6 in 10 executives bemoan insufficient IT capacities

They believe their IT teams aren't equipped to effectively achieve business goals.

Whilst an overwhelming 91% of business executives and senior IT professionals admit that software development is crucial to achieving business goals and helping them stay ahead of their competitors, less than half (47%) believe that their IT teams are able to effectively achieve these priorities, according to a survey released by CA Technologies.

The survey revealed that most organisations don’t have the necessary IT infrastructure or capabilities to properly implement their software development priorities as only 21% believe that their IT teams are able to effectively design quality applications and systems and gain greater insight into customer needs to improve app performance. 

Additionally, only 17% believe that their IT professionals are very effective in embedding security into the software development process despite the fact that 85% believe that these are key priorities for business development. 

“Software is indisputably pivotal for the growth of companies, however the study found that most organizations are severely lacking the right IT capabilities. This hampers their ability to develop and deliver the software needed to support their business needs,” added the press release.
