Download this eBook—the first in a multi-part series—to learn what composability is, how it leads to the composable enterprise, and why, when it’s all said and done, composability will change the nature of work as we know it.
What is composability? Composability is a way of building software using “building blocks” composed of business capabilities. These building blocks—which in enterprise software are known as enterprise components (ECs)—can be assembled and reassembled with a no-code platform to create full blown software solutions.
To compose an enterprise software solution is to connect and combine ECs without code to create a multifaceted tool that manages, orchestrates, & streamlines part of or the entirety of a business process. This is similar to how developers compose solutions using open source components, or how kids compose complex structures using pre-built Lego blocks.
One can build many different kinds of solutions via composable techniques. But so, too, can organizations themselves in effect become composable. Gartner defines a Composable Enterprise as an organization that can innovate and adapt to changing business needs through the assembly and combination of packaged business capabilities—or, ECs. A Composable Enterprise is one in which all personnel who possess the ambition to be technologically creative are empowered with the ability to be technologically creative.

Composability expands the pie of who can deliver software, reducing reliance on limited development resources, and empowering every team internally with the ability to operate in a true agile fashion.
Composability better integrates IT and the business, and enables software to be more modular—and thus more easily integrated, reused, customized, and personalized. This empowers IT to extend bespoke solutions with tools that can be reused in different ways across the organization.
The capabilities required of composability all exist. (An RPA bot would make an excellent EC, as would APIs and AI.) Composability platforms like Tonkean, meanwhile, allow developers to curate ECs, and provide nontechnical teams a no-code solutions studio via which to compose software.
