We had a great set of converrsations recently with Sheeroy, Stu and a few others. The jist of it is the realization that there is a massive change going-on in the way business IT solutions are being built.
The interesting in these conversations was that the Automotive indutry seems to be ahead of the software industry with regards to these changes. I am not one to go into lengthy posts, so I'll try to summarize the big ideas that came out of the discussions:
- Leveraging a global worforce is well underway, and will continue.
- But the globalization of software development activities is not an end in it of itself.
- The next step beyond the global workforce will be a never seen before level of automation in the software production process.
