In addition, the report stated, "By 2023, 60% of product-centric enterprises will utilize standardized ERP capabilities on a composable ERP platform."

Gartner also wrote in the report that, "By 2024, 60% of enterprise SaaS applications will be composed from packaged business capabilities that provide data, analytical insight and operational application services."
