Why Phase Change will fundamentally change software development – video

Gary Brach, Ken Hei, and Brad Cleavenger discuss how Phase Change's assistive AI technology will fundamentally change how software is developed so organizations can quickly and confidently respond to changing market dynamics.

While transformative advances in automation, communications' networking, and computer processing in the last 20 years have vastly improved business operations, the same cannot be said for software development.

The process of developing the applications that now run our daily lives hasn't significantly changed since the 1970s.

Sure, we've developed better tools and better ways of communicating with one another during the development process – such agile development techniques – but the underlying software development activities are the same.

This lack of substantial improvement makes it difficult for organizations to quickly respond to changing market dynamics.

However, the future of software development is bright. Organizations will soon be able to quickly and confidently respond to changing market dynamics.

Phase Change's technology will fundamentally transform how software is developed by introducing our assistive AI into the process – enabling organizations to quickly respond to market changes and opportunities.

Watch the following video below to learn why Gary Brach, Ken Hei, and Brad Cleavenger believe Phase Change's technology will fundamentally change the software development process.

Brain drain is a serious problem facing organizations that use software applications to run their businesses. Learn how you can seal the drain and retain all of the knowledge trapped in your applications. Read more about it at CodeCatalyst.ai.

Excerpt

At the end of every workday, your software development teams walk out the door with all of their knowledge leaving with them. Some of them don’t come back, and that loss of information and expertise, or brain drain, is a growing business problem, especially with IT industry turnover rates hovering between 20-30% annually.

Consider how much knowledge your organization loses when key members of your development team retire or join other companies. Not only do you lose development expertise, but the knowledge your engineers have regarding how your software applications work, such as:

  • How the system is architected
  • The subject-matter expertise used to implement functionality
  • The business considerations that drove product and feature designs
  • How third-party and external systems are integrated
