    15. 15. Executive SummaryFor fast delivery of new businessapplications, conventional Java and .NET are often no longer the bestchoices. Instead, a generation ofnew productivity platforms holdsthe potential to speed initialapplication delivery and ongoingupdates. These platforms abstract away platform configuration chores, repetitive codingtasks, and long testing and quality assurance (QA) cycles. Some allow application developmentand delivery (AD&D) teams to delegate application delivery — in part or in whole — to businessexperts. AD&D teams under pressure to deliver more with less should evaluate these platforms. © report outlines this emerging category’s benefits and risks.This2012 Forrester Research, Inc.
