Enterprise Development Trends 2016

Lightbend, Inc.

Audience: Architects, Management, Developers

Technical level: Introductory

In the past, infrastructure was left to operations teams. Today, it’s JVM developers themselves being brought into the DevOps tent based on the new characteristics of the modern enterprise application, as well as major innovations in the infrastructure running it. Lightbend surveyed 2,151 global respondents working on the JVM to discover:

  • Correlations between development trends and IT infrastructure trends
  • How organizations at the forefront of digital transformation are modernizing their applications
  • Real production usage break-downs of today’s most buzzed about emerging technologies

The survey gathered responses from a diverse range of companies, with 20 percent of respondents hailing from companies with more than 5,000 employees (large organizations), 28 percent from companies with 200-5,000 employees (medium sized organizations) and 52 percent from companies with fewer than 200 employees.
