This report sets out to predict the future of work. It presents six trends or forces that are reshaping work, and in turn allowing companies to change the way they organise work. These external forces are: demography, culture, technology, sustainability, transport and property. Together they not only comprise the key overheads of a business, but also the drivers of change that no company can ignore if it is to get into shape as the world emerges from recession.

Modern Enterprise Software Systems (MESS) is all about envisioning, developing, managing and evolving enterprise applications to fulfill business requirements. This may entail many challenges like rapidly changing business scenario, increase in complexity, shorter time to market and business agility. In order to deal with this natural evolution, achieving modularity across MESS is essential. In this paper, we describe by way of an example application, some of the common problems encountered while delivering & managing enterprise software. We demonstrate that one of the root causes for these is inadequate support for modularity at the physical level viz. packaging & deployment.

The impact of the global financial and economic crisis on the Middle East and North Africa region was relatively mild. Lack of integration and a large public sector helped insulate the region to some extent, but now these and other factors are slowing down the speed of its economic recovery. The report examines the major factors threatening the recovery and those that obstruct long-term growth – especially non-oil export growth, which in net terms contributed little to regional growth during the past decade, with non-oil exports remaining below potential in many countries in the region.
