Description: Enterprises’ most important application development and deployment choices, which will enable digital transformation, are founded on four technology areas: cloud services, mobile services, APIs, and micro services. Mobility has changed the criteria with which companies develop and
deploy applications; application infrastructures are being revamped to support a more agile DevOps life cycle which includes these disruptive technologies. Never before have developers and IT operations faced such an array of new technologies and services available in support of their
quest to extend, create, and manage applications in order to address new demands by employees, customers, and partners.
Application platform providers have spent the last two to three years investing in technologies and acquisitions which support hybrid cloud, lightweight middle ware, sophisticated analytics, and advanced mobile app platforms, all of which simplify integration, API management, and automation for DevOps.
