"Digital transformation has a profound and direct impact on developers and DevOps professionals, forcing them to make hard decisions and embrace still-emerging technologies," said Al Gillen, group vice president, Software Development and Open Source, at IDC. "Applications will be split into legacy applications needing dramatic enhancements and new, cloud-native, mobile, IoT and other applications that will be developed, deployed, and life cycled in radically different ways, forcing organizations to somehow support these multiple classes of applications without incurring massive internal costs."
