Consumerization of Development: Build-Your-Own-App Cloud Software

Consumerization of Development: Build-Your-Own-App Cloud Software

This IDC study examines emerging cloud software that helps end users build their own apps using simple-to-use configuration-based and model-driven techniques. Some of these cloud services are offered by start-ups, while other services extend or leverage existing application platforms and integration middleware into a new tier that directly supports the tactical needs of end users and teams that see the benefit of making their jobs more efficient or that want to rapidly prototype experimental efforts at digital enablement.

"The consumerization of development trend is unfolding faster than we anticipated six months ago, particularly coming out of model-driven application platforms. While all vendors in this category have significant simplification initiatives under way, vendors representing more than a third of all cloud services spending have also announced or already offer build-your-own-app capabilities. This is up from zero a year ago," says Maureen Fleming, vice president of BPM and Middleware research programs.
