Collaboration between business and IT: the future of successful applications
Increasing market velocity and customer demands are forcing companies to adjust to an uncomfortable truth: siloed development is holding them back. It’s hindering their message, lengthening their time to market, and, ultimately, crimping their profit.
But business teams often lack the software skills to develop the sophisticated applications they concoct. IT teams, as well, need outside insight and user interaction data to ensure they’re building the right tool for the right audience at the right time. Instead of partitioning the company to work on separate projects and hoping they’ll serendipitously create a unified result, it’s time to break down the walls separating teams and have them work together from the start.
Look no further than the rise of collaborative tools like GSuite, new approaches to application development such as DesignOps, or simply the ubiquity of workplace chat software for evidence of this shift. Millennials now represent the largest portion of the US workforce and it’s no coincidence that their comfort with technology, tendency towards forming partnerships, and demand for instant access to information and feedback are driving new workplace trends.
Workplaces want to collaborate, and they’re starting to do so en masse. All they need to succeed is the right platform to support this collaborative effort.
