    How IT Is Accelerating Software Development

    The demand for speedy software development is surging, and the majority of IT teams are turning to Infrastructure as a Service to keep up with this schedule.

With the rapid pace of technology and business changes, the demand for speedy software development is surging, according to recently released research from Skytap. The accompanying report, the "2015 Software Development Survey," reveals that IT organizations will continue to increase the frequency of software updates. In fact, these updates often occur on a daily basis. The majority of technology teams are turning to cloud-based Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) solutions to keep up with this challenging schedule. And, in the future, a notable share will explore the possibilities of container-based technology—which, as recently as two years ago, was limited for the most part to start-ups. Today, however, the majority of enterprises are using containers—or expect to do so in the near future. "Much of this early usage is exploratory, as large companies build their container skill set and determine which approach to take for updating legacy applications—evolve or rewrite," said Dan Jones, director of product management at Skytap. More than 200 CIOs, CTOs and other IT managers and professionals took part in the research.
