Pega, Modern Development Environment, and the 12 Factor App
I have recently heard a lot about the 12 Factor App (https://12factor.net/). These 12 factors recommend approach and methodologies associated with modern development. I believe developing Apps and solutions in Pega addresses the basis and the factors found in the 12 factor App.
Is there any area where Pega Application Development does not really address one of the 12 factors (shown below)?
I. Codebase - One codebase tracked in revision control, many deploys
II. Dependencies - Explicitly declare and isolate dependencies
III. Config - Store config in the environment
IV. Backing services - Treat backing services as attached resources
V. Build, release, run - Strictly separate build and run stages
VI. Processes - Execute the app as one or more stateless processes
VII. Port binding - Export services via port binding
VIII. Concurrency - Scale-out via the process model
IX. Disposability - Maximize robustness with fast startup and graceful shutdown
X. Dev/prod parity - Keep development, staging, and production as similar as possible
XI. Logs - Treat logs as event streams
XII. Admin processes - Run admin/management tasks as one-off processes
