Worldwide Software Construction Components Market Shares, 2016: An Embrace of Data Centricity and Open Source
This IDC study examines the software construction components market. The software construction components market continues to experience modest growth driven by developer needs for integrated platforms that provide cross-platform development tools, application security, rich user experience (UX) components, back end-as-a-service frameworks, data integration platforms, predictive analytics, and components for data-intensive or high-performance computing as well as support for machine learning and cognitive computing."The software construction components market continues to experience healthy growth," notes Arnal Dayaratna, research director for Software Development at IDC. "The market's growth is driven by the increased currency of data for contemporary software applications and attendant requirements to rapidly ingest and integrate real-time data into rich, visually appealing applications. Moreover, the proliferation of diverse requirements for use cases related to data integration, data analytics, and data visualization is likely to continue to drive growth, particularly given increasingly shorter development cycles and demands to bring apps to market and seamlessly upgrade them as required."
