freemium models; will incorporate ‘Big Data’ to make end-users more productive; and will factor in mobility from day one."
