The role of the application platform
Where’s yours going?
The application platform (as described here) has become a reality for a decent proportion of the El Reg audience, but what is not so clear yet is where it’s all going, or if it’s going anywhere at all. Simply having an application platform in place is an achievement; even more so given the concept isn’t solidly ‘baked’ yet, so the effort is more down to the organisation implementing, rather than the provider.
With this in mind, where’s it all heading? Is the application platform a start point for bigger and better things which need the application platform as a foundation? Or is it the end in itself – an overdue consolidation of technology, skills and investment to streamline custom application delivery and management?
We’d love to hear your thoughts on this, in the usual manner in this super quick poll below...
