SD Times: The future of software development in 2018

January 2, 2018

I gave my thoughts on what 2018 holds for the future of software developement to the SD Times. You can read more on the topic in The future of software development in 2018.

For most of the past decade, key areas of technology have focused on improving developer productivity. I predict that as we move forward vendors will start to focus on a new group of users: data consumers. For every developer there are 10 data analysts, data scientists, and data engineers, totaling over 200M today and growing rapidly.

Everyone likes to say “data is the new oil”, and while products like Tableau have catered to the visualization of data, but there are many steps in the “data refinery pipeline” that are still IT-focused and 1,000,000 miles from the self-service that developers enjoy today with their tools. In 2018, vendors will start to close the gap, and focus on dramatically improving the productivity of this critical market.
