How have your developers been affected by remote working?

Top Answer : At the company I was working with last year, we found that because the developers were remote, there were less interruptions for them. They were more able to focus. So whilst we may have lost some ground in things like user acceptance testing (UAT) and activities like that, we found we made up for it in terms of the developers’ increased ability and the productivity of the developments.

What real-time code detection solutions have you found success with?

Top Answer : We've been prototyping and testing Rapid7 and we like them. On the application security side, the code side, they're definitely good. We did find some false positives and you always run into that challenge early on when a new product is being launched. The piece that we have really focused on is automated penetration testing. That's become a key area for us: you no longer want to rely on Point-in-Time Assessments of what happened 1-6 months ago. There are a lot of technologies out there now that are doing a good job of continuous testing. We have pretty good control because our repositories are secure. There is a workflow around authorization in terms of how code gets deployed, 2% have to review it so there's manager approval.

In your experience, how do the most successful organizations overcome the low-code/pro-code chasm?

Top Answer : There's no proper solution. For most organizations, these two teams are working in silos. Some smart organizations are using Application Programming Interfaces (APIs) as a way for these teams to communicate, but it is not that successful. And if you've talked to developers, they’ll tell you about the frustration.  Most of the time low-code platforms are picked by technology leadership and the developers are asked to use them, it’s not their choice. Then the developers end up spending a lot of time. For example, one development team told me they had to click and wait for a certain amount of time. The efficiency is really low, as everybody is now discovering. That's why as a company we are trying to build a platform for our customers first and then make it a commodity and community after that.

Open for comment - what division (or aspect/project) of your IT organization has the greatest human capital constraints? ... Dev? Security? Innovation? Other?

Top Answer : That is a good question in the federal government it’s not always the human capital restraints it’s the regulations and compliance restraints which are there for a reason that are hard to meet. I would suggest to anyone reading this who wants to work or sell their product to a federal agency to educate themselves on what federal requirements your product or service needs to meet in order to even be considered. For example, cloud services as a IaaS, PaaS, or SaaS has to be FedRamp approved. I know this isn’t exactly what your asking but it may provide knowledge in other areas that could be restraints.
