Why Read This Report
Less than a quarter of all enterprise developers are using cloud platforms today. Examining the first movers, using the Forrester Forrsights Developer Survey, Q1 2013, we found significant differences in the behavior, attitude, and reporting structure of these members of your IT team. Cloud developers are risk takers who are empowered, more comfortable with open source technologies, building the new systems of engagement, and tend to be happier in their work. They aren’t just experimenting either; they are putting applications into production on public cloud platforms and are doing so with traditional programming languages via agile, modern application designs. This toolkit report provides a snapshot view of the data from this compelling survey that shows what distinguishes these developers from the pack.
