Appian survey: Big obstacles to digital transformation
Vendor survey done with 463 respondants over on, good news topics:

"A lack of IT skills was reported by 82 percent; 91 percent are struggling with technical debt; 20 percent have huge application backlogs of more than 50 new app requests; and 72 per cent said they don't have confidence in being able to scale IT to meet the needs of the business."

Spring Framework Creator Rod Johnson Returns to Automate Continuous Deployment
“A typical use case for Atomist would be to run an automatic update across hundreds of repositories. Incrementing a single library version across those hundreds of products could be automated, and once each was done, each branch could be built, and the results of those builds could be reported to a developer. Alternately, successful builds could generate a pull request for the library update to each relevant project. This, said Johnson, keeps developers from running around, updating dozens of projects individually by hand and testing the successes one at a time.”

Gartner Says Demand for Enterprise Mobile Apps Will Outstrip Available Development Capacity Five to One
"Organizations increasingly find it difficult to be proactive against competitive pressures, which is resulting in their mobile apps becoming tactical, rather than strategic," said Mr. Leow. "We're seeing demand for mobile apps outstrip available development capacity, making quick creation of apps even more challenging. Mobile strategists must use tools and techniques that match the increase in mobile app needs within their organizations." And: "Gartner believes organizations will improve their in-house mobile development skills over time, but currently only 26 percent of organizations are adopting an in-house-only development approach, while 55 percent are successfully delivering apps using mixed sourcing."

Why Did Docker Catch on Quickly and Why is it so Interesting? | The New Stack
Excellent piece. Too bad my folks didn’t get around to writing it first, but at least now it doesn’t need to be written. The insights in developer relations are great. At a meta-level: It’d be interesting to “crowd source” analyst research agendas by just bundling up pieces like this and original work and having that be your “corpus” of research. It’s what Techmeme does for news (no original content though). That’s kind of what InfoQ does for appdev and I think it works kind of well there (I find video a bit too oblique, but you could do 500-1,000 word summaries a a la Blinkist on all the conference talk videos InfoQ has - that’d be a good premium service). Probably a good business too. I suppose it’s the infamous HuffPo and Forbes model, but applies to IT industry analysis.

Pivotal shows good momentum in helping build 'programmable businesses'
I wrote a brief update on Pivotal recently, [the full report is available for clients]. Here’s the 451 Take: Pivotal’s connection to the so-called ‘EMC Federation’ gives it an expansive portfolio, but we believe that Pivotal’s core message reduces to, “Hello, Global 2000 enterprises. The middleware stacks you use to build and run your enterprise applications are not so good. Ours is better, so you should use it for new applications development and to rewrite old applications.” The growing acceptance of Cloud Foundry as a PaaS standard is proving to be helpful in realizing this vision, as well as Pivotal’s deep assets in data and ‘big data’ management. Pivotal will need to focus more on articulating the company’s identity and explaining how its broad array of middleware helps solve the business problems that digital enterprises are experiencing when converting to ‘programmable businesses.’ If you’re not a client, apply for a trial to check out more.

Tasktop receives $11m series A to fund its ALM and devops integration ambitions
One of the companies I’ve followed closely over the years took funding recently, for the first time. This short Analyst Note covers the funding, including this quick market overview: We expect to see more interest in the development space, driven not only by devops but also by companies’ increasing desire to use custom-written software to expand their business. Vendors like Atlassian are also riding this wave – Atlassian reported fiscal 2013 revenue of $149m for its ALM offerings. The developer tools space should be fun over the next year. The most recent, fuller report we did TaskTop is from April.

bcg.perspectives - Delivering Digital Infrastructure
Internet-based economic activity is expected to reach $4.2 trillion in the G-20 nations by 2016, or more than 5 percent of GDP, and this does not include a whole universe of pursuits not captured in GDP figures. The digital economy is growing at 10 percent a year, significantly faster than the economy as a whole. About 2.5 billion people are connected to the Internet today, a third of the world’s population; there are projected to be about 4 billion users by 2020, or more than half the global population.

Tasktop Sync 3.5 adds Agile and devops integrations, foreshadowing an ALM system of record
Version 3.5 of TaskTop is a dot release with some fun stuff scurrying around in the background. Here’s the 451 Take: Tasktop has done well in recent years as a pragmatic way to connect together disparate silos in the application lifecycle development space. The approach Tasktop is taking to better unify the process of getting software out the door is unique and encouraging, as its wide array of OEM partners attests. These partners should, ostensibly, be doing what Tasktop does on their own, but instead they partner with the small company. Tasktop’s mission is simple in concept, but complex in implementation: instead of requiring different teams in large companies to use the same tool to keep the ALM data and process properly synchronized across silos, Tasktop Sync acts as sort of ALM-integration and extract, transform and load (ETL) middleware to keep all the silos up to date. This current release is emblematic of that task in that it adds support for additional tools and rolls out some of the initial end-to-end reporting done over all the different tools and teams. Devops hasn’t progressed far enough to need something like Tasktop, but as we noted in our coverage of Sync 3.0, it’s starting to smell more and more like DevOps when Tasktop comes into the room. Perhaps it’ll help hammer out the idea of ‘BizDevOps’ along with other vendors that are looking to more tightly couple business stakeholders and process to the nascent devops tool chain. 451 clients can, of course, read the full report. You can apply for a trial as well if you want to experience the full splendor available behind the paywall.

People are much more interested in running PaaS in-house than not in-house. We see a lot of interest in PaaS but very little interest necessarily in running PaaS on cloud infrastructures. I think broadly, this is going to be much more of the era of private cloud infrastructure as a service, more so than PaaS. PaaS is still in its early days, much earlier days than IaaS.

Atlassian bundles ALM components around the popular git version control system
Atlassian released an ALM bundled centered around git recently. I wrote up a report on that release, git in broader terms, and of course profiling the current state of Atlassian. Here’s the 451 take: Git Essentials is a natural bundling move by Atlassian. The company has long been expert at tracking mainstream needs for software development teams and acted as a sort of safety bumper around the leading edge of developer practices and technologies: taking and creating early adopter technologies and making them enterprise ready. Competition in the ‘enterprise git’ market is just beginning, and this is a wise time to enter with a larger offering than the stand-alone Stash and Bitbucket git version control product and service. Atlassian’s popularity and growth (with $149m in FY 2013 revenue) is evidence of both the company’s momentum and the growing interest in the application development space. 451 clients can read the full report, or you can lead-gen yourself for a 30 day trial.

[T]here will be classes of developers that go after Git and they’ll love Git for what it allows them to do which is to stay off the radar until their tiered promotion gets it ultimately to visibility, but there will be other shops that want to have that visibility the entire time and their compliance or governance or whatever the management driven stuff that is required will keep it around.

Why software development is different now
One of the first pieces I’ve written at the new analyst shop is now free, thrust out beyond the 451 paywall. I’m rebooting the application development coverage at 451 that’s been dormant for around 5 years. Don’t read that wrong, various aspects have been covering it here and there, but there hasn’t been an analyst focused on it. As such, I wanted to layout my “state of the union” of development. Not too long ago, when Web applications dominated the software-development world, a developer’s primary decision was choosing a framework from the multitude of Web frameworks fine-tuned in the 2000s. Three forces have been changing that status quo in recent years: new devices and client delivery mediums, fragmentation of frameworks and platforms, and a renewed focus on design driven by catering to end users – not just IT buyers. If I wanted to really summarize it, I’d say it was fragmented: more frameworks, delivery options, and end-clients than were available when I was a young programmer. It used to be just .Net and Java, desktop and web. Now there’s all sorts of languages, all sorts of ways to deliver software (through public cloud, traditional, as heavy GUIs, etc.), and all sorts of “screens” (as Adobe used to put it). In addition to describing these “three forces,” I also wanted to point to how they might effect various folks in the tech ecosystem, like ISVs, service/cloud providers, and regular old companies inching into the whole “software is eating the world” jag. Anyhow, tell me what you think. I’m hoping to evolve these ideas and explain-out the little nooks and crannies ongoing.

Microsoft takes fight to Amazon on raft of cloud announcements • The Register
"70 percent of the Azure footprint is [now] IaaS, which is tremendous," Nadella said, implying both that customers had a huge hunger for IaaS, and the potentially small size of the PaaS business.
