Take the State of Application Services 2019 survey

Yes, you read that right. It’s that time again when we survey the market on the State of Application Delivery Services.

No, that’s not a typo. The change in name is deliberate. For the past four years we’ve been filtering our view of the world through the lens of application delivery and the platforms that have long served to host the average sixteen application services you use today to secure and scale applications. But the practice of delivering applications is undergoing its own digital transformation. It’s embracing cloud and containers. It’s using automation to achieve an agile network that can match the speed and scale of operations necessary to keep up with apps and grow the business.

And at the center of operations are the application services needed to scale and secure applications.

Which is why we’ve changed the name of our flagship survey – to reflect the change in focus in IT and application delivery toward application services.

We’ve also put our survey on a diet to reduce the amount of time we’re asking you to take to give us your unfiltered, unadulterated opinion on everything from cloud to application services to automation and orchestration. We want to know what frameworks and tools you’re using, what application services you rely on most, and what challenges with security you’re facing. We want to know not only because we need to write a report on it, but because your collective insight will help shape the future of application delivery services.

Of note for NetOps practitioners is the trend toward automating and orchestrating the delivery of those application services. What are you using? Where are you using it? What tools and frameworks are you leveraging? And what parts of your infrastructure are you leveraging them to automate?

We have questions. You have answers.

Answers we really want to hear.

And hey, if a warm fuzzy feeling from helping us out isn’t enough, we’re also giving away some pretty nice rewards in the form of gift card money (which is different than cash money, because it’s digital) to ten lucky respondents.

Many thanks. Much appreciated.
