How do you identify your software development priority in times of pandemic?
How do you identify your software development priority in times of pandemic as several companies are currently experiencing its repercussions. As the Prime Minister said, some are “on pause” while others are unable to find the necessary employees to meet demands.
One thing remains though, what did not perform well before the pandemic, is still not performing well during the pandemic and will not perform well afterwards. However, we will return to performance issues in a context of pandemic and economic downturn in a future post.
Of course, you could also embark on the Digital Transformation project, which we have already discussed at length in previous posts, or on an Agile Transformation project, i.e. the integration of Agility into the enterprise. These projects are certainly very worthwhile, but we have something else in mind for you.
Identifying software development priorities in times of pandemic?
For some companies, it will be a question of doing more with less, while for others, it will simply be a question of doing better?
Indeed, any IT manager will seek either a gain in productivity or a gain in performance. However, there is a third path that is less obvious but certainly just as profitable, the path of Intelligence (not artificial, that is 😊).
So, if your company is on idle, why not take advantage of this time to recover Business Intelligence? Such a Business Intelligence-oriented software development project, while requiring good thinking, will not sideline your critical applications. Moreover, whether it is Financial or related to your Customers, this Business Intelligence will prove to be an invaluable competitive advantage in the recovery.
Now, is Business Intelligence identified as a software development priority in your company? It should.
