Software and Product Development: Critical Issues

This IDC study provides CIOs and IT executives with an overview of IDC's IT Executive Program Software and Product Development practice. "CIOs and application development executives need to have a 'continuous everything' model as cloud and mobile application development, DevOps, and context-aware development take hold in the enterprise," says Stephen Elliot, research vice president for Application Development in IDC's IT Executive Program. "Application development is undergoing the largest transformation these teams have seen over the past 30 years, and the best organizations are going to turn these investments into sustainable competitive advantages."
