Developers: Driving the Future of Digital Innovation
This IDC Perspective considers the changing nature of development and the transitions of organizations from a role of software consumer, adding the roles of software development and software distribution to their historical role of sourcing and consuming software.
"We are entering a brave new world where developers become the center of initiatives that will define the winners and the losers of the next generation of businesses," said Al Gillen, group VP, Software Development and Open Source, IDC. "All the most popular industry buzzwords, including cloud, containers, open source, DevOps, microservices, and serverless, will become real things that become part of the daily routine for organizations that successfully negotiate this transition."
