Lack of Developers Causing Backlog of Apps in the Enterprise
|Richard Harris in Enterprise Tuesday, November 4, 2014|
New research conducted by the research firm Opinion Matters on behalf of OutSystems indicates that a shortage of mobile app developers is causing a backlog of apps.
The research shows that 85% of organizations surveyed have a mobile app backlog of between one and 20 applications. It also shows that 92% of the survey respondents said developer vacancies constituted between 11% and 50% of their current team size.
OutSystems suggest the following strategies for companies that are experiencing a shortage of application developers:
- Automating: Understand where and when to automate to make the entire application lifecycle more efficient.
- Outsourcing: Identify and outsource the low-level, low-value tasks that won’t put the organization at risk of being overly dependent on third-party relationships.
- Staff training: Ensure that staff members have the development skills needed to keep up with business demands.
- Developing once: Develop a multi-channel mobile app development strategy that enables your team to develop an app once for all devices.
- Creating change maintenance: These processes enable developers to easily and efficiently update mobile apps with new features and functionality.
