Three Ways Software Development Companies Drive Digital Acceleration

By [email protected]_84

As VP of Operations at BairesDev, Damián is responsible for the entire customer relations life-cycle, safeguarding the company’s operations.  

The concept of digital acceleration (clearly a child of digital transformation) has grown exponentially in the past couple of weeks. Nothing unexpected, considering the huge demand for technology solutions that the novel coronavirus pandemic generated on a worldwide scale. Nonetheless, as most businesses moved digital transformation to the top of their to-do list, many have stumbled upon the harsh reality of technology adoption: It takes crucial know-how to do it right. 

Working with software development companies has become one clear long-term solution for this dilemma. The industry knowledge, expertise and technology capabilities they bring to the table often just can’t be matched by in-house operations. And, what’s more, outsourcing IT services has proven to be a faster and more cost-effective way of developing high-quality products, even in industries as

How to mandate agility in software development, operations, and data science

By [email protected]_84

Even when leaders proclaim in their townhalls that your organization needs to be more agile and nimble, they can’t mandate it. Your CIO and IT leaders may standardize on practices, metrics, and responsibilities that they describe as agile methodology standards, but they can’t dictate that everyone adopts agile cultures and mindsets.

You can select agile tools, automate more with devops practices, and enable citizen data science programs, but you can’t force adoption and demand employee happiness. IT operations may operate a hybrid multicloud architecture, but that doesn’t necessarily mean that costs are optimized or that infrastructure can scale up and down auto-magically.

So, if you were looking to quickly standardize your agile processes, or to miraculously address technical debt by shifting to agile architectures, or to instantly transform into an agile way of working, then I am sorry to disappoint you. Agility doesn’t come free, cheap, or easily. You can’t
