The future of development will be driven by platform as a service (PaaS) providers, Gillen says. Developers will assemble applications using code and components from players including Amazon, Microsoft, Salesforce, IBM, Google, Red Hat, Pivotal, and Oracle. He points to Adobe as an example, which now offers an API service that allows image manipulation through its Creative Cloud offering.
