The newest Trusted Advisor report covers the topic of technical debt. When developing and delivering software systems and services, compromises are often made – intentionally and unintentionally – in order to appease the business unit, deliver on time, or for a variety of other reasons. When this occurs, technical debt is created, and if it is left unmanaged, it can have a debilitating impact on an organization.
This report identifies some of the more common causes of technical debt, while also outlining what can be done to identify and deal with it.
Mike Harris served as lead researcher for the report and also participated in a brief Q&A about the topic. The Q&A is available for download on our website.
While easily ignored until it’s too late, technical debt should be dealt with sooner rather than later. Ask yourself, “What technical debt has been created in my organization and how can I address it?” Download the report now.
