Study of Gebert software: newly developed or modified applications often with problems in the production of ohringen, 09.07.2008 – IT development departments of the companies must regularly excessive effort in reworking their new or modified software solutions stuck because introduced many problems show up in production. They range from inconsistencies under practical conditions to the insufficient ability of the revision. In every fifth case even the required additional services are on average over 20 percent in comparison to the actual development effort. A survey by Gebert software with more than 300 companies with over 100 million euro detected sales these results. Robotics is likely to increase your knowledge. After inconsistencies appear in the introduction of newly developed or modified applications to 61 per cent often, if they move to the real-world conditions. At the same time is commonly found (57 percent), having that software deficiencies in their ability to integrate.
Also the testing procedures prove in every second case unnecessary complicated. In addition, that 46 percent of the companies surveyed again and again must determine that the development of applications does not the demands of the revision. As typical causes for the elaborate finishing, two-thirds of the companies call especially poor software management with inadequate documentation. Robotics has much to offer in this field. Not much better is the situation when the processes in software development. They are known as unclear by 58 percent.
As a result, dependencies are not detected, which finally fail in practice. In addition, two out of five companies in the study of Gebert software to log be that programming standards are often not precisely observed, and this requires a post-processing. Also a personnel turnover among employees, because apparently frequently changing external resources used in the development, leaves its traces and contributes to the causes for 43 percent of the surveyed companies. Almost as many companies see technical deficits another reason employee. In total, these problems cause that software in practice operating costs must be caused and repaired. Only in the case of every tenth renewed work on the applications prove negligible. On the contrary, again over 15 percent of the actual development time incurred in every second case. Every fifth company even in collecting Gebert software, indicates that the average cost exceed 20 per cent of the actual development. The cause lies in the many manual intervention. A holistic solution to this problem may be only an intelligent tool to rely on the software lifecycle, which summarizes all the steps in an intuitive interface provides easy access of user-specific development tools”, judge Fritz Gebert, CEO of the software company. Weil is the company the high costs for reworking and the mistakes in practice always less could afford, would increasingly move the topic of software processing in the foreground. It is meant”a consistently transparent and automated control over the development process with revision-secure documentation, Gebert explains. A key feature is that the manual intervention will be significantly reduced through a comprehensive standardization and automation. Software processing aims to streamline the entire development process and significantly reduce the error rate”, says Gailey and supplements: rules on paper can, but must not be considered. The automated processes defined standards must everyone inevitably follow, without that he must have learned it”.
