AJAX Used on Half Of SOA and Web Services Projects

Evans Data Releases The Findings From December 2006 Survey Of Over 400 Web Service Developers

Over 40% of developers working on Service Oriented Architectures (SOA) can now complete a typical SOA development effort within 3 months – more than twice as many as a year ago – according to results in the new Evans Data Corporation’s 2006 Web Services Development Survey to be released December 22. Additionally, over 60% of all SOA projects are completed within just 6 months.

These dramatic productivity increases come at the same time as developers and IT professionals embrace Microsoft’s .Net and Java for SOA in almost equal proportions, and both the Java and C# languages’ market share continue to grow as SOA implementations mushroom. Over the last two years, the total number of companies with more than 40 Web Services in production has doubled and that number is expected to double once again in the next twelve months.

“We are now moving from the SOA pilot stage into full live deployments taking advantage of the reuse of frameworks and services thus driving the much improved productivity curve,” said John Andrews, Evans Data’s President. “This adoption highlights the proven benefits that both the IT and line of business organizations achieve through their SOA efforts.”

In other findings from the December 2006 survey of over 400 Web Service developers:

* Half of developers working on Web Services are currently using AJAX or plan to do so over the coming 12 months. This is up from 45% six months ago.

* Determining return on investment for SOA is considered the number-one challenge to SOA development and deployment efforts, followed by getting organizational buy-in.

* In three years, two out of three SOA developers will be running the majority of their applications in managed code.
