Many organisations rely on strategic systems that are becoming harder and harder to maintain. The business is unhappy because features are taking longer to be built and they cannot react fast enough to market demands. Developers are unhappy because the code is messy and negatively affects their productivity. Testers are unhappy because of the volume of work they have and they still cannot guarantee the quality of the software. Clients are becoming disenchanted because of the lack of quality and slow frequency of updates. Strategic software cannot become a burden to the organisation—they need to remain strategic and continuously enable business agility. In this conversation, Mash and Sandro will discuss key strategic aspects of software modernisation initiatives and why they are needed.
