AWS Cloud9 IDE Breaks New Ground, Likely to See Sustained Expansion

By: Arnal DayaratnaResearch Director, Software Development


This IDC Market Note responds to Amazon's announcement of the release of AWS Cloud9, a browser-based IDE for cloud-native application development.

"AWS Cloud9 enhances the developer experience with respect to the development of AWS Lambda functions as a service while providing an on-ramp to the use of AWS products and services," said Arnal Dayaratna, research director, Software Development at IDC. "AWS Cloud9 supports over 40 programming languages and their attendant set of compilers and toolchains, and while AWS Cloud9 gives AWS users the ability to rapidly develop AWS Lambda functions as a service, it stands to encounter the challenge of developer inertia associated with their deep familiarity of other IDEs for software development."
