Overview

Objectives of the Survey

This survey gives a comprehensive view of the attitudes, adoption patterns and intentions of developers in relation to Cloud computing. Evans Data Corporation wishes to make this survey series as valuable as possible to our clients; thus, we solicit input from subscribers prior to the publication of each volume. This subscriber input is incorporated into the content of the survey, providing answers and insight into issues of interest to our clients. Publication rights to any of the results are not granted to any subscribers outside of their own companies without written permission from Evans Data Corp.

Survey Methodology

This survey series is completed entirely online. Developers from the EDC International Panel of Developers were sent invitations to participate and complete the survey online. Incentives for completing the survey are 1) the ability to influence tool makers, 2) entry into a contest to win $500, and 3) receive points which can be used to redeem prizes.

Research Design

The survey research method is the basic research design. The questionnaire for this survey is constructed for developers actively involved with developing a variety of applications using a wide variety of technologies. An e-mail invitation was sent out to software developers inviting them to come to the survey site, fill out the survey online, and register for the drawing. Verbatim of any appreciable length was not used in this volume. Answers were compiled in SPSS.

Relative Rankings

In order to facilitate better at-a-glance comprehension of complex data sets, Evans Data Corp provides relative ranking tables next to summary sheets. These rankings have a weighted numerical weighting for the various categories. For example, in a question where the possible answers are w, x, y and z, w is multiplied by 2, x by 1, y by 1 and z by -2. The sum of these comprises the relative ranking for the category in question. The results are then sorted, from highest ranking to lowest, to give a closer comparison.

The Sample – Software Developers

This survey consists of 449 in-depth interviews conducted with developers. As in all Evans Data Corp. neutral opt-in lists of developers were used to recruit in addition to our panel. Neutral lists are defined as those not associated with a particular platform, language, or vendor.

The EDC Panel

When conducting demand-side primary research, it is important to recruit participants from sources that are as unbiased as possible. Since 1998, Evans Data Corporation has been recruiting developers to participate in surveys, maintaining a neutral panel has remained foremost in our efforts. Though we have used more than 100 different individual sources for recruiting, the following principles are strictly adhered to and consistently applied:
- No vendor lists have ever been used in Evans Data Corp. subscription surveys nor added to the panel.
- No platform-specific lists have ever been used in any Evans Data Corp. general subscription surveys nor added to the general panel.
- No language-specific lists have ever been used in any Evans Data Corp. subscriptions surveys nor added to the panel.

By following these principles, Evans Data Corp. provides the most diverse and unbiased sample available anywhere. With thousands of developers deliberately chosen for their neutrality from a wide variety of lists, our data truly provides in-depth examinations of representative samples of the developer population.

The EDC panel of developers includes approximately 75,000 professional developers in more than 85 countries. The EDC panel represents the finest example of an unbiased and representative sample of developers available today. As the panel continues to grow, the existing principles of neutral recruitment will continue to apply, assuring clients of the most representative sample possible.
