1CA Technologies Study Finds Enterprises Unprepared for Emerging Tech
IT departments appear unprepared for the emerging technologies that are driving today’s business opportunities, according to a recent survey from CA Technologies. The resulting report, titled “Think Your Organization Is on Top of Your Software Development Game?,” primarily focuses on the struggles that software developers face: Very few feel “fully prepared” for Agile, DevOps and machine learning. At the same time, both IT and business executives agree that the tech department isn’t delivering on key business needs. A total of 125 software developers and nearly 1,280 IT and business executives took part in the research, which was conducted by Freeform Dynamics. Charts for this slide show were provided by CA Technologies.
