AUSTIN, Texas, Nov. 26, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- SoftServe, a leading global software application development and consulting company, together with ExecutiveBrief, has completed its annual Software Development Trends Survey for the 5th consecutive year.

Some of the highlights of the 2014 survey include:

  • In comparison with the previous year, more companies are working on defining their data analytics and data science strategy. This explains the growing need for adaptive and agile Business Intelligence tools and applications.
  • With the disruptive convergence of physical and digital worlds, many companies report they are finding Mobile UX, Solution Architecture and Connection to legacy Enterprise systems the most challenging elements of mobile solutions development. Mobile UX rose as an identified challenge.
  • The exposure of data to recent frequent security breaches makes security a huge concern in the software development process. Most respondents indicated an interest and need for third-party assistance to load test security solutions, validate security measures, and develop sophisticated security measures to protect their data.
  • As mobility increasingly becomes a key direction of software developers, companies are putting less effort into defining mobility strategies and are actively engaging in developing and implementing innovative mobile applications.

SoftServe's Software Development Trends report also notes the continuous growth of third-party relationships in software development, with 70% of surveyed organizations engaging in outsourcing at some level, as well as providing clear evidences of increased interest and participation in outsourcing as part of a strategic business model.

"With mobile technologies transforming all aspects of business and social interaction, more and more of our customers are looking to us to help them with their mobile UX design, so it's no surprise this was identified as a concern across the industry," said Juan Turruellas, Executive Vice President World Wide Sales and Marketing at SoftServe. "We're also seeing a rise in demand from companies who are creating disruptive business innovations and need sophisticated security measures to protect data."

Adding public cloud resources to an existing application can be a daunting process. The tools that you currently use to manage the software and hardware outside the cloud aren’t always the best tools to efficiently grow into the cloud. All of the major configuration management tools have cloud orchestration plugins that can be leveraged, but there are also cloud-native tools that can dramatically improve the efficiency of managing your application lifecycle. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Alex Lovell-Troy, Director of Solutions Engineering at Pythian, presented a roadmap that can be leveraged by any organization to plan, analyze, evaluate, and execute on moving from configuration management tools to cloud orchestration tools. He also addressed the three major cloud vendors as well as some tools that will work with any cloud.

With more than 30 Kubernetes solutions in the marketplace, it's tempting to think Kubernetes and the vendor ecosystem has solved the problem of operationalizing containers at scale or of automatically managing the elasticity of the underlying infrastructure that these solutions need to be truly scalable. Far from it. There are at least six major pain points that companies experience when they try to deploy and run Kubernetes in their complex environments. In this presentation, the speaker will detail these pain points and explain how cloud can address them.
Containers and Kubernetes allow for code portability across on-premise VMs, bare metal, or multiple cloud provider environments. Yet, despite this portability promise, developers may include configuration and application definitions that constrain or even eliminate application portability. In this session we'll describe best practices for "configuration as code" in a Kubernetes environment. We will demonstrate how a properly constructed containerized app can be deployed to both Amazon and Azure using the Kublr platform, and how Kubernetes objects, such as persistent volumes, ingress rules, and services, can be used to abstract from the infrastructure.
