Five Big Trends in Enterprise Software Development

Five Big Trends in Enterprise Software Development

Which enterprise software development trends will be making the news next year? eWeek says these five areas will be key:

  1. HTML 5 — While Flash isn’t going away completely anytime soon, look for HTML 5 to continue to pick up steam next year. “HTML5 is coming on strong as a standard, accelerated by the speed of change of hardware devices,” said Al Hilwa, an analyst with IDC. “By 2013, we will reach a point where 90 percent of smartphones and tablets will sport HTML5-capable browsers.”
  2. Web-based IDEs — Cloud development should continue to grow in popularity with players like Eclipse Orion, Cloud9 IDE, eXo Cloud IDE and others leading the way.
  3. Big Data and Analytics — “Data has become the new currency,” said Kevin Dallas, Microsoft’s Windows Embedded general manager. Look for Hadoop to continue increasing in popularity.
  4. Java PaaS — “One of the most important trends in 2012 will be the maturation of Java PaaS [platform as a service],” said Mik Kersten, CEO of Tasktop Technologies. “While the transition will be a long one, Oracle’s Java Cloud culminates key announcements around PaaS offerings in 2011, and sends a signal that Java developers [should] start considering PaaS solutions as the deployment destination of new applications.”
  5. Agile Application Lifecycle Management (ALM) – Mike Milinkovich, executive director of the Eclipse Foundation, said that enterprise developers are incorporating more Agile ALM tools into the development process.
