Current challenges facing developers in today’s digital world
By 2030, the number of software developers globally is due to almost double, yet InterSystems research has found that more than 8 out of 10 developers currently feel they work in a pressured environment. So while 96% feel they make an important contribution to the wider business, are they getting the access to the resources and support they need?
The COVID-19 pandemic has meant that developers, like most office workers, have also had to adapt to working remotely. This has resulted in developers being faced with some new challenges, despite 43% of developers saying that the stress they are under could be reduced if they had extra resources.
Organisations should consider providing tools to help developers automate parts of their workload. The advent of InterSystems IntegratedML solves this issue by allowing developers to add automation and predictions easily to applications without the need for additional expertise or resource. This simplifies the process of building, testing, and deploying ML models and speeds up the process of integrating them into production applications.
As developer roles globally are expected to almost double in a decade, organisations must begin to invest their time into developers in recognition of the vital role they play and the pressure many feel under.
