This IDC Survey illustrates application services adoption and maturity levels within the enterprise for 2019. The document contains data from IDC's Application Services Survey, which was completed in December 2018. IDC's Worldwide Application Lifecycle and Cloud Services practice conducted this survey to understand enterprise interests in and perceptions for services around application modernization, DevOps, PaaS, artificial intelligence in application life-cycle management, testing, and hosted application management. The overall goal of the survey was to identify how organizations have been utilizing and will utilize more progressive approaches to application life-cycle management today and in the future as well as how they will leverage new technologies to aid them in their transformations.
"Application services providers must understand how organizations are approaching application life-cycle management to be well positioned to support evolving customer needs and establish and maintain deeper customer relationships," explained Pete Marston, Worldwide Application Lifecycle and Cloud Services.
