SANTA CRUZ, CA, April 16, 2007 - Thirty percent of Ajax developers say they will enable end-user mash-up development within the year, according to Evans Data Corporation's newest report, the 2007 AJAX Development Survey. This latest finding demonstrates that growth will come not just from people integrating data, but also from enabling business processes engaging in such mash-ups.
"Our research definitely substantiates that mash ups have huge implications to business applications", said John F. Andrews, CEO of Evans Data Corporation. "Being able to break down barriers between applications and data to enable a more personalized, role-based set of software is extremely valuable both internally and externally."
Other findings from the responses of nearly 400 Ajax developers in the AJAX Development Survey:
- Ajax has a number of different applications, but it is primarily for the Web. Nearly four out of five respondents are using Ajax for Web applications and 39% are using it for Rich Internet applications.
- Twenty-eight percent of respondents see an increase in Ajax adoption of 50% or more, while another 25% estimate an increase of about 30%.
- On average, respondents are using Ajax for more than two different kinds of applications.
