Thoughtworks, a global technology company, today issued the latest Technology Radar, an honest assessment of trends significantly impacting software development and business strategy. The Technology Radar sets out the current changes in software development - things in motion you should pay attention to based upon Thoughtworks’ day-to-day work and experience solving their client’s toughest challenges.
“Today’s successful organizations are the ones that place technology at the center of their overall business strategy”, said Dr. Rebecca Parsons, CTO of Thoughtworks. “CEOs are thinking about technology like never before as they try and make sense of a massive influx of data. The need to sufficiently analyze and anticipate disruptive elements in business and technology is at the core of why our Technology Radar continues to grow in readership with each new edition.”
“Given the velocity of change in business, Thoughtworks encourages companies to create their own radar, enabling a proactive approach to technology choices”, said Neal Ford, Software Architect and member of Thoughtworks’ Technology Advisory Board. “Having a radar helps people think about which technologies they should investigate, when to be more or less aggressive about adoption, and allows for more intelligent decision making.”
“Building our own radar pulled together our technology leaders in a way that strengthened our shared technology vision and provided a framework of how to get there,” said Tyson Singer, Vice President Agile Application Development at GapTech, Gap Inc.
