Persistent a ‘Leader’ in Digital Transformation in the ISG Provider Lens™ 2020 Archetype report for Next-gen ADM Services

ISG’s Persistent Overview

Persistent a “Leader” for Digital Transformation in ISG Provider Lens™ 2020 for Next Generation ADM Services

The Application Development & Maintenance (ADM) space is changing, where the demand for fast, responsive, feature-rich, stable and secure applications is driving the large digital transformation projects and engagements. According to ISG, the focus is now on packaged technology solutions and software-as- a-service (SaaS)-based offerings and managed application service contracts. ISG aptly calls this next-gen ADM.

Next-gen ADM includes traditional consulting, design, custom development, packaged software integration, operations and testing, but the demand for speed is driving the use of automation, artificial intelligence (AI), new methodologies and more expansive managed services approaches.
