New York software firm CA Technologies has found in a new study that IT departments in several corporations are not yet well enough prepared to harness emerging technologies.
In the survey, barely 12% of respondents said their organization provides IT teams with the tools and training necessary for developing solutions in technologies such as artificial intelligence and machine learning.
“Very few feel fully prepared for agile, DevOps, and machine learning,” said the report. Although companies like Google are investing billions in artificial intelligence, barely 4% of the software professionals surveyed said they were fully prepared for AI.
Furthermore, only 13% of top management and business executives understand the benefits of DevOps and are willing to make the necessary investment. Barely 29% of them believe that their IT teams are putting the right processes and practices in place to deliver on business needs.
Software developers also feel unprepared to respond to modern IT innovation drivers: only 15% said they are “fully prepared” for agile methods, while just 16% said the same about DevSecOps.
A total of 125 software developers and nearly 1,280 IT and business executives took part in the study.
