Prediction 2021: Automation of Software Development
Software development has been stuck for 40 years using languages originally designed for developing operating systems. Despite alternatives such as low-code being around for a while and the emergence of domain-specific languages, they’ve had little impact. This is now changing as the demand for software continues to outstrip supply at the same time as system complexity is growing exponentially.
Automation is coming to the rescue, addressing complexity at every stage of app creation, low-code tools are scaling up, DevOps pipelines are simplifying cloud deployment and RPAs are delivering an enhanced employee experience. All faster than can be done manually.
