Getting your application built faster could be your differentiation in being ahead of the pack.
As a product owner, you are well aware that the sooner you get a feature live on your platform, the faster it will generate money for you. For example, shortening the lead time of your application development from three months to one month would mean two extra months of sales and revenue. The competition is so fierce that the product companies are rushing minimum viable product (MVP) out in the market to monetize and test product viability. Early and continuous delivery would mean early revenue and lesser market risk.
Traditionally, Java has been a clear favorite for product developers and open source fans. While Java platform continues to be robust in many ways, the time to deliver remains a perpetual problem. It takes weeks or even months to get a built from scratch Java application to get features working end to end. Enterprise customers as well as ISVs have been waiting long for a faster development framework that not only facilitates faster development, but also let you develop on the underlying JVM. Needless to say, this new language can coexist with java as well.
