San Diego, CA, 2nd November 2023, Entando, an open-source application composition platform that allows organizations to build composable and cloud-native business applications on Kubernetes, today announced that it was mentioned as a Sample Vendor in Gartner Hype Cycle™ for Cloud Platform Services, 2023*.
This Hype Cycle helps IT leaders understand the pace and viability of maturing and emerging cloud platform technologies, services and trends. While traditional PaaS capabilities are reaching maturity, a new wave of cloud platform innovations crowd the Peak of Inflated Expectations.
In the report, Gartner defines an Application Composition Technology as a technology that “ provides a catalog for business application components and the means for IT and business technologists to assemble applications, processes and experiences. Optionally this may support the importing or building of new components, a prepopulated catalog, and governance. Cataloged business application components may be UX, data, process, business logic or other software assets.”
We believe that Entando closely aligns with the definition of Application Composition Technologies as it embodies the core principles outlined in the definition. In fact it provides a rich catalog of reusable components encompassing diverse areas. The platform empowers both IT experts and business technologists to collaboratively design applications, bridging the gap between technical and business perspectives. This ensures that the resulting applications not only fulfill strategic objectives but also meet technical requirements. Furthermore, Entando's flexibility for innovation allows seamless integration of new components or the creation of custom ones, fostering a culture of continuous innovation. With a commitment to governance and quality, Entando's prepopulated catalog of predefined, quality-assured building blocks ensures adherence to established standards across applications, thereby facilitating efficient development processes.
According to us, this acknowledgment is a testament to Entando's proactive role in shaping the future of cloud technology. With a focus on fostering integrated platforms and building blocks, Entando is poised to contribute significantly to the evolution of how applications are developed and utilized.

Entando recommends enterprises look for applications and modernization projects which can benefit from application composition technologies, “Programmatic access to IT services supporting business functions is now ubiquitous through API and event-driven support. Businesses can buy or build their IT services, then extend these services with application composition technologies including those targeting rapid automation or application delivery with business technologists as well as software engineers. This composition approach enables more support for differing end-user persona and use cases.”
