Accelerate development – think outside the box. Literally!

As a company, you need to develop a strategy, a systematic and high-quality approach in order to accelerate development. How can you do that? Find out more from our article.

Speed is essential. Speed is everything these days. Many companies feel like they are constantly under pressure to deliver new products with an ever-reducing time. Therefore, as a company, you need to develop a strategy, a systematic and high-quality approach in order to accelerate development.

Some companies have started to update the way they work as part of a broader digital transformation of their organization. However, this may take longer than expected as companies try to redesign their IT architectures, implement new technologies and learn the agile way of working. With digital competition showing no signs of abating, product developers need to accelerate development. But with so many technologies and methodologies to choose from, how can they select the best one for the business?

This is even more challenging when you are working in a highly regulated industry with legacy systems that need to be available 24/7 and a risk-averse culture. For example, did you know that FSI organizations in Romania report a 10-month delay in digital initiatives due to lack of skills - the largest among industries.

10-month delay! Let that sink in.

But how can we accelerate development?

If you want your products to get to market faster, sometimes you just have to think outside the box. Literally. If you contract the services of an external team to take care of the product or specific items on your roadmap, you can get amazing results.

People are sometimes afraid of hiring extended teams, but you should always keep in mind that your goal is to fill the gaps in your roadmap. This way, you can speed up development and deliver a product that benefits users and the business. Remember that hiring an agile extended team also brings benefits: fast ramp-up, agility, optimized technical solutions, you get quick feedback, and developers always have a problem-oriented mindset.

Software development that is truly effective does not happen by accident. It's the consequence of meticulous planning and following a proven process. That's why, in order to accelerate development, we recommend the following:

1. Expand the team


The project deadline may not always align with the scope of the project. Adding extra resources is the simple solution to this situation. Add extra developers if you need to manage more code.

2. Create a clear set of requirements and a roadmap


If you take the time to plan each step along the road, you'll get much better results. If the development team is clear on the project's needs and goals and knows exactly what to do and when to do it, you've already saved a lot of time on debating the next steps. Before starting the development process, create an overall project roadmap and discuss it with the team.

3. Stay away from technical debt


Technical debt is the intentional use of a less-than-ideal solution to accelerate the development process. It's not such a bad thing if have a backup plan in place. Technical debt, on the other hand, leads to system complexity. You can cut corners now, but you'll have to deal with the consequences later. So just write good code from the beginning.

We always work closely with our clients to deliver high-quality software that outperforms the competition. Our advanced impact analysis and constant feedback process allow us to deliver faster, stay flexible and optimize time to market.
