WebSphere permits users to choose the application server configuration that best fits a current business strategy.
IBM WebSphere application server is far and away the best product on the market for growing solutions as needs evolve. As market conditions change, applications need to be changed and adjusted rapidly. The modular construction and the solid front end and back end integration of the IBM WebSphere application server give IBM significant advantage in the market.
The J2EE application server software market is defined by the ability to build mission critical web sites that support a globally integrated enterprise. Strong growth is anticipated as tablets, smart phones, and mobile devices replace PCs. Mobile devices proliferate with 6.9 billion smart phones anticipated to be installed in 2019.
There are now 6.9 billion cell phone registered, paying users. Portable, mobile systems will expand the Internet at a pace not yet achieved. It is anticipated that the apps market will expand from $24 billion in 2013 to $35 trillion by 2019. This expansion of mobile computing at the device level is nothing compared to what is happening at the machine to machine (m to m) communications, with sensors being located everywhere, and monitoring of those sensors proliferating.
Application servers are poised to deal with the complexity that is being instantiated at every level of the environment that humans touch. Communication, analytics, collaboration are all part of what will make application servers relevant. The Internet of Everything (IoE) is expected to enable global private-sector businesses to generate at least $613 billion in global profits in 2013. Quadrillions of interconnected sensors will drive market innovation. Apps will proliferate based on the ability to quickly, accurately put together an app in one half hour or less and launch it. This is a fundamental aspect of application servers.
Application server mobile extensions are integrated in the Web apps development environments of vendors. Application server development can create Web applications using business server pages. They can use the mobile extensions of the Web application server, which makes the special requirements and characteristics of mobile devices available.
Application servers leverage evolving software delivery models, new development methodologies, emerging mobile application development, and open source software. Mobile application development projects targeting smartphones and tablets are an essential aspect of any departmental application initiative. Native PC projects are anticipated to give way to smartphone and tablet apps for the enterprise. Every enterprise has to have apps that give customers, distributors, partners, and suppliers access to information.
Mobile changes how consumers behave. Users leverage mobility to communicate. They use it to improve their daily lives. Mobile is growing through existing data services and new services. Users demand connectivity anywhere and anytime. Enterprises are beginning to exploit the opportunities provided by mobility. Mobile communications permit the enterprise improve efficiency by enabling remote services and sales people to work efficiently, by enabling better access to enterprise records from remote sites, by streamlining processes, and by supporting new business models.
Worldwide application server market revenues are forecast to grow 17.5% year-over-year from $7.4 billion in 2013 to $23.1 billion by 2020. This is in the context of a world communications infrastructure that is changing. Technology is enabling interaction, innovation, and sharing of knowledge in new ways and application servers promise to bring significant capability to enterprises seeking mission critical solutions to making the Internet available for productive, efficient use.

Application Lifecycle Management (ALM) Software Market Share Analysis: Market Shares, Analysis, And Index, Worldwide, 2006 To Current, Quarterly
Application lifecycle management (ALM) provides governance, development, and maintenance for application software. Requirements management, software architecture, programming, testing, change management, continuous integration, project management, and release management are fundamental to lifecycle management. Modern software development processes are complex
New systems must accommodate all manner of server, cloud, and virtual computing platforms. Software frameworks are evolving that require attention to the entire application focus. Mobile devices need to be accommodated. A software framework is a platform for developing software. Applications depend on functions that can be used to input variables from a process. Input is used to manage hardware devices, and permit interaction with system software. ALM streamlines the development process permitting programmers to achieve efficiency through reuse of code when developing a new application.
A framework is similar to an application programming interface (API), though a framework includes an API. A framework serves as a foundation for programming, while an API provides access to the system elements. ALM supports code libraries, a compiler, and other programs used in the software development process.
