This IDC Business Value Executive Brief leverages IDC's research into the value of cloud-based application development and integration solutions, including solutions such as IBM WebSphere Application Server (WAS) on cloud. These solutions not only enable application development in a hybrid cloud environment but also allow organizations to connect existing on-premise applications to cloud-based services. IDC's research shows how organizations can achieve significant value across different areas of the enterprise by moving from on-premise-focused application development to cloud-based solutions such as IBM WebSphere on cloud. Organizations implementing cloud-based application development solutions reported achieving the following benefits:
Improved ability to match application development capabilities to business demand by increasing agility and accelerating the application development life cycle
Facilitated business continuity and improved application reliability by reducing application downtime
Improved productivity of IT departments by spending less staff time maintaining infrastructure
Reduced IT infrastructure costs and components including the number of physical servers required to support application development
