ThoughtWorks Chief Technology Officer, Rebecca Parsons along with senior advisers of ThoughtWorks’ Technology Advisory Board, comprised of senior technology leaders from across the globe will convey their latest perspective on emerging technologies, identify strategic platforms and tools.
The report is aimed at providing CIOs, decision makers at all levels and enterprise developers with insight into the techniques, tools, languages and platforms that are driving next-generation software development from ThoughtWorks’ perspective.
For each item on the radar, ThoughtWorks’ provides a recommendation about the use of that item by placing it into one of four classes: Adopt, Trial, Assess, and Hold. The report is divided into four quadrants that cover Techniques, Platforms, Tools and Languages. According to the report some of the strategic trends the study identifies are:
• Continued development of alternatives to SQL datastores
• Treating all code from UI to tests with respect
• Increasing diversification and rigor in browser based languages and technologies
• Smaller, simpler and faster applications and services
Emergent design, evolutionary architecture, and Experience Design (XD) work together to rapidly deliver compelling, next-generation experiences for users. Agile Analytics is a new field that seeks to apply agile techniques to deliver faster insights into Big Data as well as more relevant experiences for software end-users.
While “cloud” is something of an overused buzzword, ThoughtWorks calls out specific technologies for private- and hybrid-clouds. We also identify and give advice on platform-as-a-service offerings such as AppHarbor.
The industry is experiencing something of a renaissance in programming languages, and ThoughtWorks’ radar specifically calls out the need to care about languages. Functional programming languages such as Scala, Clojure and F# are on the rise, along with related technologies such as ClojureScript and Google’s Dart.
