Promising Business Environment for 2010
(July 16, 2010) ExecutiveBrief Software Development Trends Survey Indicates Promising Business Environment for 2010
A recent ExecutiveBrief Software Development Trends Survey of more than 500 senior-level business leaders and software development professionals indicates a more optimistic outlook for business in 2010 as compared to 2009, with significant budget increases and a return to hiring.
"The 2010 survey was surprising in some respects with regard to its implied optimism"
In the survey sponsored by SoftServe, Inc., global provider of proven high quality software development, testing and consulting, respondents expressed optimism by indicating they planned to spend more on software development in 2010, as well as hire more permanent staff as compared to 2009. Supporting an outlook for growth, far fewer cited cost reduction and expense management among their top priorities.
Beyond the promise of an improved business environment, the survey indicated clearer preference in the need for software development support and preferred methodologies. Here are several of the key findings from the 2010 survey:
"The 2010 survey was surprising in some respects with regard to its implied optimism," said Mary Brandon, VP of Marketing, SoftServe. "Survey findings of projected budget increases, increased hiring, and reduced need for cost and expense reduction support indicate software development professionals are bullish on their immediate future. It's something to watch as we begin the second half of 2010 and soon enter 2011. Another item to watch is the shift in desired support from items such as process modeling to user interfaces. This shift could be linked to the reduced need for cost reduction and increased optimism related to new products and applications in a competitive marketplace. There's a lot to watch over the next year."
