It seems like just yesterday when Apple announced its first iPhone and dramatically changed the way consumers look at technology. But, believe it or not, the first iPhone debuted in June 2007 and, in the eight years since, technology has rapidly changed. In fact, technology has advanced so much, in less than a decade, that smartphones are now common place (with nearly 65 percent of American adults owning one) and IoT technology has taken its place as the next big thing.

With the rise of technology, has come an associated rise in software development. Now, more than ever, enterprises are struggling to keep up with software demand, and we can see this on a small scale if we look at mobile app development alone. According to some experts’ estimates, 85 percent of companies have a mobile backlog of up to 20 apps.

When we take the backlog of mobile app development—which is just one type of the multitude of software development projects out there—and we add it to the software being written, tested and completed for computer application and new technologies, it’s easy to see that there is something inherently wrong with the way enterprises are going about developing these new software solutions. Enterprises aren’t effectively estimating their projects and as a result they aren’t allocating enough resources or time, which in turn is causing backlog. In order to fix this software development problem, enterprises will need to re-evaluate how they execute project estimates.

To help, AAJ Technologies is hosting a webinar to discuss the 10 things you should consider when estimating software development projects, presented by our Vice President of Mobility and Enterprise Solutions Alex Barenboim. His talking points will include project estimating best practices, and the importance of performance testing and infrastructure needs, just to name a few. Barenboim will be hosting the webinar on Tuesday, August 11 from 1:30 p.m. to 2:30 p.m est.
