Worldwide Application Platform and Application Platform as a Service Market Shares, 2017: Mixed Results Across Markets

This IDC study provides a competitive analysis of the worldwide application platform and application platform-as-a-service (APaaS) markets in calendar year 2017."The acceleration of replatforming to portable and leaner stacks based on Kubernetes containers will disrupt the momentum for net-new development on APaaS while also accelerating the decline of maintenance spending on 2nd Platform application platforms," according to Maureen Fleming, program vice president of BPM and Middleware research. "With a greater focus on operating cost efficiency, the next few years of new spending will be about using application platforms to achieve greater levels of business automation. Enterprises will also expect greater levels of technical automation in their platform products in combination with more cost-efficient pricing models."
