Software development: Product-driven or design-led?

Most software developers work within project-oriented teams, since most companies are not startup vendors that can constantly reinvent themselves and deliver hot new products to market. Upgrades, integration and modernization projects carry forward a sizable estate of already coded software assets and third-party service dependencies. I once pondered an alternative product-driven strategy for software organizations … continue reading

3 apples in 2021 vs. 3 oranges in 2022: Predictions

You may see analyst predictions as meaningless, unless you find yourself choosing between an apple and an orange at a scarcely provisioned continental breakfast buffet. So it goes with the selection of strategies to fulfill an ever-increasing set of digital transformation requirements from a scarce IT budget. I have here the seeds of Intellyx’s 2021 … continue reading

There’s no simple fix available here. Supplier … continue reading

Analyst Watch: Is open source the great equalizer?

If you had told me 25 years ago that open source would be the predominant force in software development, I would’ve laughed.
