Pressure on App Teams to Rush Projects to Market
App development team leaders believe that they are under excessive pressure to design, develop and test apps in an unfeasible amount of time. Testplant, a provider of digital automation intelligence system revealed that 42% of these app development team leaders are from the US and UK.
According to Testplant’s research, which was conducted a survey of more than 750 development team leaders, 36% feel they are not given enough time to test the apps before deployment. 60% said the pressure comes most within the company rather than their competitors. And 49% said that they issued apps before they go through proper testing.
John Bates, CEO of Testplant, said: “Companies are struggling to keep up with the pace of digitalization. There will be a quality toll unless businesses see the imperative to completely rethink their traditional development processes. And eventually move towards more automated, intelligent solutions and tools.”
Moreover, 50% said that their company will develop apps with IoT components. More than half said they would look into AI (artificial intelligence) and 62% said they will increase the number of apps deploying machine learning and components with deep learning. These are mostly their targets over the next year.
If given more time, 81% of the respondents said that their deployed apps would have a greater impact on their business. However, 56% said the use of outdated techniques and tools is holding them back from meeting the demands of the digital world.
