How efficient software development can help businesses in times of crisis

Today, in the pandemic crisis, I believe efficiency is one of the most important capabilities a company needs to master. The economy is shrinking rapidly, forcing headcount reductions, and strengthening the focus on securing core business activities.  These are common-sense actions that are needed quickly to overcome the first impacts of the crisis.  

But what is the biggest problem we’re facing 

We do not know how long it will last, and uncertainty is businesses worst enemy.  

Becoming more efficient now and carrying that into the future is one answer to this pressing problem.  

How can efficient software development get businesses through the crisis?

Efficient software development can help businesses keep up with the rapidly changing environment, and adjust to it in real-time. Doing this efficiently requires fewer people, helping manage costs whilst driving greater productivity. Doing this with a blended model, provided by a third party such as Spyrosoft will allow companies to flex up once the crisis passes and take advantage of their new efficiencies to capture new markets and customers. 

This means not only accessing highly qualified software engineers but also passing or sharing responsibility with them to succeed with the projects’ delivery.
