Application Platforms

The Current Analysis coverage of the Application Platforms and Middleware sector focuses on the market for enterprise software and services that are based on application runtime environments and integration technologies that allow applications to communicate and exchange information with back-end systems. Foundational products span software application servers, development platforms, and cloud services. These solutions typically drive developer efficiencies and increase business opportunities by supporting modern application development with meaningful content integration to increase customer services and relationships.

The Application Platforms research market is broken down into a number of functional activities and areas of expertise, covering both traditional on-premise middleware technology as well as emerging areas of services and technology (mobile, PaaS) expected to grow at exponentially high speeds in the near future. These coverage areas include:

  • Application integration architecture (ESB)
  • SOA suites for delivering agile application integrations
  • Application, Web, Portal, and Messaging servers
  • Developer-centric IaaS, PaaS, SaaS services
  • Mobile servers, development tools, and services (MEAP)
  • Integrated Development Environment (IDE) tools and development frameworks
  • Architectures including in-memory grid
  • Governance and management solutions

These services and areas of interest are typically combined in various configurations and brought to market as middleware and integration suites. Application platforms’ greatest value is in helping enterprises evolve their business applications into new markets and business opportunities. Enterprises need to extend their data reach from traditional systems into end user services, with capabilities that include Web-based services, cloud-based application platforms for reduced cost and complexity and better development agility, and mobile device application support.
