The pandemic has forced many enterprises to deliver solutions at a faster pace. However, the steps they have taken so far are only killing the morale of their IT department.
Shifting to a remote working model and operating on it swiftly has been a challenge for most enterprises. Now, as most enterprises are getting a strong foothold and adjusting to the new normal, they have been forced to deliver their services at a much faster pace.
CIOs understand that getting up to speed is not simple. If developers are being pressured to accelerate their work, they will easily get frustrated by bureaucracy or sidetracked by endless new ideas and requests heading their way. This results in constant rework on the codebase, thus delaying the releases of new products or services.
However, they are under increasing pressure to speed up the work in order to meet the rising customer demands. Even adapting to agile methodologies in a fast-paced environment isn’t enough to deliver volume as the increasing demands in businesses pace.
CIOs can speed up their Software development speed by constantly iterating on their existing approaches and integrating new technologies.
Implement tightly Integrated Digital Strategies
Developing digital strategies that are tightly integrated with the business process can help the enterprise deliver more value than expected. CIOs should collaborate with their counterparts to understand the nuances that are hampering the Software development process.
They should provide their IT teams to work with other business units that will help to understand the technicalities.
Standardization of tools and technologies
IT teams have been increasingly adopting many technologies to help them work faster. But the adoption of the latest tools is different across the various Software development teams in the enterprise. If it is not synchronized with the IT teams, it will result in creating more problems than resolving them.
To address that, different enterprise teams should provide their views on the l best practices they are following to increase the speed. Along with these, enterprises must help provide their teams with tools that will support the IT team and increase the IT products’ efficiency.
Embracing low-code/no-code platforms
Having a low-code platform/no-code platform can significantly enhance the development and deployment speed.
Technology increases the speed via interconnected ways such as:
1. Developers can leverage it to accelerate their coding process.
2. Enterprise users use the low-code/no-code platform to quickly deliver apps to meet their growing needs. This eliminates the time for co-ordinate with IT departments which significantly improves the delivering speed.
3. Since users can pick up the lower-level Software development work, the IT team can concentrate its efforts on more complex, higher-value projects which result in turning the working time around much more quickly.
Fostering a laser-focused approach
Instead of forcing the development teams to work along with a broad array of development verticals, only giving them a single objective to focus on can dramatically increase the productivity and speed.
The pressure CIOs face is only set to increase as most businesses are preparing for a remote working environment in the coming years. Hence, iterating on the approaches, adopting the latest tools and technologies, standardizing language, processing, and cultivating a laser-focused approach, can enhance the speed and help enterprises deliver more products.
