Technical debt is the result of technology implemented for short-term benefit. Often applications and solutions are built for speed of delivery, but actually end up consuming resources, creating risk, and stopping innovation.
OutSystems surveyed IT leaders around the world to understand their views of technical debt, its costs, causes and possible solutions. More than 500 IT leaders told us that technical debt is a problem they struggle with every day. We’ve compiled the findings into an infographic that displays the growing threat of technical debt and why it’s important for IT leaders to address it.
