Zend and UBM TechWeb have partnered to release the first significant survey of IT decision-makers that measures usage of the PHP language to create applications in large enterprises. Administered by UBM TechWeb, a global leader in business technology media, the survey focuses on how enterprise director-level and executive decision-makers are using or planning to use PHP.
The survey reveals that PHP is being used broadly to develop and run diverse and business-critical applications. The drivers of increased PHP adoption include faster development cycles when compared to other languages, a widely available talent pool, increased efficiency in the application development process, and ease of use. Of those surveyed, 97 percent of organizations that are using PHP plan to expand their usage and start additional PHP projects in the next 12-18 months.
