Software development leaders are turning towards automation in order to increase capacity and save time.
Indeed, 46% of software development executives believe that having automation within their organization is a top priority. A study by Tempo found out that leaders should use automation to eliminate mundane tasks that waste developers’ time, such as tasks that don’t deliver value, as well as stop using legacy processes that are not reflective of today’s tech landscape.
Besides, software development managers are looking to up-level capacity with automation and find the right talent to complete necessary tasks. They also need to focus on having a clear view of how time and effort are being invested.
Many organizations have stated that they already augment development and engineering work with automation tools for faster decision-making purposes. Yet, many have not fully extended to how time is tracked. Indeed, 34% of software developers still track time manually with spreadsheets, with the remaining two-thirds using internally developed tools or time tracking software they have purchased.
Hence, having an automated approach to time tracking is necessary to save time within processes. To do so, organizations need to have a good understanding of how time is being spent so they can adapt and optimize it.
