Emergence of the Modern Application Platform as the Developers' Choice
This IDC study focuses on the important components that comprise modern application platforms that are being offered by vendors to accelerate the software delivery process.
"The emergence of cloud has opened up the opportunity to accelerate the application development life-cycle process like we have never seen before," said Larry Carvalho, research director, Platform as a Service, IDC. "Containers, microservices, and serverless architectures are optimizing infrastructure usage and abstracting complexity from developers delivering a high return of investment from modernization initiatives. In this document, IDC identified an abundance of standards-based tools and services available from PaaS vendors and start-ups that meet the end-to-end requirements of today's developers, from maintaining code and supporting DevOps pipelines to automated testing and deployment."
