RESEARCH REPORT - EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

THE FUTURE OF REMOTE WORK AND SOFTWARE DEVELOPMENT

SINCE THE IMPACT OF COVID-19 IN EARLY 2020:

  • 52% – INCREASED ACCELERATION TO THE CLOUD 
  • 46% – EXPANDED CROSS-FUNCTIONAL TEAMS
  • 59% – DEVELOPERS ARE MORE PRODUCTIVE
  • 64% – PLAN TO WORK REMOTE  3+ DAYS / WEEK

Research based upon 347 responses across 23 countries / regions, 20 industry verticals, small-to-large organizations, in individual contributors and leadership roles.

Under less-than-optimal conditions, organizations rose to the challenge to rapidly support remote work due to COVID-19. 

This research set out to answer three important questions:

  1. Were software teams in the organization working remotely prior to COVID-19 restrictions?
  2. Have the use and importance of remote work tools and applications changed since COVID-19 restrictions were implemented?
  3. In what ways has COVID-19 informed and changed organizations’ ability to create software?
