Technology evolves at a fast pace and the enterprise software industry isn't immune. If you’re developing enterprise software for clients, here are five tenants to keep in mind.
With that in mind, here are six major trends shaping the enterprise software development space in 2019 and beyond.
DevOps has become an integral part of the software development process. You should work on the DevOps principle while the before and while the solution is being created to ensure seamless, continuous integration. By sticking with this approach, you will minimize errors, enhance speed, and ensure quality end product.
There's no doubt the cloud is an influential tool for providing users with an accurate quantity of computing power and services to fulfil their requirements. But many companies avoid being locked in a single cloud partner because it will be difficult to switch from one provider to another if needed. This is why most entrepreneurs prefer using containers or container management for building enterprise apps. These tools have the potential to build infrastructure that is not dependent on any particular cloud and can be easily moved from one location to another.
Microservices are basically blocks of code that can perform tasks on their own. The primary motive is to build a large-scale solution as a set of modular components. Also, it's easier for programmers to maintain microservices. This is a software development technique which is becoming quite popular in the industry.
Serverless architecture works on the principles of microservices. You can deploy small blocks of your app straight to the cloud provider and leave the job of deciding the required infrastructure for your load on it.
In a nutshell, these techniques simplify the deployment and management of enterprise software. Also, this trend has become even more popular with key cloud providers such as AWS Lambda or Azure Functions embracing it.
Hybrid architectures merge two integral components cloud infrastructure and on-premises together in order to provide the users with optimal performance and speed. Organizations are eager to get benefits of the cloud but they're equally excited to work with on-premises infrastructure.
Most enterprises are inclined toward getting 100 percent automated test coverage. They work with an automated QA pipeline along with integration testing, performance testing, API testing, and unit testing in order to have an inclusive coverage of the code. This provides an opportunity to examine how their enterprise software is going to perform and use it for their own benefit in the delivery life cycle.
More and more organizations are adopting these trends to propel innovation in their enterprise software development methods. These trends will introduce a new category of enterprise software products that are much more efficient, advanced, and productive than the solutions available at hand.
