IBM tops in Ovum list of Software Application Development

IBM Corporation


IBM has been named a market leader in three separate Ovum Decision Matrix reports in areas of DevOps release management, application lifecycle management and agile project management.

IBM won high scores for its ability to provide organizations with a superior application development environment such as within IBM’s Cloud Platform, Bluemix.

It also topped as a complete portfolio of solutions that provide speed and quality of application delivery including IBM’s UrbanCode and Collaborative Lifecycle Management.

IBM’s development toolbox includes more than 140 APIs and services to take advantage of technologies including cognitive, DevOps, Blockchain, IoT, security, data analytics and more.

“We see IBM taking great strides to give companies the platform and tools they need to manage a variety of business challenges,” says Michael Azoff, Principal Analyst at Ovum.

“Very few vendors we evaluated offer the broad range of capabilities, support and global reach that IBM provides. By bringing to bear advanced tools and seamless integration with existing data and systems, IBM is definitely winning over the hearts and minds of developers. IBM’s decade-long leadership in application lifecycle management has made it uniquely qualified to solve multi-speed IT and product challenges in the enterprise.”

All three Ovum Decision Matrix reports evaluated about a dozen vendors on various criteria including technology features, ability to execute and overall market impact.
