As IBM Jumps On Board, There's Just No Stopping AJAX Now

AJAX Will Define the Entire i-Technology Year In 2006

Among all the terms cited by SYS-CON's worldwide network of software development activists, evangelists, and executives, when in December we conducted our annual look ahead at i-Technology, the two that cropped up most often were "IE7"...and "AJAX."

Here is a sample of who predicted what about AJAX in 2006:

MITCHELL KERTZMAN: founder and CEO of Powersoft, now at Hummer Winblad Venture Partners

"Rich application interfaces, including (but not exclusively) AJAX.  Enterprise developers/IT managers have finally realized that the browser interface was a step backward to the 3270 and forms mode. That was good enough for a while, but not anymore."



JIM MILBERY: CTO for Chicago Growth Partners

"IE gets new life out of the proliferation of AJAX. More high-profile sites are going to adopt AJAX as a means of extending the life of the browser in the near term. We may even see the return of some application-development tools around AJAX (something more than just component libraries)."


J P MORGENTHAL: managing partner for the IT consultancy Avorcor

 "AJAX: We will see the rise of even stronger support for more powerful portable client-based applications based on Web protocols."




ERIC NEWCOMER: CTO, IONA Technologies

"AJAX will become established as the solution for 'browsers for SOA' but it will not solve the problem of how you access all the data still contained in legacy environments, which still need to be service enabled – with their mission critical qualities of service preserved."




PETER ZADROZNY: CTO, StrongMail

"
AJAX will be adopted like wildfire."



PETER YARED: CEO and Founder of "enterprise LAMP" specialist ActiveGrid

"Since lightweight architecture is the best way to build rich AJAX applications that tie together services, 2006 will be the year of lightweight servers, whether it is LAMP, lightweight Java (Tomcat, Struts, Spring, Hibernate), Ruby on Rails, or a thinned down .NET. 

Sun is going to have to finally address both scripting and open source with Java, as more and more developers move from J2EE to scripting languages and lightweight servers."

Industry after industry is under siege as companies embrace digital transformation (DX) to disrupt existing business models and disintermediate their competitor’s customer relationships. But what do we mean by “Digital Transformation”? The coupling of granular, real-time data (e.g., smartphones, connected devices, smart appliances, wearables, mobile commerce, video surveillance) with modern technologies (e.g., cloud native apps, big data architectures, hyper-converged technologies, artificial intelligence, blockchain) to enhance products, processes, and business-decision making with customer, product and operational insights.
At CloudEXPO Silicon Valley, June 24-26, 2019, Digital Transformation (DX) is a major focus with expanded DevOpsSUMMIT and FinTechEXPO programs within the DXWorldEXPO agenda. Successful transformation requires a laser focus on being data-driven and on using all the tools available that enable transformation if they plan to survive over the long term. A total of 88% of Fortune 500 companies from a generation ago are now out of business. Only 12% still survive. Similar percentages are found throughout enterprises of all sizes.
