Worldwide Application Platform and Application Platform as a Service Forecast, 2018–2022

This IDC study provides a five-year forecast for the application platform and application platform as a service market."While last year's forecasts held up well, we are entering a period of uncertainty because it isn't clear yet how enterprises will choose to deploy custom applications in containers. And it also isn't clear yet how that will impact spending in public cloud and maintenance spending for app servers," according to Maureen Fleming, program vice president of IDC's Integration and Process Automation research program. "Feature gaps in model-driven platforms, improved utilization rates, and efficiency in app servers all signal softness, but new deployment options will drive new demand and new opportunities for vendors to fulfill that demand."
