In the dynamic realm of software development, success isn’t solely about constructing impeccable code. It’s about grasping the process flow that wraps around the entire software-business domain – a domain that holds many more challenges than what traditional “developmental problems” confine.


Why dive into Holistic Horizons?

Working in the software domain is no easy feat. Each day brings its unique set of challenges and compromises. But what if many of these challenges aren’t unique to just your business but are patterns observed across the industry? We hope that by reading these series, you’ll be able to recognize familiar patterns and relate them to what is happening with your business, gain actionable insights that you can apply to your day-to-day work and finally, be inspired to drive change in your organization.


In our new series, Holistic Horizons, we will:

  • Highlight the challenges that we often see in the software business domain.
  • Demystify the myth of the “silver bullet” in software solutions.
  • Advocate for the game-changing power of a holistic perspective in software delivery and development.
