SANTA CRUZ, CA, November 26, 2002 - The latest Evans Data International Developers Survey, published today, finds that compared with six months ago 33% more Web Services development is for application integration inside enterprises. Web Services development in Europe is now split evenly between internal and external applications.
The survey of 450 software developers, conducted in October 2002, outside North America shows the importance of the new technology, as 64% of developers stated they work with Web Services. Already applications are near completion as 51% expect deployment in the next six months.
“This latest survey confirms that Web Services are being proved inside business units rather than in B2B applications,” said Albion Butters, an analyst for Evans Data Corp. “We also find that international developers are building and deploying both internal and external Web Services faster than their North American counterparts.”
Other findings include:
- Application security in Europe is a concern, with 58% of developers reporting a security breach compared with 43% of North American developers.
- Linux continues to expand its user base. 59% of survey respondents expect to write Linux applications in the next year.
- The demand for wireless applications grows, as over half of European developers expect to write wireless applications.
