Four Ways Businesses Develop More and Spend Less with CaptiveCoE™
In today’s market, balancing development costs and aligning R&D goals with business objectives can be difficult. With so many frameworks and integrations to consider, building for tomorrow can be cumbersome for companies with backlogs that stretch for years.
It’s not easy finding efficiencies that allow you to scale your development and minimize speed to market while also adhering to R&D budgets. Given the tight labor market for software developers, time and money spent recruiting, hiring, and training can delay deadlines and result in missed revenue opportunities. At the same time, development issues can sidetrack your strategic goals.
While there are advantages to an in-house model, the dearth of good talent means companies struggle to find engineers with the skillsets they need to move ahead and, as a result, encounter common development issues.
Common Development Issues
R&D leaders are all-too-familiar with the difficulties in delivering quality development in timelines that match the business direction. Two common and costly issues companies face in development are technical mismatches and competing prioritization.
- Technical Mismatches Many companies struggle to balance their business requirements with the skills of their development teams. Even with a consistent business model, various skills are needed as you build and scale different avenues of your product. As your strategy evolves, in-house developers may no longer have the technical skills required for your project. This can lead to costly delays to recruit and hire talent with the skills you need.
- Competing Prioritization Prioritization of lower-value maintenance tasks rather than higher-value development comes at a high cost. In-house teams may also devote considerable time prioritizing technical debt and ongoing maintenance. This detracts from the development or enhancement of revenue-generating features that accelerate sales.
There is an efficient solution to these development issues. Trantor’s Captive COE helps you accelerate development so you can focus on your strategic objectives.
