Thoughtworks, a global technology company, today issued the latest Technology Radar, an assessment of trends significantly impacting software development and business strategy. The Technology Radar sets out the current changes in software development - things in motion to pay attention to based upon Thoughtworks’ day-to-day work and experience solving their clients’ toughest challenges.
“In this edition of Technology Radar, we again highlight the issue of security and privacy,” said Dr. Rebecca Parsons, CTO of Thoughtworks. “The Internet of Things (IoT) and proliferation of connected devices is changing the way companies think about software. Building and deploying secure software is the responsibility of all stakeholders involved in the process not just the developer or CSO.
