Gain 30% Extra Power for Your Software Development Organization

The 3 Factors that Drain IT Budget:

Defect fixing

Working in and removing technical debt

Poor knowledge distribution

1. Defect Fixing - when late is too late

Unexpected behaviour of software is frustrating and cannot be easily spotted just by looking at the source code. Depending on the time a software bug is found, it has varying consequences speaking of the time needed to fix it. For more details and preventive strategies, read this blog post or download our PDF.


2. From "Working in Technical Debt" to "Actively Managing It"

Technical debt is one of the most draining traps during software development. This term describes willingly implemented "quick fixes", "workarounds" or "hot fixes", which should be addressed in the future. Hopefully, budget will be allocated to remove technical debt - but, honestly, why should there be budget for something which does not generate direct value for the customer? Or does it?

Read our whitepaper on how to deal with technical debt efficiently!


3. Bad Knowledge Distribution 

What does it look like and what can be the consequences?

Your developers' understanding of the source code is the key factor to actively managing the process of generating software. Given that each individual developer has her/his special field of interest and proficiency, a complete specialization and isolation bears an enormous risk.
The software map shows those areas which were only ever altered by one developer. The high purple "code objects" indicate a high level of complexity. There are two complex sections of source code, just one person of your organization can profoundly work with. Sections, just one developer can easily navigate in, understand dependencies and fix errors in a reasonable time frame.
In the context of efficient software development and effective software development management, this is truely a situation to be avoided. Why? Just imagine this developer's knowledge is removed by circumstances beyond the organization's control, e.g. leaving the organization, sickness or other uncontrollable events.
