In this year’s survey, we collected data about how the COVID-19 pandemic and ensuing recession are changing the way respondents’ organizations think about and use open source. We explore how organizations manage their open source dependencies today, why and when their leaders encourage the use of open source, and the key benefits they get from increasing its use.
We also learned more about the open source programming languages development teams turn to most and the policies they have in place around developer contributions to open source projects.
In this report, we highlight the most interesting revelations that help us understand how to make open source work even better for development teams and the organizations they work within.
Choosing your software’s architecture is no simple task. One important consideration when doing so is the ease, or the challenges, of debugging that come with it. Whether it is a monolithic architecture or a distributed system, they both present individual challenges to the debugging process.
As we analyze this architectural spectrum, this paper will show that while they pose very different debugging challenges, all of them ultimately stem from the same source: access to data that is simple, quick, and safe to capture.
The lack of data, and therefore the need to get that data, is the underlying problem in all debugging challenges. This lack of data and the way to resolve it is comprised of three core criteria.
Why digital transformation? Why now?
For organizations trying to drive digital transformation, one of the greatest challenges is creating an org-wide culture that’s receptive to innovation. Many organizations that foster this culture successfully do so by implementing Centers of Excellence.
Check out this eBook to better understand how to successfully create centers of excellence in your organization, build a culture of innovation, and progress digital transformation initiatives.

How fast is your IT? You need speed and adaptability to adjust as big changes in the global economy and our daily lives keep coming. Disruption is the status quo, and the “new normal” is not yet defined.
Are you prepared for what’s next? What are IT organizations saying about it all?
This spring, 2,200 IT professionals and senior IT leaders participated in a survey and shared:
The most shocking result? Only 21% of people feel like they can beat their peers and competitors at the change game. These and other answers to the survey became a report that offers insights into which organizations are leading the race in speed and adaptability in this era of digital urgency.
Download “The Speed of Change: How Fast Are You?” to learn more about those who lead and those who don’t. You’ll also find out if you are a leader, and get tips on what to do if you are not.
In today’s digital-driven world, enterprise mobility teams are tasked with controlling the chaos of testing multiple applications across multiple platforms, operating systems, and device types.
In this Mobile App Testing Special Report, you will learn how to create a mobile application testing strategy that combines the best of manual and automated testing using the industry’s best technology and tools.
Many software engineers who interview candidates feel that they know how to conduct an interview that will predict the candidate’s performance in the onsite interview loop and on the job. Yet, most teams fail to conduct enough interviews with the quality and consistency required to hire the software engineers they need, creating an Interview Gap.
This paper explores how companies can equip developers and hiring teams with a framework for conducting predictive technical interviews as part of a consistent, structured process.
A structured scoring rubric can put candidates who meet with different interviewers on a level playing field by standardizing what competencies are being evaluated, as well as providing consistency in language and rating scales. They help interviewers and hiring managers by making it clear which competencies matter. This helps guide which questions to ask in the interview, and where to spend time evaluating the candidate.
Each scoring rubric will be unique, depending on the job’s roles and responsibilities, but here is a general kit to get you started:
1. Identify what competencies are both relevant and important to assess during the interview
2. For each competency, list observable behavior and results as checkboxes (select all) and/or radio buttons (choose one)
3. Write down an “algorithm” to help interviewers summarize a completed rubric into a single conclusion
“Scaling Agile” is a relatively new concept that many organizations are considering, and some have attempted. They quickly find, however, it’s not as simple as forcing more teams to have a standup every morning or use a Kanban board. There are fundamental changes required to process, culture, and even organizational definitions of success, all of which present challenges at different stages of the Agile journey.
In this two-part series of whitepapers, we’re going to dive deep into how organizations can scale Agile most effectively. It requires both a bottom-up and a top-down approach, the former starting at the individual team level and the latter starting with the C-suite.
1.) The foundation you’re building on
2.) Key concepts to guide your build
3.) A blueprint for success
