About This Report

Business leaders in nearly in every industry recognize the need for their business to react with the speed and agility of a software startup in order to survive. Blockbuster was bankrupted by Netflix. The entire hotel industry was disrupted by AirBnb. The phrase, “You’ve been Ubered,” will likely become part of our lexicon to describe industries that have been blindsided by the future.

In August 2015, we launched Reactive Revealed, an anonymous survey designed to understand experiences, opinions and technologies related to Going Reactive. To inspire respondents to share, we made a financial donation to support to Devoxx4Kids, an organization dedicated to getting the next generation of young geeks excited about programming. More than 3,000 people responded.

Our goal was to understand the journey of Going Reactive and uncovered some interesting adoption trends around microservices and Fast Data along the way. Here is what we discovered, in a nutshell:

  • Reactive system adoption is going mainstream
  • Reactive adoption is being driven by two key technology trends: Microservices and Fast Data
  • Microservices and Fast Data users are rallying around a preferred group of tools and technologies.
