Web framework tools will make software development easier    

In 2023, businesses worldwide began experimenting with generative artificial intelligence tools like ChatGPT. While AI certainly remains an exciting technological innovation, companies are not rushing to use tools like this just to play around with. 

One of the significant drivers for AI adoption stems from its ability to simplify tedious processes, making workers' lives easier and increasing productivity. As development teams seek ways to simplify their processes, we expect an increasing number of organizations to adopt web frameworks. 

Web frameworks are the answer for simplification

Web frameworks provide developers with a strong foundation that can be modified as needed. These tools help provide the building blocks for web applications, websites, and APIs. Web frameworks exist for several languages and development environments, including Java, JavaScript, PHP, and Python. 

Web frameworks are a great time-saving tool for organizations to invest in, as they provide the building blocks for development teams to get started on creating an application. 

G2 users agree that web frameworks make development simple

While 2024 may be the year of web frameworks, companies have already begun seeing its benefits in 2023. Looking through G2 reviews, it becomes clear that simplification is already top of mind with users.

As the calendar turns to 2024, organizations should keep an eye on web frameworks, as well as ways to simplify the entire software development process. 

Developers appreciate having a base to work with to save time, and organizations appreciate increasing productivity. We expect an increasing number of vendors to begin marketing their products around simplification as development teams and business stakeholders require them.
