About the report

In this report, Gartner presents its position that the journey to composable business begins with leaders and decision makers embracing a new way of thinking — the seed of cultural change that manifests in a new character of emerging business strategies. It explains that as an organization successfully exercises composable thinking, the early prevalence of the defensive motivation gives way to the mindset of growth and the aim for more competitive and higher outcomes.

“Composable thinking and composable architecture can only succeed together. An architecture investment without clarity of the mission will not deliver the transformative experience of the composable digital business.” Gartner, “Becoming Composable,” January 2023
